Hello! Well, we have had another snowstorm! Unusual for us as over the last several years we've had barely any snow. But this year we're catching up. Dayle, my esteemed assistant photographer, booted up and took the dog out for a nice long run and recorded some of the snow for us. How nice is he? This is heading off of our deck and out for a wintery stroll.
We have a big horseshoe shaped driveway, they headed that way, you can see the fields across the road.. they used to raise Black Angus cattle across there, now it's all flower fields planted by Laotian families and sold at farmer's markets all around the Portland area and outlying suburbs.
The snow is billowy on the azalea.
Our little farmhouse in the woods.. :-)
Snow on the Douglas Fir tree.
Oh how Buddy zoomed around.. looking for prey.. :-) His little legs got encrusted with snow and guess where he headed to when they came in out of the snow? My lap. Argh! And yes I let him stay there and warm up on me now I have a wet lap. :-)
Do you see Buddy's trail.. zoom..
Heading back to the warm house.
A shot from our bedroom out to the snowy forest, I took this and the next shot. I'm fine with staying warm while taking pictures. :-)
This shot is the view from my craft studio.. see the pond? No? It's frozen over and what amazes me is the koi and goldfish live through that.
I've gotten this far on my Women's March hat. Do you see the little dark spot? I'm SO annoyed.. a bit of the yarn is brown there. And then next to it is a join.. I've noticed the yarn companies are not doing a tie joy but seem to be gluing the two ends together.. have you noticed that? So, I have a brown spot and a fuzzy join. GRRRR. I'm going to make this side the back of the hat and I'm going to call KnitPicks and complain. One puts a LOT of effort into knitting an item only to have it look crappy due to the quality of the yarn. Grumble. Do you have trouble with things like this?
