PJs and Parkas

Pajamas and parkas were the attire of choice early Thursday morning. It was just before 6 am, barely daybreak, and 30 degrees outside. The freezing cold blew right through our clothes.

The dogs refused to participate in our predawn activities. C'mon Girls, let's go, Mattie, Mele, let's go outside, woohoo everybody, let's go, c'mon Girls, c'mon. The dogs didn't budge from their heated beds, I knew they heard me, I saw their ears twitch.

The Man and I were outside to watch a rocket launch. The launch was postponed from the weekend and then again on Wednesday due to unfavorable winds. Too bad we didn't check the news feed before we all traipsed outside the previous morning, it was 29°.

Luckily Thursday's launch went off perfectly.

Another great SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch from Vandenberg AFB.

Best of all, we didn't have long to wait.

February Making

I enjoy the process of knitting, spinning, cooking, and making. But when it comes to completing the projects - the finishing, the hemming, weaving in ends, not so much. I find it oh-so-tedious.

With our unseasonably warm and dry weather I've been spending time outside, completing projects, and getting stuff done.

Charity knitting tagged and ready to be mailed.

It's funny that it all seems so much better when you can be outdoors.
