Gotta love the weekend!!! It was so nice to wake up today and not have to go anywhere. I still got up very early, but I'm a morning person, so sleeping in is not my thing. I enjoy getting up and knitting; baking cookies; etc... So this morning I finished knitting K's Lucy bag. I made the strap 100 rows longer than mine. It is HUGE! I can't wait to felt it. I haven't had much luck felting in my machine here at home, but I may give it another try later today.
I also did a little spinning this morning. I'm starting to understand the 'drafting' a little more.. but have a long way to go in understanding tension; drive ratios etc... I'm hoping to head down to the spinning guild later today and get some more help.
I had a narrow escape this morning when I opened the freezer and realized I had forgot a pop can in there last night! Oops. (I like my pop with just a little ice on top... but it can be hazardous to the cleaniness of ones' freezer when you forget...) This one expanded, but did not burst! Phew!! I would love to be able to tell you that this is the first time this has happened to me. But that would not be true. It has happened more times than I care to admit!!
I made some peanut butter cookies this morning to send down to A at school. (R & M will be taking them to him tomorrow). This is one of my favorite cookie recipes. I add kisses to some, but not to all. My boys like them without the chocolate, but Steve loves the added kiss. This is kind of a combination of a few recipes.
Well, we have gotten our fair share of snow this winter!!! These are the bushes in the front of our house. Yes, it is beautiful in it's own way, but I still really don't like the cold. And it sounds like more bitter cold weather is heading our way today with wind chills approaching minus 30. That's just not right.
Sumo really loves to be out in the snow, but really didn't care to have to sit on the freezing cold snow covered cement. Just thought I'd show you the sidewalk heading up to our front door. Well, the cold weather is good for curling up and doing some more knitting. Have a great weekend!!
Until Next Time....
