OMG ipernity is BACK! YAY!!! Oh, and...Frosty Wood and Nails! (+2 insets)

OMG ipernity is BACK! YAY!!! Oh, and...Frosty Wood and Nails! (+2 insets)
(+2 insets) (view large for super details!)

So Happy ipernity is Back!
Wow, that was a LONG TIME to be away from ipernity...it will be interesting to learn all of the details behind the massive shutdown. I hope all of you have been ok! Since I need to run out for a while, I'm going to post the text I had prepared for this picture and insets! YAY!!! WE'RE BACK!!!

Freezing is a Big NOPE For Morning Walks!
Holy cow, it's most definitely not warm outside! 26F/-3.3C is just WAY TOO COLD for me! I've drawn the line--any temperature below 30F/-1.1C and I'm not going outside. Seriously, it just takes a few minutes of exposure, even bundled up, and I'm a total popsicle! Then it takes ages to warm up again. Yes, I could dress in snow gear but then I feel like a bloated tick and instead of being able to march happily up and down the driveway, I'm shuffling along without freedom of movement. It's not so much my legs as my arms and hands which get bound up, and I cannot exercise properly when so bundled up. I guess on days like this, I'll need to hop on our orbital trainer for exercise unless I go out later if it warms up to a comfortable temperature. LOL, you may think I'm a big baby about the cold, but if you are thin and/or predisposed to getting cold extremities--which includes a huge portion of the female population--you'll know exactly how I feel!

My Electric Blanket is Wonderful!
By the way, you might remember that I ordered a heated blanket a few weeks back. What an absolute slice of heaven! I've never had one before and it's such a treat! My parents had a couple when I was growing up but the blankets were musty, worn out fleece and the wires inside were stiff. I remember them either not working or getting too hot and my parents threw them out at some point because they were a fire hazard. Mine is velvety soft, silvery grey and has wires inside which aren't very noticeable at all. Reviews mentioned it getting too hot for some--the control box too--so I unplug it after use, but I haven't had any problems with it. It's so cuddly and perfect that I've only allowed Steve to pet it but I can't bear to share it with him! I'm mean! :D

Today's Pictures
I took these frosty pictures a while back and it's wonderful to have a perfect time to post them! The main picture shows frost on some nails and charred wood from a fire a few years back. My insets include two pictures: one shows frost on the edge of a piece of metal and the other is a frost-covered stem protruding from our ice-covered seasonal pond.

Take care of yourselves, everyone! It's cold, miserable, and it's a perfect opportunity to catch the flu or worse! Thank you all for the lovely comments, visits and favorites you've left for my pictures. My globe-trotting visits to your photo streams has been great fun and full of inspiration, beauty and amazing sights. Keep up the AWESOME! :)

Hi Janet.....................I've missed this place..!!

What a lovely trio of "detail" images to come back with..........the main image is fantastic. The wood is a super shape and it looks wonderful with the nails against the darker background. The covering of frost is just wonderful.

The detail and colours in both PiPs are exquisite..!!

Take care..........and stay safe!

Wonderful to see you and your photos again, Janet. I especially like the frost on the sheet metal; I wasn't sure what it was by looking at it. My latest photos are of frost, too. Best wishes.

Oh what fantastic pictures, Janet. I just love your frozen photos. The nail is just superb as is the frosty leaf sticking out of the water. I have been watching the weather news for your area on CNN and boy it does look as if it's going to be really cold. So please take care of yourself, especially when you do your daily walks etc. Although I don't feel the cold as much as some, once I start to feel chilly, it's very quick to turn into shivers. So I have my radiator on in my room and now the halogen fire is facing me!!!

I used to have an electric blanket but that was ages ago. I have lovely fleecey (brushed cotton) sheets and I've got one of my quilts on top and I'm as snug as a bug in a rug. Even though I don't have any central heating in this house and the rooms are very big, it's strange that it never seems to get icy cold, nor over heated. Something to do with the 2ft thick walls I think!!!!

I'm so thrilled that Ipernity is up and running again - it's been so quiet and lonely in a way. Still I've been very busy making Christmas presents. I'll do a blog later and show some of the final pieces.

Fabulous frosty fotos, Janet. Yes, isn't it so good to have ipernity back! I'd have to admit that I've been feeling quite lost without the interaction we have here. As a contrast to your temperatures, we've had 38C a few days ago and 29.7C at present. Stay safe.

You mentioned you'd like to know more of the reasons for the shutdown, Janet. I know F/B isn't everyone's favourite territory, but there's a group there "Amis d'ipernity" where official announcements are made. Here's the link to the current status: www.facebook.com/groups/1771501023114950/announcements
