I braved the "frigid" temps today for my 3 mile walk and discovered that the winds last night that brought the current cold front here blew down a big tree near the jogging path. It's no wonder it blew down--you might be able to see from the photo that it's almost hollow.
There are a lot of pecan trees around the path and also in the field in the middle. I saw several people out picking up pecans that the wind had blown down. One woman had 2 Walmart bags full!
It was a dreary, drizzly weekend here, perfect for hanging around the house watching football, stitching, and reading. I worked a bit on a freebie of Barbara Ana's called Silent Night:
I won a contest from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe for some of her beautiful floss. What a treat! As you can see from my other recent blog entries, she's running a series of contests for the 25 Days of Christmas. She has lots of beautiful designs, floss, fabric, and other hand dyed goodies.
Yesterday afternoon, I intended to read about an hour and then do other things but I got so into the book (Gone Girl) that I read all afternoon and most of the evening. I should be able to finish it soon. Wow! I'd like to see the movie but wanted to read the book first.
