Winter Has Returned

We have gone from temperatures in the high 50s and low 60s back down to as low as 5 this morning. It is actually at the high for today at 25!!! But there is no snow to go with the cold. Yesterday was so windy that I stayed inside all day and listened to the storm windows rattle. I had planned to spend the day sewing but considering that the studio and my bedroom are on the front of the house, I changed my mind. Can you guess which side of the house, the wind was hitting? To give you a clue as to the temperature difference int he house, my bedroom was reading about 57 and the living room was reading 67.

I spend a good portion of the day instead sitting on the couch while I made soup and knitted. I managed to catch up on quite a few podcasts yesterday.

I was at quilt guild on Thursday night and it was our annual white elephant auction. You bring in unwanted stuff and the money raised goes into our speaker fund. I was very good and brought in a bunch of patterns and left my checkbook at home. I had one check with me to pay my dues and two dollars in my wallet. I had the camera and my knitting. I had some one take a photo of me knitting to probe that I do knit in public.


I also took tons of photos that I need to edit and pick some to send in to the guild newsletter. But I had to take a few photo of the cake some one had made and brought in for the refreshments. It was a German chocolate cake but the topping is what made it special. There was another cake there but this one is the one that had only crumbs left. And no, I did not try the cake. I am not exactly a fan of Peeps.


And yes, that is a new sock in the photo. But I also frogged two socks yesterday that have been on the needles for over 6 months. So starting one new one is being good.
