It's a glorious sunny day, still a bit breezy, but warming up. For this I am grateful!
I've been a little under the weather with a bit of a respiratory bug, but much improved today. After spending most of the last few days laying in bed, my poor body is so stiff and sore. I'm trying to walk and stand today.
I missed yarn along again this week, but that doesn't mean I haven't been knitting. This Pi Shawl is on my big circular needle right now. I'm going to run out of space before it is done. Another participant in my knit along was telling me she is using FOUR 30 inch circulars right now. I think I'm going to have to go on the hunt for another one later today.
I've lost the label already, but the yarn is 75% alpaca and 25% acrylic. It's lovely squishy stuff!
I'm very busy with genealogical projects these days. I'm working with two adoptees who are eager to find their families. One, of course, is my 80 year old aunt. We are close, but I am worried close is as far as we are going to get. The other person appeared as a close match on my Ancestry DNA page over the weekend. His father is the adoptee. The non-identifying information they were given is VERY familiar to me, and the DNA segments substantiate the match. The gentleman is the grandson of one of my grandmothers siblings. The tricky part is going to be proving WHICH sibling is the parent. Three of the siblings in question were in the right place at the right time and working at the place in question. I'm working closely with the fellow to optimize the resources. Either way, he is my only living cousin on that family line.....and I'm thrilled to have him in our fold.
Animals, don't we love them
Miss Kitty LOVES a basket of dirty laundry to recline in. When it is in front of Cat TV it is the most comfortable place a cat can be.
It's hard to see the wing marks in this photo, but Mr. Owl swooped down and scooped up one of the many squirrels that hang around here.
My grandpup Steel was here for a visit on the weekend. He was glued to the Pet TV screen as well. Poor boy spend some time looking for his cousin Nemo when they first arrived. He wandered around the house sniffing and whining. Yeah, we felt a little sad too Steel.....
