|Notice my little teacup? It's from Buckingham Palace! (when we went to the U.K.)|
The surprise that had us all in stitches! Typical British to come up with something like this. Of course all night we kept asking each other if anyone would care for some spotted dick love? Sheesh!

Well, the weather here in N.E. Ohio has been sooo mild. Record highs etc. over the holidays. The new year has brought dropping temps and it even feels a bit chilly inside. Winston however, manages to find some sun even if it's just a tad.. Maybe I should put a sweater on him.
I have started back with my exercise plan and I've even tried a few new recipes with my Shakeology.
|This one was really good. Greenberry Shakeo, 1/2 a banana, orange juice and almond milk|
|I started on January 1 with putting $3.65 in my savings jar|
|The color is Fir Wreath|
So I was a bit frustrated with my double points. They aren't sharp like my Knitpick Harmony needles are and when working with small dk or sock yarn, it's very frustrating. I did work about 10 rows and got this far...
before switching to the magic loop method and Harmony needles. I think it will be beautiful when done.
And last, our dinner last night was amazing if I may say so myself.
|Salmon with Foxpoint seasoning and warm winter slaw|
I finally got some more Foxpoint seasoning from when Bev went to Penzeys right before Christmas. Funny story, she called me from there and asked me if I had said I needed some more spices. I had told her to get me the large Foxpoint and she said "are you sure? It's $37!". I said, uh no. Get me the one for about $15. The funny part is, I got a gift card from Paul for Christmas to Penzeys and he heard me on the phone and was thinking...don't get the big one!
As always from my wordy, heavy photo laden self...
