The weekend flew by and all the important and necessary tasks were accomplished. The camera batteries
wimped out needed charging so no photos today. The bills were paid, the laundry was cleaned and put away or re-packed into the ever-ready suitcase. The cats were groomed and loved and given special treats. Blue-kitty spent several hours last night snoozing in the hollow of my neck and left shoulder. Nice & cozy. I hope he does that when we have the really cold weather. *g*
I spent time in the garden both Saturday and Sunday --- tearing out the frosted tomato and pepper plants, putting away the tomato cages, and digging the carrots. The carrots were a cool and generally successful experiment but I don't think I'll plant them again next year. DH is not really fond of carrots. I'll probably make a carrot cake for my birthday then share the rest of the carrots with my Mom. You know, one of the best things about carrot cake is the cream cheese frosting! Yum! I also did a bit of trimming and cleaning in the herb garden. If anyone needs/wants any lamb's ear next year just let me know. Mine spawned numerous little babies that I'll be transplanting or thinning next Spring. I think lamb's ear is an appropriate plant for a knitter or spinner! Don't you think so, too?
Contest! Low work contest! Since my birthday is this week (on Thursday), I'm having a contest. Well, really, no major effort will be required on your part -- outside of a comment (or two). I am going to send out a yarny prize to two randomly-selected persons who comment anytime today through Sunday night at 9 PM Central time. Fun, right! Low stress? Of course! *VBG*
Yes, I'm on the road again. (Willie Nelson, anyone?) I'm going to see if I can strike a balance between blogs and knitting. No, I'm not taking any bets.
