Hi Blog Friends,
After feeling under the weather for a week or two and chalking it up to dry winter conditions inside house etc. to flare up in allergies, sinus maladies, itchy eyes, asthma symptoms, I’ve admitted I should see the doctor. Ok, it’s time for my 6 month check in with her anyway but I really need to put an end to this ICK that overtakes me every year at this time turning me into Ms.Ery (misery).
I haven’t felt up to writing here or doing much reading but I did manage to crochet a cool hat for myself using Kristina Olson’s pattern for the Neely Slouchy Hat that I found on Pinterest. It’s a quick little project that I did up over the course of two afternoons – so could probably be done in a single day. So instead of picking up one of the other needlework projects underway over here I may just make a few more of these hats just for the heck, i.e. since this has my interest at the moment.
Also from the depths of my Ms.Ery I applied for scads of temporary positions online and doing some networking.
I’m on the U.S. East Coast – Middle Atlantic so expecting a big dump of snow that’s promising to be more than the conversational snow that fell last night. Already hating myself for not stopping at the grocery store yesterday to stock up on wine, bread and milk. I have just about everything else I need to be snowed in for the weekend although I’m sure I’ll want to make something that I don’t have an ingredient for at some point over the Snowpocalypse or whatever they’ll be calling this one…..Snowpeii, Abominable Snowmonster? Snowsaster? Snowtastrophe? Snowbacle? Snowsoon? Snowvasion? Snowfensive? Snowsiege? Snowsecution? Snowvasion?
Soccer practices and already canceled for tonight, tomorrow , and Saturday. So far it looks as though my daughter’s first middle school band concert will go on as planned –sneaking this one in before the flakes fall. I guess I’ll be stopping off at the store despite the fact that I hate to be in there with all of the other last minute pre-storm milk-grabbers fighting over the last gallon of 2%. I hate when that happens!
