Ms. Madame Cold Winter answered LOUD and clear with drifting snow…freezing rain and ice…more snow on top of the ice…and frigid cold. Currently it is 7 degrees….wind is blowing a bit between 5-15mph…so it is a nice balmy bone chilling cold tonight in Juniper.
Ok Ms. Madame Cold Winter thank you for showing up but it is time now for you to head back home to the Hinterlands of the North…please or I will be forced to make you drink a nice hot cup of tea or something to warm you up all over.
Ms. Cold would you like to ice skate a bit tonight? It looks divine…a perfectly good time of slip sliding and fall on your patootie:)
Or how about a nice hot warm your tummy up kind of soup….I promise it will melt your heart:)
Living the isolated stuck in the house during a freak winter storm kind of day…you have to figure out creative things to do with your brain and time so you do not die of boredom or sit and chew your lip all day…so today I made ear rings…beading is fun and can take the ho-hum away:)
This is a picture of my process and how I decide which beads I want to use…first I put several beads together…I then look at the colors and light…hold them up to my ear…hmmmm…then I fiddle with them some more…and finally decide if they are right or not. The best thing about beading is that when you get all gussied up for a rare night off the ranch and your jewelery does not match your mood…you can whip up a pair of ear rings and off you go sparkling and shinning…looking darn nice!
Minnie Matilda agrees…she is safe and snuggly in her quilt and happy that I am stuck in the house with her:)
In closing tongight…when Wild Bill was feeding the ponies all three of our amazing Aussie Dogs came to visit me…they are in and out of the shop all day…of course today they never left the shop until Wild Bill fed…and yes they have nice warm dog houses with lots of blankets to snuggle down in at night…and they own the garage too…anyway…Dash is the blue merle male and he is the biggest…Tucker is the red merle female and she is the boss lady dog…don’t mess with her…and then there is Kiah who is the female blue merle that is always so dang cute…she is only a bit over a year old…so she gives poor Dash and Tucker a run for it…she is the young’un.
Tucker sitting with “Her” toy to the right of her…go ahead and make her day…she is “very” territorial about her toys and space.
And here is the cute kid Kiah….”Huh? Did you want me or can I play with Tucker’s toy???”
“Tucker’s ploy…c’mon Dasher…dare ya!”
“Yah-yah I sees it…should I do it?” “Where is that darn Kiah when I need her?”
“Ohhhh I’m so cute…I’m so cute and Mom loves me…I’m so dang cute”
Dasher sees it and wants it and ohhhh what do I do…”KIAH…go for it!” But Kiah is only thinking one thing…”Mom thinks I am soooo cute and wellllll…hee-hee”.
Minnie is content watching the entire doggie game out the window and wonders….”Dogs…ding dongs and why do they lick themselves?
Stay warm and cozy where ever you are tonight…stay safe if you travel.
