And it's looking like it might even be a white Christmas.
That means working from home for me (otherwise, it's at least two hours to get to work) and that means extra knitting time because I don't have to commute. (Pics of what I'm working on to follow in the next few days.)
It also means I get to keep an eye on the backyard. The sparrow mafia has been back and forth to the feeder, but we also had a new visitor
He wasn't shy, but definitely cautious. It took him a good 15 minutes to move from the fence to the feeder...
Speaking of cat entertainment... someone else decided that since I'm home, I should be opening the door every five minutes. The first time I went out, he put on paw in the snow on the back step and immediately went back inside. I shoveled off the back patio, but he refused to come out and left for a three-hour nap.
Refreshed, he came back down to howl for the outdoors again, so I obliged.
Now it's far too cold to leave the door open all afternoon while he surveys the yard... so I did what any good cat-mom would do...
But he hasn't bugged me to go back out since....
