January in California
This is the view from my bedroom window. I look out every morning, loving the hills in the distance and the way the fog and mist rolls over them so softly. And yes, that's SNOW. Just below the snow, you can see a field of grapevines, complete with the tinge of mustard weed beginning to bloom yellow. And the daffodils have sprouted in the backyard already. Is it spring? winter? How handy, to have a bit of each right now.
I have been hunkered down inside, staying warm and getting a big work project done and catching up on home chores and preparing for C's 12th birthday tomorrow.
And I finished my 12 x 12 challenge quilt finally. Check out the 12x12 blog for the big reveal on February 1!
