The winter blues have hit. Between “life stuff” and weather “stuff” I’m feeling it. If ” “IT” means: Cranky,moody, irritable, sad. Probably also: cabin fevery.
So- last night I recalled winter.
I proclaimed a Mid-SUMMER NIGHT. With a look of fear in his eyes (at least fear his mother had finally lost it) I made the college boy grill burgers IN THE SNOW. We had corn on the cob with lots of butter.. chips, baked beans. Hubby wore his UGLY Hawaian shirt- Noah and I wore shorts.. I put The Beach Boys on the ipod (speaker thing)…and we had POPSICLES for DESSERT. Then we watched a movie complete with popcorn. (Summer=movies)
I suggested Noah go swimming in the bathtub (WITH his swimsuit) but that was vetoed in favor of seeing “Horton Hears a Who” that much SOONER.
We had fun- of course Winter disregarded my recall and is returning with a vengance today- we’re supposed to get up to 8″ of snow tonight and tomorrow…
But no worries- I have a plan for sledding and cocoa.. sometimes you just gotta roll with it.
- beating the winter blues..
For those wondering if I’m still actually knitting.. the answer is YES. It just happens to be a secret as to WHAT I’m knitting.. But I do believe I’ve settled on a lace pattern that looks like LEAKS that HAVE SPRUNG…in dark pipes.. or something…
Gee there might be a lil fundraiser of love in the works…. MIGHT BE.
ONLY A PEEK:
But a hint- the gorgeous yarn is bellamoden sport in “Black Tower” Available at the Loopy Ewe….it’s SPECTACULAR and sqoushy and pretty.. I’ve pre blocked a bit (but won’t show) and it’s working brilliantly with this pattern….
Hmm wonder what it could be??? I BET I KNOW….
