we are finally back home. thurs's storm took out our phone, but not our dsl. weird i know, but true.
friday we picked up kids from my mom's and stayed til this afternoon.
i got the driveway here shoveled enough to be able to park. and snapped the shovel in half. :-)
while at my parents the following happened:
sam learned to knit by latern light. that's right old school, immersed in the ways of knitting from the past... he soaked it all up and became a knitter!
it obviously was not by choice. the power eventually returned, but the night was spent in a lil dark house listening to snow crash 80 ft down from the tree all around us. here he is reading bleak house and knitting.
the kids played and built a snow fort. their first. in colorado they were too small to do anything but sit in a sled.
i still had the congregational lap top with me so i knit and played, received horrible news on 2 cyber mates. i have beem trying to recover all the work one has done, finding scattered patterns here and there. completing patterns. typing and recreating documents.
purple socks for Gigi Memorial KAL
and finished a bunny, started a lamb ( fuzzy mitten's patterns)
i had only a small ammount of yarn with me and no clean needles, in the future i wil pack better heehee :-)
