Snow, Dogs, Sick and more SNOW...

Greetings from sickville and Happy Yappy Thursday. Teutul's been keeping an eye on all the snow...

As mentioned a few posts back, for those of you who might not have been following Operation Bring Charlie Home, he is Home! There is a great video from CNN here - Operation Baghdad Pups that is a must watch and so perfect for a Dogs on Thursday post. Enjoy! Sophie was very intrigued by the video and thinks all doggies need to find a loving home (and a nice blankie wouldn't hurt)...

So yes, I'm still sick. I'm no where near as bad as I was over the weekend (feeling like my ass was kicked by a mac truck), but I'm still sinusy and coughing.... and tired. I've been really worn out and going to bed quite early. As a result, no knitting has taken place in over a week! Zeus thinks Mommy should just stay home from work and hang out on the couch...

I had taken last Friday off to venture West with Joanne. We had great plans to hit the Peterboro Basket tent sale, stop by her friend's mill for a tour and check out a yarn shop in Keene. Sadly, we didn't make it to any of those stops thanks to the daily dumping of crappy white stuff snow and me being sick. Instead we opted for a short trip to Hub Mills, which turned out to be not so much on the short side. I think we left Joanne's around 10:00 am and I didn't get home until almost 5:00 pm. The driving was slow going with the snow, plus we had a little unexpected detour, then we stopped for dog food and I stopped to buy out CVS' cough medicine aisle on the way home. Despite being sick, it was fun! We both scored some good deals at Hub - Joanne found some beautiful chunky yarn for her vest (which I wouldn't doubt is done by now), among other things. I found yarn for a felted bag (gift for a friend), knitted bunny (birthday gift), socks and more. Of course, our timing was slighly off as they were starting their winter sale on Tuesday - 20% off all yarn and sample sweaters! Oh well... better luck hitting the sale next time, right?

So back to that wretched white stuff that just won't end. Just what the hell is it with all the snow this winter??!! Neverending is beginning to sound like an understatement, as it seems to fall on a daily basis lately. I never even saw snow in the forcast for yesterday, yet we got another 4" or so overnight. Enough to have to snowblow the driveway and clean off the cars before work... but the assanine town/state decided they didn't need to plow, so the roads were a sloshy mess this morning. Oh the joys of New England winters!
Lola has smartly settled in for a long winter's nap once again...

Enjoy the rest of your day... and oh yea, we're supposed to get hit with another storm tomorrow night. They're saying "about 3 - 7 inches, but we really don't know yet..." Oh the joys... but at least I think I finally got a half way decent shot with Miss Sophie...

I like the picture of Lola all curled up for a cozy nap. My Trinket does that too, sometimes looks like there is no beginning or end :-) Bucky is too chubby to curl up.

Interesting video about the Bagdad Pups. Thanks for including it for us to see and I hope you feel better.

Love your pups, and all the photos "behind them." How can you say no to Zeus the snuggle bunny?!

I hope you are well stocked with hot cocoa and fuzzy slippers. Maybe tonight we should all light a candle, roast a marshmallow over it, and pretend we're camping.

Love the noble pix of your doggies. Hope you are resting and will soon be feeling much better!

Elise says Lola has the right idea being all cured up cozy in this yucky weather.
I love all the pictures of the dogs today so very cute.
I hope you feel better soon!
This bug is going around everywhere!

I hope the puppers are taking good care of you. Last week I would have had to die to get well! I was WELL beyond dead or at least felt like it!

I hope you feel better soon.

I hope you're feeling better now and back to knitting really soon. It's time for this winter to be over! We're really close to our record snowfall here on the prairie. We've had 2 days in the 50's now and I still have some small snow drifts that haven't melted!
