Snow, At Last

I stayed home this morning but Brad went on to the chiropractor and picked up the mail and lunch for the two of us. My herb and spice order from Simply Organic arrived. Does this look like $60 worth of herbs and spices to you? Prices are becoming ridiculous but at least these are goodContinue reading “Snow, At Last”

Winter Storm

It’s 42° and raining this morning. The temps will remain in the 40’s most of the day and begin to drop into the mid 30’s later this afternoon, staying above freezing as the snow moves in. Our weather guy says not to let the above freezing temps lull us and to stay home if possibleContinue reading “Winter Storm”

Soup, At Last

I got the Black Bean Soup started and simmering about 3:30 yesterday afternoon and took it off the burner at 6 pm after enough of the broth had reduced. I froze half of it and put the other half in the fridge. We had a late lunch that was very filling and we only hadContinue reading “Soup, At Last”

One, More, Pair…

I’ve been working on the pair of lacy socks. I love the simple pattern and all, but it’s slow going and my wrists hurt after about an hour of knitting. I’ve added another inch to the cuff but needed a break and I really, really want to work on another pair of simple, stocking stitchContinue reading “One, More, Pair…”

3rd Day of Christmas

In looking for something else in my stash I spied two plastic bags with partial spinning projects. All total, that’s three more bobbins to finish. How fitting on the 3rd Day of Christmas. I think this is Polwarth fiber, can’t find the label or the vendor. Anyway, I have two finished bobbins, the third started,Continue reading “3rd Day of Christmas”

Monday Was Interesting

By the end of the day there were several interesting stories going around in the news: Samuel Bankman-Fried was arrested in The Bahamas at the request of the US Government; Sam Binton was fired from the Dept. of Energy for felony theft of luggage; Elon dropped his 5th set of Twitter Files, launched Twitter BlueContinue reading “Monday Was Interesting”

A Good Day For Cooking

It got up to 73° by 2:30 pm yesterday afternoon and I had the house open while Brad was gone to his appointment. He insisted that there was no need for me to go with him since he would be waiting for a bit until he was ready to leave. In the end it didn’tContinue reading “A Good Day For Cooking”

Another Project Almost Finished

I had hoped to have finished the cowl by this evening, but I took most of the day off from knitting for the sake of my joints. I remembered the bottle of ibuprofen and took a dose of it a little while ago and then picked back up and started the last section of theContinue reading “Another Project Almost Finished”

Grandma And Grandad Go To The Vet!

These are our daughter’s sweet girls. Hava on the left, Magen on the right. They are eight months old and doing well. Magen weighs seven pounds less than Hava but I think Hava has had a growth spurt and Magen will soon catch up to her. They don’t have to go back until next AugustContinue reading “Grandma And Grandad Go To The Vet!”
