I must be starting to sound repetitive talking about getting out snow shoeing. Truthfully, the thrill of being able to get back out there has not yet worn off after my past year of being stuck on the sofa while waiting for the hip replacement. This morning I organized my fridge and its freezer and packaged up a few things to add to the freezer. Ham and some sweets that I need put further out of my reach! Then, late morning we got ready and went snow shoeing this time going down into the woods and the more hilly terrain. So far I've been staying on the level trails. I'm still pretty slow and have to stop often to calm the burning muscles but I made it. Just over an hour. It's been a couple of years since I've seen these woods.

A couple of days ago I mixed up a batch of cookie dough for these pistachio thumbprints.

I love my fresh holly in it.We are having a snow day. It started yesterday. This was my front step at dusk. And the back deck.
View this afternoon through my sewing room window.
i mixed up a batch of dough for pistachio thumbprints, recipe found on Pinterest. I managed a wee bit of stitching on the runner. I think I'd like to add a little sparkle. The roads are cleared. A little while ago I went for a short walk. The sky is such a soft grey, turning pink at the horizon and there are big fluffy snowflakes floating down. It's beautiful!

I've been away front the blog and it's because I'm staying with my daughter and my new grandchild, Oliver, or Ollie as we call him.
