Today is:  Wednesday,  January 12, 2011

I got up this morning:  with a runny nose, raspy voice and feeling like I've been run over by a truck.  Have been taking NyQuil at night for the last couple of nights trying to nip this in the bud, but looks like it's going to take it's own good time leaving.. ;o(

As I look out my window:  I see the snow has stayed in it's perfect blanket of white across the yard.  Not even any footprints from birds or squirrels.  This is the third day for this snow and the weather forecasters are telling us the temps will remain below freezing for at least one more day... maybe more.  Temperature this morning was 19° when DH looked. (Yukkk... my coffee's cold!)  When I stepped out the front door the sunrise almost took my breath away!  Pictures just don't do it justice.

I am hearing:  just the ringing in my ears and the sound of the keyboard as I type.  It seems this blanket of snow subdues everything.

I am thinking:  that building a house and moving must surely be meant for younger people.

I am thankful for:  new found friends... ;o)

The one thing I learned during the past week:  is that my sweet DH will worry himself to death in an effort not to hurt any one's feelings even when he knows what is best. 

Creatively:  I finished the gloves that I started early last week.  The Red River Fiber Guild decided last week to do a Knit-A-Long using the pattern shown here.  I'm using the same hand spun merino that I used in the mittens and size 6 needles. 

Plans for the rest of the week:   Trying to clear out a lot of the redundant things we have collected over the years so there won't be so much to move... or to find a place for since we are scaling down.  So far we have totally trashed both bedrooms and filled the dining room table with tons of dishes to be given away.... didn't know we had so much stuff "stuffed" in the

I am now taking my cup of cold coffee... refilling it with "hot" coffee and heading to my chair with my Harry Potter book, my Puffs, and my blanket to spend the day trying to throw this off so I can attend the meeting tomorrow of RRFA group... sigh

Have a wonderful day.. ;o)

Boy, can I feel your pain! The good news is that it can't go on forever. Think of all the reading and knitting that can be accomplished when you feel like crud. Feel better soon! Looking forward to next weeks meeting.
