Fez turned 1 this week. (on Huck's birthday. They literally share a birthday) He's still very much a kitten. When he crashes in the middle of playing he looks so funny. (Like a toddler who falls asleep in the high chair) He just stops....and crashes. Then the rest of the pride breathes easy.
I am trying:We had Weight Watcher pot roast last night. It is very easy in the crock pot. The basic difference is you only use low sodium beef broth as the liquid. A nice warm dinner for a very cold February night. It was about 18 degrees without the wind chill last night. The nice thing about the Weight Watcher recipes in their anniversary book,( Which AL gifted me last year), is they include measurements and points for the meal. So 7 points for a small portion.
I am watching:Miss Pie in the newest bed in the house. It is in Huck's old corner. Miss Pie tried a new canned food and ate so much of it so fast she then wailed for a half an hour. She was nauseous and threw up a ton of the canned food undigested. I was a bit worried about her. She is an odd little cookie and things throw her off more than the others. Today's she's fine and she is not getting any canned food like the others.
I am enjoying nature as:We have pretty icicles hanging from our old garage. I have seen a possum and a cat hanging around the old garage when I do venture out at night. We often find evidence of mice in the old garage. I don't mind mice in there.
We have a Hawk that is picking off sparrows in our yard this winter. He is so magnificent looking, I don't mind the consequences.
In my knit world:My knit pal Karen is crocheting hats for Haiti again. She is almost done with 20 hats. She loves this ergonomic crochet handle. She got it at Michaels. It took her a little while, not long, to adjust her hand to it. Now she crochets with cotton without fatiguing her hands. I may have to get one of these. Karen is usually full of really good ideas. (not limited to knitting and crocheting.)
I am finishing my Frolicking feet socks today. I have an itch to knit.......another Trap scarf. It has been over a year! I found leftover Misti Alpaca cotton and I like the way the wheat and the blue look together. My favorite Scarves are cotton. My favorite scarf pattern is still Trap.....
I am appreciating:Beatles always heads straight for my camera lens. Hi Beatle Bug beauty of a black cat. He is so dear. He would make a great therapy cat. I'm considering getting him a new lead and working with him.
I am trying:
Another recipe I tried in this book last night was for Peach cobbler. Zach and Troy liked it. It was not rich enough for me. That's why it is only 6 points, of course. The peaches were fresh and microwaved with jam and cranberry juice until bubbly. Then you baked them with little dollops of flour mixed with buttermilk and a tad of sugar. I gave it a C . They gave it B plus.
I am: thankful for every reader. Thanks for indulging in the long post!
