Chilly Weather & Nice Mail

It has been extremely cold over the past two weeks.


This was the temperature at 8.30 am.


Look at the lawn.

The worst part about having frosts is it has killed many of my plants as well as the lawn.


 When I went to get my mail later today I received a lovely squishy from Cat. She had a giveaway which I was lucky enough to win.





Lots of gorgeous fabric, braids and some antique buttons that were her Aunts.

  8. Yikes! I was complaining about the cold up here in Brisbane but nothing like yours. I don't like the cold. I particularly don't like cold, dark days. We had a few last week and I went into a rapid decline! Well done on your win!

  13. Fun to win something and your sure to find good use for them! Oh I hope the cold doesn't hurt your plant. It has been raining again here in Des Moines. I think we have had 6 inches of rain in 7 days. It's getting serious for the farmers and people who have homes and have business in low areas.
    Have fun with your new goodies!
