A Great Day

I have a very serious request from my east coast friends, please take your freezing weather back. Last night was our first hard freeze of the winter. Yes, we do get hard freezes in Tucson.  We have at least 2 more days with lows in the 20's and highs in the 50's. It is a little, ok a lot too cold for me. I know it is still December, but I am ready for spring and summer. Not to be picky thought I would like it between 80 and 110f.  The only positive I can think about for the cold, at least I get to show off my knitting for a month or 2 a year.  

Every thing that John and I could move out of the living room has been moved. Tomorrow we are in for round 2 of carpet cleaning.  We are also cleaning the tile and grout at the back of the house, then having it sealed.  I took the time to do another round of deep cleaning.  The living room as not been so empty since the kids used it for a playroom oh,so last century.  

On a really high note, we picked up the van from the auto body shop today.  John and I are so happy.  Eric does not seem to care one way or the other as long as he gets to hang out with his friends.  I also went to Grandmas Spinning Wheel to wind my yarn for the "Deadwood Cowl" by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark, with Dream in Color yarn.  Now it is time kick back and to knit.
