Cold snow....

We have had very cold days for some weeks now...
around -20 C and lower...
went out and took some photos the other day...and the snow is so cold that you easily can see the shapes of the stars...
...pretty amazing...
...it is all white and fluffy....
...my backyard right now...
no tennis practising at the wall... :)
but I guess it will come...
And definetly no signs of spring...not even close...

Home alone ... (almost)
the guys is on tenniscamp... son as a participant and DH as a cook and physio trainer...
Middle daughter is at home to keep me company...
we are going to the movies tomorrow...
and see "Australia"...it is showing for the last days here...
And after that I hope I can get into a sewingmood!!!
Have a great weekend... :)

  2. I use to see snow stars like that when I live in the northern part of the United States - in Idaho and Wisconsin, but now that I am in the southern area (Arkansas) I no longer see that - I hardly ever even see snow! only once or twice a winter. We have daffodils open and the roses are getting leaves on them. Spring is around the corner :)

  6. Your snow flakes are beautiful. It is hard to believe that no two are alike. You should embroider one. It would be so beautiful and special.

  16. I sure have sympathy for you...I just got back from a quilt retreat where the temps were in the 20's (Fahrenheit) and I could barely stand it! I thought of you everytime I went outside! (But of course the 20's are much warmer than where you are!)

  23. Stina, your pictures need to be published. I haven't seen snow like that, well being from Texas you can understand why. Have a fun visit.
