Sanity Check

Every year, in mid winter, we question our sanity for living in a big tent in the mountains. And then we talk about getting an apartment in the city for a couple of months until the worst of the cold has passed. But we're hanging in there!! The woodstove is blazing, and we've had to crack out our back up propane heater for the nights that are bitter. This morning I woke up and my water glass next to the bed held solid ice...Aurora looked up at me plaintively from her water dish, which was also frozen solid. Brrrrr!!! We're concerned that maybe as we get older, we're losing our sense of adventure or that maybe roughing it is losing it's romance....No, that can't happen!! Never Say Die!!

I'm back to working on artwork for the spring show. I have 2 and 1/2 months until the show, and that may sound like enough time, but I have my doubts!! So I'm back in the studio in high gear!!

And here's another thing that's keeping me warm!! Check out this yummy goodness that I got from Twilight!! I got four beautiful skeins of her homespun beauty!! She's such a sneak...she bought these gorgeous rovings at the Taos Wool Festival while I wasn't looking!! She's a Goddess in disguise, I'm sure of it!!

I have no idea how a lupie can live in such a cold place. I live in a warm house and just going out in the cold makes me sick.
The yarn is amazing and can't wait to see what you make with it.
I wish you and your family a Happy Healthy and Warm New Year.
