Yes, this is a gift of a day...my office is closed due to the weather! Not much snow out there, but it is still falling and terribly windy outside. I'm thankful to not have to go out (though we do need milk...so maybe later I will venture out or send Fletch out).
Last night was another night where I had trouble sleeping. I don't know if I was wound up after watching an episode of Shetland, or wound up due to the possibility of weather, but for whatever reason I woke up around 1:30 or so. Got up and looked out the back window and couldn't see anything falling from the heavens. Got up again at 2:15 a.m. and could see that a new dusting of snow was on the patio roof. Then I saw a blur across the back yard. It was Tyg! He had not come in before Fletch went to bed (much later than moi), but was making a beeline for our patio. I ran downstairs and let the poor kitty in. And then I could see the snow coming down. Tiny flakes blowing all over the place.
As cold as it is, it is quite a bit warmer than the past few days. The temp this a.m. at 5:30 was 22...every other morning it has been in the single digits or low teens. Still, not a good day to go out for a walk.
There was success last night with the sock repair!
It is not beautiful or perfect, but I think it blends in well and it is not very lumpy (LOL), so I think it will be comfortable to wear. So today I can concentrate on finishing my 2nd fingerless mitt and starting Colin's socks. I may take a nap (ha! - not a surprise after my sleepless night) and I may read some (started The Roanoke Girls which I got on Overdrive). So far I'm enjoying it. And, I have laundry to do and bills to pay. It's a good thing I don't have to go to work today!
Wishing you all warmth and beauty on this chilly Thursday in January.
