This morning it's snowing again. In fact, it hasn't stopped all morning and we're getting pretty much ground coverage. Temp is 25 F and I just got a notice that the college (where I take my pottery) is closing early today and will be closed tomorrow... so no class tomorrow.
But on a good note: One of our young black feral cats who was born in our yard and grew up here went missing about a week ago. We noticed this right away as he and his sister were always up front by the bay window looking in and watching us (they are about 8 months old). Suddenly she was alone. We worried about him as he was not a skittish kitten and would run right up to the window if we tapped it. We call him *Braveheart*. Anyway after a week of missing him (and in these below freezing temps), he finally turned up yesterday. (Secretly I've been praying that he was alright somewhere - so was really happy to see him.) We would really like to know where he was, but guess we never will. He's not talking, but he is acting a bit more skittish since he returned.
Here's a pic of my first finished doggie quilt. For a first it's not bad - has a few puppy squares and some squirrels and a few birds...
