We are patiently waiting for our snow. Every day we check the weather, but we are still waiting. It's freezing tonight so perhaps we'll wake up in the morning to a world covered with an icy white blanket of snow. Until then though, I've got my crochet snowflakes.
I managed to convince my husband, earlier this month, that they were not Christmas decorations but more generally for winter, so they've been allowed to stay.
When the morning sun streams through the window, they cast the most intricately beautiful shadows.
They do make me smile, even on Blue Monday.
