pattern, West Desert Hood. I tweaked it just a bit to make it less hood like and more cowl like! It is a fun knit and inspired by a recent project on this blog where she used a similar honeycomb patter for her sock.

We had a Marty Stouffer moment recently; there was a great commotion in the front yard so I ran out expecting to see a dog which usually is the source of the cats all freaking out. But it was this vulture who decided to dine on our sidewalk! Bill scooped the squirrel and gave it a toss off to the side of our property.
Soon, there was quite a scuffle for this prize! I caught a picture of these venerable vultures!
This is my cordless vacuum which does an excellent job removing dust bunnies from my hardwood floored home!

Bill is responding well to the new medicine and we see improvements in the wound site, a return to healthy skin color and a reduction in the swelling. Thank you for your words of encouragement and prayers!

We will be finishing the antibiotic the day before Thanksgiving......how appropriate!
We paused by this field of sunflowers on the way home from the doctor's office. They were pointing to the sun-very pretty!
I am knitting this pair of socks again. I can tell I have been under some pressure-I finished this pair the first time on size 1 needles, using the same number of stitiches I use for size 2 needles and never tried them on-just knit away and........when I should have been yelling Voila! I said, Oh, no! They were way too small and since they are for a specific someone with feet the same size as mine, I knew it was just NOT going to work. I ripped out both socks and immediately cast on again. Note to self-think! So glad yarn is able to be used again and no one is the wiser-unless you tell!
