The view from my Front Door

showing our hedge that is in desperate need of trimming too. One of the few spots in the village that still has a field across from it. I can't begin to imagine what that piece of property is worth. When you consider that this house (in the next picture) sold for $850,000 BEFORE they did at least that amount of work on it to make it look like this (and it is a tiny tiny house and property- about the same size as our house and property) This house is just off to the right of the field you see in the first picture (this picture was taken a couple of months ago - which is why there is no snow there - really there is no Bermuda Triangle thing working here where snow is all over but not in their yard)

I am so envious of everyone who has such fabulous writing abilities in showing their front and back yards - I really stink compared to you all....

And now to my sweater swatch

pre-swimming it. I cannot get the colors to be true but this is as close as I managed to get it after many tries. I am still excited and terrified to begin - so today I WILL begin this just to get past the terrified part.

In fact yesterday rather than start my sweater I did an 8x8 square to be sent off to be part of a blanket. Still have to block that today and hopefully it will go in the mail tomorrow. Oh, what I will do to put off beginning THE sweater......

Great pics!

Good grief, I thought Phoenix was off the chart expensive.

...and you live in a village?...I'm jealous, that sounds so quaint.

I know you're probably sick of the snow, but it looks beautiful to me.

Remember, I live in perpetual summer in the desert. The grass is always greener...

Pretty colors for the sweater too...all my favorite intense jewel colors.

The snow looks so nice. Then again, the people who actually HAVE snow say it sucks...but it really is beautiful!

Ver nice pictures. I like the snow maybe because we haven't seem much of it this year...Whooeee that is some high cost housing!
