It is my blogiversary!! 12/19/2005 was my first post the day I created my blog. I am sitting in my living/dining room with a table full of yarn and 2 unfinished scarves. I need to start another one right away. The bias scarf that I need to start won't take long. I found out on Thursday night that my friend from work her favorite color is brown. The scarf I am knitting for her is grey. I guess I should have asked her what her favorite color was in the first place. Well I have 3 skeins of Lion Brand yarn in Fishersmen's Wool. I have a 1 solid brown skein, and 2 maple tweed. I have started another scarf for her in the maple tweed; which is a mix of brown and off white. Well here in Asheboro NC we did not get as much snow as predicted. However we did get some snow and sleet. I have very little experience driving in icy conditions so I came home 2 hours early from work. So I watched it snow and sleet while working on the scarf and browsing the Internet. I got out early this morning, cleaned off the car, and made a few stops at a few stores. I made one of my favorite things for dinner tonight... Manhattan Catfish Chowder! I got the recipe out of the local paper The Courier-Tribune in 2001. If you like catfish you might be able to find a recipe @ www.catfishinstitute.com . The pictures I am posting tonight are of two known enemies united in the face of the cold weather. Most of the time they can be found fighting and hissing at each other. Only 3 days to work next week!
