Old Man Winter - 2009
This was what we received from the blizzard that hit the midwest last week. We got rain and freezing rain (mostly just rain) until the end and then we got about 4 inches of snow. Much less than other area’s who received 2 or more feet. Snow on the ground and covering the branches in the trees is such a pretty and peaceful sight, until you have to go out side and deal with it, and besides that it’s cold, brrrrr. 😛
The “Boys” are doing well. They beat the Saints week-end before last, and their old arch rivals the Redskins, this last week-end. They will face another newer arch rival this week-end, the Eagles. If the Cowboys win they will win their division. Woohoo! They’ve had a decent year this year :). I hope they win, but even if they don’t they’ve had an exciting year.
I’m spinning more Llama for my son, I have one spool filled and am working on the 2nd spool. When it’s full I can ply and hopefully will have enough for 2 more skeins. Incase my grand daughter is reading, I am also knitting on your blanket, it’s cosy to sit on the couch and knit in the evening.
Thor, my awesome ferret, is finally finished sheding his summer coat and has a wonderfully soft and warm winter coat. He’s fluffy and beautiful, and I have much less ferret fur to vacum up :P.
My Church is having a New Year’s Eve party Thursday evening. I will be glad to usher out the old and ring in the new, it’s just been one of those kinds of years, so I’m definately ready for the new and hoping for a better New Year.
Wishing all a peaceful and wonderful New Year!
