I live near the edge of the village, so this morning, my camera, stick and I went along the road to take a few photos of the countryside. The white countryside. The annual snowy Mill Lane photos.
The horses seemed quite happy out there in the field - they spent most of the time I was watching them grouped around the hay bales!
The snow deadens the sound, and there were not many cars around early. Right now, however, most of the village appears to be congregating on the hill on the other side of the village for tobogganing. My kids used to love that. It would have been even better had the sun been shining, but there is no sign of it, and more snow is expected. At least this will be a weekend outdoors for all the children!
I think I want to go and start something. No idea what. Something. I may pick up the crochet hook, if there is any wool left in the stash. Did I mention that Granny is finishing a beautiful blanket every week? We are taking them to the shelter for the homeless nearby, and they are so very grateful for them all. They are stunning. But I need to grab some wool before her blankets eat it all up.
Keep warm, everyone, and have a lovely weekend!
