Speaking of the house, here are some pics of said new home:
I know, that's not many, but we seem to have taken loads of the house under construction, but not so many since it was completed and we moved in. We do have a lake* behind our home and we've seen some lovely birds all over the place, including the one pictured below. Egret? Heron? Crane? I dunno, do you?

We have beautiful sunsets like that nearly every night right out our back door.
Anyway, as I said, we are stuck up inside the house, which on any other day would be a great thing. Unfortunately, even though the sleet and freezing rain and snow have stopped, it has not really warmed up much at all. Last I checked, it was still below freezing which rules out a walk around the lake or sitting on the back deck. The Husband did make a fire in the fireplace (as he did yesterday) and that is a definite plus, but I find myself bored. I have a project I'm working on that I have made good progress on these last two days and another that I haven't started but will need a lot of attention when I begin. I continue to ignore my daughter's Christmas sweater that's a disaster. Also see above statement about needing more sweaters for me. I certainly have things to work on. Still the boredom. I think I'm feeling the "I-need-to-cast-on-something-new-but-not-something-I-should-cast-on" itch. After all, I normally have at least three projects going at once. Trouble is, I just can't seem to commit to choosing something.
I have plenty of yarn left in my stash, I've been all over Ravelry and have literally hundreds of things in my library/favorites/queue, but all I can seem to do today is add more things to that list. Nothing is inspiring me. Perhaps my brain is frozen.

Wow, this was kind of a rambling, go-nowhere kind of post. My apologies. It is never a good thing when I am bored. I hope your Wednesday is fabulous.
*For my friends in the north, our "lake" is actually a pond. But it's a pretty pond.
