Our front door knocker.
Of course it's a dog!
I have to remember to take it when we move. It was a gift.
Did your mom ever make Graham Cracker Cookie Sandwiches?
Mine did, and I make them too now and then.
After I got my lick off the beaters, Fletch, Eli, and Ollie got theirs.
Sammi and Janie were snoozing and were oblivious.
They all know they get to lick the beaters when I bake and gather around.
Just like kiddies!
Ever feel like you're being watched?
Fletch is always down there no matter what I'm making.
When you sit there, food magically falls from heaven.
Didn't you know that?
They are crunchy now, but after a day or two in a tightly-sealed container, they get soft. That's the way I like 'em. The Captain likes them when they're still crunchy.
Unfortunately, because of the bad weather, he didn't make the 30-minute trip home from work on Friday when I made these. He slept at work in his office because of the bad weather. He had to be back there early the next morning anyway, so he just stayed there. It just wasn't worth the hassle or the risk that he'd get into an accident. People drive so crazy.
I take back everything I said about Sammi not braving the snow.
She went out and peed like a big, brave girl yesterday.
(Although, she still pooped on the porch. Ha.)
Note to a8383: Sammi is half Boston Terrier and half Black Pug.
Note to Anonymous who asked me to email a pattern: I don't click on any Anonymous links or email anyone who is Anonymous. It's too risky these days. If it was a legitimate request, you can find the pattern for my Sampler Blanket by searching my blog for a few posts with the beginning rounds (then I just mostly repeated and winged it), and there are other ones on Ravelry called "Stripey Blanket" that list their patterns.
I remembered to set some seeds out for the birdies.
Poor things must have been cold and hungry.
This is how it looks today.
It's all melting.
I'm making a pair of slipper socks for the Captain. I was totally confused yesterday and didn't get the first one finished. I've figured out what I was reading wrong and should finish them today.
Will show you the finished pair. I don't think this is the prettiest pattern you could make, but they're quick and easy to make, and they're warm. I'm making myself some pink ones next.
I'm giving the knitting a rest for a bit, but I'm not putting it aside forever, just in case you're wondering.
That's all for today. I'm making some banana bread and then finishing those slipper socks.
