We are getting pounded by a double snow event and I, for one, am super excited. Right now we have about 5 inches with yet a whole day to go for snowfall. The vistas are beautiful.
This weekend I fell down the rabbit hole of thinking what kind of challenge I would like to do during February. I decided that I would write a haiku a day. When I told my sister about the challenge, she said she would join me in crafting haikus. One of my Christmas presents from her was a handmade notebook. (I forgot to photo it..) So in the above crafted planner with a myriad of stickers I purchased from Michaels, I will jot down my poems then transfer them NEATLY into the notebook and do some kind of illustration. I'm not sure if the paper can hold paint, I need to ask her so maybe it will be inking only.
My knitting has been wonderful, slow and easy with this heartwarmer cowl. I love spending time on this project.
Yesterday my husband made a curry dinner and so I had the luxury of not cooking dinner and having dinner leftovers for another non-cooking day.
How was your weekend?
The snow is so pretty, isn't it? Right now we seem to be getting sleet rather than snow, but I am hopeful that the snow will pick up. They say we could get up to 14"!!! A curry dinner sounds wonderful - would your husband be willing to share his recipe? That is a fabulous color for a Heart Warmer!ReplyDelete
Lots of cleaning, painting and reorganizing. The closets are all tidy with fresh coats of paint where needed. The faucets were all taken apart and had the aerators cleaned. It was a keep-busy-inside kind of weekend.ReplyDelete
Have fun with the haiku.
We continue to get short breaks in the rain and my schedule has allowed me to take advantage of those breaks to get out and walk which has been a life saver. Love you gold yarnReplyDelete
The homemade notebook is quite attractive. What a lovely gift. Haikus always were a challenge for me. Hopefully you will post some of yours. Your snowfall looks lovely. So white and pristine. I love being outside when it snows. The world is hushed and peaceful.ReplyDelete
My weekend was spent cooking, grocery shopping, and getting ready for our snow that started yesterday afternoon. It's snowing hard now and isn't supposed to quit until tomorrow, but I'm getting a few minutes of knitting time in between going out to shovel. Have fun with haiku!ReplyDelete
Such a great challenge, Karen! I love haiku poetry. I can't wait to read your work! We had a quiet weekend which was much needed! : )ReplyDelete
A great challenge and a beautiful gift, a notebook is always a great gift. Have fun with haiku, I hope you'll share it with us.ReplyDelete
I love your challenge for the month. Enjoy the snow and not having to cook tonight! :)ReplyDelete
Enjoy you snow. We need more here in Utah and right now it feels like springtime outside. I love that notebook. I am a notebook and journal person. You haiku challenge sounds like fun. Hope you have a good week. See you again soon.ReplyDelete
I'm getting pummeled from the same snowstorm but I love it! I should have taken today off, it was totally a knitting, fire, tea and cranberry bread day.ReplyDelete
Your weekend sounds lovely so far. Looking forward to your haiku February challenge.
We have that snow surrounding us as well..ReplyDelete
I am envious of Frodo.
That snow event even was here in Pittsburgh!! Steve had a snow day yesterday and despite the shoveling, it was fun! I have one last section on my Heart Warmer... I want it done before the bone chilling cold arrives this weekend!ReplyDelete
oh I know you're loving the snow! and yay for a fun February project (with your sister) AND a break from cooking :-)ReplyDelete
My weekend was busy. I had a drawing event on Zoom, Torah Study, cross country skiing both days, and my usual Saturday evening social.ReplyDelete
The Heartwarmer Cowl is showing up in lots of places. Yours is very pretty. I'm knitting on my sweater because I'd really like to wear it.ReplyDelete
That's one pretty cowl. I've got the pattern all printed off and lots of fingering yarn in my stash so will give it a try soon. Enjoy the snow; we've had lots of rain in January and more to come this month. It's getting kind of soggy here.ReplyDelete
can't wait to see yours knitted up!Delete
I like justyna's pattern page. Wow. Lots of lovely work there .ReplyDelete
Yes, this winter has been good. I love the snow!ReplyDelete
I love that your sister made you a handmade journal! So cool and thoughtful. Love the event you're doing with her.ReplyDelete
