Baby, it's cold outside!

Yes, I am a wuss. I know that some of my Blogger friends deal with this on a regular basis. But I don't and I am here to tell you that it is officially cold outside.

That's the thermy right outside my very own kitchen door. Brrrr!

And here's a vision of the sun shining through the icy trees in my back yard last night.

I thought the sunrise was amazing this morning until I realized that I was viewing it through an increasingly foggy glass part of my door as I waved goodbye to Friend Husband yesterday morning. Once I got a good look at it, I realized it was the standard lovely sunrise as seen through glassy trees. (When you look at it through the foggy glass, it's pink and blue and yummy.)

So, I've been in the house. I should should should be quilting. I am knitting instead. I decided to knit coasters instead of dishcloths for a couple of my church lady friends (this year I'm giving them all knitted dishcloths for their birthdays. Except for the ones receiving coasters.) Those babies just pump right out and they are adorable. Sadly I don't have a picture of them but I will, soon. I'm using the Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth pattern, but only knitting half of it. I even knit in the absolute dark last night on my way (with Friend Husband) to try out a new Indian restaurant. And I didn't make a mistake. Yes, I'm gloating. I like new skills.

And the Indian food was marvelous! Occasionally I will get a "spice buzz" after eating something wonderful. I had a good spice buzz going last night. Oh. Yum. Good place: Bombay City Restaurant on Wooster Pike, just past the Kroger in Mariemont, if any of you live in the area and want to give it a go.

Ta ta! Have a good weekend!

My word! Being a native Floridian, my joints would be frozen stiff in your neck of the woods. Too painful!
But it sure does look pertty! *Nope, I didn't misspell it. ;o)

Brrrrr is an understatement. LOL! Beautiful pictures.

Hiya Lori! I was reading your last few entries. LOL on the people looking at you strangely with your camera. Well, people will just have to deal with it, huh? You should see the looks I've been getting when I take my camera into places like Bath & Body Works and Kroger and take pictures of the produce! I am learning to ignore the stares. (well mostly)

Love the pictures of the snow and ice! :)

I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday. Hugs to you!
