More frozen precipitation...sigh, let's knit!

Church was cancelled!
This morning, one of the elders called to let us know that the service had been cancelled due to the dangerous road conditions.
It's 18F and very calm. It seems that 'everyone' is home and not going about in the ice.
Had to post this note on the door, so that no one trips on the door hug. (some have tripped on it, I'm not saying who)
When *they* open the door, *they* don't look down, and trrrrripppp...It's not as if *they* didn't know that the door hug is there, but...oh, well. [yes, I have to paint the threshold and door jam]

Moving right along: I sketched the sweater for gs2* (who now is 1e) in my knitting binder. This is where I keep notes and sketches on all the things I've knitted since the late 80s.
We'll have to have some of these, later with some spiced apple cider. [sorry about the blurry picture, but you get the idea] We can have these because they are organic.

This is the Aspen Mulled Spices, this is our last carton, and need to get more. I use 2Tbsp per qt. of clear apple cider.

By the way, on our way home from groceries, DH got me this, and we'll have the left overs for lunch, but don't tell anybody. DH wanted Campbell's tomato soup (?!?!?!... I'm not saying what I'm thinking, 'cause some of you, also, like tomato soup) So I made the tomato soup and a grilled cheese 'sammich' aka sandwich. He loooooved it.
On the upper left of the picture is a little jar of fetta cheese that I diced and put in basil and olive oil. I used dry basil and IT DOES NOT TASTE THE SAME AS FRESH! On the right side is my 'cooking odor eliminator candle' from the Vermont Country Store. It really works.

Be it known unto all, that from here on our grandchildren will be refered to as letters--in birth order after the # of each of our children: i.e., 1a, 2a. and so on.
This idea is the SOLE PROPERTY of 1a--who is brilliant--but that's just my opinion.[actually, they all are brilliant, each one in his own right]
Those who know us, know who I will be referring to, the rest of you will know it's one of our gc.

I'll leave you with this:
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." Gen 1:26

In His hands, ^__^

Wow do you design your own sweaters? I'm impressed. It's raining right now here and it's 32 degrees so it will freeze pretty soon. So far they haven't cancelled church but I think it would be better if they did, very few people will be there.
I want one of those candles that get rid of oders. I love fish but it really stinks up the house.
Love the kitty picture.
