    Happy March everyone! All the water from the rains and melting snow have made their way to the low country. We're having to alter our commutes since we have roads that look like this. We're fine but some people's homes are affected.

    Oh, wow. That looks bad. We used to live in a flood zone. Our home got flooded and what a mess that was. Another time I woke up and was gazing out the back window, looking at the beautiful sunny day after a night of rain. I noticed a bunch of bark on our back patio, and it took me a minute or two to figure out how it got there. It had flooded and then receded during the night. So my husband went looking for the sheep we had. They did not survive. I felt so bad. I am thankful we don't have to worry about that where we are currently living!

    I'm finishing up with tax stuff today. I'll be so glad when that's done.

      Yes, it was. It was a long time ago, maybe 25 years ago or longer. We hadn't had them for very long, and I was still learning how to take care of sheep, reading books on it. So the sad event ended my sheep adventures.

      I'm so glad all your animals made it through the freezing weather. I hope the blanket training goes well!

      KnitsWithHorses - I think Rhiannon is telling you she wants a hand knit horse sweater.

    Happy March everyone.
    Hope everyone is well out there.

    FreedomLover your post reminded me to get out and walk to our river. It's such a lovely little area to walk in.

    I will have to walk a different route for a while. The coyotes have decided to make their dens in our area again. It's kinda silly because there is a boat ramp and several well used walking trails. They don't seem to mind us being there. (by us I mean lots of people, dogs, and vehicles) In fact...my son once had coyotes sneak up on him as he was fishing. He thinks they were trying to sneak up and steal his fish.

        hereami so far no reaction, but do seem a bit more tired.

        I read on my NOOK and knit at the same time. I have always been a fast reader. Not a speed reader, I read every word, but very fast. I will admit the bible reading does go more slowly, especially the commentaries. I am also retired and not going much of anywhere, except to visit my daughter's family who lives 45 min north. Have not seen Son in months and second daughter in over a year.

        DH says that getting our shots was the first "date" we've had in 12 months!!

        Lol...I know what you mean. My hubby and I have been counting trips to the store to buy milk and eggs as 'dates'.

        I can craft and listen to audio books and watch movies. However, I am ridiculously slow at knitting and reading. So slow it frustrated me and I stopped trying.

        hereami I admit I need to do fairly simple things while I read, but I've been making a lot of basic hats and the sweaters I've been making for myself are mainly stockinette, so it works fairly well.

      I’ve been incredibly absent. Happy March everyone! I finished a thing. Toddler sized in uptown worsted. 66 stitches on a 4.5mm circular needle

        That's your first knit hat? It looks really great! Way better than my first few hats looked, that's for sure. Lol

      With pi being approximately 3.14, annual pi day is March 14th. Here are a few thoughts on celebrating and exploring the unique number, pi:

      1- mash-up math -
      https://www.mashupmath.com/blog/tag/Pi+Day+2021

      2- New York Museum of Math -
      https://momath.org/pi-day-2021/

      3- Wikipedia -
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi

      4- The PI Shawl (circle shawl) by Elizabeth Zimmerman is the July pattern in her Knitter's Almanac -
      https://store.doverpublications.com/0486241785.html
      and the Knitter's Almanac, Commemorative Edition -
      https://store.doverpublications.com/0486479129.html

      5- PI Shawl formula courtesy of Craftsy -
      https://www.craftsy.com/post/pi-shawl-patterns

      6 - Easy half-pi shawl (half circle shawl), courtesy of The Knitting Circle -
      https://www.theknittingcircle.com/po...awl-knitting

      7- pi day history -
      https://www.piday.org/

      8- Many people choose to share a pie on pi day.
      For a 12 inch diameter pizza pie, the circumference is approximately 37.68 inches.
      To cut the pizza into 12 equal servings, each slice would have about 3.14 inches of the crust edge.
      A "pi" size piece of pie!
      For an 8 inch diameter dessert pie, the circumference is approximately 25.12 inches.
      To cut the pie into eight equal servings, each slice would have about 3.14 inches of the crust edge.
      A "pi" size piece of pie!

      Plan now to enjoy making a special memory on pi day.

        Years ago we knew a young man who was a math savant. He could recite the digits of pi until people just wandered off..... Amazing😊

        Hellokitten - yes, I had a high school friend like that... and I agree: amazing.
        That is, amazzz-ZZ-zz-ZZZ-zing.
        zzz-ZZ-zz-ZZZ-z!
        (snoring, boring)
        3.14159 is more than precise enough for me... and my real life provides enough challenges, I do not need to seek out challenges such as memorizing pi to many, many digits!

      I am at my Daughter's watching the grands. My daughter went into labor yesterday and had a baby boy yesterday morning. I got here yesterday morning also. The oldest grand is almost 15 so watched her siblings from 2 am until I got there about 9. My daughter didn't tell me she was in the hospital until 6:30 am. She should be home sometime today.

        Char Yes she made it with much time to spare. They told her to ignore the instructions that tell you to wait until contractions are 5 min apart and come in right away. So she went in at about 3 am and Joseph Patrick was born about 9:30 am.
