Charlotte Women Grab Back!!!

We were peaceful, pink pussy hats marching loud and proud and we were 10,000 strong!!!

There were women and men young and old and everything in between.

For as far as the eye could see!!  It was an amazing turnout and I was so proud to be a part of this historic event.

A Good Cause

So the snow storm has passed on leaving only a small amount of snow here (YAY!) but the cold is lingering.  When it gets this cold and there is no snow cover for insulation guess what happens to water lines.  They freeze!   Which is precisely what ours did. In hind sight I prolly shouldn't have prayed so hard for no snow because now we are without water until the warmer weather returns.  We are hoping by Tuesday.  Any and all prayers for warmer weather soon will be greatly appreciated.  :-)  Oh.......and have you seen this?

It's a really fun Pussy Hat Project.  Get it?  Pussy Cat......Pussy Hat.  It's a cute play on words to draw attention to a really good cause.  They are asking knitters to join the fun and help keep all those brave women who will be attending the Women's March in DC warm.  I came across it on Mereknits blog and couldn't wait to start knitting one.  The hats have cute pussy cat ears and they should all be pink or shades of pink.   I can't wait to see all those pink heads at the National Mall in DC on Jan. 21st.

The free cute pattern is here along with all the info on the cause and the march.  So if you like to knit hats and you're feeling a bit out of sorts about the incoming administration grab your needles and dive into that stash for a splash of pink and let's make ourselves heard.  And seen!

It's here!

Blew in with freezing rain all night knocking out the power, then turning to snow this morning.

Party Girl Reba is excitedly watching it accumulate.  Crazy dog loves snow!

And it is accumulating much to my disappointment!

The horse is tucked in the barn and will still need a blanket tonight as those temps are really going to be dipping.

After I see to him I'm going to park it in front of the fireplace and knit!  My only consolation is that where I use to live ,back in the middle of no where , it's a whole lot worse!!!

A Storms A Brewin

At least that's what they're saying and I'm Not happy about it.  The warnings have been scrolling across my TV screen for days.

I'm so hoping they are wrong about it but the radar is clearly charting it's path directly over the top of us.  We are in line for a good 4-7" or more.  :-0  

Grand Puppy Reba is awaiting it with gleeful anticipation.  She always loved it when she visited us when we lived way up north.

Even Lilly Bean is curious as to what is about to happen out there.  I on the other hand am Not.  And just to add insult to injury the temperatures are suppose to hit record cold lows in the aftermath.  Back to shoveling and blanketing my horse GRRRRRR!  I thought I moved far enough south to escape this stuff but apparently it just followed me!
