We're snowed in. Dan's off having a boy's weekend. I'm enjoying being by myself, but I do wish I was able to go out to some stores. I did shovel yesterday, but when I was done all my hard work already had a dusting on it! And this morning everything is iced over. No way I'm getting out of the driveway! And with I did go out and try to shovel again, but the ice is just too much! I called a plow service,
I'm working on a sleeve for the Hourglass Sweater - can't seem to locate a 12" US 7 needle - so I took my 16" and Betsy's 14" and am working it as two circulars - it's a little mucky, but overall alright. Mindless stockinette.
Seems like I've been up for ever. Several times last night Jackson went into a barking "rage" - he was hearing the wind / sleet, but when he jumped out of bed and ran down the stairs and I can't figure out why he's barking, that makes me nervous. Meeting my parents for breakfast was early too...
I was looking for some other Irish things to post here and it struck me that when I hear elvish the picture I get in my head is Gaelic.
"May you get all your wishes but one, So you always have something to strive for."
"May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past."
"As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way."
**Edited to add the following exchange:
Yesterday I shoveled some of the driveway, and when I came in my wrists were sore. I sent an email off to my bestest knitting buddy Betsy saying that I needed a project on larger needles due to my sore wrists. She immediately called me to comment on the fact that I wanted a project that was merely on larger needles instead of resting up... Amusing!
