What a morning...
I got busy this morning and built a hot fire in the wood stove to warm up the house. Then, I shoveled snow so I could get out of my doors. A sizable drift blocked getting the truck out of the garage, so I worked on that drift until I was pretty sure I could get through.
Side note: I saw the prairie dog again, and he's a busy little fellow. In answer to kathy b's question, I don't really now if they are destructive or not. Usually, when I see them, they are a way from civilization where they have their own little prairie dog towns. I am wondering how in the world he got out here... probably hitched a ride, hiding in something being hauled out here.
I still haven't picked up the knitting needles, and I agree with those of you who have commented that it's sometime good to take a break. I ordered some baby-soft yarn to make a baby blanket for an expectant mother who is also one of my piano students. The package arrived!! The colors I could choose from were limited, but I think these will work just fine. The yarn is so soft, and I'm looking forward to starting this project.
