Ok I checked...Its the 21st. How the Hell did that happen??? Wow. January is almost gone! Yay!!!!
My menfolk went to Mont Blanc yesterday for skiing and had a very cold time of it but fun nonetheless. The ski instructor for the kids class took them indoors twice to warm them up. They were bundled with helmets , hot hoods, neckwarmers, long johns, special cold weather socks etc etc etc but it was minus ten Celcius here in town and, so, colder and windier in the mountains. Brrrr.
I on the other hand had a blissfully silent day here in the house, BLISSFULL, I tell ya. I changed out of my jammies only to put on warmer ones. HA. Then I read, sipped coffee, talked on phone, snuggled kitties, flushed a fish, got bored and started laundry..LOL
That was the guilt kicking in actually. I also ran the vacuum and took it downstairs to its closet. But that was IT for housework...seriously.
I listlessly knit on Ben's sock and also matched socks from my missing socks basket (oops housework). I made about ten pair or so and the level dropped in a most satisfactory way. Eventually the guys got home and I cooked for the kids (of course Ben didn't eat) and then we all settled in teh TV room for some StarGate on DVD and I knit like mad all evening. Heel is turned and gusset in progress. Ben's sock will be finished TODAY/tonight.
Gotta go to the fish place to get some aquarium peat to lower our water Ph. Ammonia also tested as high so I added more Cycle.
Maybe this is what did in poor Scrub. Live and learn.
