Best of Blogs;wrapping it up
My favorite part about the Best of Blogs contest was finding this website.
The proprietor of Hello yarn spins glorious yarn. I go over there and drool at the photos. Look at this!
If I were a clever blogger, that photo would be in the background of my blog. But alas, I am not a very clever blogger so you will have to use your imaginations :o)
Late lies the wintery sun a-bed,
A frosty, fiery sleepy-head;
Blinks but an hour or two; and then,
A blood-red orange, sets again.
Before the stars have left the skies,
At morning in the dark I rise;
And shivering in my nakedness,
By the cold candle, bathe and dress.
Close by the jolly fire I sit
To warm my frozen bones a bit;
Or with a reindeer-sled, explore
The colder countries round the door.
When to go out, my nurse doth wrap
Me in my comforter and cap;
The cold wind burns my face and blows
Its frosty pepper up my nose.
Black are my steps on silver sod;
Thick blows my frosty breath abroad;
And tree and house, and hill and lake,
Are frosted like a wedding-cake.
-Robert Louis Stevenson
This is the perfect poem for a January day in Wisconsin; it is below zero this morning. Burrr.....
I shall stay in the house as long as possible.
Matthew will be leaving this afternoon and driving to Nebraska.
If you are so inclined, please pray for his safe travels.
Wasn't that fun writing our lists yesterday!
I loved reading them. Thanks!
You are all very encouraging :o)
