 Once again, it is Friday, and time for fav things.

This sweater which I made for my darling daughter Kelly is a tweedy brown wool.  I love it and am sure she will love it too!

It's a surprise for her.  She doesn't
check the blog much in the winter
as I haven't done much here.

I am posting the close up as it is so lovely in person, as most things are.  That touch feely thing, right?

I am now also knitting my final project of the Florida season which is a sweater for Jeremy, the
guy at the Florida winter training 
camp.  Tough life he has, fun in the
sun doing what he loves to do best.

This is our bedroom at the moment.  Not too shabby.  We are enjoying glorious sunshine in the low 80s which my sweetie is moaning about...It's so hot is his daily's gonna be a hot one!  Well what do you expect....Sunshine and more sun

Our sweet dog has acquired an ear infection!  We were at the vet's a couple of days ago and he is in full recovery mode.

Apparently, westies and some such dogs are susceptible to this because of the humid weather.  Well, he is on the mend now, with me having to pounce on him when I must do the dirty deed of cleaning the ears etc.  He is smart and hides under the bed to keep away from me.

Our days are winding down for sure.  Our food stuffs are dwindling and we will be eating out for a while it seems once we leave here till we find another abode.

OK, another ad.  I lie a bit, but have been saving them.
Free!  Yorkshire Terrier....the little bastard bites!   This was a true one!

 Our winter diggs are owned by an artist.  She comes to the Villas each winter for a few days with her  other artist friends.

They paint, they walk the beach and at times do lovely works of art which hang in the rooms of the villas.

This year, this playful creation was
done for those of us brave enough
to put our pusses in the hole and
say "cheese".  I was the first.

Also the last pot luck dinner was had with the gang bringing their best left over dishes.  We were there to feast and watch the sun go down.  It does get chilly in the early evening glow.  

Next year more "new from here" gang will have grown.  We will  be with the last of the gang to depart for the north.

Even the pelicans have decided to leave the beach for the spring break crazies who come to the pan handle.

The weather has been mild in Ontario, in the mid 50s in most places including, yep, even our little piece (peace too) of heaven on the lake.
We are keeping our fingers crossed hoping to be back by April 20th. The ice should be gone by then.

I have new quilts to sew, and so little time to do it all. My fingers will need to remember 1/4" sewing all over again.

I have finished a sweater for my girl, and will post it soon.  I do have one more to do, but my arm has been bothering me a bit.  Probably from bending it so as to hold up my head!  Really....when I am on the computer I do that and it is now sore.....don't laugh, I must learn to hold up my head by my neck!

Local paper add....must sell washer and dryer....have joined nudist colony.
