How many variations on a theme?? How many times can you change things up to make them different, yet the same??
Ah, the Compudobby.
I figured out what was wrong with it, and I'm embarrassed to tell you.
I got up and looked under the loom. There were dust bunnies under there that were HUGE. When I cleared them out, the loom worked fine. Apparently, they interfered with action of the the lams and the chains. Hmm.
Every time I change drafts on Weave Point, I say, "oh this is my fave."
Until the next one.
I said goodbye to Miss Puss. It was a very hard decision. I've been giving her insulin twice a day for two years.
On one hand, I miss her, on the other, there's a sense of relief.
I feel bad about that, but it's the truth.
Sydney and Jinksie are a little off balance. They are so used to being bullied by her.
It's quiet here, but Naya the new dog, should be arriving tomorrow.
They the dynamics will change, again.
After tonight, when the wind chill may possibly be as low as -50 degrees, it should be warming up to the 20's in the daytime, and not below zero at night.
That sounds lovely.
I have been thinking though, about how this cold and nasty winter will feel in 5 years, or 10. When I tried to get DH to talk about this, he said, "I go day by day."
I knew that.
I'm not counting the days of January, I'm counting towels. By the end of the month, I figure to have a sizable stash of them to head into summer shows.
That's the only way I can slog through this cold.
The pellet stove keeps it comfortable in the evenings. That's where I park myself with a book.
If the sun shines today, I'm going to sit in the hot tub and close my eyes. I can pretend, can't I?
Today I go fetch my Bernina from the shop.
It was an expensive item, but not having it makes me realize how much I love it.
It's good to treat yourself, ya know?
It's especially good to have things to work with, that make your life easier.
That's my theory.
Had company yesterday.
This little guy and his sister make winter go away.
When you have a grandchild, you think you can't love any other child as much as this one, then another comes along, and you do.
Your heart just gets bigger.
And I will leave you with a bruschetta pizza from the Talk of the Town, Glens Falls, NY.
Because it's the BEST PIZZA PERIOD.
If you ever get the chance...........you'll agree!
