Ice Ice Baby!

while attempting to go for a morning walk,
(read: iceskating through the woods!)
I brought my camera along again...
The Winter Woods are a beautiful, if not dangerous, place to be~
I made sure that I dressed in layers,
wore my good rugged boots with non-slip soles,
carried a pocket-warmer in each coat pocket
made sure to slather on moisturizer
and plenty of my Burt's Bees lip balm...
...the crackle of the ice high atop the trees
and the snapping of branches is really what you have to watch for,
and of course, your footing on slippery rocks & leaves...
I walked a good hour, 1/2 hour in and a 1/2 hour out...
I was warmed by the excersize, my heart rate was up and It felt invigorating!
My little cheeks (on my face silly !!!)
were ruddy from the cold air
and I couldn't wait to get back into the house
where my stitching waited patiently for me...
I'm stitching up a couple of little sampler pinkeep/pillows for eBay,
hopefully I will have them finished by tomorrow eve~
Stay Warm Friends,
P.S. I'm working on a little free cross stitch chart for you all,
that should be ready tomorrow too!!!

What beautiful pictures but I know treacherous traveling. Can't wait to see the new stuff you are working on. Stay safe & warm.

yep...treacherous but beautiful! My walk consists of walking to the pond below the house to bust ice for horses...then packin' in the daily supply of wood! LOL
I had LOTS of birds our back this morning...I got a few pics but apparently they are camera shy...they didn't get too close...until I put the camera away!
Look forward to seein' your new things! I'm workin' on a mini-quilt!
