My husband and I made our flights home within 30 minutes of each other on Friday, just a few hours before Blizzard Jonas hit our area. I don’t know if I’ve ever hugged him so tightly as I did when I saw him in the airport. All that stress and anxiety I had all week just melted away when he hugged me. Clearly he gives the best hugs, they always make me feel like everything is going to be okay. And despite the 20+ inches of snow, everything is okay.
Before Kendell left for his business trip he went to the grocery store, so I already had a freezer and fridge full of supplies when I got home. So we hankered down and have been binge watching How to Make a Murderer on Netflix. And my first subscription to Yarnbox arrived! I didn’t start anything with the yarn yet because I wanted to finish off a cardigan for Maddie (I did – details later this week) and then I started stash busting and am almost finished with another cardigan/jacket for myself (more details later this week).
But this yarn is just dreamy. I’ve been wanting to make something for one of my aunts and her favorite color is green so this might be perfect for her. Now to just settle on the project I want to make with it.
So this is us right now. A huge wall of snow that’s way taller than Cher (she’s been such a good girl and a trooper in the snow). Our neighbors were all out shoveling yesterday and Kendell is always the guy helping all of our older retired women out on our block. I think he shoveled out at least 3 other spaces. But we’re okay. No work, no class, a fridge full of food and good company. I’m thoroughly enjoying my snow days. How’s the weather where you are?

Well, if you look on the bright side: shovelling snow is a great workout! Builds up nice arm muscles that make those hugs feel so nice! Keep warm and safe.
I did not a lick of shoveling. LOL But I made sure he was well hydrated and fed!
Wooohhhooo! So glad you made it home, DWJ! 🙂 oh and thanks alot for the Yarnbox shout out! What a great idea! I joined 🙂
This is my first box and the only subscription service I was interested in joining.
It’s the best when you’re snowed in with your knitting, food, and dog(s).
Life is good!
Indeed, life is good!
