|Sheep on the main drag. It doesn't get any better than this!|
|Think they would miss just one? Me neither.|
|Fire Department showing off.|
|Men in |
|Gotta have a few hot rods.|
|The only thing that could have made this hat cooler would be if it was hand knit!|
|More hot rods.|
|Quite an impressive cow.|
|My Dad had one of these. Drove all the way from Florida to Tennessee in it...with my sister and me in the back. WAY before car seat laws! Good times - right Kel????|
|Must have lawnmowers in a parade!|
|Now this is something you don't see every day! I hope!|
|The man we are all waiting to see!|

We don't sit around quite as much as we did before either. Before spring came along we got bikes. Every evening we head out for a bike ride. My knees don't like it, but hopefully they will adjust soon. North Carolina roads are not quite as flat as Florida roads - go figure! We also started Weight Watchers. Those stinkin' kids have lost more weight than me! I'm still plugging along, hoping I'll catch up with them soon.
As soon as R downloads some new pictures, I'll try to update you a little with knitting. I've been reading more than knitting this year, but I've managed to finish a few projects. So if you stick around for a while, I'll try to do better at updating.

She's not always the lady you saw in the first picture. Sure, most of the time, but other times you just have to relax.
Sometimes you just have to cover your eyes and say, "I want to be alone."
Other times you just need to find your spot in the sun and soak it up.

RL surprised me by only working half a day - that was real treat! He brought me three yellow roses - my favorite - and a Snoopy card. We both love Snoopy, so it was perfect. R decided to make some cream biscuits. I had never had them before. They were pretty good.
I finally had a nice day to take pictures of the socks I knit in January. The yarn was really kind of funky. Same dye lot, bought at the same time, started from the same place (roughly), same size needles, same pattern - totally different striping pattern. What's up with that????? Oh well - I don't think I've ever cared if my socks matched perfectly, so no big deal.

This cold weather has made Ginger become fast friends with any warm body she can find. The other day we caught her cuddling up to L. She is normally on the couch, sitting on her fleece blanket with the heating pad set to low under her. For a cool kitty, she know how to stay warm.
The new recipes have been flying in and out of the kitchen. R decided she needs to try a new recipe every week. This particular week we had shortbread. The little dots are where she poked holes in it and put lemon curd and raspberry jam. I don't know about you, but that combination sounded pretty bad to me. I don't care for raspberries and I had never tried lemon curd. However, this was really, really good! I rule this recipe a keeper!
I hope everybody had a nice Chinese New Year. The kids made beef and broccoli on noodles and egg rolls. It was such a great dinner! L even cleaned up the kitchen! WOW! The kids wanted us to try eating with chopsticks. They are pros, so that wasn't even an issue with them. RL was too hungry and ate his dinner with a fork. Mom and I opted for beginners chopsticks. I call them chopsticks with training wheels! They are actually plastic and connected at the top so they are easier to maneuver. All was going well until Mom started laughing like crazy. I looked up and noticed that she had apparently squeezed a piece of broccoli a little too hard and it flew across the room. If I had been a couple of feet closer I would have taken a piece of broccoli to the forehead! It's a fork for her from now on!

We had to wait until she wasn't around - which isn't often - and look on the internet for this particular book. He couldn't remember the name, but could remember the blog. So we scanned the blog and found it. Then we ordered it and the rest is history. True to her word, she made bagels. And what wonderful bagels they were. She needs to make some more. The above were cranberry with just a smidge of orange zest. The below picture shows one of the everything bagels. Plus she made plain. I think she made a dozen in all.
Tomorrow is her birthday, so I guess I'll have to do the baking for her. No bagels, but cake!
