It feels like we're in a bit of a time warp. Outside it looks like Christmas...we've had so much snow this week it's unreal. Can you see my neighbour's black cap near the top of this photo?
Here's a close-up, you can see his cap to the right and top of the picture below. That's how high our snowbanks are!
It isn't very safe for little kitties to be outside so ours are only allowed out with an adult present.
Maddie wasn't sure what to make of these snow mountains!
Inside, it's been feeling like Christmas as well with all these gorgeous seasonal Hoffman prints on my table.
Yesterday I watched the women's hockey game between Canada and the U.S. and in the excitement sewed so fast I got my blocks all done. Yay Canada, a great game and a well deserved gold medal!
This afternoon our men's hockey team plays the U.S. in the semi-finals; if the pace is as lively as yesterday I am hoping the blocks will be joined together by games end. The coach's good advice to his team today? :
