Winter has settled in for a long visit in Western New York. With it has come frigid temperatures, slippery going, strong winds and gray, overcast days.
A great time to settle in on a Saturday morning and finish a good book I've been reading. Have you read any of Debbie Macomber's books? I love her Blossom Street books and have now read three of them.
I'm also crocheting an afghan with 6 sided granny squares. I wasn't sure how knitting and crocheting would work with a dog in the house that loves my undivided attention! Morgan just curls up on the couch beside me and takes a nap while I'm working with yarn.
This week I will have ambulatory surgery to remove a cataract from one eye and two weeks later, they will do the other eye. Yes, I'm a little nervous about that but everyone I know that has had this surgery has assured me it has come a long way over the years and recovery is quick. One person said she didn't feel anything but she could hear the surgeon singing a country song while he was working on her! I just haven't figured out how I will survive without my cup of coffee before going to the hospital.
The harsh winter won't last forever and soon I will be on my way South for our annual cousin's reunion that we all look forward to. This is year #7.
And I'm really looking forward to smoking meat again when the weather warms. Last spring I bought a Weber Smoky Mountain smoker and truly enjoyed it all summer. You don't know what you are missing if you have never tasted smoked meat right out of the smoker!
