Tonight’s the Night

That the snow is supposed to arrive.  The forecast has gone from 2 inches to 6 to 8 inches. Hmmmm. 9 times out of 10 it goes around our fair city.  But who knows? 

The temperatures certainly dropped a lot.  I had to turn the furnace up a bit last night. 

I had a bit more productive evening last night.  I cleaned up the kitchen.  I made two batches of hummus — one for me and one for the worship leader.  I will take his to practice with me this evening.  My dinner last night consisted of four meatless stuffed grape leaves, some hummus, and a bit of labneh, and two pieces of pita bread.  It was very good!  The pug likes hummus, so I gave her a bite on a small piece of pita.  Lately when she begs for treats or sits at my feet staring up at me while I am eating a meal, I give her a baby carrot to satisfy her.  Much better than the cheese and peanut butter that the fashionista always gave her.  Of course, if I chose to discipline that behavior I would not have to feed her anything.  But she gives me that longing sad look with her one good eye — and I melt.  Eh.  The pug has grown on me.

I washed my bedding last night and remade my bed.

I measured the socks the worship leader gave me and wrote down the measurements so I can give his socks back to him tonight.  And then I started rummaging through bins of yarn.  I was searching for two skeins of dark green wool that I thought might be nice paired with the tan alpaca that I was also looking for.  When I found the dark green yarn, it turned out to be an acrylic, so back in the bin it went.  I did find the tan alpaca — two skeins — perfect.  Then I went digging through the sock wool and couldn’t find a thing to go with the alpaca for these hunting socks I want to knit.  Then I remembered that I bought some organic wool a while back that might be nice.  It was upstairs in my bedroom, so I went searching through the yarn in my room.  The organic wool — 6 skeins — 3 different colors — all wrong.  Then I finally spied two skeins of dark brown WoolEase — not my favorite, but it will work with the alpaca and be sufficiently thick and warm.  So I got out my size 4 dpns and cast on.  I worked on the ribbed cuff while listening and half watching the State of the Union last night while the pug chewed on a toothbrush at my feet.

I measured the red/white ball band cloth last night and it is in my bag for lunch time knitting.  Two more pattern repeats and then I can bind off.  I think I will do a single crochet edge around it just to finish it off.

So, my mantra for today is snow snow stay away.
