Winter is back

Monday, March 13, 2006

After a few nice days and a heavy snow on Saturday morning, Mother Nature threw winter back at us. It's alright, I guess. It is March, after all, so I don't expect her to just up and let us slide into spring. For all I care we can have a nice long winter so maybe I can actually use my scarf when it's done. I miss my scarf. But the fingerless gloves are almost done, SGS (Second Glove Syndrom) has been averted and the second glove is nearing the finger mark.

In bento news, my box came on Saturday and I actually squealed with delight. I'm not a squealer by nature but when Kurt comes in with great news like that and I'm hunched over the floor, halfway through vacuuming the whole house, it feels good to take a break and jump around like an idiot. Today was my first lunch and, for the most part, it was good. With that said, I'll never again make sushi - even if it is just California Rolls - the night before and expect it to taste good at lunch the next day. The orange and almonds and peanuts were great, however, and made up for it. (And the granola bar stashed in my desk rounded out my morning.)

Pictures of completed gloves forthcoming... as soon as they're completed. I'm shootin' for Wednesday.

Heh. I'd like to say I'm not a squealer, but I so am. It's involuntary!
