Old Man Tommy

A mere one month after dear old Tommy turned 30, his eyesight went down the tubes! Poor old guy! So here are his new spectacles! Gooood Looking!

He was very astonished to find out what we all really look like!

Last night I finished my first little skein. I know it looks a little like a ratty ball of twine, but the impressive part is that it is one continuous piece of string! Then I spun it into a 2 ply yarn! I like to call it varigated weight, in some spots its fingering weight aaannnd in other spots it's chunky! It's a surprise around every stitch! What shall I knit with this beautiful ball of yarn?

We used our second set of passes to Red Mountain yesterday, for a day of relaxing on the snow! The view from the chairlifts are amazing, I have never seen anything like it! I wanted to take the camera this time, but neither of us wanted to carry a back pack! And the weather is so amazing here, I was actually swatting a fly as I was tyeing my boots up! Crazy!

On Sunday, I spent most of the day in my gardens, this is the best winter yet! Don't you all want to move here? All my perennials are poking their little heads out already. We also saw some people out on a boat on the lake on Sunday!

This is going to be THE year of the garden, I just know it!

Great glasses - does Tom have to wear them all the time?

Looks like you are getting the idea about this spinning. I think the yarn looks good.

Playing the garden, huh? It is melting here so starting to see a little dirt.
