That's right, pictureless. And I'm okay with that.
I just looked out my window, and there's an odd kind of precipitation happening. Like if the temperature were twenty degrees warmer, it'd be a drizzly mist--but since it's cold, it's a drizzly snow. Tiny specks of white--and the wind is such that the specks are blowing rapidly and nearly horizontally. Not quite a thousand words, but you get the picture, right?
I'm off today, and it looks like my first errand will be to deliver the sixth-grader's forgotten homework to school. She has had a long week, and I felt so terrible for her when I found what she had left behind. Thank goodness for email! I was able to let the teacher know.
I have received some thank-you notes this week, and they just mean so much. Putting pen to paper is so worth the effort. I should put one or two of those in the mail today while I'm at it.
I am knitting a sweater. For myself (you had to ask?). It's a Quince and Co. pattern: the Belfast hoodie.
I'm using the Classic Elite Moorland heather yarn I purchased last year (I think--I hope it wasn't longer than that). So far, so good. The color is green, which is a definite departure from my usual purple and pink. Progress is slow, but that's what winter evening knitting is all about, right?
I have also started cutting squares for a quilt. Elizabeth of Oh, Fransson! is hosting a quiltalong for her Sparkle Punch quilt. Mine isn't going to be exactly as hers is. I also expect progress on this to be slow. There is no rush here!
I had an email this morning that someone I've never heard of was now following me on Twitter. Evidently she's a fun girl, and just looking for a good time! Had to block her--sorry, dear. I don't post on Twitter. I just have the account so I can get on Pinterest.
Before Christmas, someone hacked into my Facebook account. The one I thought was gone. Evidently "deactivating" is not the same as "deleting." And if there truly is a "delete" option, Facebook is hiding it. So I re-deactivated.
So far, I've read two books this year: The Summer of the Bear by Bella Pollen, and The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz. I recommend both. Last night I started Vaclav and Lena. It's a slow start.
That is all for now. Happy Weekending.
