Winter started yesterday

After a rather dull autumn, winter is here.

You might not think so, since the leaves are still mostly on the trees and the daytime highs peak around 20 (68F), but there is a certain chill in the air now that wasn’t present last week. Yesterday I got out of bed and my feet quickly became icy as I sat barefoot at my desk. But more telling of the change of season: all the moisture is gone from the air. From now til May, I won’t go without hand cream, hair oil, and lip balm.

Definitely time to change the wardrobe to winter sweaters and warmer things. I want to knit again!

It snowed here yesterday in the higher elevations. Schools were closed! Here in the valley we got slushy rain and high winds.

I’m knitting an afghan. We’ll see how far I get with it. So far it looks like a really long curly bookmark.

It’s 38 degrees here this morning. The hoard of park squirrels have stepped up acorn collection.There must have been 20 of the furry guys at the base of a big oak near the parking lot and they were none to pleased to have me interrupt the gathering.

Yep, it’s winter in Ephrata, too. Brrrrr.
