The weathermen kept promising the "S" word.. and it came this afternoon!! Big beautiful snowflakes. We're cozy in our little farmhouse with the fire blazing. We have chili beans simmering on the stove - I'm going to add sauteed ground beef, chopped green pepper and onion and lots of tomatoes and chili powder, some cumin and red pepper and Tabasco. :-) Perhaps some cornbread to accompany it. Mmmm.
Here is a photo of the snow falling in front of the red barn.
This big pretty hydrangea wasn't prepared for this! LOL
Here is a pot of still blooming Blue Lobelia. Not for long!
I've been organizing my yarn stash... oh my! I better get some projects done to use up some of this soft and pretty yarny delicious-ness!
I got inspired by the lovely Vanessa from "doyoumindifiknit" - she's doing this really fun pointy diagonal stripe scarf pattern to share with all of us.. meantime I think I have the "secret" of it figured out and have started a holiday one of my own. I'm not going to divulge the secret, but this is what mine looks like so far... the fun idea behind this design is that you end the scarf on a point and the other end is a point too. :-)
And here is one of my crochet Christmas stockings that I designed myself...
Below is a tiny stocking ornament I make for my kids and grandkids with their initials on them. These are definitely fun! I love seeing them on the tree, along with my hearts.
I hope you're having a wonderful day, evening or week, wherever you are on this grand spinning globe we all share! ((hugs)) Teresa
Thought you might want to see how the chili turned out.. :-)
