Winter Reprieve

We are getting a little reprieve from the bitter cold. Since there is no school today the kids thought it would be fun to go sledding. Since I am a wimpy "stick in the mud" I did not think it would be fun. This afternoon I am thankful that Nathan has license and can take Ben and Hannah up to Herbert's Hill for some fun in the snow. Sometimes I have braved the elements and gone along, but not today.
I found a "grandmother" to make me some mittens. Yeah! She promises they will be toasty warm and last me many years. I can't wait to get them. They will be of brown alpaca yarn and sound just wonderful. (Thanks to Shelly for suggesting I call Andrea.) I'm sure there is plenty of winter left for me to enjoy them.
The pictures are from our Saturday drive down to the pier at Sodus Point. Of course we wouldn't dare venture out on the pier with it ice covered but it was pretty to look at. The few trees down there looked cold and barren but beautiful. You could almost believe that was sand on a Pensacola beach rather than snow in a NY winter.


  1. ohhhh Martha..I sooo love this tree..

  2. It does look like a sandy beach. And the pier looks awesome! I should drive down to see it too. :)

  3. Anonymous, are you Grandmanita?

  4. Oh Martha, beautiful pictures...

    Thanks so much for your comment on my post on new ministry.... I didn't realize you were a PK.

    Look forward to finding some elderly to visit too. BTW Elizabeth and I exchanged telephone numbers... the friendship grows.

  5. Brrr, it looks cold. I guess I shouldn't complain.

  6. The mittens sound very nice. Brrrr. I am still chilly 3 hours after taking Sherman for a walk!
