Wild winter weekend

The cold I was fighting came on with a fury and knocked me out, so Friday I worked from home and kept my germs to myself.

Tux was my coworker for the day, as I settled on the couch with my laptop to finish my writing and editing.Apparently he finds customs brokerage to be a boring topic to write about, but it keeps him in cat kibbles so he really shouldn't complain.

And, after mentioning how much of a non-winter we've had this year - Saturday we woke up to a winter wonderland.The snow started falling late Friday and right through Saturday morning. We even got a little more this morning.

It's hard to say how long this will stick around for - they are predicting mild temperatures for the rest of the week. So I spent Saturday enjoying the snow from inside with the cats - and set my fingers to finishing Dave's socks - and voila!I finished them up last night - with a few days to spare! These are now tucked away with a package of wine gums and some cinnamon hearts - all ready for Tuesday.

Now... I really should finish the band on the Lore Hoodie - but I think a new pair of socks is calling me......

That sounds like me, I should be finishing the back of my Central Park Hoodie, but I seem to have started a new pair of socks instead.

Yippee! Finished socks a couple of days early! Did you have to mention the sweets though? Now I'm craving sour wine gums and cinnamon hearts :(

Yeah! We got some snow too. Have been outside a lot today. The socks are awesome and woohoo for finishing with time to spare! Hope you are feeling better!

Great socks, he'll love them for sure. Wish I had thought of making hubby a new pair of socks for Valentine's day...next year. Take care of that cold.

I've managed to dodge colds this winter, even the super-doozy that felled my Madman. If I can stay nimble enough, I might be able to dodge until spring...
It's really hard to resist the siren call of socks wanting to be cast on, isn't it?
