While Joe and Mark were playing lumberjack, I had lots of time to sit in front of the fireplace and knit. I finished another pair of mittens that are destined to be another Christmas gift.
When we left St. Catharines it was raining. When we finally got to the cottage 4 and a half hours later, there was about 6 inches of snow on the ground. The puppies were in heaven all weekend!!
I think the most fun was when I was trying to sweep off the deck. I had both dogs barking at me because they wanted me to throw the snow ON them. By the time I was done, the dogs were white, I was laughing and the Joe and Mark were inside the cottage laughing at us.
I love the view from the deck, even when there's snow on the ground. Unfortunately, I couldn't convice Mark to take down the trees that obscure the view to the lake.
Now that we are home it is SERIOUSLY time for me to get to work on several Christmas gift projects. I've been totally procrastinating. I have already told Joe, that no matter what, next weekend I have stuff I need to work on. I also need to write Christmas cards and get the tree up.
Back to reality now.
