We Got Snowed On

But nothing like the East Coast got last week, only 3 or 4 inches overnight.  That meant this is what my neighborhood looked like when I finished blowing the snow out of the driveway around 7 AM.  Isn't it pretty?  The birdfeeders all had pretty snow caps on them too.  I confess that I went out later and cleared them all off when I filled the feeders but for a few minutes they looked like a Christmas card.

Yesterday at work I knitted on the Jelli Beenz sock.  I decided to keep the flap and turn the way it was and pick up the gusset stitches and just keep on  knitting.  After supper I knitted a few rows on the Hello Hamish sweater.  I didn't take its picture but, trust me, it's a little longer than the last time you saw it.

January 26--Pictorial, #S031.6.7.  The day's last light stretched rad and gold across the sky, turning the lake to a molten sheet.  Jan and Tom stood watching the sun set, their arms around each other.  "Remember the first time we stood here?" Tom asked.  Jan snuggled against him.  "Mm-hm.  You were a counselor at Camp Win-a-mac and I was a carhop at Chalkie's Drive-in in town.  I thought you were out of my league, just a summer fling for a college man."  Tom tightened his hold.  "Not a summer fling.  The moment I laid eyes on you I knew it was forever."

Trite but awwww.  The sun's out and I think I'll grab the snow shovel and clear the driveway a bit better.  Or not.
