Mostly about knitting and spinning cause that's what I do.
To much snow
Started snowing during the night Saturday and was still coming down heavy till 10 am Sunday, well over 18 inches , maybe even 20. Today 1:30ish Troy came with big John Deere tractor opened my driveway and then shoveled porch and steps, told him not to bother cleaning car off, figuring it will melt sooner or later.
Further up the valley they only got 8 inches or so and Tatla hardly anything.
I have a ham bone thawing and will make bean soup tomorrow, using cannelli beans. Will make enuff for several meals and lunches. Lots of celery, carrots and onions.
Finally got to go into town, left Tatla Lake after knitting bee on the 21st, first thing I did was get a haircut(3 inches whacked off), then up to Denise & Lens around 4:30. Thursday was the big run around, oil change and car wash, bank, Wally World, and a very thorough eye exam, by the time that was over was ready to quit, so back up the hill to D&L's. Friday morning got into the grocery store, bought every kind of lettuce that SaveOn sells along with a box of mixed organic salad greens, peppers, cucumbers, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage etc. Oranges, kiwi fruit, apples and a few bananas, 4 full bags of just produce. Home just after 3, unloaded perishables and called it enuff. John & Sahnte came on Saturday and brought everything else in.
Took Andrea's sock to work on and got 2 patterns after 25 rows ribbing done. Andrea was here for the KB and tried sock on, fits like it was made for her. One pix with all my row counters showing/
Its been snowing now since just before 7 am, sometimes quite hard, so far about 3 inches. After last years fire situation, will take all the moisture we can get.
Progress on socks for Andrea slower than I had hoped, arthritis in left hand ( use it for patterns ), slows me down. I try and so several rows every time I pick it up, next pattern will be #4. Have a pix but so far not working to add it. When I get it figured out will add it later.
Went to Tatla on Wednesday for KB and the good food box, all fresh produce even fruit this time, have especially enjoyed the oranges. Roma tomatoes, romaine, zucchini, carrots, potatoes, onions, peppers, garlic, cabbage, broccoli, oranges, apples, bananas prolly more that is already been eaten. I am wondering why I waited so long to start getting it.
Windy enuff that leaves are coming down as yellow snow. Everything started turning color about a month ago now far enuff along that they've started coming down. And with rain in forecast they will fall then even faster. Rain is most welcome especially after the fires this summer, some won't be completely out until snow flies (and some of the bigger ones not even then).
Have been working on Monstersocks, white pair I started and finished straight away, the pinky pair were started in May (hangs head in shame), other things I liked better got in the way. But am determined now to finish them and one other (not as old) project. Then and only then will I start something new. Hey its been a pretty tough summer.
I am really looking forward to upcoming Desert Mesa, sure to hear even more fire horror stories. After that will go down to Monroe, WA for Fiber Fusion then home for the winter. While in town before heading south will get snow tire on the car, mandatory after October 1st for …
