This afternoon I bundled up and went out to fill the bird feeders. The squirrels were quick to find the cob corn...
and the peanut wreath. I saw one of them pick up a fallen peanut and immediately bury it in the snow, not that there's much snow left. It's more some ice/snow hybrid with all of the warm days we've had. And it's supposed to be 40 and rainy on Wednesday. Crazy weather.
When my fingers thawed out I pulled out the Draw Squad book and drew the figures of the next lesson for today's drawing practice. I've noticed that I'm doing a bit less erasing these days which I take as a positive sign.
Today's gratitude journal page is a little sparse so I drew the pictures bigger but six things is an adequate number to be grateful for, I think.
I knitted on the Zauber sock this evening while watching TV and got to the heel. You can't really tell that I've started the heel but, I assure you, I have. I'm counting rounds and increasing stitches to make the Strong heel (Strong is the name of the lady who invented it, not that it's an extra-sturdy heel) which saves the whole picking up stitches and decreasing through the gusset of a "regular" heel. A part that I regularly screw up so I'm glad to have an alternative.
Today's toss was a Camembert that had passed its prime--in the fall of 2019. Got shoved in the back of the cheese drawer and forgotten. Buh-bye.
It was a beautiful sunny day today but frigid, only getting up to 12 degrees, so it was a chilly trip out to fill the feeders but I try to do it every weekend so that the birds and squirrels can rely on having something to eat.
