It's Monday but it's really Tuesday!

These long weekends are killing me. They break my routine and I don't accomplish what I should. Bottom line I goof off because I think I have extra time. I thought I would post my pictures of my wonder swap partners gifts, but I still didn't.

Work was hard to go back to today and I really wanted to just crawl right back into bed. Better day tomorrow I hope!

The cold has subsided and we have warmer weather. Got up to 40 some degrees today. Yeah! Maybe it has melted all of the ice we had on Valentines day. Working in a building that dates back to the turn of the century and was once a warehouse, windows are not the easily accessible....so I don't know what it is like outside but in 10 minutes I will find out! I am headed home on the train!

ICE! ICE! ICE!********and COLD!

Tuesday it snowed and sleeted and the worst was yet to come. I woke up to about 1 and 1/2 inches of ICE! It was very beautiful but it kept me home for 2 days. Now you would think being home for two days a person would accomplish many things. Not me! I got so sleepy and all I wanted to do was to sleep and stay snuggled under my warm blanket and do nothing! I am now back at work and I have heaps of work to do. Now all I can think about is what I could be doing at home! Don't know if this is and "age" thing or just tired of the cold!

I had school last night and I did feel a little more accomplished when I got home. I hope this lasts and I get my "to do list" checked off some!

I have my sewing machine set up on the dining room table and I plan to sew tonight. I have some projects in the works and some ready to go. They are quick projects and I hope that my motivation mojo stays in place!

I know to most, the temperature being in the teens is not much, but us poor Virginians......ya'llllll...this is way to cold for us Southern ladies and gents!

I plan to post pictures this weekend. We have a long weekend....it is a holiday for us and the government has graciously given us off Monday so I can have three days to sleep......whooooooops....no.....accomplish many things!

Keep stitching!

It's Cold!!!!

I know that most people might not understand that when I say it is cold here in good ol' Virginia but it is cold for us Southerners! It has been in the teens for over a week and we did have a dry snow on Tuesday night. For those who suffer with "arther" it is tough. We were spoiled with warm weather for too long this winter. I just wish I had knit faster on my socks, scarves and mittens. They are all in the almost done phase!

I am so excited about a swap that I have participated in. Acutally myself and a very lovely lady from Canada (Katie B) have decided to swap. I am sending her package on Sat. and I received a notice that my package has arrived from her and is at the post office. I am picking it up on Sat. I can't wait. We both missed the sign up day by 24 hours...so we have created our own. I also made it in to Secret Pal 10 and I am very excited about that also. I just love creating things and going to the shops for secret presents and looking for the unusual. It's like being Santa longer than just Christmas time.

I was hoping to have some pictures taken and posted but I just haven't had the time. I am back in school and the reading alone keeps me away from what I love to do....but there will be an end to the student days soon....just haven't figured out exactly when.

But I do slip in some knitting at night and on the train to work if I don't have too much homework to concentrate on! I have a 3 day weekend coming up....yeah....knitting and sewing! I will live for tomorrow! That's when my 3 day weekend starts and I have my happy plans.
