Of trips and things
We traveled to California for the Thanksgiving weekend, 11 hours in the car each way. 800 miles is a long way inside a car (bonus points if you know where that lyric is from)...
It was the first time we have left all the animals, and I was nervous to see they were all OK when we arrived home (they were, thanks pet-sitter!). We arrived home to a long overdue sight, snow.
Snow on the mountains, and snow in our yard even (a little note from the sitter said 3 inches on Friday...).
At least when we drive I get to knit in the car. I finished up a pair of socks (those baby cable rib socks I'll blog them later) and knit a pair of baby legwarmers for Cordelia's new baby Anna.
And, the kitties were all fine too, although I think they slept too much and missed the outside time they get during the day a ton. Here's Lucy in her "Jungle Jaguar Kitteh" pose in the Navajo willow in the front yard. Wow, that tree went from green to brown leaves fast, here is a picture of her in the same tree taken on Nov. 16th compared with today's.
I hope the little baby leggings fit Anna, and that they warm her legs! I've never knit these before, so I guestimated a quickie pattern. I'll have to ask Cordelia later. I used Trekking for these, of course.
And, more kitty love. Clyde loves to hang out with me in the mornings as I do my outside animal chores. So bright eyed and bonkers, he'll pounce out on the hay bales from the middle of nowhere.
Ah, how is it that 5 days off of work makes me more tired than a normal weekend?
