Use your imagination!

Blogger still doesn't feel I need photos up. So you'll have to imagine that it's snowing outside, Geronimo is curled up on the blue blanket on the guest bed with one paw over his eyes, and Mirando is curled up in a little ball in the pappasan chair.

Knitting: You'll have to imagine that I'm about 6 inches into the body of Tempting II. And that I'm halfway through my third ball of yarn on the Pinwheel Blanket. The Pinwheel Blanket now has 350 stitches on the needles. I'm still unclear on when I should stop, but I imagine it'll come to me. I think I've decided to use all four balls of the light pink, then switch to the mulled wine, cast off, and do a crocheted border. Why not? I also think I have to cast on for Tubey. I have my yarns all assembled, and I have my stripe pattern planned, and I'll be able to wear it way before Tempting II (this is *not* one of the places in the country where it's spring, or even close). It'll only be my fourth project on the needles.

Reading: The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde

Writing: Chapters one and two revised. Started chapter 3, but I'm only a couple of paragraphs in.

Cooking: Last night was all about the leftovers. Enchiladas, pizza, the fridge is full. I have two upcoming cooking events, a dinner party and a book club that I'm hosting. I think I'm going to do Mexican for the book club, probably tamales. And probably Italian for the dinner party. We'll see.

See! Blogger is doing it to you, too. I can finally post pictures, but I couldn't for a few weeks in february. Do you have a spyware blocker on your computer? That's what was wrong with mine. It was loaded with spy-crap. Try clearing your cache and making sure you have javascript running, too.

If all else fails, hunt down the blogger nerds and threaten them with a few knitting needles or Geronimo.

Hey, if you want help making tamales...I know that kind of cooking project is more fun when you're not doing it alone.
