It's a Good Thing!

That I like snow!

INUK is getting a bit tired of shovelling this white stuff.

We were supposed to get about 4" on Saturday night. We got somthing more like 10" - then another 3-4" last night and this morning.

Like I said - it's a good thing that I like snow. It's the dreadful cold temperatures that I don't like.

Johnny doesn't like them either - he wouldn't even lift his head for the picture - no way - if I hide under here - it might all go away.

The birds are happy though. I filled all the feeders for them last night. The dolly cart tipped up is actually protecting a ground feeder that keeps filling up with snow. So far this winter, we
have blue jays, cardinals, piliated and downy woodpeckers, juncos , sparrows, turtle doves and
goldfinches to name a few, along with deer, possums, raccoons and squirrels all frequenting the feeders.

On another note - we have been working on my studio/garage this past few weeks. It's starting to come together nicely. My husband and I worked through this terrible cold snap to get the
old garage door taken down - and the doors and windows on the front put up.

It's starting to come together nicely. The door and windows are recycled from a friend's house when he did renovations. I also have some more windows and another door from him - they will go into the back wall so that I can look out at the pond while I'm working. The glass in the door and windows is all bevelled - it's from a 1920's Arts and crafts house - gorgeous stuff.

It's much warmer in there now (notice the kitty door in the corner for the stray cats). I scored a wood pellet stove online last week - along with 30 bags of wood pellets - so we have been working to get the area finished that the stove will go into (the stray cats will love that).

When it's done in the spring - there will be an area for my pottery studio - as well as an area for washing and cleaning fleeces.

I'm going to be out of town for the next few weekends at pottery workshops - but will get back to it as soon as I get the chance.

Oh - and stay tuned for my new pottery blog. After many requests - I hope to have it up and running sometime in the next few weeks. Until then......... think warm!!!

Your studio looks awesome, and heat, too. Guess you will be needing that for a while. It will be wonderful when it is finished.

I like your blog's new look - and am trying not to be jealous of that wonderful-looking new studio space!
