It sleeted off and on all night and then there was freezing rain and thunder! Finally that's stopped and the snow has arrived. It snowed briefly earlier...big, pretty, fluffy flakes but then it went back to sleet or else really sharp, tiny snowflakes. I was just getting ready to go out and see how slick my steps were when I was called and told the office was closed. Most of the people there are out on the roads all day and I guess they maybe were worried about liability. Works for me! I was hoping that we that stay in the office would be declared non-essential.
So...I've baked another batch of dog cookies and read and finished this hat. It's sorta wonky I think. I've never made a hat before so I'm not sure what it is supposed to look like but I thought it would be flatter at the top. The white yarn is waste that I used to tie up the last stitches. I'll try it on The Girl and then decide what's up.
I think the blue socks that were put in time out are going to turn into a present if I can get them finished. Now I have to remember where their time out is. I think they are in the cedar chest. It's not really lunch time yet, but I'm hungry and I've made some potato soup and I think it's going to be just great after I chunk up some cheese in the bowl before I pour in the soup. At this rate, I'll be ready for supper by 3:30. *G*
