I'm home today due to snow. I could be at work. It only snowed 8 inches and we could have shovelled our way out without too much trouble this morning but chose not to.
Pk got up when the alarm went off and said, "well, you could go to work but I wouldn't". So, I didn't. He admitted later that he just wanted me to stay home while he worked from home. Since I had made arrangements with my supervisor, it wasn't a problem. I didn't have anything pressing at work today since the schools are closed and that means our day program is closed so no clients/groups. I have paperwork (there's always paperwork) but that can wait until tomorrow.
So, now I'm sitting here on the bed, enjoying the sight of the blue sky behind the snow covered trees. It looks frigid so I'll keep admiring it behind the comfort of the windows. I'm going down to put some jambalaya in the crockpot and some herb bread in the bread machine and maybe an apple pie in the oven. What is it about being home in the middle of the week that makes me want to cook?
These socks have been moving along very slowly since most of my time has been spent on the sweater. I love the colors and the thinness of the yarn. It feels like string. It's a superwash merino but there's no fuzziness, no squishiness. It's knitting up into a lovely fabric though. I think these socks will last longer than some of the soft squishy ones.
This is the view of my backyard that I am currently enjoying. Beautiful, huh? It just needs someone to go out and build a snowman. Kate and Patrick bring Kobold over and let him run loose in the yard since there's a fence. To watch him run is to see pure joy in motion. Kate has a cold but Pk offered to stand outside and play with the "grandpuppy". He gets such a kick out of throwing snowballs and watching the dog chase them.
Time to go put the startings of dinner on. Enjoy your day wherever you are. I have a book of zombie stories that my brother game me to read that I just might endulge in for a while this afternoon. Snow days and zombies. What a wonderful combination.
