Well....

Damn it's been cold outside. I know, I know, I choose to live here. But it is still damn cold out! LOL That did not stop Gwyn and I from venturing over to our new neighbors :)  Her little friend moved from across town (LOL 3 1/2 blocks) away, to right across the intersection. Which.. is great... and not so great... It is a somewhat busy gravel road which is the good part, and the bad, nobody slows down for town.. But we will see.. will be awhile before these little gals will be ready to go across on their own.. Maybe by then we will be out on the farm...And I won't have a great neighbor for Gwyn to go play with... :(  Might just mean the occasional trip into town for Gwyn and I's sanity! LOL  Anyways, we were over for a visit one day and Gwyn had a great play with her friend. So, I had rounded up some hand me downs (because these girls have different shapes and what doesn't fit one, fits the other) and we headed over for a quick drop off. Ended up being a wee little play too! And Gwyn loved it!!!  I do have to admit, I really enjoy visiting with the mommy too! Nice to talk mom to mom and not have to worry about one thinking the other is crazy... made me feel a little more sane as a mommy and with all the cabin fever running about too!  And those of you sitting in warmer temps.. yes.. we still get cabin fever... when it's cold you don't want to go anywhere, when it warms up YOU CAN'T go anywhere as it's freakin' snowing and blowing!!!

I have been knitting.. I am working on a pair of socks.  When I finish them.. hopefully soon... I will start a pair for Gwyn.. then something for my sister's bday, then mom's, then mother's day, then father's day, then.. then.. then.. then.. Christmas again!!! Flocked ducks anyways!! LOL I know, I don't have to.. but I love, love knitting, and it relaxes me.. I think. LOL I am trying out my new Addi Turbo needles and I love love them... They are fabulous. I am also using a Yarn Drum. Which you put your yarn into instead of a basket and you can take it with you and  it zippers shut and all that good stuff.  I love it because Gwyn can't get in and run off with a ball of yarn or get into my needles. The worst she does is pull the yarn.. but I can so live with that because she only does it once in awhile. I am knitting from one of the books I got for Christmas which is fantastic! Love the pattern.. but I hate when I am more concerned about what the sock will look like than the publishers... I had to go back and do some.. figuring on how to set up the pattern rows for the foot.. so that they were not all frocked up. Well.. I did a wee little frock up.. but it passes so I kept going. They are going to be beautiful socks!! At least I think so...

Anyhow, off to work on those socks...

We totally understand cabin fever around here. Marla asks daily if we can go to the park. Ha! 20 inches of snow last month, we can't even find the park.
