Here's the livingroom this morning with the draperies still intact:
This evening, Melissa's Dad and his helper Patrick arrived to install the new honeycombs:
and here are our sliders with the new window treatments:
As I was preparing my breakfast this morning, I heard a strange licking noise and turned around to see this:
I apologize for the pic being so blurred, but Barker was licking so fast and furiously that I couldn't keep up! Elsie was in heaven...I doubt that she's had her ears washed since her older sister Sophie passed away last year. So she was due!!
Here's the lovely "couple" just as the bath concluded:
I was invited to join a little knitting group that meets once a month at Pannera's, and today was the day! I had such a good time, and I'm finally getting some help and guidance on my socks (remember those from last winter?)
On the left is my friend Roberta, who invited me to join, and Ann is on the right.
Here's Ann modeling her marvelous "crayon box" sweater, which she chose to knit in varying shades of white/ecru/beige with all different and wonderful yarns:
I just LOVE that sweater! It was so good to be with a group of real knitters and to listen to all of the different ideas and ways of doing things! I think this is going to be a great group for me!
Here's Teresa, Roberta's daughter, who is visiting from DC for the holidays:
Isn't that a great scarf that she's knitting!
So it was another great day for me: new window treatments and new friends!....and I got to paint some silk and work on some rusty stuff!!! WooHoo!!!
