Freeze... Thaw, Freeze... Thaw

The weather outside is frightful, but the pattern of the weather is even more frightful when one considers the impact, long term anyway, of global warming. How can anyone deny that global warming is happening? In any case, it really shouldn't be about the effect, but about the cause, and it will behoove us as a planet to reduce carbon emissions, but can we really do that with China and India emerging as industrial nations with huge populations? Too many questions, so here are a couple of photos that for me demonstrate the freeze thaw cycle we seem to be going through lately.

Quilt Making

It's odd funny how priorities develop in one's life. I always thought that I had complete control over the sequence in which things, all things, get done in my life, assuming that control was the "organizing" factor. But I've begun to discover that the tasks (I'll call them tasks here, and yet feel that word is too harsh) order themselves in many ways, all I have to do is just find the right time or the "extra" time to accomplish them. It's all about time, isn't it?
So, anyway, here we go again, I'm running out of time to put this post up, I need to fetch Jen a cup of coffee as the 6 o'clock alarm just went off, and I need to shower and get ready for school.
Last weekend was spent doing quilts for the grandchildren (and grandchildren-soon-to-be), so without revealing the finished work and spoiling a surprise, I'll post some pictures here. I need to start taking more photos and getting back to this site, I really enjoy it!
Interestingly, this is my 100th post for this year, half as much as in the previous two years. That says a lot to me about "new things", lifelong learning, and losing interest...
