Snowed in?!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Yesterday it got warm and most of our snow from Monday melted. So we had mud and water everywhere. It was one of those don't feel like doing anything, so knit and nap all day days. I didn't even log me food (yeah I know, bad girl. I even forgot to get my sparkpoints for being on! But I did comment on a few friends' pages and log my exercise!)

So today I get up and it is snowing like mad. But they didn't cancel school. (That would make sense, and in this town...well let's be nice and not even GO there) I scheduled my ride for 9 to make sure I wasn't late for 9:30 therapy. I got myself down my steps (in the snow and wind and COLD) at about 3 minutes til 9. I walked up and down in front of my house trying to keep warm while I waited for my ride. Ride finally came at 9:08. Dispatcher had told driver 9:15 and told me 9. So not nice! Not smart either, but see above for making sense here.

Therapy went well. And by the time I got home, there was another several inches of snow on the sidewalk and my porch! I managed to get in the house-and this is where I am staying!! My broomball shoes sure are getting a workout! My feet stayed warm, dry, and even though the crutches were a little slippery, my feet did not slip AT ALL!! So cool!

Of course, we are out of bread and milk (son dropped that on me last night-at bedtime!) So I might make him venture out to grocery store in the taxi. Or I may just make powdered milk and put a little half&half in it so it doesn't taste horrid and get the bread machine out and make homemade bread. It's not like one or two loaves of homemade bread eaten in moderation is going to kill us.

And I'm definitely making a pot of beans and a pan of cornbread. And if this storm lasts long enough, I'll have another fisherman's sweater finished to sell.

Not too bad for being snowed in! emoticon emoticon

    I usually do look forward to snow days. Of course, in North Texas that generally means any ice at all on the roads! Only bad thing is that the power goes out at the drop of a hat here. But knitting isn't generally affected by a power outage--in fact a warm afghan in process is a good thing!
