    The Arrival of Winter

    What's happening outside:

    What's happening inside:

    Rusty is getting old and I know he has arthritic hips, so his preferred activity these days is sleeping on his pouf in front of a roaring fire. Unfortunately, if Lila sleeps too much during the day, she has too much energy at night. I've said to the husband that we almost need another puppy or young dog for her to play with. She tries to entice Rusty to come out and run around (usually by taking a flying leap and landing on his head), but he's not interested. One option is to get him a heated pet bed that we could put on the porch. Unfortunately, Lila has chewed every bed we've put on the porch into little tiny shreds. If she's going to do that again, we'd prefer it not be with one hooked up to household current. 

    I was home yesterday with some hideous stomach bug. It started Monday afternoon and landed me squarely on the couch, wrapped up in about three blankets, sipping ginger ale. I felt a bit better yesterday. I don't know what it is, but this year the germs seem especially virulent. A few weeks ago we had half a dozen kids at our elementary school out with pneumonia. Pneumonia! Maybe it's because we've had a string of fairly mild winters. Who knows?

    I felt sick enough that I didn't even want to knit (that means I was pretty sick). I'm hoping to get DD#1's afghan finished soon. I'm more than halfway—in fact, it's reached the point where it isn't exactly portable anymore. I'm thinking maybe I'll start a pair of socks . . .

    Did you say socks?! I'm working on a tetris scarf for a class, a felted stain glass bag that
    was to be a class that only one signed up for and just finished several cowls and hats, samples for th e shop and probably gifts later.

    Our cat Sophie is still a kitten (1 1/2 years old). She still has tons of energy and drives us and the other cats a little nuts. She plays with Sabrina who is probably around 3 but she tires out. Another puppy would be great for Lila. Although they tend to scheme and come up with even worse puppy-behavior if you're not careful...

    Did DD#2 wear her new boots since it snowed? I requested a photo of these "fabulous" boots so that I could admire them as well.

    Looking at the first picture makes me hope your DH has a log splitter. :-)

    Socks. Yes, I might do socks. Really. Story at 11.

    The little fashionista has indeed worn her new boots. I will see if I can get a picture. It's pretty dark when she leaves for school.

    Marilyn, the husband will split all of that by hand, probably in one afternoon. He's a machine when he gets going.

    Hope you're feeling better.

    I agree with you Janet about supporting your LYS and I would if I had one. My only local source for yarn is the nearest Wal-Mart ( a 40 minute drive). If I did have a local yarn store I certainly wouldn't carry someone else's merchandise into the store and ask for advice. It just wouldn't feel right. I buy my yarn from Knit-Picks.
