December 31

The dogs and I walked, this morning to a colorful sunrise.  Last night's walk, there were some stars, a crescent shaped moon and a very bright star or planet.

I think Meggen is feeling guilty.  who knows why?  She decided to have a timeout in her kennel.

Flock of Geese

Yesterday's drive to town, I saw a huge flock of birds flying.  I think I was several hundred Canadian geese, they were flying high.  It was an interesting sight to watch, as they changed formations.

Tonight was the office party,  home safe and sound.

Sock Class

Yesterday, at sock class two people completed their socks.  I pulled out Julie's socks and had a pile of yarn.  The rest of the class are plugging away on their socks.

Baby Hat

Since Julie's sock is on a time-out, I finished this baby hat.

I am almost to the toes of Julie's sock, knitting away, kind of concerned that the sock is looking smallish.  I put it on my foot and it is snug on my foot, a little more denial, Julie's sock is getting ripped out, frogged, ripit, ripit, ripit.  Not really a big deal, just backward progress.  I have had suggestions to give someone with a smaller foot the sock.  I could, but the color is really for Julie.  All knitting is not perfect.  My sock class may chuckle that the teacher has frogged her sock.

Sunny Sunday

We went to Seattle to visit Gary's father, who is recovering from a fractured hip.  It was a nice visit, but nice to get back home, too.

Last night's drive home, a cow was standing on the center line of the road.  I didn't hit the cow.

Driving home, this evening with the light of sunset in the distance, I saw a lots of birds flying.  There were some ducks and some smaller birds.  There were lots of birds, it was interesting sight.
