ten














  1. A thick blanket of white frost and a minus 3 this morning.
  2. I think I need new ugg boots. Or patches? We've had a good four years together and your orange stripes tell me that you are really much older than that.
  3. Morning sun. You would never guess at the temperature outside.
  4. Wondering if I really could tackle an Elizabeth Zimmermann pattern. Could I?
  5. My only window sill herb. Thinking that I'd like to add more.
  6. The smell of vegetable stock made from scraps wafting through the house.
  7. I love to see my kids read. Even sweeter to spy them reading to their little sister.
  8. The last of the roses for now. Are they dormant over Winter? I really should read up.
  9. Still climbing. Only one minor injury so far.
  10. There is nothing warmer in Winter than wool handknits. My needles would never be able to keep up. Thank goodness for these (increasingly rare) op shop finds. It has taken several seasons to collect a nice stash of jumpers for home.

Wishing you all a pleasant day in your world.

Wow, you are cold there!
Sure you can knit an EZ sweater. If you run into trouble just ask, and we can all figure it out together! :)

So wintery and cosy down your way. good luck with the knitting, at least a complicated pattern is a good excuse to sit for a while with wool all over your lap and a cuppa. melx

Minus 3? And here I was thinking is was chilly in the Flinders this morning: 1*C when I woke at 6am. Nothing wakes you faster than stepping outside for a quick (and I mean quick) breath of fresh air at that time of the morning!

Our lowest temperature so far this winter was a chilly 2.5 degrees. The kids ran around with dooners attached to them and dramatised about how freezing it was and I laughed at how I told them that growing up in Ireland 2.5 degrees was a balmy winters day! You have a beautiful blog with photos that inspire me to appreciate the simple things surrounding me.

The climate where you are must be very similar to here. We too have been in the minus' with glistening frosts coating the ground most mornings.
Beautiful photos yet again Tania. x

I agree with you, there is nothing so warm as wool in winter.
All my jumpers are wool, synthetic fibres just don't cut it for me.
It it great you found some in your op shop adventures.
