It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost,
the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it.
~John Burroughs, "Winter Sunshine
The polar air has left and life is back to normal on the 48th parallel
Snow is expected over the next few days and we are all excited about the upcoming ski season.
The girls are happy to have their "super hero capes" off
and now their winter coats can grow in and warm them for the season
Craving citrus this time of year I always associate the winter with tangerines
or "clementiner" as we call it in Norwegian
As a kid growing up in Norway
the perfect lunch for skiing was clementiner and "kvikk lunch" (chocolate like kit Kat bar)
They would be nice and cold in the back pack...
nothing more perfect than cold citrus and chocolate when skiing in the mountains
if you are Norwegian it's sort of like a staple
Winding lots of yarn- getting my "knit on"
finding much joy in knitting baby clothes for little Lilliana
also Selbu votter for friends and family
The leaves have lost their color- but I find beauty in this too
Something really fun and unexpected
I actually won something,
not usually lucky like that
A beautifully hand dyed skein from MJ yarns presented by Andi.
I will be sure to enjoy this Thank you again Andi!
...and lastly I will be away for a while
having eye surgery this week and am exited to feel much better
( Mountain Girl yarns will be closed and reopen- once I get back into the swing of things)
Have a wonderful weekend
love to all
peace out beansprout!
