At last count there were 27 pairs in the bag for next winter.
The past few days I have been making a pair of mittens and then knitting a few rows on my "Zilver" shawl. It's a free pattern on Ravelry and very easy if you're thinking of making a shawl. I desperately needed to make something other than mittens for a change. It's fun and mindless. I'm using Caron Simply Soft yarn in Country Blue.
Yes, these are fake flowers but I still like them. My little birds are out and waiting for spring!
We sent our Grandson Caleb, money for Christmas and for his birthday and he's been saving it up. This weekend he finally had enough to buy the Millineum Falcon Lego set. Jamie said it took them 6 hours to put it together. Isn't he the cutest thing?
Our weather has been warm and sunny/rainy/sunny. But no snow here in the Valley. Lots in the mountains. This is just the way I like it. We are getting the mountain snow that will help with the fire season this coming summer, but we don't have to deal with it here. Temperatures in the 40's and 50's! I'll take it. Unusual for February to say the least.
Dennis went back to work a short day yesterday. Only 7 1/2 hours and he's supposed to do the same today. He usually works 11-12 hour days with no breaks for lunch or coffee. I drove him yesterday to make sure he came home early. He promised me he will do the same today. It's amazing the difference a week has made. The doctor told us another day or two and he may not have survived. As soon as he came out of surgery he felt great. It was like night and day. He is very tired still, but I think that's from undergoing general anesthesia twice in three days. They tell him that can take weeks to get out of your system. I'm so happy that he seems so much better.
I am also doing better but having a difficult time adjusting to my medicines. Thank you for all of your sweet thoughts and prayers.
I'm so thankful for the sunshine. It does seem to help. I hope you are all having a wonderful week.
"I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. I and the Father are one." John 10:28-30

Blessings always my sweet friends,
