More Winter Pictures
The icicles on the "sunny" side of the house (stalactites) are making stalagmites on the ground. They are actually touching in some spots. The warm sun is melting the icicles and the cold temps are freezing the drops by the time they reach the ground. A real education on what takes decades to accomplish in caves.
I finished my "wine country" socks and put them on immediately. It's amazing how wool socks keep the whole body warm.
I love being retired and having the time to pursue all the things I had to put aside while I was raising a family and working full time. I am able to be there for my children and grandchildren, read as much as I can, watch old movies, garden like crazy, knit till my fingers bleed, take walks and bike rides with my DH, and did I mention read, read, read.
