And Later this week

they are mocking us with the possibility of snow.  It has gone from chance to 60% of wet something (Im betting rain).  All I can say is when I see it falling I will get excited.

Someone, years ago, created a wonderful site that is still updated to let us techie people know its snowing somewhere in PDX when we are hiding in our caves, I did say techie people and I have a house full who are allergic to sunlight – or so it seems. 

When it is snowing the site flashes and has a gif of Kermit arm flailing in excitement.  Fun to pull up when the possibility of snow falling anywhere close cause excited Kermit is just fun to watch.

Green Juice

I pulled out the juicer tonight and made a killer green monster.  Used up some salad that was on its way out, orange, chard, cucumber, tomato, spinach, carrots, bell pepper, apple, kiwi and various frozen fruits.  I may have left out a couple things but you get the gist.  Change this go around is that the fruit (outside the tomato & orange) was Ninja’d and then added to the veggie mix.  With the apple, it gives a crunchy texture.  And not to bad.  Had D try it first.  Could use a bit of ginger but that’s a mix I have to have all by myself.

Cowl

I made a start on my CAL Cowl but for some reason Im having issues wrapping the grey-matter around slip-stitching a foundation single crochet chain together.  Everyway I try it looks awful.  I really don’t want to start this with a normal chain.  The foundation chain just looks so much nicer!  So off to research the interwebs to find out what step Im missing.
