Mother Nature gets our attention

Lots of snow this past week, and now the bitter cold, as schools were closed in Cleveland and across the midwest. Can't miss taking the dog on her twice daily constitutional, but definately a harrowing experience for any exposed body parts, my ears are still trying to come back to life!

Check out the socks on my pooch, Bella! She has such furry paws that we have to protect them from snow.

Walking in the beautiful metropark across from my home becomes a religious experience at times. Light filtering through the trees, snow sparkling like diamonds, freezing air that smacks you in the face. No gym workouts for me! Of course, it is hard to work the abs, unless you are slipping on ice that is!

And then there are hopes for spring, my paper whites bulbs finally have blossomed.
And just like hopes for spring, my hand is healing nicely too! Typing has been good exercise, and while, I haven't spent any time crafting, it has been a catch up on bookeeping and data entry for hubby. And job hunting, as we are falling short each month. I keep that one in prayer, but I welcome others as well.
Below zero and wind chills in dangerous level, but I promised daughter I would take her skiing. So I plan to hang in the lodge, maybe a good book as companion. She needs to be a kid, and enjoy winters' pleasures, just hope the cold doesn't kill the fun.
On a political note, any of you handmade crafters notice the new ruling that will take effect in February? What are you changing as a result? Do you feel fabric should be tested for lead by the crafter? Are you outraged that this law might take away a source of income for many? I have been reading blogs on the subject, but there is alot of confusion. More soon...
