It is Pi day and this is the day we celebrate our Pie’s birthday . She’s 4! She’s still a tiny cat but she is mighty. She has a new mouse toy with catnip to celebrate. Happy Birthday crazy one. In addition to her congenital cataracts. she has some other odd qualities. She rarely sheds a hair. Her coat is different than the other cats’ coats. She’s somewhat of a shedless cat. Nothing wrong with that!
My Rain cowl turned into a snow cowl. We only got a few inches of snow here yesterday. Perhaps one of the BEST things about moving that I didn’t plan on, but love, is that we are not in the Lake Effect area anymore.
We enjoyed living near Lake Michigan and going to the beach with the kids when they were little. We went often. However, it is a huge body of water. I also worked at a hospital just a block from the Lake. If you ‘ve never seen the Great Lakes, they are more like small oceans. Truly. And …they impact the weather near the shores. Big time. As in, it does NOT warm up in Spring until June due to the lake breezes carrying air over the freezing waters.
I ‘ve been envious of the places just a tad west of the shore who get a fully 15 to 20 degrees warmer in Spring because they are not in the Lake Effect area. I live a full 35 miles west of the big Lake now. Wheeeeeeeeeeee! Now I’m hoping for a true Spring. Fingers crossed!!
Being the bossy boss of my own knitting, I’ve manipulated the Rain cowl pattern.I just did not like the honeycomb repeats. The holes were too big and the actual knitting was cumbersome. So, I’ve decided to eliminate the honeycomb parts. I’m probably half way done with the cowl. In my early knitting days, I could not do this. I’d just give up. I feel like this is big progress for me.
Have a great Pi day. 3.14159
