We will not mention The Shawl today; after knitting until midnight whilst watching The Sword of Lancelot (which was really good), I am still 62 stitches from done. The best I can figure, another hour should do it. But, I am developing an unhealthy obsession with The Shawl, so I am not going to talk about it. Really.
So, to distract myself, the Airman and I created these:
As we were baking, he commented, "You know, Mum, working with explosives and baking are a lot alike. You have to follow the receipt or it all goes to slaw in a hurry." I needed to hear that, by the way. As you know, I try really hard to not think about what he does every day.
Today we are going to play with our new Christmas toy -- the wood splitter. While the Hardy is extremely effective, this old house takes a lot of wood to keep warm. Thoreau was certainly correct when he said that wood was the fuel that warmed one twice.
