Down the street on a snowy morning.

Still making slippers. I have another pair on the needles, these ones will be mine.

A pair of fingerless mitts for Grilltech.

How much snow did we get last night? The roof of the pickup was clear.

List Day

  • A glance at the bar this morning, I'll say there was seven cars

  • I didn't get an actual count because I was dealing with freezing rain.  I figured concentrating on driving was a smart idea

  • It's bad out there, I84 is shut down

  • The number of voice messages is pretty high

  • Yip, it's winter.  My dry, itchy skin has started

  • List Day

    • I counted five cars at the bar this morning
    • It was a blistery 2 degrees out there, it might even warm up to the mid-teens today
    • Convert showed up for 10 minutes today, then went home
    • I practiced a little last night, sure it was a stance. But I consider that a win
    • The sky started getting light at 0740, sure the sun doesn't come up until around 0830, it's another win
    • Perky and I went digging though the stash last night.  I need to get that straightened out a bit
    • I've been wearing my bright blue mitts, and two people have asked how I broke my arm
    • All the trees have a thick layer of frost on them, they're very pretty
    • There was a pretty massive SNAFU with our paychecks, mine was straightened out, but Grilltech's hasn't been
    • Dinner with my dad next Friday night
    • Fighting the urge to go get another doughnut
    • Forgot to charge my headphones, so I'm using my old ones
    • Perky told me last night she felted her purple sweater
    • Totally surprised he wasn't made into a PHB
    • Went to the gym today, the pool was nice


    • Found a twenty in the purse I hadn't used in over two months
    • The blinkers started working - for a couple of days we was getting n-o-t-h-i-n-g - after adding windshield fluid 
    • Don't get it, don't care why, just happy they're working
    • I've got great friends who give me suggestions of how to fix my sweater!

    I'm forgetting stuff...

    I made chicken stock this weekend, so chicken soup had to follow. I've been thinking about cornbread, so our side dish was jalapeno cheddar cornbread. It turned out really good.

    We've got plenty of snow. It's been cold enough, that it's sticking around. I've seen a couple of robins, huddled down against the freezing wind. I thought they didn't come back until mid February, but I was wrong. Speaking of birds, Fran - the Mighty Huntress - caught a finch. Grilltech says, if I wouldn't bait them, she wouldn’t be able to catch them.

    Today after work we've got eye exams. I know I'm starting to get old. I have to take off my glasses to see up close. When working with size 1 needles, I pull the glasses down to the end of my nose and look over them. If I want to see the TV, I've got to look through them. I don't know if I'm to the point of needing bi-focal yet, but I will be getting new lenses.

    We started watching Lost Girl last night. Made it through the first three episodes. It really reminds me of Harlequin Romance novel and TV doesn't really communicate a lot of the subtext. So, we're still on the fence about it.

    My sweater is finished. I've worn it a couple of times. LOVE IT! The down side? The buttons are too small. I have the option of getting larger sized buttons that aren't as awesome or leaving them. I'm going with the latter, those buttons are totally awesome with the sweater.
