There was light snow. Tom played with his new snowblower.
So far, I’ve been knitting a sweater that has only gotten smaller. I started it and finished the body in November. I spent weeks trying to get the first sleeve to cooperate and then I finally frogged the whole thing.
Now I have restarted the Funky Grandpa sweater, confident that it will be done by June.
Don’t mock me.
We’ve had some C O L D days. Yes, it’s Winter but we’ve never had it so cold that our heating unit couldn’t keep up. It never got above 63 degrees, inside (57 in the bedroom). We learned to adapt.
The snow wasn’t without it’s beautiful parts.
This was beautiful until the town plowed our driveway in and I promptly got stuck on the “hump”, while trying to drive out. My car was halfway in the street for 40 minutes, as I tried to dig myself out…get into car and rock it back and forth…lather, rinse, repeat. A town worker drove by (lucky me) right before a friend of Tom’s came to help free me.
And when the temperature went from -5 degrees to the low 40’s along with rain, it was transformed again.
And it’s only the 15th…
You may wonder why I still haven’t posted pix of my Stitches haul or the goings on in my garden.
Soon you’ll be able to add “Why haven’t you posted any photographs from Vegas?”.
I will say this…
Today while pre-packing,
Don’t tell me that you don’t pre-pack. If you try, I won’t believe you. I found a bag in my suitcase. It turned out to be 4 skeins of yarn. Four MORE skeins of yarn than I’d previously unpacked and stuffed into a large box.
Unless I’ve found a way for yarn to spontaneously appear, I really do need a good assistant.
If it’s a magic suitcase, I hope it works the same for slot machine winnings.
I also found a Panera, orange-iced scone, from the Stitches trip. It was still in the Panera bag and – thank heavens – I had put it into a freezer Ziploc bag. The bag was green and that’s all I’m gonna say about that.
