Weather isn’t news.

by Brenda on January 6, 2010

Unless it’s a hurricane. Or unless you’re in Britain, where it’s apparently more important than anything going on in, say, the government, or the finance sector.

The top story today is: It’s snowing. (Inside sources report that this is largely due to something called Winter.) Not that I’m complaining, mind. Hearing about falling snow instead of falling bombs makes for a nice change.

I don’t really have a lot to report today. I mostly wanted to bump Pam’s pumpkins down the page, as I’m kind of tired of looking at them, and I figured you probably were too. Instead of pumpkins I thought I’d share this morning’s monochrome view across my valley.


I’m going to be joining Ruby on that sofa shortly, to work through the “technical issues” in the Driving Miss Daisy pattern. All in all, a pretty sweet way to spend a morning. Not bad at all.

Gorgeous view Brenda!

Most wonderful………………………………….oh to sit on that sofa and knit an afternoon away………………..

I love the new windows. And I like the new center opening. Well done my dear, well done!

Yes, but you are from Portland! Have you forgotten how an entire city can be shut-down by one or two inches of the beautiful white stuff? (For what it’s worth, weather is still news here in p-town. Hours of extended coverage due to a “surprise” snow event a week ago.)

That is a great view even if it’s not colorful. Sometimes shades of grey can be just as wonderful.

Oh, such a lovely view. I hope the knitting went well, and I just wanted to say thank you for producing such a great podcast. I just enjoy listening so very much.

Wow Brenda, that is a fantastic view! I can’t complain about our views here on the coast of Maine, but your valley and your new windows are gorgeous. I hope you enjoyed the day!

8 Ricky January 7, 2010 at 5:15 pm

What a view! Your new doors show it beautifully.

9 Katherine January 7, 2010 at 10:35 pm

What a delightful view!

I am also always mystified how 3 inches of snow can shut St. Louis down, but I’m always grateful for the break.

Thanks for a wonderful podcast as always.

Beautiful view! You’re one lucky gal!

11 Karen S January 10, 2010 at 8:22 am

Oh my… I’m almost ready to kill (or at least give up a large chunk of my stash) for that view. It’s simply gorgeous!

Hi Brenda,
I found your podcast over the holidays and selfishly downloaded ALL of them and have been devouring them as quickly as the Christmas chocolates. I’ve started listening to episodes back in the beginning and am looking forward to and at the same time dreading catching up. Once I catch up I won’t be able to listen to 3 episodes in one day! Keep ’em coming!

13 Tina January 10, 2010 at 10:54 pm

What a view! Absolutely gorgeous and thank you for sharing.

I recently found your podcast and am enjoying listening to an American living somewhere other than the USA. I live in Beijing China and have lived here 8 years. Beijing also falls apart when it snows around 2″ which only happens once or twice a season on average. It has snowed three times so far this year, so it has been a mess. I hail from MN so it is hard to believe they can’t handle the snow, but then again they “shovel” the main streets with brooms, so……..

I wondered how an American ended up in Wales and why you stay. I can see now why; what a beautiful view! Just recently discovered your podcast and I love it. I really like the music breaks and the music you choose. I’m working my way through them all! Great podcast! Thanks so much!

17 Kathy January 14, 2010 at 12:03 am

Absolutely beautiful view that demands a cup of tea, knitting, and hours of quiet.

18 Amanda January 14, 2010 at 3:50 pm

I just set your picture as my desktop background at work. Gorgeous! And it sort of makes me feel like I have a window in my office. 🙂

19 Natalie January 15, 2010 at 8:05 pm

Wow…this is just an absolutely beautiful view! Thank you for sharing.

Heck, that could be the view down my valley, if it wasn’t for some big trees blocking part of the view. I’m a Canoock living in Pembrokeshire, and fellow Teaching Sells student (where I came across your post in the archives). Hi, nice to meet another one on my door step, and with a few parallels. And that is one hell of a beautiful photo and view.

If I had that window with a lovely view, I would place the couch facing it, snuggle up with a blanket, dog and cat, and NEVER leave!
Get well soon.
