Coffee. Knitting. More coffee. I am currently working on a sock - toe down on two circular needles. I have yet to master the two-at-a-time, which I really should try. It's a struggle to start the second one after the first is finished. What usually happens is that I decide to knit something simple to break the monotony of the sock knitting and then get totally distracted and off on a tear of some sort.
Coffee of the season is Pumpkin Spice with a dash of half and half. Oh, yum! I love this little knitting bag - it's perfect for a small project. It was a thank you gift from my Icelandic Sheep friends for bunking them for the Big E Fiber show one year. It was a lovely and thoughtful gift.
My sister is due in for a two-day visit and I am so looking forward to it. I love it when my sisters visit. Heck, I love it when ANYBODY visits... :) Other than taking advantage of another set of hands for the Great Turkey Relocation Project, there is nothing on the agenda. This could be a good thing, or a bad thing, given recent events.
Bernie is perking up, but continues to be challenging in the meals department. And in the stuff the capsule down her gullet department. That dog can clamp those jaws like nothing I've ever seen. A crocodile has nothing on Bernice.
Scrappy is rather enjoying Bernice's convalescing, as he gets her 'rejects'. Terrible, tasteless things like organic chicken simmered in filtered water with a scoop of organic jasmine rice. Sigh.
