Just Thinking Around

 It's snowing today and everything outside is white.  School was not delayed.  I like to check my district website to see if all schools are closed.  I think I might  be able to remember that elated feeling I used to get when they'd call a snow day!  Ha ha ha!  I do feel good on snowy days.  I even scrubbed the shower tiles while I was taking my shower.  Yesterday I was very tired because Timothy jumped on Bill's face about 1:30 am. YIKES!  I felt nap-ish all day.  
 I did go for a walk along the ridge even though I felt sleepy.  Winter is very brown here in Colorado as you can plainly see.

This morning called for a Youtube fire.  Tim peered out the window. 

Yesterday I wasn't going to knit, thinking I'd give my knitting muscles a tiny break.  I still reached for some works in progress and added some pink to this pretty scarf.

 This is my first attempt at Norwegian mitten knitting.  I made a few mistakes, but even so I think it is beautiful.  Now on to the second mitten (yikes).

I smell the stew meat in the oven.  Stew is a great January snow day meal. 
Thank you answering my January questions and leaving such fine comments.  I think I'll go a visiting around blog world right now.
God be with you this day.  I pray you would see Him and feel Him.

On cold days I also like to put on a youtube fire. I like to hear the crackle and the glow even though I know it's not real. Those will be awesome mittens. You have good knitting skills. Enjoy your stew. Yummy! ♥

Those Norwegian mittens are gorgeous! You are so talented! We are having quite a strange winter here too, not much snow, although we did get a nice snowstorm Sunday night. I love to cook stew during the winter, makes the house smell so wonderful! I have never used a youtube video for a fire, sounds comforting! Blessings and hugs :)

I know what you mean about the nappish part. This weather does that. Love the mits!

That looks like some complicated knitting. It sure is pretty.

The mittens are so pretty. I would love to knit or even crochet...think I've said that a dozen times already. Winter may be brown there but your posts are always warm and pretty.

I can hardly imagine how it would be to have a kitty jump on my face when I was deep in sleep.
I like your knitting. That delicate pink yarn is so lovely.

I am very expressed with your first attempt at Norwegian mittens. Looks fabulous to me. Why is it that, the Norwegian design makes them look warmer than if they were plain?
Thanks for visiting and for the sweet comment about my stencils wall.
God bless you.
Connie :)

No wonder you feel nappish, that was a rude awakening at 1:30 am, lol...
We have lots of snow from this last snowstorm and the fire is crackling in the wood stove. It's very cold outside and a Youtube fire wouldn't work here... It -16 ℃ and feels like -25 ℃
or 5℉ and feels like -13℉.

I love your Icelandic mitten, it looks like a lot of work.

Have a great weekend. Hugs, Julia

I am blessed and lucky enough to have a fireplace for those snowy days....now if I could only learn to knit! lol
It sounds like you are having a good day and Colorado really IS brown thus time of year.
Have a great day! xo Diana

Those mittens are pretty and look very challenging. Here it's mild, not feeling seasonal at all - I long for snow, a cold snap - a reason to wear wellies and warm scarves. We have weather warnings ahead of snow so am hopeful.

Stew is a great January snow day, or cold day, meal.

All the best Jan

I always enjoy the first mitten or sock, and not so much the second one :) Your Norwegian mitten is stunning - love the pattern! Yes, it's a brown time of year. We do still have greenery in the grass -- weeds and herbs and such, but we are in a warmer zone than you. Cold today. Be sure to get in your dosages of tea, naps, and fireside, Pom :)

That mitten is gorgeous! I know, I always feel it's a little daunting to start the second one :)
