Shhhh! Don't tell anyone, but this is the third day in a row that we've seen the sun! Tuesday was so beautiful coming home from volunteering that we had to stop and take a photo. The mountains were glorious! And even those few clouds have vanished now, so it's been very chilly at night. But, hey, it's been SUNNY here!
Prior to then we had enough rain to awaken our spring that we discovered a year ago. It dried up during the summer but the 11+ inches of December rain had it running vigorously until the temperatures dropped below freezing. Lately the raccoons have been playing in it at night and making quite a racket!
Remember this? It has continued to grow and now looks like this:
Sadly, when it's done blooming, the whole plant will slowly wither and die. However, there's a new shoot coming to replace it. This cycle has been going on now for a long time, ever since Mother's Day years ago!
Two birthdays right after Christmas have had me steadily knitting. This Honey Cowl (It's a fun knit!) has been delivered, and the end is in sight for the second project that is needed on Monday! I even found a Ninja emblem to put on it as a certain soon-to-be 4 year old is crazy about them and all other Super Heroes. Meanwhile, I want to wish all of you the best year yet. Happy, Happy New Year! (And check Patchwork Times to see what others are knitting.)
