Not ready for winter


Not ready for this yet.
This morning minus 12 C.
And I've read in the newspaper
that we probably will get snow these days.
Hope they are wrong.

My DD is coming home for the weekend today and I am soooo looking forward to that. We are going to have a great relaxing weekend together. And when it is so cold outside I will enjoy my stitchery. Perhaps I will find my Joy of Life quilt and start quilting on that one again. Good to have a quilt in the lap to keep me warm, but I do not know if my shoulder allows me to handquilt now.

Saying for today:

A daughter is a day brightener
and a heart warmer.

It is cold here too - minus 8 C - and I hope the snow will hold back for a while yet.
It is perfect weather for hand quilting with a big mug of tea and a fire in the oven.

Enjoy your visit!

I Nordfjord er det 0' og litt snø, tidlig med snø i oktober! Ha ein god dag.

Oh I believe you that you are not ready for this - me neither. And I wont complain about our temperature anymore - we had 0 C this morning. But on the other side winter time is sewing time ;-)

Hello May, oh my, minus 12, I cannot imagine how cold that is! We are in the middle of Spring and today was just lovely, 25 degrees celsius and lots of sunshine. Your weather is perfect for indoors and stitching! Have a lovely weekend, Ann ~ Australia

Minus 12 !!! I though I read the thermometer incorrectly!! I cannot imagine how cold that is!
We are expecting 29 C tomorrow and I am going to melt!

Have lots of fun with your DD.

Love the saying.

Is this your daughter who is a photographer?
How about making a pot of soup or stew? That seems warm and cozy on a cold day.
What a blessing to have a daughter!

Oh, I would not want your cold! We have had some night frosts here, but days are still quite good. But it will be nice to be by the fire, I like that part of the winter.

UFFDA.... Her var det kaldere enn hos oss i nord

Katherine said...

Winter is on its way here, too. There have been a few snowflakes today and the sky looks ready to deliver more.
I'll just go back to my quilting because that makes the weather less bothersome. ;o)

Enjoy your time with your daughter. Stay warm and have a happy day!

Sunday it was cold and rainy and the rain had an icy feeling to it. Right now, though, we are having what we call Indian Summer - it's 21C here! It only lasts for 2 or 3 days and then we'll get hit with winter. It snowed in Canada and on the northern US/Canada border. Our weather usually comes down from there, so winter is on it's way. Make some cocoa, pull out that stitchery, and have fun with your dauther!
