It's snowing outdoors. It's cold. I've got my jammies on with my woolen slippers. I'm not cold in the house, but outside it's just too cold. I don't want to go anyplace today, even though I really need to get out and return hubby's Christmas sweater (slightly too small) and my robe (extremely too small) for exchanges for a larger size. I had no idea that my upper arms were that big, but guess I'm a big girl now.
I swept the stairs that lead to the basement and once at the bottom of the stairs, found a hairball the size of Rhode Island. I graded all the cat upchuck from the floor that had turned into cement, and dumped it all in an empty bag of cat food, spiders and all. Then I took my new handheld Shark vacuum and vacuumed all the little nooks and crannies (what's a crannie?) and sat down to type it all down.
Interesting blog fodder, eh?
I ran out of Christmas gifts at the end of the giving part, and parted with the crochet shrug I'd made when hubby's sister turned up and I had no gift for her. I didn't really get much for the guys, because most of the guys don't appreciate that sort of thing anyhow, but everyone of the women and girls got SOMETHING. I think. I hope I didn't miss anybody.
So, I'm in the process of making another shrug, this time in blue/green, and after one skein, I can see it's going to be very jewel-toned, and probably too pretty to wear about the house....however, it doesn't wear well under a coat--as the sleeves come to about the elbow.
The urge to go shopping is really strong, but the snow is discouraging me. I expect that from here on out we won't see much of the ground anymore. Sigh. I'm starting to miss the color green again.
