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.

In theory (posted by Lani)

I'm going to Florida tomorrow. I say "in theory" because it just stopped snowing for a bit and I looked out the window. Um ... I know I parked the car out there last night ... oh.
Well, pooh. That's gonna take a little bit of shoveling. The wind has been blowing every which way, so the snow is pretty much drifted up like that all around the car. Whoopie. And we're supposed to get more snow this afternoon and this evening. Whoopie, again. Also Northwest, while they assure me that yes my flight is definitely on schedule for tomorrow, not only won't let me check in online but won't even let me sign up for email notification of flight status. Maybe I'm just a conspiracy theorist, but I have my doubts about this particular flight right now. Wish me luck.

Your orchids are GORGEOUS. I wish I could have orchids, but instead I have cats (see: previous post re black cat eating flowers). I haven't yet figured out a place I could put orchids that wouldn't be cat-accessible. Take lots of pictures, I'll just live vicariously.

Your knitting is also gorgeous and makes me jealous. I swear, I WILL find more time to knit. God knows I love the socks you gave me, and the ones I made myself, and the pair that I'm done with but too lazy to kitchener the toes on (FINE, I'll do it today then), and God also knows that I have some gorgeous sock yarn with which to make more socks ... I'm going to set my sights at a pair of socks per month for the rest of the year. That should fill my sock drawer nicely, and it's not an unreasonable goal; socks really do go quickly if you sit down and just do them (obviously that sitting-down-and-just-doing part is my failing).

Let's see, what else. Ann and Bud took my Baby-In-The-Snow picture and had it printed on canvas for us ... it is spectacular! I wanted to hang it in the front hall but Steve wants it where he can see it, so we hung it in the dungeon -- er, the family room. Now I'm wanting to take more pictures of our local flora and fauna to accompany it ... and speaking of that, guess what we have in the area? We have moose! Meese? Mooses? ;) Yeah. Those big hairy fellows have settled in just west of the ridge we live on, down in the valley. I'm hoping to get some good shots of them at some point, preferably using the zoom on my camera since they don't have a reputation of being very sociable. Pretty cool.
