Imagine Chances reaction to the ice that covered the local “Mill Pond” yesterday.
This is Straight Lake at the Mill Pond..I am not sure if the big lake is frozen yet..probably not.
Winter has arrived, there has been just a little snow overnight..the ground is not quite white. It looks like our “third snow” is the one that will stay till May. Oh well that is only six months away. Six months of cold, six months of snow, six months of dreary days that is how we “do” winter here in Minnesota. I have to remind myself it is a privilege that not everyone has, I am lucky, very very lucky.
It has been so dreary that we finally moved our woodcarving into the house..it makes a bit of a mess..but it will keep Far Guy sane. I have half a million projects to do and could keep busy for years, but I will carve too, at least until the Christmas tree takes up the carving spot.
Yesterday we went to a local craft show, I bought a hand embroidered dish towel from Vi a neighbor..she threw in a jar of Wild Plum Jelly! Then we went to the Fish Decoy Carvers Show..let me tell you ..life is really exciting up here in the wintertime:)
