Yesterday I was checking out the weather forecast for the upcoming days, and was very surprised to see a chance of showers and or thunderstorms for today. Okay, so no big deal for other areas, but in Southern California we don't get much rain. And the forecast only called for 30%, which is like the Magic 8 Ball coming up with a "Don't count on it" response. So I was caught off guard when I heard the big KABOOM of thunder and looked outside to see it pouring rain, and a slightly soggy dog sitting by the door. But the rain really lasted only long enough to wet the surface, and that's probably all the rain we'll see here for at least a month.
Rain and cool weather, well I nearly dashed to don my freshly made sweater, but then decided it wasn't really that cold in the house. But, thank goodness my new project is nearly done,
Continuing my quest to use up hand spun stash, I've started on a kitty toy for Scipio. Using some not so fine alpaca yarn. I like to think him having his own wooly toys will keep him away from my wooly stash, but I know better. Right now, Scipio seems to be going through a "what shall I do to vex her now?" phase. For both his sake and mine, as well as the appearance of my furniture, I hope he outgrows it soon.
