First Snow

First Snow

It caught me by surprise—this first snow.

And I had not covered the grill and stored it for the winter.

But the first snow is always so beautiful—and means the arrival of real winter.

Here’s a picture from ”Coffee on the Porch,” a local business that publishes beautiful local pictures on Facebook. This one was taken at dawn from across the harbor. The lights are inside our beautiful library. And the town will slowly come awake now to find this first snow.

Here’s a picture taken by gifted photographer Judy Berk, also on Facebook, of her farm field covered by snow. I love the soft colors of the sky and snow-covered field. This picture heralds the peaceful quiet of a winter morning.

Before I wrapped and stored the grill, I cooked one last steak on it.

Delicious—and there are leftovers for another salad lunch.

The placemat is made from the non-printed selvages of quilting fabrics. I just knit them with a garter stitch when I get enough strips to make more rows. It’s kind of an ongoing project.

I love these funky placemats. They wash well and are super sturdy. Whatever bright colored napkin I choose seems to resonate with them.

I have enough placemats now, so maybe I’ll try knitting some sort of small rug for the kitchen or a doorway or, even, a bathroom…
