No Rain, Snow or Sleet..................

This is our 5th winter in the California mountains and totally different than the first 4. We are close to 60 days now of zero rain, snow and sleet. While I'm loving this fantastic weather, I realize that we desperately need the moisture.

It really hits home when you drill your own well and want that water table to maintain it. We still have several more months of winter here, so we're all crossing our fingers and toes that some good snow falls very soon.

In the meantime, I'll continue to take my leisurely walks and enjoy the sunshine.

I'm back to building our sock inventory and just had to share a photo of this amazingly beautiful shade of blue. The yarn is called Yukon from Pagewood Farm. They're now in our Etsy shop but I really think they'd look better in my sock drawer!

We're experiencing the same dry and warm weather in Reno. Snow is desperately needed! Crossing my fingers for it, along with you.

only sunshine and blue skies in Sacramento. I clicked on your link at another site, it's fun to know where bloggers are from. I would love to see the antique sock knitting machine. Where on your blog to you have a picture of it?
