Where Have I Been??

Holy cow!! Didn't realize it had been such a long time since I posted!! Time sure flies these days...thought that retirement would be boring but instead seem busier than ever. Of course, a lot of it is just plain fun stuff so am really loving the way life has led us...

This is a picture out my kitchen window. There were actually 4 deer, 2 geese and 2 cats. The deer and the cats are permanent guest. The geese stop by, lay their eggs and eventually head north. Last year, we started feeding them.. the last day they were here one ate out of my hand. Didn't take them long to make their way to the house for food this year!

Not sure when the last pair of socks was finished... so glad to have these done! 72 stitches, size 1 needles and Deborah Norville Serenity sock yarn. I do not like this yarn all that well. Have more that was purchased at the same time and will use it but it is not nearly as nice as some of the other sock yarns I've used. In the end, you get what you pay for! The yarn is definitely stretchy.

Started another blog at www.bittenbender2blogspot.com with only untried recipes. If you are interested, hope you will go by and try one!

Lucas has finished his Masters in Environmental Management (though graduation isn't until June), Laura will graduate in June with her MSW and Jason is working on his MSW. Lucas will be leaving the Air Force the end of this month... can't believe it has been eight years since he left. It was great that they all enlisted but especially with the current political situation, I am glad they will all be out of the military.

Off to start a new pair of socks-hopefully this pair doesn't take so long!
