According to the news, we have only had 10 white christmases here since 1891.
It would be fine with me if we didn't have another for a VERY long time.
Everyone here has a serious case of cabin fever, including the doggies.
But, there has been lots of knitting,
And, since it's Christmas after all, some un-wrapping of presents.
I like her with the jingles, we can tell where she is!

Now we've added another 6" or so of snow and added a freezing rain chaser.
The snow is about a foot deep and there's a thick, hard crust of ice on top. I've lived here pretty much all of my life and never seen snow this deep. That's why I like to live here, the weather is USUALLY pretty mild.
I haven't been out of the house in nearly a week (with the exception of a white knuckle trip to the grocery store) and just cancelled everything for tomorrow too.
This is supposed to hang around until Christmas day. :(
At least I've gotten in some good knitting
STR Obsidian medium wt - 2 skeins, but there's enough left for some nice wrist warmers for me.
Cleopatra - STR sock club (I'm a bit behind, but catching up fast)

We're stuck at home with about a foot of snow for our second day.
One is fun, two is BORING, three is going to be impossible.
Although it's beautiful, it kind of sucks.
The good news is there's a lot of christmas knitting happening.
The bad news is, not much else.
Good thing we have our "3 days, 3 ways" all figured out.
3 days of food, 3 days of water, 3 days of yarn.
At least I finished that 3 days of advanced pilates before we started
NORDIC BLAST 2008.
It's enough to turn you into a drinker, really.....

Check out my new mascot, Ida. Ida sheep was made by some nuns over at the priory. They needle felt and knit to raise funds and they make some really fun stuff.
She's been boxer tested and approved!

Or you find yourself some nice warm laundry.....
Either way, it's all good.
On the knitting front, I'm almost done with the Debbie Bliss sweater, it's been set aside for a while though in favor of christmas gift knitting. A couple of scarves for friends and some socks that are begging to be finished. I just keep finding more things I want to make, and Bea was no help today when she listed some yummy yarn on her destash, and it begged to come over to my house.
Like, just what I needed, more yarn.

Rumor has it, I passed with flying colors, although I won't have the official
results for a couple of weeks. I'll be very happy when I finally get that certificate in my hand.
The project next door continues. It's now 6 acres of dirt and bulldozers.
Hard to imagine there were ever woods there.
At least we'll get sewer.

Of course, the doggies love the beach, too! How could you not?
Unfortunately, not much news on the knitting front, some socks, a leafling half done. I don't think there's going to be too much knitting progress until after "THE BIG TEST" in July, then I'll have to start thinking about christmas and the like. YIKES!
We hope to meet with the new house contractor in June. The bulldozers still have not arrived, but they're expected any day.
I promise I'll try to update at least once per week. That was the original plan, right??
I admire those folks that can post daily and actually have something to say.......

See these nice woods..... They're currently our next door neighbor.
We recently found out they will be leaving us on May 1 to make room for 37 new houses. We've had such a quiet time living here for the past 20 years or so. Makes me kind of sad (in a lot of ways) to see it go.
The upside is, when the utilities are brought in, we can build our own new dream house. "Library" and all. I can hardly wait for that part.

Here's a couple more FO's....Paws to Remember and Yoga hoodie
I actually don't have ANYTHING OTN right now. What's wrong with me.
Starting some socks for the trip to portland, knitting on the train, you know. Looking for the next big project. There's always socks to do.
