Snow Day II

Here we go again!

The pup is not too happy with this snowfall.

It's very heavy and wet, and she has velcro-fur that attracts ice balls. She did what she had to do, but not happily, and without wasting any time.

Unfortunately, it's not done yet! I'm in the upper right-hand corner, and this big blue thing is heading right for me. 2 - 4 more inches starting later this afternoon. I went out and shoveled, mostly out of boredom and cabin fever, but also so I would only be shoveling 4" tomorrow, and not 13. My neighbors had the same idea.

Well, it's a chance to knit, read, and make soup, anyway. I have abandoned everything to knit this:

Wait, Edgar's in the way....
Well, that's a little better. It's a baby square blanket. There's a story behind it, but I'll save that for another day.

Soup? I made potato-cauliflower-leek with lots of turmeric. And I got to use my immersion blender, which is always fun because I usually lift it too soon and have to wipe down everything afterward. You'd think I would learn.

Can you make out the front porch kitty in this photo? She's pretty cozy and comfy.

Till next time!


  1. stay warm and safe! It warms my heart to know that the front porch kitties are warm.

  2. I wouldn't be happy either if my private parts were low to the ground and bare to the weather. LOL! I am sure you are now trying to ignore that image. Stay warm and keep those animals warm!

  3. Brrrrr. Keep safe and warm.

    Am liking those blanket squares.

  4. Looks like it's very cold. Stay warm nice squares lovely colour

  5. I am so sick of Winter! We are supposed to get another 6-8 inches tonight. Grrrr

    Your squares are beautiful. I can't wait to see the finished blanket.


I would love to hear from you!
