Yippee, it's Post number 329!!!

Yes, Beth was correct, it's an Ugli fruit! And although the nice produce guy in the store entertained us and juggled apples while we debated the purchase, he was WRONG!!! It was not a tasty treat, it was a bland citrus fruit. Though I don't regret buying it for the disgusting-appeal.
Beth will have some "interesting" red mohair yarn sent her way in the very near future. I really am working on my PIF gifties, gals, I promise.....
Not much else to report. Had my 90-day review at work; the boss and I spent a good 3/4 of the time larfing our arses off at some of the paperwork required for this review. I'm starting to see some of the goofy bureaucracy at this place, and I thank all the powers that be in our universe that the woman who hired me is as sarcastic and cynical as I am. We just have the best time together. And so I didn't get fired! Hooray!
Still no crafting to show you. Sorry! Been busy. Maybe this weekend. It snowed three times last weekend...wonder what's next? Locusts? Frogs?
I love it here.

Mmm, purty...and a quiz! (with a prize!!)

Tulips are the Victoria's Secret models of flowers: shiny, silky, and provocative.

There has been some knitting and crafting of late, but I haven't documented it. I will, I promise. In the meantime, have a look at these:

I don't pretend to have Jane's knowledge or green thumb, and certainly not her photography skills, but these sprang up in our yard and I must say I am thrilled to have them here.

Here's a wacky spate of snow that I mentioned last post....
See the giggling girlie who should've been abed?

A wild ball (or two) of strange red mohair yarn to the reader who can tell what this is.....

Any guesses?

Barred owls

Two of them, this morning in the fog. Heard something indecipherable, wandered through the dark house and peeked out the back door just in time to hear them again and see two big dark silhouettes sweeping away to the woods near the house. They must have been sitting in the big tree out back that has branches stretching over the house.
