This and That

It’s all about the weather these days, isn’t it?

So far, we’ve missed the blizzard-of-the-century that didn’t happen, and the two other storms that came after that didn’t bring the amount of snow that was forecasted.  I’m not complaining.  We got some snow, and plenty of cold, but not as much as the other areas.  I’m ready for winter to end, though.  Aren’t you?

One good thing about the snowstorms and dangerous road conditions … snow days and days off from work.  These unexpected days off add to the weekend – coincidentally, the storms blew in during the weekend, and Mondays and sometimes Tuesdays were horrible travel days.  So we just stayed home, and caught up with stuff we didn’t have time to do over the weekend.

For me, though, it also meant that it was full immersion in my newest obsession – weaving!  I was able to take a beginning class last month, and since then, it’s been non-stop weaving.  Can you imagine that I’ve put aside knitting and crocheting (except for about 15 minutes at a time), and been working on playing with the rigid heddle loom and being amazed at what can come out it?  Here’s some that I’ve finished.  I’ve written about the full experience over on my crafts blog, if you’re interested in seeing how these came about.

I finally got business cards and gift tags ordered for my charity/causes, from Moo.com.  If you’re thinking of getting business cards or stocking up, try them out.  You’ll get a 10% discount off your first purchase, by clicking on this link.  It’ll give me some points towards my next purchase with them, if I decide to order from them again.  Beware … they have lots of other cute stuff to tempt you … like stickers!  Never even thought of stickers to attach to gifts, donations, etc, but that’s a good idea. Maybe next time …

I’ll be going on a short trip next week … off for some hot sunshine, and away from the snow and cold!  Hopefully the weather will be warmer when I get back …

    1. LoL !! I’ll send some cold air over your way. although I think there were parts of California that were cooler than usual. The weather patterns these days are very unpredictable, all thanks to global warming and any number of causes.

What do you think about this?
