In Like a Lion!

A co-worker at the library commented the other night that I didn't have much luck timing my evening shifts with the winter storms.  I've had some 'hold-my-breath-and-pray' rides home at night from work this winter.

However, let me say "I FEEL LUCKY TODAY!".  I'm off work for for 3 days.  We are supposed to receive between 15 to 30 cm of snow by tonight.  It's heavy wet snow that will be hard to shovel, difficult to plow or snowblow.

Walking out to the barn today was tiring.  We are conserving our energy for the hours of snow clearing ahead.

Winter weather is not all bad.  It gives me a day in the house to catch up on some things I like.

Like spinning....

And knitting...

It's a good feeling to have those dear to me inside my cozy home on days like this.
This is my cat Smokey, who has discovered his new favourite spot on a table piled with sock knitting yarn that is beside my computer in my craft area.
He 'works' with me and if I'm using the mouse...he takes the opportunity to hold my hand.  How cute is that?
Do you think my cat might be jealous of the mouse?

I have recently referred to myself as a "dog person" who is currently without a dog.  Smokey is definitely trying to fill that void in my heart.  I feel the love.

You were so smart to stay put and enjoy your day...wish I could say the same for myself! Cat might be wishing that mouse was real.
Beautiful colour on your wheel.
