Day 9

Seriously? The weather reports all said 40 and rain today. Liars.

Merry Christmas

A white Christmas is a rare thing for the Seattle area.

Deep Peace Of Winter

That's 7 inches of snow and it's still coming down. We did have some wind last night, but not enough to be a problem. Mostly it left a bunch of tree bits on top of the snow. We've got another inch so far today so we are back to pretty snow.

At this hectic time of year I hope everyone is able to connect in some way with the deep peace of winter.

Solstice Blessings!

Snow day!

It may not look like much here, but I'm home for the day. I've got
hot chocolate, knitting and a large DVD collection. I think I'm set!

This is what walking in a winter wonderland looked like last night.

Dear America,

Thank you!

That is all.

I have nothing to say.

Ok, perhaps I should say that I have very little to say.

Illness has eaten my year. I had the flu in February/March, I had a gallstone attack in June and had surgery to remove the offending organ in July. I've missed 17 days of work due to illness this year. Done now!

Family drama can bite me. That's all I have to say about that.

Election year politics... Well, let's just say that after watching the first 5 minutes of the debate last night I had to go get my spindle. If I let my whole brain pay attention to that I would still be sitting on my couch in a puddle of my own drool.

Dear Buddha, please bring me a pony and a plastic rocket.

Is it January yet?

I need a weekend...

To recover from my weekend. I had a great time at Black Sheep, but I'm now exhausted. Last year I registered a little late and didn't get in my first choice classes. This year I over booked and got everything. Oops! All the classes were fantastic, but it meant that I had less time to hang out with my mom and enjoying the rest of the show.

I did have a chance to meet quite a few of my fellow Raveler's and play a little Bingo. That was fun, I'm looking forward to playing again next year and having more time. Also, perhaps if I'm not in class all day I'll remember to take my camera out of my suitcase... maybe.

Tomorrow may suck.

Today I went walking on my lunch break. I've not done any excersize to speak of since the gym I was a member of closed in January. A friend from that gym called me last week and we made a deal that this week we would start walking together. Neither of us had been doing anything on our own, so together it is. We walked for 30 minutes at a fairly good pace and by the end I was hot, sweaty and my feet were starting to hurt. Tomorrow, better shoes!

My new toy!

I don't actually know anyone named John Appleseed, that's not my iPhone. But aside from that mine is just like it. I have wanted one of these for a really long time and now it is mine. All Mine!

Still here...

That pretty much sums things up.

My quiet corner of blogland

I have been knitting. I have been spinning. I have not been blogging. I finished baby blanket number 1 and have started number 2. I am completely loving knitting this pattern.

I have also started my Everyday Cardigan. In fact, I've been switching back and forth between sweater and blankies to break up the endless miles of stockinette. I'm knitting this out of Peace Fleece and the colorway is called Anna's Grasshopper. I got gauge with size US9 needles, so it is going pretty fast. I love the color and I will wear this sweater, but the knitting is not exciting.

I don't have pictures of anything because it's been really dark and gloomy here. Today it's actually sunny out. Cold, but sunny. Right now it's 29F. Hopefully I'll be able to get some decent pics of the sweater and blankies. Although I won't post pics of the blankies here until after they have been delivered to the appropriate baby showers. There are some progress shots of blankie 1 in my Ravelry notebook.
