Another Fire in the Pit!

Hello All,

Wow!  Yesterday was really, really warm.  Like major Spring-Almost-Summer warm!  Weird.  Today it is grey again and rain is forecast today, tomorrow, Saturday & well as falling temps.  It is February after all.

Colin came over yesterday for dinner instead of tonight since the forecast was better.  I made a new-to-me shrimp recipe but it was pretty meh...not one I will make again.  We were afraid we might get rained out, but the moisture held off until later, so we had a little fire.  I had gotten Fletch some of those pinecones you can throw in fires for pretty colors:

It was hard to capture, but you can see some of the green in the pic above.  There were also brilliant blues.

Colin snapped this one of me and Fletch:

No knitting last night, but I am planning to work on the misbehaving mitt at lunch today.

Yesterday I did (finally) finish "The Woman Who Smashed Codes" during lunch.  Such a good book and I feel as though my reading mojo is back now.  I started This Book which is light reading - sort of a chick-lit type and so far it is ok...I'm only about 20% into it and feel like it may bore me at some point, but for now it is ok.  Waiting in the wings is Glass Houses which I am anxious to read (the latest Inspector Gamache book).

That's it from me on this rainy Thursday.  Hope you are all having a great week!
