Interesting Christmas | Celtic Cast On

Well Christmas has gone once again and it has been an interesting one here. Last weekend we had a huge ice storm, we had freezing rain for 3-4 days continuously. Everything was covered in a coating of ice, the trees looked beautiful sparkling in the sun albeit a bit heavy and drooped.

Old Man… | Celtic Cast On

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.

Poolside | Celtic Cast On

This summer I’m spending part of everyday poolside. Its the first year that T is in a swimming lesson that isn’t mom and tot so while she is working on her rocketships and front floats I have idle hands. It hasn’t really been great knitting weather.
