Weather Update

A little snow was falling, this morning. It is mostly gone, now. The weather forecast for the week does include some snow and rain.
So far, this year, I have a post about every other day. Do you think that will continue for the year?

I worked only Tuesday, last week, due to snow. It is snowing, now, wet snow. Meggen and went for a walk in the snow, this morning. I walked, she romped and caught snowballs. Yesterday, it was dry fluffy snow and cold. My office is closed Monday and Tuesday, because the doctors are out of town. So, I have been knitting and hanging. I did go get a massage on Friday and went to teach a sock class on Saturday. Looks like a knitting day, today.

Valentine's Day

Gary purchased some primroses for a splash of color in Nicole's garden. They are planted, a pink one, a yellow one and one with orange with a bit of maroon in the center. Happy Valentine's Day.

I did receive an email from the Sock Summit team, I have made it to the final round. Three rounds of rejection email have gone out, this week and I am still in the running. I don't know how big the final cut will be, as I keep saying my toes are crossed. Their email said stand (knit) by, rather clever.

Sock Summit

The teaching positions for Sock Summit have not been announced, or emailed. All the proposals (a lot) had been read by 10: pm, Feb. 1. So, still in the waiting game, I was all ramped up for Feb. 1, and now, that date has come and gone, so hanging loose. Still checking email.

Groundhog's Day

According to the groundhog, we are heading to an early spring. Sounds good to me. I wonder about the percentage of the groundhog's predication.
