Pinecone Treadlers Pot Luck

 Our roads have been terrible for the past week.  It has been too cold for the salt to work and as a result driving has been a nightmare.

Trudy donated some of her  fleece, rovings and wool and the money she raised went to our local food bank.  Our Christmas ornament exchange was fun and I took home a beautiful crochet Christmas tree

It was a small group today. We had good conversation, lots of good food and lots of laughs with Karen's games.

Snow Snow Snow

The driveway has been plowed three days in a row and it looks like it will need to be done in the morning.  The hives look like four giant muffins with the big mound of snow on top.  The chickens are trying to stay warm in the coop not wanting to venture out in the snow.  I guess that's where that old saying comes from " all cooped up". To bed early tonight so I'll be rested for shovelling in the morning.

I did end up going to our pot-luck and having a nice time.  Any one who isn't in to bees would be bored stiff as the topic is always bees,bees,bees. Hows your bees?  Did you get much honey?  Etc.

I took a pan of date squares that I had bought from Fine Thymes in town.  No need to stress about my cooking or baking.  And if I do make a dish and can't make it to the function I can't sit at home and eat it myself.

The weather was fine going and returning to town.  However when my daughter,granddaughter, and myself came out of the movies  ( we saw Disney's Frozen)  the storm had started.  The movie was really good, in fact it was an awesome day.

Waiting at a cute little coffee shop to see if the weather will hold out for our drive north of Bracebridge.  They are calling for snow and wind today.  I will be going with a fellow women beekeeper

Rug Hooker's Christmas Lunch

We  hooked a coasters and gave a mug as a gift.  So cute!  I forgot the name of the restaurant in Gravenhurst.  I think it was the Farmers Plate.  Very nice get together with some very special women .

Xmas Door Swag

Now that we have a bit of snow it seems more like Christmas.

I took a workshop at The Flying Star Antique Shop and we all made swags.  So much fun!
