Old Man…

Old Man winter has arrived!

Yesterday was our first snow storm of the season. Surprisingly the Ridge didn’t get as much snow as other parts of the province but there is enough to play and slide in so that’s all that really matters.

My boy adores the snow and spends much of his time looking exactly like this.

Molly on the other hand is getting older and can be seen shivering when she’s been outside for a while. I caved and bought her a winter jacket this year that will hopefully keep the cold off a bit.

Shepherd’s have such deep chests though and getting a jacket to fit right is challenging. There may be a hand knit sweater in her future as well.

My girl has been enjoying the snow too. Her favourite snow activities include shovelling and clearing off the car haha How long will that last?

A snowy day is also a perfect time to do some swatching, frogging of old projects and finishing up current projects in time for a fresh start in the new year.

What are you plans for the final weeks of 2013?

  1. I think it must be a small child thing. I have friends with children that live in places where it snows and their kids all love to shovel.

    Here, no snow. It will snow once in a blue moon. Maybe. We did, however, have our orange and lemon trees freeze so our fruit is defunct for the season. ::sigh::

  2. Your daughter in the snow is the perfect Christmas card photo op!
    Poor Molly! But her coat is so nice! Every winter I wonder why I haven’t knitted my dog a sweater…. then I peel my sweater off of my sweaty body and remember. :) .

  3. Looks like you will be having a lovely white Christmas this year! Here we had snow, then it melted off so we had slippery ice for a long time… Love the doggy pics and great to see T having fun! A doggy sweater sounds wonderful. I’ve been toying with the idea of knitting dog sweaters when we actually do get a dog.

  4. Love Molly’s sweater and T’s cute hat! you want more snow…you can have some of ours. sheesh it is over my knees everywhere!
