We knew we’re going to see some and it looks like more could be coming our way. We have moisture in the forecast for the nine of the next 10 days…four of which all sources indicate snow…maybe three…maybe five. In any event, it’s going to be a wet one. Brenda humored me and had a load and a half of food delivered this weekend and Costco will drop a shipment on Tuesday. We feel comfortable with the “Winter Storm Watch for the Motherlode” that the National Weather Service announced for Tuesday/Wednesday…we live in the Motherlode.
The glaze tests from last week finally paid off…took a bit of fudgy-wudgy and had to do some work-arounds but we got a result that we really like. The colorway we came up with really shows off the yarn from Mountain Colors…and that is the point isn’t it? The STITCHES at Home event is coming up in a bit over a week and we will have the new kit making its debut at that virtual show. We’re stoked about this combination.
Madison, the Princess of Hobnob, is developing into a typical Black Labrador Retriever. She’s four months old and her feet are continuing to grow…as is her love for the ball…she loves to chew her squeaky toys (and the floor is littered with them)…she has a rock collection on the kitchen counter and another on the railing of the porch…she picks up rocks around the yard and we take them from her mouth. She finds sticks and acorns but rocks are her favs. Best news? No accidents in the house for four days in a row…a miracle. This dog is extremely smart but not as stubborn as our Brittany…making her a joy to work with in training. Oh…and her tail can now dust the top of the coffee table…she’s growing.
A significant amount of snow happened last night for the first time this year. Moisture from the sky has been hard to come by this year. Still time to catch up…but we’re about two major systems down. Each major system drops 5-7 inches of rain. Our historical average is about 54 inches of water…more than Seattle by a few buckets.
The snow was Madison’s first experience. Fun?! Oh yeah…fun to watch her play. She is a bit frustrated with trying to find good rocks to carry around (how dare they hide)…but zooming around playing slip-n-slide is pretty cool. When the accumulated snow from a branch fell on her…the look on her face just cracked me up. Everything is new. We should all have that fresh, new, and fun experience every day.
