Snow Day

My world is a monochromatic postcard today....in shades of white and grey. The morning started out foggy...then the fog froze on the trees and gave the world a frosted appearance. Now it is cold and snowy...a great day to stay indoors and play. The "girls" and I braved the snow and went for our daily walk. It was quite beautiful...austere and beautiful. I would be sewing now, if it weren't for the fact that my machine is in the hospital. I thought of paying it a visit today....but decided instead to just wait for its' recovery, when I can finally bring it back home.

I think today, instead, I will start to work on turning last summer's gourds into bird houses. They are finally all dry. The first step will be to scrub off the mold that has accumulated on the outside and then decide how I want to finish each. Once they are dry, I will get to play with power tools... and I love power tools!

I thought I would show you how those sprouts are coming along. I have just simply rinsed them and drained them....allowing them to stand in about a teaspoon of water...two or three times each day.

Lovely pictures, Bev. We had that weather last week. The gourds look interesting. Are they ornamental, or will the birds really use them?

Oh, and I didn't know that about paper towels. We put ours in our compost bin, and I didn't know they were harmful, eeek!
