Involved returning to school, snow, rain, temps from -3 to 48, a huge thunder and lightning storm, and a bomb threat that sent us home early. 'Nuff said.
I don't want to forget this list when I have a little more time (after mid-March or so!).

What a nice break I had! Except for the weather over the weekend in Portsmouth (fuhREEzing cold), it was pretty temperate and nice, with a good quantity of sunshine for me to enjoy in the mornings (usually we're gone to work by the time the sun comes up). I had a nice weekend with my bff, lots of family visits, one peaceful overnight in the house by myself, plenty of mellow hanging-out time, and I finished the second and third pairs of socks for my cold-footed congregation member, so I am up for A Project, which I hope will be the imitation J Crew aran.
|One of the reasons the socks took so long. . . .|
In addition, I mailed off a fun, full box to Camilla's family, and I also completed an application for a job that *I think* will not lead to anything, but that is exciting to consider. I am proud of myself for stepping outside my comfort zone and taking a shot.
Okay. Now I am facing: an ass't I didn't know about for my PBE class on Saturday; prep for the road race on Sunday; more correcting for Fr. English tomorrow; a church meeting tomorrow night; a department meeting tomorrow afternoon; Nate home for a week, just when we are finishing our break!
But: "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well."

So suddenly yesterday afternoon someone mentioned that we might get snow on Friday. . . and we did! AND we have a three day weekend! It was 47 degrees on my drive to school on Thursday, but the winds have changed, and it's snowing hard, and I went back to bed at 5:30 and slept till 8 am. What a piece of wonderful!
A good deal of my morning has looked like the above, but, ultimately, it has ended up looking like this:
a great deal of the morning, so soon I will go eat some lunch and then settle in to knit in earnest––I think. I may sew instead, or write some personalized letters to go with some packages. . . . What a wonderful, lazy, restorative day. Tonight we are planning to go see "Patience" at the Grand if it happens: the snow is supposed to continue till 10 pm, so they may postpone, but we're game if it's on. If it's not, my day may not even feature a shower. What luxury.
