Snow. It has been falling steady all morning.  I knit, and write, and I sip hot cocoa. This kind of cozy, relaxing morning is fulfilling to the soul. The world is very quiet on a snow day.  Watching the steady flow of softly falling flakes can be mesmerizing, leading to deep thoughts and philosophical contemplations. At least, that is how it is for me. This morning the snow along with the and the contemplation that comes with knitting have worked together to lead my mind to you, dear reader. I have known many of my readers for a little more...

I would love to spend a little time with you, my reader, on my blog today. It is a stormy day in upstate New York, and we are expecting snow a bit later in the week.

We were expecting freezing temperatures overnight a couple of times this week, along with a few evening snow showers.

However, I want to store and in some cases freeze some of them for cooking purposes throughout autumn and winter. Those worries led to an interesting dream the other night, some of it scary...
