So far, I’ve been knitting a sweater that has only gotten smaller. I started it and finished the body in November. I spent weeks trying to get the first sleeve to cooperate and then I finally frogged the whole thing.
Now I have restarted the Funky Grandpa sweater, confident that it will be done by June.
Don’t mock me.
We’ve had some C O L D days. Yes, it’s Winter but we’ve never had it so cold that our heating unit couldn’t keep up. It never got above 63 degrees, inside (57 in the bedroom). We learned to adapt.
The snow wasn’t without it’s beautiful parts.
This was beautiful until the town plowed our driveway in and I promptly got stuck on the “hump”, while trying to drive out. My car was halfway in the street for 40 minutes, as I tried to dig myself out…get into car and rock it back and forth…lather, rinse, repeat. A town worker drove by (lucky me) right before a friend of Tom’s came to help free me.
And when the temperature went from -5 degrees to the low 40’s along with rain, it was transformed again.
And it’s only the 15th…
But first, an announcement.
I’ll be replying to your comments, in the comments. Since I’m doing this on my iPad, it’s easier than emailing separately…unless I have a lot to say…in which case, disregard this announcement.
ON WITH THE MOVIE!
Because catching Wes on film is like herding…well…cats, I had to take a movie on my ipad of a Vine movie ON my phone, taken WITH my phone.
It’s all very technical (not) and complex (even less) but I couldn’t think of a better way (that involved more than 5 minutes of time).
Sundance Film Festival, here I come!
And to finish it off – a Wes Pretzel In A Box
To sum it up –
1 – I bought Wes a Kickeroo
2 – He had just as much fun with the box, since it smelled like catnip
3 – And then he collapsed in a stoned heap
Next week, you’ll have the popcorn, Junior Mints & Twizzlers nearby.
Just a quick (backwards) glance at December and bidding farewell to 2012.
