Send paddles!


Rumor has it the sun may shine again sometime on Friday. I'll believe it when I see it. In the meantime, I'm considering the need for creating a knitting pattern that fits webbed feet. I may be on to something.

Fall rains just starting here. I could probably use that pattern, too :)

I hope the sun comes out tomorrow for you. We've had sun and not much rain thankfully but it's so cold, I think the wind's coming from flippin' Siberia! I've got my gloves and scarves out already.

We've had three days of rain here & I'm already quite bored with it. Sigh.

BTW - you had recommended Keen shoes to me a while back. I bought some - they're kind of on the ugly side, but they're PERFECT to wear when it rains - & they look fine for work. So thanks! You're my new fashion consultant :)

Dana, Keens ARE kind of ugly, but they're so comfortable, and if you didn't get a leather or nubuck finish, you can hose them down when they get muddy. They're exceptionally good for traction in mud and snow. Did I mention they last forever?

Rudee said...

Winifred, I have the wool out, too.

Gail said...

Wow, I hope for rain. Stay dry.

Denise said...

I'm. Doing this on my new phone while on break. Wishing I could send sun or a boat.

Hi Rudee,

I'm Lori, I linked here...oh, goodness, how did I link here? LOL! I was drawn in by the radar image of Michigan, and then enjoyed some other "magnets"...I'm from MI, born at Beaumont Hospital (Royal Oak) and raised in Oakland County...I now live in the mega-suburbs of Chicago, where I have raised my 2 sons, one of whom is well on his way to his dream career of raising...SHEEP! I'm also a nurse (happily retired, though constantly called upon by friends for medical advice and suture removal and handling of emergencies at camp, etc. etc. etc., it never ends!), and I have recently re-entered the world of knitting, which I left after finishing my 3rd Lopi-wool sweater in college :-)

So there...can ya' see why I was drawn in here, LOL! Anyway, I hope you are almost out of the soupy weather, we had some wicked wind here, but not too much rain.

Enjoyed visiting here!

We've passed our record for rain by about 20". Someone came into the gallery and told me how green it was in our Valley. "Yes," I replied. "We call it mold."

Denise said...

Yay, it worked. It's only taken me two days of breaks to bring up a page I wanted.

I would like to know more about the Keens. I need really comfortable shoes for the days I have to make those long walks in little time.

I wish I could send you some sunshine!

As for Keens, I'm devoted to them. Comfortable in all seasons, and perfect for taking the dogs out in wet grass, wading in creeks, etc. They will take more abuse than I can give them. And they are NOT either ugly!

and here we are in a amonth-long drought. which, frankly, i hope continues until december. i do NOT want snow.

laurie said...

ps my keens don't last forever--i keep wearing out the tread because i walk so much. i buy a pair every year. they are wonderful wonderful wonderful.

Sandy said...

wow, lots of rain for you. We are dry as can be and still warm to hot.

Stay dry!

Forgot what I was going to say. Hi.

Finding Pam said...

I wish we had some of that rain. We are so far behind in our rain total for the last two years.

Loved the picture of Leo in the previous post. He is too cute.

Brenda said...

We had a little last week. Finally!
Very dry hot summer left us not much of a color show for fall.
