Ice

This weekend past was the ice festival in Medina. So we decided Sunday afternoon to go up there with my parents to walk around.


I had every good intention of getting some sewing done on Sunday evening, but this was much more fun:



Really, really cool. And ......really, really cold! Mom should be putting a couple of really good shots of the kids up on her blog at some point.



Yesterday, I had off because the kids' babysitter needed a day off. And what did I do? Sort of cleaned the house, did laundry - but didn't fold it, and read a book. And that was about it.


Come to think of it, I think Midnight used the sewing room more than I did yesterday.....



I would have sewn last night, but "24" was on and I had to watch it. Tonight my FIL is coming to pick up some firewood that we don't want. It's punky (Todd's word, not mine) and we don't want to bring it in our house. As he has an outdoor woodburning furnace - he can use it.

Those scupltures are unreal. WOW!! I'm always amazing at what carvers can do whether with ice or huge chunks of snow. Great pictures.

I have never saw anything like that. That is neat. I bet it was freezing though.

The ice sculptures are amazing. I had to smile because, I have a friend Debbie that uses the word Punky. I've only heard her use it. It's one of those perfect words.

Ive just caught up with your blog after a few days. Alex is just the same on her sheets and I was thinking the same ting about going into a good second store we have here (its better than the op shop) and buying up some older but quality sheets. Also I love your doll. I made one quite similar but bigger than yours a couple of years ago. It was an Amish one and I think its now at the bottom of Georgias closet (must get it out!)
Love Cherry
