Snow Shoes – Arizona Style

Yes, the white stuff is real snow!

Snow Shoes, Arizona Style :)

For Valentine Day weekend, we went up north and stayed in a lovely Bed and Breakfast in Williams, AZ . On Saturday morning, it snowed so we went to check out the Grand Canyon to see how it looks in white:

Unlike the lady above, we were quite cold:

And at long last had a chance to put some of my knitting creations to good use. Beside those you can see in the photo above, some others were hidden inside our shoes:

The day was clear and sunny but quite cold and the icicles will prove it was not my Arizonan exaggeration:

And if you are wondering about my meshushim: after about a week of knitting meshushim all the time, even I had to admit there is no way I can knit 400 or even 200 of them before March 27, so I put it aside and since then I am trying to knit a shawl for my mother’s 80 birthday, I am not happy with anything I knit, but I keep trying!

December in Arizona

When I walked into our bedroom yesterday afternoon I gasped and summoned the cameraman:Bautiful Arizona Sky in Sunset

After awhile, I went into the bedroom again and the same thing happened, only louder this time:

And we had another visitor:

only when he is in the brown bag though

Did Saki bring him or did he come by himself, that was the big question!
And I thought he was cute only after he was inside the brown bag or actually only when I opened this photo!

I need to go sew the vest that needs to get to Toronto before the holidays. Did I ever admitted that I hate sewing, anything and everything? I guess this is why it was so important to blog all of a sudden,,,,

My issues with sewing all stem from an old mean teacher, Mrs. Kaplan, she used to yell at me that my stitches are crooked and made me rip them off and sew again and again and again,,,,

Oy Oy Oy,,,

In the past I used to bribe my sister, I would knit her a sweater or whatever she wants if she will sew mine and hers too,,, it worked quite well, most of the time but now she is in Israel and I am here and Sam is in college (as if the wicked one would have agreed to sew it for me, but a woman can dream, right?)

Poor poor me,,,

OK, OK,,, I am going,,,,,

McCain Supporters Try to Steal HOPE

Last night we saw this on TV, as we watched much too much news these days*, I am not sure on which station we saw it first:

These things really make me angry and sad too!

Why can’t we respect each other views?
Why if I am a liberal (god forbid) I don’t love America? and I am a danger to some people?

Oh and we also learned last night that the Arizona Secretary of State decided to enforce a very strict code dress in the voting places this year and insturcted the poll workers accordingly, I only wonder why she does not bother to inform the public about it!

So, if you are in Arizona, do not wear any election shirt or pin if you want to vote!

* When I was young, my father used to have the radio on at all times and every half hour when the news were on, we couldn’t talk to him, he had to know what is going on ALL the time – I never thought I will be like that, ever!
