Nasty Wet Day. Carpets. Knit a Cap for a Newborn.

It has been chilly, raining and gloomy all day. Definitely not a day to do anything in the cold workshop. Bobcat has been huddled up next to radiator, then she would go look out of a window, and back to the radiator again.

Ray had some time this morning, so we attacked my carpet. It had gained some spots, so I sprayed them again. I spray them when I first see them, anyway. He got the new-to-me upright Hoover carpet cleaner down from the attic, and we gave it it's first real trial run. He had given it a quick try when I first bought it, as if it hadn't sprayed or sucked right, I could have returned it. As I still don't have a new vacuum, we first used the Hoover Commercial Upright that is usually kept in the workshop, as it has the most suction. The Hoover Carpet Cleaner did a good job, all the spots came up. Good, now they won't bug me, anymore, and I won't have to look at them when I get back from Kerrville, if I ever get there.
Mirage supposed to be out of transmission shop today, but still has to have stuff done to it.

This is an article that is on the Child Health part of the Daily Clicks:
""The Campaign to Save the Lives of Children Under Five. Did you know that 60% of newborn deaths can be prevented? It just takes a simple package of basic health measures provided to mothers and babies. Keeping a newborn warm is one of the simple steps for saving lives. That's where a cap comes in. Knit One, Save One is part of Survive to 5, Save the Children's commitment to saving the lives of babies and children.

I wish I had time to start knitting or sewing a cap, today.
