Interesting times

On day Pope Benedict resigns, lightning strikes St Peter's:
Lightning strikes St Peter's dome at the Vatican on February 11, 2013. Pope Benedict XVI announced today he will resign as leader of the world's 1.1 billion Catholics on February 28 because his age prevented him from carrying out his duties -- an unprecedented move in the modern history of the Catholic Church.


and then on Friday we all have to duck as an asteroid approaches really close to earth.

Well we survived the 21st of December so hopefully this too will be ok.

February hey hey

So hey hey it is February. 8% of the year done and only 6 weeks until autumn. The temperatures have been horrid with two fans needed to be able to sleep under the thinnest of quilts. Neither of the cats have joined us for a snuggle at all in the past month, preferring rather to meander in at 4:30 in the morning and clean their nails on the bottom of the bed normally eliciting communication of the loud kind.

As at the 1st of February this was my counter. I quite like the number. 

The blocks for centre of my dear Jane are complete and I have made 4 of the triangles which brings me to 77%. I have bought solids to do the in-between triangles. I had originally thought of getting loud flower prints, but, when I was in the fabric store I couldn't find any that were suitable.

Hope that we all survive the end of summer and the end of winter as in both cases Mother Nature seems to want to prove a point before moving on. Already it is dark in the mornings when I trundle through to the kitchen to make tea.

Have a good one!
