Silver and Gold

January Moon Set
Early Morning January Full Moon 
It has been a lot about the weather lately here in Meadows of Dan. Yesterday we had heavy rains but none of the flooding that surrounding areas have suffered and today it's cold and blowing snow again. Tuesday was wonderfully warm and a great day for getting out and running errands. Today is a perfect day to stay in and get lots of work done after spending yesterday with good friends.

The cat has no good opinion of this weather and spends as much time as he can sleeping upstairs on the bed. It's hard to get a good picture of him because when he sees me he wants immediate attention.

Emma's first day
Emma, A Purebred Norwegian Elkhound
And Lily has another new friend. More about her in the next post, although I will say that she is another rescue and pure gold.

What I'm spinning: Greenberry House hand dyed and hand carded Corriedale and alpaca blend. Singles done and getting ready to ply.
What I'm knittingGarden Pond by Patricia Clift Martin in Fortissima Socka
What I'm crocheting: it's all hibernating
What I'm reading: Gargantua and Pantagruel by Rabelais; Vindication  by Lyndall Gordon.
Current sounds & sights for spinning along: Robin Hood on Netlfix
How the diet is going: Walking an hour in the morning with Emma and a half hour in the afternoon. Cutting back on sweets and not craving sodas anymore!
