Happy as a Clam

Outside, it's a grey -14 degrees and going to get colder so they tell us but I've found all kinds of things to keep me happy inside:

1. Novel:  The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson
2. Knitting Pattern:  Street Vest by Jolene Mosely
3. Knitting Yarn:  Monte Donegal:  A grey tweed with 40% merino and 40% alapaca
4. A Series to watch:  On Netlix - Land Girls (There are three seasons of it!)
5. My magic bag
6. Cup o' tea

Who cares about the weather when one is so well entertained inside!
