Comments: I love how these turned out. I wasn't sure about the color when I started, but I love it now. I found it in my stash while looking for another color. I don't remember what I intended to use it for at the time I bought it, so why not for this? 

I sewed on size 8 Japanese seed beads in metallic brown for the eyes. These will be a gift for my hair dresser.

I finished knitting the lime and teal baby jacket for Layette 6 today and started the hat while at Yarnies.

Had 3 turkeys in the front yard enjoying the Parkarosa Bird Buffet this morning. They would not let me take their picture with my camera. I did snap one with my phone but it was several feet from the window through the lower half where the screen is and it turned out lousy, so not sharing it here.

A lot of our snow has melted away because it's been above freezing the last few days and it rained yesterday. Most all the icicles have gone away. Our power has been stable too which has been very nice.

My daughter, Ruth, has gone to college. I miss her so much, and the cats definitely miss her. She's coming home this weekend though so that's okay. Our weekend plans are packing her belongings and moving them down to her new apartment via our pickup truck. Fun, fun.

Live long and prosper. \\//
