They are predicting snow in Portland, Oregon - down to 200 feet. We're at about 750 feet above sea level. So... we'll see. We had a fun time at our son's house on Sunday. Our DIL, Kristi, roasted a 22 lb. turkey and had stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy, cranberry sauce, green beans with bacon, mashed sweet potatoes with a marshmallow & popcorn topping, homemade rolls and even pumpkin pie! She's a great cook! The boys really enjoy our visits and played with us for hours. Yesterday we met my 3 siblings and their spouses for a family visit - we're all going to Washington DC together in June, so we have lots to talk about. Today I went swimming. When I came home I snapped this photo of my Daphne Odora.. I kind of feel like that.. all tightly furled, hoping for Spring and warmth. :-)
I looked over at Dayle yesterday and saw the dog with his 4 paws in the air while his "dad" was petting him. I had to get a shot of that. And see the cat? She's napping next to the pellet stove, keeping warm. All of us are just trying to stay warm, here. :-)Below is a yarn winder, called a "swift", that I found in my mother's things. Several of the "sticks" were loose so I did some repair work on it and after I was done -- I realized I am missing 3 sticks. Now I wonder, where do you get spare yarn winder sticks?
My cat, Lucy. She loves me. I love her. Dayle tolerates her. She likes him to pet her occasionally but NEVER sits on his lap and cuddles with him. She is *always* coming up on my lap to sit next to my laptop computer to cuddle and be petted. She is a Tortoise Point Himalayan and she has a very unique look. Dayle thinks she looks "mean". I think she's pretty. What do you think? :-)
I just had to show you my biggest and thickest Snowdrop patch. We have them all over the farm.. here and there.. but this is by our front porch and this is the thickest they've ever been EVER. Gorgeous!
Tomorrow is my cedar bark basket class at the Damascus Fiber Arts School. I certainly hope it doesn't get snowed out. That would be a bummer. I will take photos! Are you like me.. do you want Spring to come? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
