That's Amore

The first picture shows more the true color of the yarn I used to make the doily in my last post. It's called Country Rose, but it's not the color of any rose I've ever seen. I hope it's showing up correctly on your screen because it really is a pretty color. I liked this brand of yarn, but I did notice that it wasn't the same as Aunt Lydia's. It's a subtle difference, but it's there...not better or worse, just different. I'd buy it again if I wanted a particular color in this brand.

The Paperwhite bulbs I bought are in the bowl and ready to start growing. I found this particular way of growing them indoors on the Internet...just glass beads and enough water to cover the bottoms of the bulbs. I can't wait to watch them progress! I'm more excited than I should be over these. At least I can stir up some enthusiasm for something.

I'm going to keep them sitting with all the other plants in my kitchen window. I think that window has some kind of special magic for plants, as they've all done really well. Crossing my fingers it works its magic on the Paperwhites too.

Funny Dog Pics...


That's right...I broke out the snow people!
Although it's still very much fall around here...

 See the sliver of a moon in the above picture?
It's very faint.

I think I can get better pics of the moon with my camera.
There are some settings I'm going to play with and try again.
I'm an amateur, but I try.

Have a nice day.
