Lots of Stuff!

I'm sorry I've been away from this space.  I DID visit my LYS and found the treasures above.  Watch and listen to the video I made while winding the hueloco skein.  Nicole dyes yarn in Boulder and the yarn shop carries her yarn now!  Weeeeee!

 Prince Tim continues to follow us around the house.  He isn't naughty.  He is CUDDLY.  He's the perfect petty pet for us!  
 Lovely Heather sent my posy order in quick time!  Aren't they pretty?
 Nap time for Tim again!
 Another warm day at the park! 
 And another sweetie pie wrapped in Granny's shawl! 
 A late birthday lunch with Miss Bug! 
 A movie watching/sitting on the sofa afternoon.  Millie Rose kept saying, "Keep knitting, Granny!"  I kept saying, "It's crochet."
 A new pink tea pot at the tea shop (mall).  Pretty!  
 Crocus at the Denver Botanic Gardens!
 I tagged along with Jeff, Christie, and the boys! 
 A weird lemon-y thing with the identification signage below. 

 The Dale Chihuly glass that lives at the Denver Botanic Gardens is stunning!  It was a free day at the gardens so it was crowded.  I asked James what he likes best about visiting there and he said, "I like to run on the paths!"  He does!  
 Afterwards we dined at the Saucy Noodle.  My spaghetti and big meatball in red sauce was delicious!  

 I think I already showed you this, but aren't Dutch iris divine?

 Last Thursday Plum Cake and I had a tea party.  We've been having tea parties a lot lately, using my mama's tea cups, but Plum chose a more modern cuppa.

If you want to experience something adorable, watch this video.

 I got Valentine roses from sweetie pie Bill (even though he was in Australia!)

 The weather was warm enough for outdoor dish washing!

 I've been knitting more socks.

 This yarn is for a Craftsy class knitted basket.
 Hyacinths are on sale at the grocery store.  

 We have good candy to eat.

I took Miss Bug to the Polish Pottery Outlet to buy her teapot for her birthday (she picked out a lovely one) and I bought this lovey mug for Bill. 

 Lizzy picked a fairy house for me when she and her mommy were out shopping and my sweet sister sent me the mouse.  AW! 
That's a drink from a firehose.  I'm sorry for so much all at once.  
Today I am off to the fabric store to buy fleece fabric for blankets we're going to make after Bible study tomorrow.  Two friends are taking them to the homeless shelter.

February is waning and soon we'll be into blustery March and Lent!  
Thank you for calling in!
