a stranger in our midst

Austin started 'alert' barking the other evening. It seems he noticed the woman's picture on this box that I set on the crate after getting groceries. Apparently she is a very scary woman and all who live here should be aware that she is a threat. It's nice to know that I have a watchdog to protect me from 2-dimensional demons.

The box housed a goLite and was an impulse purchase. Costco had a sale. The light is supposed to help stimulate your energy when the number of daylight hours dwindles. I've suspected for years that I have a mild version of Seasonal Affective Disorder so I thought it would be worth a try. I'll have to let you know how it's working after giving it a few days.

I have received several blog comments about dyeing yarn, some asking for more information and some offering advice. Thank you for the interest and I'll post a more detailed description of what techniques and supplies I use when I have more time. Until then you can see some pics of my set-up here.

That's too funny! Don't you feel safe now? My Cocker Spaniel does that. She always notices when something is out of place.

Dear Susan,

I am feeling reassured to know that you are so well safe-guarded.
At this household our air space is secure. The Border Coller barks as Canada Geese chevrons fly-honk by and also barks at the jet trails (that amazes me).
She also growls and barks at her reflection in the living window at night.
Still, in all, I am thrilled that she is guarding our space.
