A Pretty Sight

Something pretty to look at on my desk courtesy of my beautiful daughters. Thank you!
These are much more pleasing to the eye than the piles of tax documents and forms on the other side of the desk.

Last Week's Storm

As the warmer weather starts to melt the hardened ice, I post a few images of the first major (and hopefully, last) winter storm of 2007.

Road Trip

Just the drive to work in the morning. I am very lucky to have this scenery every morning to remind me how beautiful the world can be.

(To respond to comments - NO, I wasn't driving when I took this picture, but I was in the car. The car was at a complete stop, with no traffic behind me.)

Sock Yarn Is Not Stash!

I didn't make that rule - Wendy and LB did. But unfortunately, I don't think I can justify the elsebeth lavold Chunky AL in the color Dune. Oh well, everyone falls off their diet now and again. It doesn't mean I should give up altogether, does it?

WEBS was having a sale, and I fell for the RY Cashsoft 4 ply for socks. The yarn is buttery soft. The contents of extra fine merino and cashmere with microfibre combine with beautiful solid colors. I couldn't resist.

Is It Tax Season Already?

I have been very busy at work. It seems people and businesses are ready to get to their tax returns earlier than usual this year. So I have been trying to get work turned around as quickly as possible.
I've also been busy visiting our new baby. She's only 2 weeks old in this picture and will be ready to come home at the beginning of March.
I've been very good about not procrastinating on my homework for my Abnormal Psych class. I've figured out what I need to do each week in order to keep a fairly even pace. And I've been keeping up, even trying to get ahead. I have a terrible fear that it will be the beginning of April and I will be behind in classwork and crazy-busy at work. What am I going to do when I am carrying 10-12 credits and not 3? (Switch to Scarlett O'Hara mode- I will worry about that tomorrow.)
I have been doing some knitting, too. Last week I knit a ribbed hat for my husband from a skein of Cascade 220 I had in my stash. He has a 4-5 block walk from Penn's Landing to his office in Philadelphia, and it's been so cold, he was happy to have something on his head this week.
