I have a hard time keeping up with the two blogs, so am going to close this one down.  Originally I was going to put up patterns on one and chat on the other, and somehow I could never decide which one! Hah!

So, if you don't mind a lot...I hope...and as I am not keeping this up anyway...I will be only posting on the ByHook blog from now on.  I think that will help me keep up with actual information on patterns and stitches and "things" in general.

Perhaps with a little effort I can be more informative!

Ahhhhhh......the joys of winter sports!

Like shoveling the walkway!

This was the 3rd or fourth time I shoveled yesterday....and now, this morning, it needs it again.  I'm not going to do it until I know the snow is stopping for a day or so.

I don't have it anywhere as bad as people in other areas of the country. Not as good as San Diego or Scottsdale, either!  It is all relative as to what you are used to living in and around.

Snow was once fun....when I had someone to share it with. Now it just seems like work. Bad attitude. 
Along with the snow came yet another flood in the basement. Silly me...closed off some vents and shut a door to a room that had no independent heat...not thinking.  The water pipe from the yard burst.

More new carpet. More new baseboards.  This group of disaster cleanup people, however, are fast and efficient. Came recommended by the insurance company. Instead of it taking six weeks it is taking one week. For that I am ever so thankful!

Happy New Year everyone!
