Light Flurries (now with pictures!)
So, I'm not going to lie, I just forget to post here some days. When I'm off work, I just want to be lazy. Yesterday was my day off, instead of posting or anything, I went to the store with Mr. Shad, played some WoW (yeah, that's returned), and did some knitting/crocheting. Today I had work at 0530...but last night the county school system sent out an automated call to let us know that schools would be closed today. Well, crap. That means the daycare will be closed too. My job is about 40 minutes away, nobody wants to drive 40 minutes to find out that they're closed. Especially in bad weather. So, I hunt down the phone number that is supposed to let us know if we're reporting to work in the event of inclement weather (hurricane area, remember? we're prepped for this). It's a recording, oh well. Call it in the morning and hear that all non-emergency/non-essential personnel need not come in to work. How am I essential? A cashier. Psht, back to sleep. Get a call at 0540, oh, we ARE open. Whatever. After being cranky and doing things I'm not getting paid for, they finally call around 0930 and say everyone in my area should get home! Sweet!
There was no real snow at the time, but we've got it now! The snow is even sticking. It's so awesome. I know some of you have already seen your fair share of snow, but this is the first time I've seen it really snow down here in NC. Also, this is the first time my boys have seen snow. Ever. At all. The last snow that I saw was in Maryland when I was pregnant with Ky Boo. Of course we went outside to play in it. Too bad that we don't own any sleds. I mean...why would we? You don't see snow in 3 years and you get kind of jaded. Honestly, I didn't think it'd snow at all today. :)
Oh, I have pictures too by the way. I just can't find the USB cable for my camera. Right now I'm still steady working on instant gratification projects. Finished the
Grim Reaper and a few pairs of the Bijouterie earrings. This is really difficult/awkward, knitting with wire. Not to mention that the wire I bought is absolute crap. I'm considering ordering this Artistic Wire stuff off the internet. Yes, by the way, I've completely bypassed my resolutions. Haven't frogged anything. Though I did work on re-organizing my queue. So...kudos to me on that. lol Deleted a few things I never plan on making, or that my interest in has waned. Currently I have 6 WIPs though; one I mean to frog, two that could be finished if I'd just sit down and do it already, and one instant gratification project. Well, Mr. Shad is home. I'm going to see if he knows where the cable is. I'll finish this later.And my favorite picture from the day:
He's hiding from the snow. :)
