Outside my window right now, the wind is blowing at a good clip, about 20 MPH and the temp is only about 7 degrees above zero (and I see now that we are under a Windchill Advisory!). Was it only yesterday that I was talking about a winter thaw? Oh, my, how old man winter does love to tease us!! So in the spirit of good humor, I got this idea for my version of the groundhog. Of course, she would be a lady groundhog. I looked into my backyard and there were swirls of snow and bare trees. The clothesline I tied between two trees is still there but frozen stiff. But what if in the middle of my backyard there was gold........as in "Goldie the Groundhog". Sure enough, here she is..................
I'm trying to stay warm in my sewing room today although the cold wind seems to be making it's way right through the windows and walls. Brrrr! Time for a hot cup of cocoa. Hope you are having a fine day and looking forward to spring. After all, the days are getting longer and the sun does shine, even if it is cold outside. Tomorrow's another day and it is to be even colder so I am going to warm it up a bit with some musical memories and Valentine tales. See you then!
