There and back

I hate snow.  I really do.  I have no love for winter.  My birthday’s in winter.  Our anniversary is in winter. but really If I could transplant to summer, I would.  so Imagine my surprise, when on our trip back home on Monday, I was positively giddy when it started snowing.  So to revise, snow ain’t so bad.

We had a last minute, family emergency trip to Ohio this weekend.  My FIL was rushed to the hospital from work on Friday.  He’s home now, and doing fine.  he’ll just have a few prescriptions and lifestyle changes to deal with.  For a while there we were all on edge though.

The only knitting I did was on my niece’s shawl, which I finished and gave to her while we were there, so I wouldn’t have to ship it.  It was the flower basket shawl made with shine sport in silver sage.  No picture, but maybe I’ll get a picture of her wearing it in a few weeks.

Step mom’s socks were officially my socks on Friday, when we went to lunch, and I asked her what she wanted for her birthday.  She told me a land’s end tote bag that she can take on her chaperoning trips with the swing choir.  I came home ordered it, and then pitied her a little.  chaperoning high school kids on overnight bus trips.  I think i might rather chew off my own arm.

So, today’s my day to catch up on things planned for this last weekend.  Jennifer, your birthday gift will be late.  Sorry.

    I am jealous that you saw snow because I am that minority walking around grumpy lately because temps have been above normal (waaay above) in D.C. I’ll trade you my hot days for your cold ones!

    i’ll gladly package up all this damn show and send it to d.c.
    stupid cold, strong wind blowing ice cold snow in my face. I gave up trying to go anywhere today. Not even to the post office.
    But the headwrap i YOIKED from you kept my head warm. mmmm warm ears.
    well then you can give your gift to me near your b-day and we can open presents together! (it’s the thought that counts anyways, hell the mere fact that you balled auntie ruth’s yarn) is gift alone. altho i will gladly eat a bag of say YOUR PRETZELS!)
    kidding!
    i’ll shut up now.
    glad y’all are back unscathed and ok.
