Sunrise, flowers and the hope of snow.

Oooh the possibility of snow = two very excited children and I will admit a very excited me too. The lead up to the hope of snow has been decidedly chilly but the plus side is that we have had some absolutely stunning sunrises.

Here comes one now ….

It started like this



Then went to this breathtaking shade of fiery red



And finished like this with beautiful shades of blue and pink thrown into the mix


It was so beautiful that I took time out of sandwich making, hair brushing and wrestling Little Miss H into her clothes before school to stand in wonder for a few moments. Truly awe inspiring.

For my hooky project this week I have started making these quick flowers.  They are hooked up in no time and are a great stash buster. I was very lucky to have a whole basket of wool donated to me so I went through and picked out some gorgeous, slightly clashing colours and hey presto!

Once I start I can’t seem to stop. I wonder what they might end up as?

My beautiful day ended up standing under the light of this silvery moon.


Even better, when we woke this morning we were delighted to see a snowy wonderland in our garden. We don’t get snow very often so even a smidge sends us a little crazy! There has been snowman building, snowball fights with our lovely neighbours, sledge riding and sledge pulling and lots of running about making footprints in the snow. Although no snow angels so far! Photos may follow if my hands can defrost enough outside to work the camera!

Until the next time, keep warm and toasty.
