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.
