Snow day for Little Rock

We woke up this morning to nearly 4 inches of snow on the ground.  That meant no school, no city services and many stores and restaurants were closed. 

Snow days are fun, even if I do have to work.  (I work from home, so no reason not to.)  Our neighborhood comes alive with people taking walks, kids carrying sleds, snowmen being built and the sounds of ATVs cruising around.  Plus, the birds seem to flock to the feeder.  Perhaps, it's because the ground is covered in snow or because JD doesn't like to get his paws wet.

I did get out and enjoy the snow this morning with Steve and Fido and did so early enough to be the first person to make a snow angel in the softball field at Reservoir Park.

Scooter thought she wanted to go out as well...

More knitting...

This is Lulu.  Sweet thing loves to shop for pastry and flowers and wears cute skirts with her black boots.  If only she could get that mess of hair under control!

The pattern was adapted from the Human Bean pattern in Knitting Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec.  I knit her up on size 6 dpns with worsted weight yarn.

And another Mochimochi pattern:

It is a special gift for a friend as she recovers from a very serious bicycling accident.  We're pulling for you Sally!

Fido on Christmas Day 2010

Cute (but grainy) video I took of our Fido on Christmas day.  The gift was from Steve's folks.
