About Me

4.1.18

Hold on, 2018 is here!

Change is constant, particularly when it involves the best-laid plans.  After Thanksgiving, my end-of-the-year plans were set, I was taking time off from Scouts and then plans B, etc came into play.  The virus I caught in November hung on until before Christmas.  Thankfully, Jim and Ben were spared.  We had a lovely, quiet holiday and stayed nice and warm during the long cold snap, which is still hanging on. When Jim came home from the Grey Wolf Senior Staff development, I was asked to be Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop Guides for Jim's week.  Along with a couple more regulars, we're
getting the band back together, so to speak.  At Grey Wolf we talk about living with one foot raised and that's just what I'm doing.  It's shaping up to be a busy year through June!

A new hat for the new year.  I used stash yarn (doubled), which is even better!  

January started out with our Commitment Day 5K run.  It was a beautiful, clear day (although it was -13 degrees).  Toe and hand warmers really helped keep those extremities warm.  Ben came up later and we had our usual New Year's meal.

It was -13 and a bit slippery in spots, but we stayed nice and warm.  We are wearing our Crew 52 mittens.  

Today (January 3) I have the Christmas decorations put away, laundry caught up, and some handwoven wool fabric to steam and brush.  Classes at Anoka Fiber Works are on the schedule, WIPs are lined up to finish, and new projects are in bags ready to be knitted.  There is plenty of work to keep the hands busy.

Fond memories with each ornament.

Last night was the Minnesota Wild game and Jim had put my name in for a Zamboni ride and it was drawn for the pregame ride.  We got there earlier so we could have supper at New Bohemia and settled in our seats before heading downstairs by the ice.



Buckled in and ready to go!
