Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

Still winter!


The worst of the most recent storm missed us. We got about 6-8″ of ice/sleet/snow, but were very fortunate that most of it came down already frozen. Farther south, they weren’t as lucky—according to news reports, some parts of the Missouri Bootheel and Kentucky are experiencing 100% outages, and it may be several days before power is restored.


It’s been good weather to stay in and cook, knit and read—yeah, and eat too 😉 There’s been knitting happening, but nothing looks much different from the last time.

Himself left the container of cookies (snickerdoodles) on the sofa the other day, and Amber found it most interesting, but wasn’t able to get into it.

I know there's something good in there ...

I also made a pan of lasagna, a big pan, and I usually share some of it, but unless our driveway (it’s on a north slope, so the sun doesn’t shine on it much) gets better pretty quickly, I may just have to put part of it in the freezer!

  1. Mmmm….lasagna!!!! Stay warm and safe.

  2. OOOOH, yummies! Amber is giving it her best shot, but maybe she might want to get off the top. North sloping drive? Probably not today. Maybe by Saturday. Stay warm and safe. Oh, and knit on!

  3. I’m glad to hear you are not without power. Being snowed or iced in isn’t so bad when you can do the things you love doing. The scarf is very pretty. I like the nups.
