Snow-cation

The weather in our area can only be described as unpredictable.  In an attempt to avoid the snowcropolis of last year, my boss closed our office for Wednesday.  Since I knew on Tuesday evening, I allowed myself to stay up a bit longer and sleep in just a tad bit on Wednesday.  It was kinda like a weekend day in the middle of the week.  No complaints from me!  I enjoyed coffee at the counter and a little time on Pinterest.  Then taking Sophie out for a walk before settling in to do some things inside.  I did make a quick run to the grocery store in the event that Thursday was a icy mess and it very well could have been! I knew everyone else who waited to go to the store would be hitting the stores on Friday or Saturday-NOT what I wanted to get caught up in.  I am quite pleased with my accomplishments for the day:
There was a little yoga, cleaning of the back-splash tile in the kitchen, a batch of peanut butter cookies, cleaning of a couple doors in Andrew's room, and binding finished on 2 quilts-yea for FOs!  These have been languishing for a long time.

There was the casting on of a new project-dream stripes shawlette

The snow finally arrived around 2:00, and when it stopped around 5:00 Sophie and I ventured out-she didn't know what to make of her tennis ball when it gathered snow and became a snow ball!
Thursday mornings delayed opening gave me a chance to cast on the Easy Folded Poncho.  I'm using Shibui linen and pebble held together.  I'll do more details about these projects in another post.

I watched plenty of pointless TV as well.  Steve worked the evening shift so it was just Sophie and me for most of the afternoon and evening-which i really sorta liked-don't tell anyone!!!!

I leave you with this clip from Saturday Night Live's spoof on our snowstorm of last year-I still find it hysterical!
