This is my Stinky this morning in the sun.
We haven’t seen her in this place for months (due to the bitter cold, snow and gray skies). She has spent the winter hiding in closets and snuggling on a tacky velour blanket I keep for her. She has made use of the pup’s squeezy toy as a pillow. If it were hers, she would avoid it like the plague. It hasn’t gotten warm, yet, because she keeps moving closer to the door.
We are going to be in the 50’s today. I’m beyond thrilled. Tomorrow (back to work day) will be 70. I don’t care. I’m just happy the ground is not white, slick and cold. My needs have gotten quite simple this year. I hope you all can enjoy above freezing temps soon (Cookie do NOT giggle), too.
Haven’t been knitting much. I baked a fabulous Bourbon Buttermilk cake for my brother’s birthday and it was worth it, but it took forever! The baking and the cleaning and the working have eaten up a bit of time, plus I haven’t had the love for the knitting this past week. That cannot continue, so maybe this evening I can sit and knit for a bit. I’m hoping to knit outside tomorrow after work. We’ll see how that plays out.
And, I am trying not to be whiny, but I abhor the spring forward of the clocks. In the morning, we were almost at daybreak and now, we are back to pitch darkness. There is an upside. After I acclimate myself to it (again), I will enjoy the longer days of light. It’s a just a bear getting used to it.
I will leave you with my soundtrack. The Lumineers with “Stubborn Love”. This is my absolute favorite video. This wee girl is beautiful.
Have a wonderful week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*
