cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Happy Birthday To You! (posted by Lani)


Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday, dear sister ...
Happy Birthday to you!

Happy happy, Annie; hope you're having a wonderful day. I'm out here in snowy Colorado, and who the HELL told anybody it could snow out here while I'm househunting is something I'd seriously like to know. Spent hours and hours looking at house after house after house today and found some nice ones and some that were kinda meh and one weird one and two that we opened the front door, looked at each other, closed the front door, and that was the end of that. We have two more houses to look at tomorrow, and then we have some decisions to make. What's that? Pictures? Why, of course I took pictures! Here, take a look at some of them.

Here you have the living room of one house. Yes, this is the living room. Yes, I'm sure.
Ye Olde West(e)

Here you have one seriously nice deck and hot tub.
What a view from your hottub

Yes, I took pictures of bathrooms. This one had cool sinks, although I wonder how practical they are.
Cool Bathroom!

Here is Misty. Misty is possibly the world's luckiest cat. This is Misty's loft. That's right, Misty's loft. She has an assortment of beds (one beneath each window), a chair of her very own (her owner says he used to get to sit in it, but not anymore), her food and water dishes here out of doggie reach, and to the right (couldn't get it into this picture) a private spot for her litterbox and a kitty tree under a skylight. Misty is a Lucky Cat.
Lucky Cat

This is a one-lane road, and it's a narrow one. Slope up on one side, steep slope down on the other. Look ahead of us. See that van? He's coming up. We're going down. This picture was taken after we backed up the slope from where the van is, to allow him to come up and pull into that drive on the right. Backing up this hill Was Not Fun. The house at the top of this hill lost major points.

And finally, I leave you with pictures of the beauty that is Colorado. These are just random pictures, taken out of the car window as we drove around househunting.

It's awfully pretty here, even if it is kinda cold.

LaniW- (I found you through ravelry.. and left this message there as well)

I am in the middle of a project using knitpicks yarn. This yarn was gifted to me 3 yrs ago and I just started working on a sweater with it. I am at the half way mark when I realized the pattern uses 100g balls and I am using 50g balls and am SHORT by about 2 balls of yarn. I saw your knitpicks wool of the andes color fern is the EXACT same dyelot as mine. I know this is really presumptious, but I was wondering if I could trade you 2 balls of anything you want.. noro, koigu, even replacing your knitpicks fern if you like.. just a different dyelot for the dyelot you have??

I really appreciate this. I know it is a pain to have someone look into your stash and just ask.. but I would really love to finish this sweater. What do you think??

I would be over the moon if you could help me. Thanks so much for letting me bug you.
Anj in philly.

PS. unsure how often you are on ravelry I am going to send a copy of this to your link on your blog. I guess I am really just desperate at this point.
