Playing Hooky

We are currently being spoiled by some unseasonably 
warm weather (50 degrees plus). 

*Not that I'm complaining, mind you.*

It has, however been difficult pulling myself away from the lovely sunshine 
{AND gorgeous green grass!!} 
to dig out the mess in the sewing room. 
Luckily, embroidery is portable and I'm slowly moving on the latest project.

Normally, at this time of year, we'd have a good foot of 'Lake Effect' snow 
on the ground everywhere, gray days, ice and no greenery until the spring thaw. 

I regularly obsess about retirement in a tropical location & try to make the best of 20 degrees below zero and harsh winds
that would chill you to the bones.

But not this year! We're having a
southern winter & it's delightful.
Eventually, we'll get back to what we do...
but for now, please bear with us as we 
soak up the sunshine
{and one of us, who shall remain nameless, points to some more ducks & geese}.
It's a very rare treat to have a warm day at the lake in January.
We'll be making the most of this good fortune, 
playing hooky.

All my best,


  1. Your puppy is so cute! I can't believe how mild it's been this winter. Only one afternoon of snow showers so far. The kids are slowly beginning to realize that they may not have any snow days this year. Bummer.
