Ducks and Such
This weekend has been a lovely respite for me after a crappy week at work. Edgar's Acres is therapeutic and I need to make a point to get over here more often than once a month.
We had a window of opportunity yesterday so I mowed the lawn for the first time this year (which tells me winter is on it's way out), and did some clean up. We decided to barbeque since it was so nice out. David set up the grill and was getting ready to add the briquettes when he remembered the chimney for starting the grill was in Bellevue, and no we didn't have any lighter fluid. Well, thank goodness we drink Yuban ...
In the meantime, Susan M. and Diana continue to knit stockings for Operation Holiday Stockings. These two women are amazing.
Diana sent another 42 stockings. She has had a LOT of snow, and knitting helps to pass the time when your stuck in the house.
My charity knitting for 2011 (in addition to the OHS stockings I'll knit this summer) are doggie blankets. So far I've knit five, and am on number six. If anyone has yarn you want to pass on I'll take it. Any amount will work. I just need it to be washable and dryable. I've pretty much used up all of my "unwanted" yarn.
As a refresher, here's Louie showing off the blanket for a pound puppy.
Well, it's time to get lunch going so will sign off for now. Remember when you are saying your prayers to include everyone in Japan. Their lives will never be the same, and the daily struggle for them right now is so overwhelming.
