And then it started snowing last night…
The girls were having quite a time with something on the other side of the fence,
I worried it might be a skunk, but see that little dark upside down V over the fence? There are two canoes there, one stacked on the other, under some spruces… so the snow is a little lighter, and it creates something of a shelter. Where a cat was hiding. It’s probably still there.
The State offices have a delayed opening, in, um, 3 minutes. Don’t think I’ll make it. All that shoveling (and a bit of roof raking) wore me out! And then there’s the whole matter of not having a snow-worthy car to drive to work at the state because ice from the state’s building crushed it and it’s off becoming the frankenmonster car. I’m thinking it might need some detailing afterwards, suture lines and maybe little bolts.
Kat sent me an email about getting your call on the air on car talk. I learned two things, Louie Cronin (the Barbarian) is the gatekeeper for what calls go through, and they tape the show on Wednesdays. (I called on Thursday, so there’s still a chance my story is interesting enough for them). Read all about it in this She’s the Car Talk Traffic Cop article.
My first single on the ladybug, 4 ounces of just wool… (Amy says its from the wool pool, has some of this and that in it)
I’m hoping to get lots of hints and advice at SPA… mostly about tensioning and keeping things even. I’m pleased enough with this, but I know there’s loads of room for improvement!
and then there were three
We had another jumper. But didn’t really know about it until we heard Gracie crunching on something and then hacking something up… DH keeps saying “she ate part of the family…” It was one of the “little” gold ones, I think the one I at one time called Stumpy because its dorsal fin was really short lengthwise. But, look, the Floater is swimming more normally! I thought it was hogwas (or fishwash), so I did some googling about the frozen pea thing, and kept running into it as a cure for goldfish swim bladder problems. Seems to have worked!
I was eyeing them up the night I was cooking the smelts…
