Chilly weather chuckle
I know many of you are either buried in snow, braving sub zero temps or windchills, or are just plain freezing. It is 30 degrees here and my hands are freezing this morning. I can't knit when my hands are cold because my joints swell and get stiff. I let my little yorkie out and went out to the garage to get a tiny space heater we had for emergencies. I came back in and plugged it in and got my hands warmed back up, but I guess Fortune was cold too,! I guess even with fur it is not guarantee you will stay warm! :D

He's already decided he likes the sofa pillows more. My computer is in the kitchen so the heater is only about 6 feet away. I am going back to the recliner and knit in a minute anyway and I turn it off when I walk out of visual range, but thanks for caring.

Oh I hope you didn't think I meant you weren't careful! It's just a mom reflex to say stuff like that I guess. I know you will be careful of your furbaby.

Oh, he looks chilly, poor guy! It is freezing here. Monday it was -9 and on my walk to school/work my eye moisture kept creeping up on my lashes and freezing and I kept having to wipe ice chunks off my lashes every few minutes.

My bunny likes to stay warm, too:
