In And Out And In And Out And In And Out And In

January 23, 2013

When you have five cats and a dog and its nineteen degrees outside, that’s what happens all day.  At least Sweetums is getting some exercise.  Me?  I’m trying to hide.  I haven’t recovered from my ophthalmologist appointment this morning.  It took forever to get dressed.  There was the silk long johns and the heavy socks and wool clogs and the turtleneck and the wool sweater and the pants.  When it was time to go, there was the neck scarf and the coat and Angora Bohus hat and the Sanguhar gloves.  Oh, yeah.  Don’t forgot the knitting.  At this point, a nap would have been nice.  But I managed to make it out to van.  And, you know what?  It started right up.  I love my metal box, even if it is sixteen.  Maybe it’ll make it to twenty.  On days like this, I think about when I lived in California.  Then I remember all the heartache and how happy I am in Lower Slower Delaware.


I made apple cranberry walnut spice muffins with the last three apples.  The smelled so good.  And they tasted wonderful.  My son inhaled three and took a bag home with him. 


Suddenly, It Feels Like Winter

November 2, 2009

The damp, chilly air is getting to me and it’s dark by the time I start fixing supper.  Last week there were leaves on the trees.103109 006Now, there’s hardly any leaves left.  I can’t stand it.

I was going to blog every day this month, but I’ve all ready blown that.  I never even gave it a thought yesterday.  I can use the excuse that I was out most of the day, but I didn’t leave until almost 2PM and I was home by 830.  I’m still working on baby socks.  I’ve got three and a half pairs finished.  I also have another sock kit to make.
