Snow Day

Of course I can knit that before Christmas.

The school at which I volunteer did indeed have a snow day today, so I celebrated by going back to bed for a little while. It was lovely. It feels so weird to just check a Web site to see if schools are closed - through elementary and some of middle school, we listened to closings on the radio. In high school, we started watching them scroll along the bottom of the local network affiliates. It wasn't until grad school that I looked for them online. Odd.

My Christmas cards are all mailed. Whew. I am still behind on the knitting, but not irredeemably so. I've pretty much trashed my knitting schedule, though, because I realized that if I worked on and finished one thing at a time, as planned, then by the time I started hanging out with family (on Saturday) I'd only have one or two things left, and if those recipients happened to be around during good knitting time, then I'd be stuck. So. Everything that is "due" on Christmas Eve or before is done, and I will work on the things for Christmas Day about evenly for the next few days, so that I can finish things up at my parents' house by either hiding in my room or working on things for one family member while spending time with another. (My poor mother has to work on Christmas Eve. While this is unfortunate, obviously, it also gives her the best chance she's had in years at having her gift actually finished and under the tree on Christmas morning.) I think it should work.

Snow days. I remember those. And my daughter calling home to California from college her freshman year at the first snow, declaring that her electric blanket was set to Deep Fat Fry and she was NOT going out there!

This has een a big issue with me, I had good knitting time - like at the graduation?! but dad was there, so I couldn't do it. Argh. I knit a couple inches tonight, it is getting there! It reaches to my belly button & around my neck. I want it to my belly button on the other side too (dad is about my height so that should be perfect I hope)
