Making a list...checking things off.

It is now 4:00pm...do you know where your day went? Ever notice how quickly a day goes by when you're off, and how sloooooowly it goes by when you're at work? Why is that? I had big plans for getting lots of stuff done today, but haven't even made it through half of my list.

One thing on my list was to upload snow pictures from the camera. Here is a shot of the back deck last Sunday morning.
This is my sister using the snow thrower. See that big lump of snow in the left of the picture? That's my car. Completely covered with snow. It's a Big Ol' Snowman of a Prius!

There hasn't been much melting, since the temps have been quite chilly all week. It is supposed to be in the 40s this weekend, so here's hoping for lots of melting!

Another thing on my to-do list was to finish up the Brown Bag Sock Yarn choices. I never did November or December, so I tried to talk Emma into choosing which yarn should go with which month.
Emma says "Who cares? There are only two to choose from, and you're going to knit both of them, so what does it matter?" I have to admit there is a certain amount of logic in her argument, but it would still have been nice of her to play along. I finally gave up and unwrapped both skeins, and look at the colors!!!

Red and green, I kid you not! How funny that the last two skeins of sock yarn are Christmas colors! I'll have to think of something special to knit with them, seeing as I am so full of Christmas spirit this year, thanks to Sue. Notice the tree? Yes, I did put up a tree this year. No ornaments, yet, but I think the sock yarn looks pretty good on it. Maybe I'll just decorate it with sock yarn!

Red and green yarn, how neat is that? I'm glad you're feeling cheerier. How cab it not be a great Christmas when you get to share it with three wonderful red and white friends? I hope Santa brigs you a nice shiny new toy to make you smile.

Beautiful! And smart girl... she knew they'd go together like peas and carrots!

I was off unexpectedly today, and I was going to make good use of my time, and here it is nearly 6pm, and I'm still sitting with my dogs and my laptop. At least the Knight came home and joined us...

Pretty. The yarn makes perfect ornaments.

And holy crud is that a LOT of snow.
