Christmas will soon be here, the tree is trimmed, the presents are almost wrapped, cookies are baked, and snow is on the ground. We have had several days of snow with a total accumulation of 8 inches. It has been very dry stuff and just sweeps off the walkways. Today I think it has stopped so will shovel out a trail to the barn for the cat and I.
The cat found us the day our dog of thirteen years left us this past summer. We had seen her in the barn and garden a few times and she proved herself friendly but when Bear was gone she just took over the yard. My husband told me not of feed her but when she brought a mouse across the yard to show off he figured she could stay for a meal. She has pretty much taken over. The barn is her favorite place to sleep in the haystack and watch the sheep. I call her Kitty but because she has a crook at the end of her tail my daughter has called her Cricket. We'll see if I can remember to call her that at any given time.
The last pair of socks it on the needles. I am using up matching bits of sock yarn for this pair for a granddaughter in shades of turquoise with blues, pinks and purples. Must finish these soon. I have also found patterns for an 18" doll so more scraps of all my yarn can be used up.
The computer was down for almost a week but is better now. Something about the virus program interfering with the internet program. Hummm...
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. God Bless us, everyone.
