Today was a very busy day....so much so I cut it short! Because of our "impeding" weather and me just being plain ole tired.
It has been dark, gloomy and wet here today. Threatening to snow...again. And it actually ended up what I like to call "snow rain" coming from the sky! Melting as soon as it hits the ground LOL
You are looking at a gurl who was born and raised in Wis-con-sin....we do snow, we do nasty slush, and we do double negative degrees.
The only reason why we wouldn't go outside is because we don't want the skin on our faces to freeze off, or our car keys to break off in our locks (that has happened to me).
But one thing we don't do is slide on ice!! The south is notorious for ice storms! We haven't had a bad one here in a couple of years *knocks on wood*
However, this past Thursday we did not have an ice storm, but some light snow that lasted all of 3 hours at best before it melted. Haha!Today, as I mentioned, it snowed a bit but was even less than this (which by the way the city shuts down - no school that day and I decided not to go to work since they always act crazy about it, I just follow suit! LOL)
As everyone was out and about scampering and running to get their milk and bread (Yes! I was in there getting soup though Haha) I decided to cut my busy Saturday short and stay in! Because it is just one of those "stay in and knit" days.
However, I did stop by my old A.C. M.oore hangout before I headed back in to hibernate, where they were having a big knit and crochet extravaganza, to meet up with the woman who taught me how to knit!!
Yvonne rarely makes it up to Charlotte, and I hadn't seen her in over a year! So it was a treat to stop by and knit with her for a little while (before the weather got "treacherous"! Haha!) Don't ask me what we were doing in that pic! Because we were not paying attention LOL
I will have to fill y'all in on what is around my neck soon. I tried to take pics today but again...the weather has been gloomy here which is not the optimal lighting to squeeze out some decent photos.
In fact, my last few F.O. pics I have captured over the last couple of days are not the best at all; but I had to snap them as they needed to be "gifted". Which is why I can't post them yet. So knitting indeed has been going on over here! :o)
One last thing! Rubys N Purls was a sweetheart and surprised me with this on her blogThis blog award is for "blogs that bring you happiness and inspiration". Aaah ain't that just sweet! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to know that I do that for others, when so many of you all do that for me! Thanks Monica!!
I am supposed to pass this onto X amount of people (you know how that goes), but honestly everyone that comes by to read my blog and takes the time to comment truly puts a smile on my face! So grab it if you do!!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend....mine is a 3 day one!! Yah! :oD
