Oh, the weather outside is frightful!

It is too bad that when schools are cancelled, that work is not cancelled, too!  We have icy rain now, but temps are supposed to drop which will make for an interesting day and night, I’m sure.

But here I am at the office like a good little worker bee.  The firm is having a holiday open house tomorrow and we must finish all the preparations.  So I am filing and cleaning up my area, my attorney’s office, and our workroom.  Perhaps we will close early today — but it is doubtful.

We had similar weather over the weekend and I spent the entire day on Saturday inside.  I cleaned and I cooked and I knit and I read and I watched basketball and a movie.  It was a great day.

I wrapped some gifties.  Yesterday I went to the post office and mailed my last two boxes for the holiday season to Iraq.  Woo Hoo!  Done! Soldier Daughter had a gift shipped to me for her best friend who is also in Iraq and I had gotten her a couple of things also and had tins of cookies and fudge to mail.  So I got those boxes ready and mailed them yesterday.

I finished the garter stitch shrug for Fashionista Daughter.  It fits her perfectly — but she refused to let me take a photo of her wearing it.

She saw a pic on the internet of someone wearing a scarf that looks like cupcakes stitched together, and has asked me to make one.  I looked around on Ravelry yesterday and found something that I think will work.  Tonight I may attempt to knit a sample and see how it will turn out.

Sunday after church we went out to eat lunch and then off to a local store to purchase ice melt, de-icer for car windows, and a new scraper for Fashionista Daughter.  We found a new beverage while we were out — 7Up with Pomegranate.  It is good!  We also like the Sierra Mist with Cranberry.  I use that with white wine to make a spritzer.  Very tasty.

I was in a comfort food cooking mode over the weekend.  Must be the chilly weather.  I made mashed potatoes, turkey and noodles, a pot of chili, a pot roast with potatoes and carrots, and egg salad for the fashionista.  She loves egg salad.  Last night we had bowls of chili with crackers and cheese.  Yum!

Back to the grind!
