Thursday Hodgepodge

Remember that super soft and yummy Merino/Silk/Cashmere yarn I was telling you about? Well, I finally was able to dye some of it. I'll give you a sneak preview of some of it before we make our official annoucement about it's existance.




I know - you can't really see the colors but trust me - this yarn takes dye BEAUTIFULLY! The colors are gorgeous. I can't wait to get them all skeined up and photographed.

We went for a little dinner at Provino's a couple of weeks ago and I failed to share some of the pictures. Here's our desserts:

Panacotta


Cannoli

Spumoni


And us


Yesterday, my mom left a comment on the blog stating that she was sick of snakes. Here's my mom now.



So, of course, when your mother tells you not to do something, what is the first thing you want to do? RIGHT! More snake pictures!!! We saw this guy on our walk one morning last week. I believe this is another black rat snake. We like having these guys around!

My grandmother taught me to respect what she referred to as "garden snakes" because they were great for pest control and generally quite gentle.

I know the rat snakes are good to have around, but they still give me the heebies!

I've always dreamed of living in the mountains someday when the kids are up, grown, and gone off to college. However, your plethora of snakes is beginning to make me think I might be a "city girl" afterall.

Did you all eat any real food or just dessert?

Great photos! Colorful yarn, fancy desserts, noodles dangling from forks mid-air, and snakes. You have a very interesting selection of subjects and wove (knit!)them nicely into a cohesive posting.
