laughing in the face of a blizzard

Group One of our College Horde arrived safely last night. Group Two should be here by lunch. Our plan is to feed them a pound of sugar each, then hand over all the Yuletide decorations and let them deck the halls.

We are expecting 25 people for the family Christmas dinner (a little early this year because of various schedules) on Sunday. We are also expecting a blizzard on Sunday, with several feet of snow and 50 mph winds from the Arctic. I foresee half a ton of extra food lingering in our fridge for weeks.

Remember the mass of yarn I was untangling at NCTE? Project finished!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic I made fingerless gloves because it gets a little chilly in my loft.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHARYN NOVEMBER!!!! Go tell her thank you for being such a great editor and helping her authors produce fabulous books!

  1. Oh! Those gloves are awesome! Where they hard to make? I’m a very novice knitter.

    Happy holidays (early) and enjoy your time with your family! xoxo

  2. As long as the electricity doesn’t go out I plan on watching one of the DVDs (my Ex Supergirlfriend, Die Hard 4, or Cashback–haven’t decided which yet)I got from netflicks and also begin work on my fantasy novel.

    Snow should hit us here in Ohio tonight—ugh!

  3. i love those gloves. of course, i now also want you to wear a sweatshirt with the neck cut out, leggings, and a bunch of other early 80s clothing.

    p.s. i love you. thanks.

  4. sounds like you’re having a busy weekend! i hope the christmas dinner went well! love the fingerless gloves by the way! happy holidays! miss you! =) ♥
    p.s. i was thinking about other singers you wanted to know about yesterday, and i know you like gretchen wilson, so i thought about sarah johns. she’s a new country singer that reminds me of gretchen wilson. i’m getting her CD for christmas, and her song “he hates me” is very good, in case you were looking for a country singer recommendation.

  5. You are a GENIUS! Your fingers and thumb are open for typing, but the rest of your hand, and especially the back of your hand (that is the first to dry and crack) is covered to keep in the warmth! Oh, how I would love to have one for myself! ^_^ You are simply an genius!!

  6. knitting recipe


    I was inspired by your husband in the apron to send him a fabulous recipe for enchiladas (Which I will still do!) for those cold nights in Mexico, NY (they go great with margaritas, next to the fire!) But, I do also have a knitting pattern that I love that is great to wear out, or if you need some extra warmth. Start with size 16 needles (awesome to work with, forgiving & relaxing like it should be)cast on 54 stitches of ANY yarn (I experimented with two strands of yarn, how creative, to give me green and to add sparkle), then work in Garter stitch for 21/2 inches,then change to seed stitch, keeping first and last 6 stitches of every row in knit (with me so far?)then,work until peice measures 27″ from be to end, bind off and repeat again for other side, sew together carefully & enjoy! It should look like a GIANT scarf…
