A Night Out

I was very lazy today and spent most of the day in bed. I did not go to bed today until 3:00 am and then I woke up at 10:00 turned on the tv and watched an old movie after the movie was over, I cut the tv off and went back to sleep. I got up in time to shower and get ready to go out to eat with some of my fellow co-worker and some of their family. We went to Synder Farms restaurant. I had never been to this restaurant and to tell the truth I had never heard of the place until a few weeks ago and I have lived in Randolph County for 24 years in July. The food was good just simple home cooking, the salad bar was very good. I had a good time talking and visiting with my co workers and their family. How I am at home knitting,watching 48 hours A Mystery. Last night I cast on another Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth in the Christmas mix yarn, and I tried to knit a Bias Scarf out of the Pomp-a-Doodle yarn my daughter brought me for Christmas. I might try again tonight. I think it is possible if I concentrate. Still reading A Holiday Yarn, by Sally Goldenbaum. I called Books-A-Million to check on the book I ordered and found out they did not have my order on file so the book was not ordered. I had to reorder and will have to wait almost 2 weeks to get my book. It is Spun By Sorcery, by Barbara Bretton. This is a long weekend our office is closed on Monday for the Martin Luther King Holiday. I am not very sleepy so I need to find a good movie.

I am ready for a warm up!

It is cold here and I am ready for things to warm up and thaw out. We had snow early Monday morning and on and off through out the day, ending with a little sleet and freezing rain very early Tuesday morning. It was not a lot but just enough to make driving hard and getting into my drive way very hard, my driveway is not paved so this makes it hard to get back in the driveway after I get out. So I am ready for the temperature's to stay above freezing at night so the snow and ice that melts during the day will not refreeze. Had the chance at lunchtime today to knit and talk with my fellow coworkers. A woman that use to work at social services died Sunday, she was only 42 and had a lot of health problems. I wanted to go to her visitation tonight but since I had such a hard time on my icy driveway and worrying about black ice on the roads I did not attend. I really liked her a lot. She was to me a very warm friendly person, and funny. I always enjoyed talking to her in the hallways and during lunch breaks. She was a pretty woman with a great smile. She will be missed. This is the scarf I cast on Monday during my snow day. It is coming along nicely and I want to finish it this weekend. It has grown since this picture. Even with the knit two edge it is curling just a little but it is all good. I am on my way to bed to do a little reading. I am still reading A Holiday Yarn, by Sally Goldenbaum it is a great read. If I could spend all my time reading I am sure I would have finished the book by now. I need to check on my book I order at Books a Million. I think I will stop by after work tomorrow.

A Wonderful Snow Day!

Early this morning it started to snow. When I woke up around 6:00 am the street in front of my house was covered with snow, so I turned on the TV and watched to see if our office was under a delay I could not believe it when our agency was closed.So I went online to our website and all offices were closed. We are under a 2 hour delay tomorrow. The day was great because after finding out the office was closed I went back to bed watched the new, listened to the radio, I went back to sleep. When I finally got out of bed for the day I had the house to myself. My day was spent watching it snow, watching old movies, on the Internet, and knitting. I really needed a day to myself. My Mother left yesterday to stay with her Sister for the week. While she is in Montgomery County she will visit with her Mother, My Grandmother. So I will have the house to myself all week. I really enjoy time by myself. My knitting was nothing major, I finished another dishcloth and I wanted to cast on a scarf but a friend called and spent some time on the phone. All of my Monday night show turned out to be re runs so I watched another old movie. Well off to spend a few minutes reading before going to bed.
