The dogs have serious cabin fever. They want to come back in if we let them out, and then they turn right around and stand at the door, begging to go out. We're fortunate to have received minimal precip from all these El Nino storms that are pummeling California. They just don't push up and over the Sierras, which is why we live in the Rain Shadow.
We were thrilled to see the sun today. The wind has been teriffic, causing the power to go out seven times yesterday. The important thing is that it came back on. We are Project Runway fans and were stunned when we lost power mid-way through the show. Ian found another time and has it on Tivo for us tonight.
The coyotes are abundant and vocal these days. It drives the two herding dogs crazy. For the bird dog, as you can see, it's a big ho hum. Buster and Eddie bark their lungs out. They make us crazy. Yesterday Ian and I watched three coyotes playing at the bottom of our property. They were where I haven't been in years. It's hard to get down there and I have no reason to.
I went upstairs this morning to see if I could weave the warp. I couldn't. I was going to cut it off but Ian looked at it and said, you can always cut it off. Is there anything else you can do? I walked away, did some laundry, made the bed and realized that, yes. I could try but it would be horrible. It was. I pulled the warp completely to the front into a tangled heap, clamped the raddle back on, re-spread the out-of-order warp and then slowly wound it back on, detangling every couple of feet. I'm too embarrassed to tell you how long I spent on it. But I will be able to put the reed on tomorrow and get to serious woik.
Granddaughter Alexia has a new celebratory word. Hah-lay-YOU-lah! I think that just about sums it up.
