When I felt I'd had enough of freezing my butt off, I decided to do a little weaving. Found this yarn on sale at Michaels. It's Caron Simply Soft Shadows in Soft Merino, Opal Twist and Dark Moss. I just really liked the way these colors looked together. Alternated the warp, 8 ends of each color.
It's coming out as a nice tweedy plaid. Would like to make this into a pillow.
Perfect cold weather dinner! Pork ribs in sauerkraut and apples. You just brown 2 lbs. of pork ribs, put them in the slow cooker, add 2 small granny smiths, 1/2 cup apple juice and sauerkraut. Cook on low for 8 hours and you've got some good eatin'!
Then of course desert. This didn't last long between me, Che and Ger.
Miss P was getting cabin fever too. She wanted to go outside. Of course she is well insulated so I didn't worry about her too much.

Finished the variegated Valentine's scarf. Came out very toasty warm and pretty.
We came home to a broken heater last night. Poor Che was frozen. Sammy was shivering. It was supposed to go down to 34. Yay. So, Gerry and I went to HD to get a new thermostat, thinking that must be the problem. Ger installed it and it's nice. We needed a new one anyway. But it didn't fix the problem. So we slept under about 5 quilts...well I did. Gerry just slept under the comforter because he's a New Yawka. Sammy crammed himself in our bed up under Gerry's armpit I think. So the guy came and fixed it this morning. Good thing because we're getting another cold front this weekend.
Littleman found himself a nice warm place to hide. I was putting away towels this morning and heard this weird motorboat sound. There he was in the towels, purring away.
