The snow started falling on Friday afternoon and didn't let up until sometime during Saturday night. This picture doesn't do justice to the sight of horizontal white-out snow whipping past the window. One look outside convinced me that I wasn't going anywhere.
As I was stuck indoors all day on Saturday, I felt an irresistible bout of Martha-style Domestic Goddess coming on. This often happens if I can't go out anywhere..... it's the perfect antidote to Cabin Fever.So I finished knitting this "green" string bag, perfect for those last minute trips to the supermarket. My tiny contribution to the battle against plastic bags and global warming.... but please notice not much is being said about the afore mentioned global warming during our snowier than usual winter. Knitting pattern here. Thank you Lettuce.
And then... I decided that Chelsea Buns were just the ticket on a snowy day, but I cheated a bit by making the dough in the bread machine. I didn't have any raisins, and I certainly wasn't going shopping in a blizzard, so I added currants, dried cranberries and grated apple. Delectable.
The Space Cadet didn't waste much time before getting a product sample.
Sunday morning I could hardly get the back door open, the drifts were so high.
We shovelled our way to the sidewalk, where Mr Nice Nextdoor Neighbour was already out with his snowblower. We have a great arrangement.... MR NNN has the snowblower, and The Space Cadet has the key to Mr NNN's garage!
