I thought we had a lot of snow!
But then came more….
At least the temperatures here in our little valley are a bit milder today, but it’s still cold. Of course, scenes like the one above are pretty to look at — from indoors.
And if one must venture outside, I have a gift from Angie and my friends at BOAA (who held the huge book signing in November for Myrtle).
So mittens, in purple and snow-white — and a card with purple iris — are very fitting, wouldn’t you say?
A gift to warm the hands and heart…
… No matter how cold it gets outside. Thank you, Angie and BOAA.
Hope your new year is off to a good start. And if you live in the frozen north, stay warm — or bundle up when outdoors!

Cynthia, your hands will stay snug and cosy in these – a wonderful and thoughtful gift! Stay warm and safe!
Thanks, Annika. I’m planning to get your book and can hardly wait. I had a “Look Inside” and that first story is a keeper. Well done!
Wow!! Thank you so much for saying so, Cynthia and can’t wait to hear your comments on the whole book. The paperback is out very soon…just received the print proofs and working through it.
Great news! Keep on trucking, young lady!
A touch of purple after all those days of white and black I am sure refreshed your spirit.
It sure did, Bernadette! Happy new year to you and your loved ones.
I love to see snow photos, especially now that I’m back in the South. Love your mittens.
Thanks. I’ll send you some snow!
We were close to it when a cold front blew through last night and some areas got hail.
Lots of snow! Winter is here. Those purple mittens are smashing, and the card is just lovely.
I thought you’d like the purple mittens, Laurie. Sending great vibes as you write book 2. And do send me some too — I sure need them!
Yes, yes! Right back at you! And soon, I’ll be ordering Myrtle for a special little miss for a birthday present.
Enjoy your purple mitten day, Cynthia!
Thanks very much, Diane!
I love the purple mittens! We’re finally thawing out, but I know it’s only temporary…but I’ll take it! Love your photos!⛄️
Me too, Jill! Every bit of mild weather counts.
Always love the purple! It makes the world a better place.
Love the purple mittens, Cynthia! Such a lovely gift. After yesterday’s snowfall, we have a lot of snow here (Petawawa, ON) as well. Pretty sight. 🙂
Glad you like the mittens, Natalie. I’m thinking Petawawa is probably colder than the GTA, right? Stay warm!
The snow looks wonderful. I miss snow. Enjoy those wonderful mittens and the snow for me Cynthia! 🙂
It is wonderful – except when the weather is very cold. I’ll think of you when I go for a walk!
Thanks! Enjoy. 🙂
Oh, your mittens are just beautiful!!! What a special gift! 🙂
Thank you! I love them.
You’re right. It is a magical sight.
Burrr! I hate snow — but I love the mittens. 😀 Stay warm, Cynthia.
I shall! I love to LOOK at the snow – from a safe perch….
I love looking at the snow too…from inside. After shoveling almost 6 ft of it, I moved to the area of the country that gets mostly rain. I don’t have to shovel it. Mittens are beautiful. Card of Iris’s too. Stay snug.
Wow, that looks like feet of snow instead of inches! You need those mittens. Stay warm.
I will, I will. How is it there? I know the late night/early mornings can get quite cold there, but nothing like ours, right?
Well,yes, we had the lowest temp I can recall last week. 38 degrees F, currently it is in the mid 70s. Average low 40. I couldn’t do Canada!
Wow that is a lot of snow! Beautiful mittens too
Isn’t the snow remarkable? Hope you’re doing well, Karina, and a happy new year to you.
And you too Cynthia:-)
And to think we both came from hot, sticky, tropical climates.
I wrote a short blog about how, in the north, this is a wondrous time of year to practice our art. Hope you enjoy it, Cynthia.
That is really beautiful, Lesley. I will try to take your advice! Happy new year.
We didn’t have a lot – maybe 3 – 4″, which was a blessing, but not as long as I’ve lived out this way do I recall waking to temps of minus 4 degrees!! All I kept thinking was `can furnaces really keep running like this?’ I guess so, because here I am to tell the tale. Lovely mittens!!
Thank you, Jeanne. And keep warm! Maybe that’s why so many people hold on to their woodstoves, even in these days of other kinds of heating.
What a lot of snow! Your mittens are perfect Myrtle Mittens! Stay warm and cosy!
Lovely mittens and nice snow pictures! It’s warming here, thank goodness!
Thank you, Lisa. Those mittens make me smile.
Enjoy the snowy scenes but take care!
Thank you. I will! Cannot afford another fall!
It is so beautiful and I can handle cold but frigid after many days starts to wear me down. Thankful for the little break we are having here until this weekend and we are back into single digits. What a thoughtful gift you received. Stay warm!
Back into single digits! I’ve heard that forecast too. So I decided to be very thankful for sunshine and “milder cold” temperatures today. Happy new year to you and the family, Tina! You’re a gem.
How thoughtful – they’ll keep you snug!
Yes, they will!
Wow!!! That’s a lot of snow!
Those are gorgeous mittens, and a lovely snowfall!
Thank you, Andrea.
Happy new year!
Happy New Year to you Cynthia!
Now you guys really get snow! You will stay warm in those mittens! Stay safe – the snow is beautiful on the bench.
Gosh, Jo Nell. Isn’t it something?
Sending you warm, colorful wishes to match your lovely mittens, Cynthia. < 3 After a brief few days above freezing here, the temperatures are plunging again. (Some local newscasters blame Canada for our cold weather. 🙂 )
The snow is beautiful, Cynthia, but I also love those gloves and purple irises!
The east coast and Canada had more than its share of snow and cold temperatures. We were spared the polar vortex this year, and it was a relatively warm finish to December and start to January in my region.
