The Calm Before The........'White Stuff'!!

      I can officially say: "The black custom crochet mittens...are done!" :-) And if the post office was open today...which it's not, because of the holiday...I'd be running to get them shipped off to their owner before the boat-load of 'white stuff' hits! O_O
      Yep!...There's a snow storm heading straight for us!! O_O They say we're bound to get somewhere between five and twelve inches!...So, I guess yesterday's calm in the backyard was the pre-requisite for tonight's storm!...You know, the proverbial 'calm before the storm'!

      It was really cold all day...and eerily quiet. Even the birds seemed to have disappeared...probably somewhere shopping for grocery supplies to hold them over through the storm! LOL...I'm joking around, but seriously...the animals 'do' give us a clue when things are going on!! And their absence from the backyard, after day-after-day of frolicking and playing, eating, and just generally 'hanging around' near the bird feeder should've been a clue to me that "A Storm Is Coming! A Storm Is Coming!!" O_O
      Certainly that beautiful sunset yesterday didn't give me a clue that anything was wrong!!...

      Of course, my not being as aware of anything coming might've been due to my singular focus on a certain pair of black crochet mittens! :-) ...

      Or should I say "two pair" of black crochet mittens! :-) ... Yes!...I made two pair! :-) I have to leave a pair in the shop, don't I?!! ^_^

      This morning I'm working on a certain floral 'free gift' for my customer. :-) Guess what it is, if you dare! ^_^  And no, it's not bigger than a bread box! LOL...I'm gonna have it ready to ship with the mittens first thing in the morning, when the post office opens, though!...

      Later today I'll be listening to some 'public talks' I have on DVD...All the while waiting to taste all of hubby's experimental kitchen 'concoctions' that he's all excited about having time to delve into...'Concoctions' is what I call the recipes now...'kitchen concoctions'. ^_^ I call them that matter whether they turn out delicious or detestable, they are always uniquely his concoctions!! ^_^
      I hope that whatever you 'concoct' today turns out as well...or that you have patient and loving 'samplers'. ^_^ Have a good day, Everybody! ♥


I'm feeling butterfly-ish.
Wanna flutter...move real slow.
Wanna wander...mind and body.
Not be fast, and 'on the go'.

I'm feeling like I need
a quiet day to hang around.
Have everything wrapped up,
and just block out surrounding sound.

I'm feeling butterfly-ish.
Wanna lay in bed till noon.
Wanna have some time to morph.
Need a tree and a cocoon.

Tomorrow they'll be time
to change and modify.
To spread my wings, add color,
like a brand new butterfly.


  1. We're waiting on the same storm! I thought it was suppose to hit last night and today...nope, tomorrow as I'm trying to get to work! Should be interesting! Love the mittens! Have a good day and stay warm and safe!

    1. Yep!...Waiting on storm Hercules to flex it's muscles at us! :-) It seems wrong somehow. LOL It just starting falling here. I fear it's gonna be a long couple of days!!...Stay safe, and keep your shovel at the ready! :-]

  2. Love the mittens!
    I'm amazed to see GREEN outside your window! We've just gotten 8-10" of the white stuff (the same storm that's headed your way) but already had about 8" on the ground. If there were no snow, it would be all brown and dead looking, so I'd rather have the snow!

    Be safe on your journeys out!

    1. Thank you, Anne!! :-) And no worries, there's no green out there anymore!! LOL We're knee deep in the white stuff right now, and it's still falling!!! They say we'll have 8-10 inches by the time it's all done....We'll see! ^_^...I'm sure you enjoyed 'Hercules' visit too, right?! :-]
