I'm Ba-a-a-ck

I'm back. I warned I couldn't be quiet for very
Thanks to everyone for their kind comments on the previous post. Personal issues continue but we will persevere.
Onto life now............

It snowed here yesterday. The storm was to be south of us. Uh......think the weatherman missed this one.
We awakened this morning to a temperature of 3 degrees Fahrenheit. bbrrrr.......

Mr. Bettis romped and played in the snow and finally came in from the cold. He actually crawled under this blanket on his loveseat. Silly dog.

I have been knitting but have very few pictures. I finished this hat over a month ago but I'm afraid it will be too small by the time it reaches it's destination. The recepient has a lot of trouble receiving packages and schedule conflicts (busy, illness etc) have not permitted a meet-up.
There's also a handknit sweater but it will be too small also. *sigh* I'm sure there will be someone in the future who will need a handknit sweater and hat for their little one.

I baked some oatmeal cookies last week. Anything for sanity.
The hubby came down with a fever and sore throat last weekend. I have never understood how this man never said a word when he fractured his back or had the table saw war . Yet you'd think he was the only one in the world with a sore throat. (eyeroll)
By Wednesday he was no longer complaining. When he no longer complains, I know there's trouble brewing. (he says the same thing about me but.....pppfffttt whatever)
The fever raged and I began to see the warning signs of his old buddy, pneumonia. He went kicking and screaming to the dr and sure enough he had pneumonia in both lungs, ear infections and sinusitis. He has been receiving injections and put on some hefty antibiotics and other medications. Thank goodness he's improving and will be returning to work soon. ...........did I say that? LOL

LOVE that hat! Mr B looks very comfy... I say that as I stare at 4 other dogs doing pretty much the same thing today :)

Awww, Mr. B was cold after all that playing in the snow. :) He looks so sweet & innocent curled up there. SNOL

Cute hat! I hate it's gonna be too small, are you sure?

Dang, oatmeal cookies, I didn't see any in my mailbox....hmmmm....

Hope the hubby is feeling better soon! (& back to work soon too!LOL)

Glad the saw warrior is feeling better!

It was bitter here today too, especially with the power out for 8+ hours...

Sorry to hear Ed is sick. I got that pneumonia shot last year and let me tell you, it was the best thing in the world! :) I sent you something via e-mail, enjoy it.

Glad to see you are back.

Love Mr. Bettis under his blankie. LOL Give that boy a kiss on the snoot for me.

Hope the hubby starts to feel better soon. Tell him to take his meds like a big boy and he might get one of those oatmeal cookies. ;-)
