We're due for some more snow tonight into tomorrow morning. Probably about 6 inches, not enough to stay home but enough to make the commute difficult. And we're expecting really cold weather over the weekend. 12 degrees (-11C). Makes you want to pack right up and move to NJ doesn't it? We have no plans other than to shovel the snow off the sidewalks (Pk just went outside to put some ice melt down to make that easier) and stay inside to keep warm.
I would like to wake up and see that it snowed way more than expected and it'll be an easy call to take a day but 6 inches is really nothing to get panicked about. Fortunately, it's a slow day for me and I'll just make my way in and spend the day at my desk doing paperwork.
Peter Kevin is a college student again. He's taking a computer programming class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. He drops me off at the train, comes home and works for 3 hours, goes to class, works some more in the afternoon and then picks me up from the train around 4. We went to buy his book and it'll be shipped to the house next week. We had to go to an outside bookstore since the school store didn't have any copies (and we got ours cheaper!) He's only a few years younger than the professor which is weird. All the other people in the class are in their late teens/early 20's. His supervisor really pushed him to take this. Hopefully, the next two can be at night. Less running around for all of us.
Things here are quiet. They usually are in the middle of January. We are in huddle mode right now and I'm ok with that. I miss picnics at the lake or by the river but I know we'll do that as soon as the weather warms up. I'm enjoying knitting the heavy sweater and wearing my warm woolen shawls.
Pk is a little bummed since it's a little too cold to work outside in his workshop. He was out there last night enjoying the relatively warm air.
I started watching Dr. Who last fall. I started with the 9th Doctor and moved right onto the 10th. I wasn't used to the whole "regeneration" thing and was sad to see Christopher Eggleston go. I liked him. And then I got used to David Tennant, and after all, what's not to like. He's adorable. I got to watch all of those on instant download on Netflix. I just got the discs for the 11th Doctor and I'm not sure about him. I know I'm a season behind everyone else since I have to wait for them on dvd (not having a television) and maybe he'll grow on me. He's ok but he's no David Tennant. I have two more discs coming for the weekend. I'll have something to watch while I'm stuck inside with the knitting.
I love animated movies. I love cartoons and comics. I don't think I ever saw my parents read the comics in the newspaper but when Pk and I got married, we chose our newspaper by the comics it had. (it had Doonesbury, still our favorite). I don't understand people who don't like comics. I have my collection that I read online every day. And we have shelves full of our favorites like Calvin and Hobbes and Pearls Before Swine. I like to laugh.
I've been following some of the drama on ravelry with the closing down of one of the Big 6 boards (remnants if you didn't already know). As usual, it's quite a big thing. As Emily says, the drama llamas are out in force. Some people will jump on any excuse to get upset.
They need to laugh more.
