We woke up to a gloomy 61F this morning but it didn't take long for the wind, drizzles and temperatures to show us a front was moving in and not a balmy one at that!
(I am pleased to say that Will slept undisturbed through the 2 hours of thunder and lightning during the night but sad to say, Lena did not!) The temperatures are reflecting this cold snowy front moving through our nation and while we will not even begin to compare with those storms up north, it is a bit of a jolt for us. Bill started a fire tonight after he worked this afternoon to protect all of our plants and flowers moving all the ones that could be moved close to the house in preparation for the freeze warnings for tonight!
I enjoyed the close of the day with some knitting time. Simple vanilla socks in the Gumball Handpaint Stroll fingering yarn from KnitPicks. The colors are short repeats and they flow like briefly appearing rainbows under my fingers..........
While the robins remind me that it is warmer here than where they came from, we all find it a bit less than tropical at the moment!
(These guys are late this year and while the yard has been filling up with these birds, they haven't come close enough for me to photo them. While this isn't the best pic, it is proof they are here!
And the yard is so joyfully cheerful with all their chatter and chirping!
