Properly speaking I am iced in. We had snow Sunday evening, a beautiful white fluffy snow, followed by sleet overnight which turned everything to ice. So while this looks like the fluffy white fun stuff, it’s really a sheet of ice.
Work has been cancelled until it’s “safe” to travel. That might be tomorrow. Maybe.
Be careful what you wish for.
All thru the holidays I kept wishing I had just a couple of extra days to chill and maybe finally have time to fix a few things that were making me crazy. Especially when every time I had to get something out of the closet where I keep essentials (cat litter, toilet paper, Christmas wrap) a vast pile of stuff would slide out into the living room and defy my efforts to shove it back in and shut the door.
I have conquered my lethargy and cleaned the closet. This is what I need to throw away:
Because these are the bins for my apartment building:
The entire city is shut down. The garbage men won’t be around for the duration. I haven’t been able to take out the regular trash either, or the recycling, and I have several piles of thing to donate clogging up corners in the house too. Won’t be getting rid of those soon either.
So when I envision that extra day or two of productivity and/or leisure I don’t usually see myself knitting away with my cup of tea surrounded by a pile of garbage and bags of cast offs like someone’s crazy grandma. I know it’s tempting, but you don’t have to go there.
I have to share a few lovely gifts from Christmas.
An exquisite hand made wine stopper:
Some Habu Cashmere from Diana:
and this from the knitting party gift exchange:
Some silk and wool blend roving. Now if I just had some extra time so I could learn to spin….
