I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to see flames in our propane gas fireplace again.  It heats 2/3 of the house, including the living room and kitchen.

Those rooms have been 42 degrees.  Banjo Man and I moved downstairs for eating and sleeping and tv-watching, but during the day I cranked up the electric heat in my office and worked on something that made me think of summer.

I love summer.

A snowball quilt was the perfect way to use those beautiful large print floral fabrics I’d been saving.   There are four sections, due to the small size of my design wall.

This is section 2.   I didn’t have enough of one perfect fabric to use for the corners, so I found four fabrics that worked and came up with a way to use them.

This is my very official chart and…so far so good.

Last night, with the fire burning brightly, we curled up on the living room couch and watched episode three of ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL.  I’d dvr’d it because Sunday night was the Bills/Chiefs game.  And who wouldn’t watch that football game!!!!!

Anyway…it snowed an inch or two last night.  I have Ebay sales to mail, errands to run, an annual doctor appointment and a few groceries to buy (let’s hope there is milk on the store shelves).  But as soon as that’s all done?  It’s back to my NICE WARM KITCHEN as our little world returns to normal.

How many days until Spring???

    Hallelujah! This is great news. Being without something gives us a new appreciation for simple blessings. Like warmth! I hope you’re basking in it.
