Springtime in the Rockies has delightful surprises for those of us who love it here!  Today is one of them.

snow day!

My life has been especially hectic lately, nothing to worry about but it’s been draining.  I’ve wondered how I was going to make progress on a few time sensitive knit projects, plan our family Easter Brunch, get my materials ready for my next technique demonstration  at my favorite yarn shop (tomorrow!) and do it all with a sense of fun.  Sometimes it is easy to let even joyful activities weigh me down.


However, when I looked out my window this morning I was given a lovely surprise.  I couldn’t see outside due to all the snow that was on the screen!  YAY!  A spring snowstorm!  First order was to call my husband and tell him, second order of business was to run downstairs, find a window that wasn’t covered with snow and look out upon my gift of a magnificently beautiful snow-covered landscape.  First thought was of beauty, second thought was …..knitting day!, third thought was “uh-oh, can I get to my nail appointment?”  That has since been cancelled so it’s knitting all day!!

I sat down to write this even before I made my morning pot of tea and nothing trumps my tea!  So next order of business is to fill the kettle.  As I wait for it to boil, I am going to luxuriate in my glorious, unexpected, beautiful snow day.  This is a day made for knitting and tea and wondering at the beauty of nature.  20160323_080626

    Thanks for sharing your delight for this unexpected gift!
    I think Mother Nature wanted to give me a day off.
    I am sleeping in!

  3. Kate, I have to figure out why your comment doesn’t have a ‘reply’ spot. Still figuring things out. It’s a lovely day and I’m thoroughly enjoying it! Hope you’re enjoying yours!

  4. Aha! Now Susan’s doesn’t either. This is definitely a learning curve but a fun one!

    Susan, I think you needed a break and we are all benefitting from it! My favorite morning tea is either English, Irish or Scottish Breakfast Tea and I like it nice and strong!

    What a drag. I’m so glad to miss that blizzard. Dangerous and depressing. I’m happier knitting with sunshine. Hope it melts FAST!
