Bit the bullet and went into town last Thursday, watched weather on Environment Canada's site and tried to pick a day with not much chance of snow. Got lucky and 90% of the road in was bare and dry, the little bit out this way had icy spots and a little bit of compact snow. If highways used a sweeper brush on it when it first started sticking it would have got rid of the snow. Did lots once in town, oil change and car wash, banking, haircut, Wally World, and wholesale club. Stayed in all night up at Denise & Lens place. Then Friday did my grocery shopping, every kind of lettuce that SaveOn sells, plus a large box of mixed organic greens, cucumbers, 3 kinds of squash, celery, peppers, onions, cilantro and more. And the real bonus was a rotisserie chicken, so had a large chicken salad once home for supper. Lorelee came and helped unload stuff (including 4 flats of water), had cucumbers for her and sent a leg & thigh from chicken for her supper (she is babysitting the younger Harris' place). And the main reason for going in was to refill all my prescriptions, good now for a bit over 3 months meds wise. Yesterday was pretty much a write off, still tired from the trip to town, so finished a pair of socks, and started another pair of Monstersocks (left from a rip out a week or so ago).

Still spinning on what I'm calling mint chocolate chip. Pix doesn't show the color very well.

Got dishes all caught up and now will gather up more of the leftovers and watch football. Glad to be home, safe and warm, right now its sorta trying to snow.


  1. So great you could get into town and get stocked up before there is a lot of snow on the roads. We had just a skiff of snow and now today sun is out and snow is all melted. Love the socks! Love the choc chip yarn you are spinning, great colors. Take care.....

  2. Yes, all that running around & the long drive too. Whew. A couple of days of knitting socks & enjoying the TV are called for. Great socks. Hope you're checking in at WNN - Dotty has some new cat photos & one of a rather delicious looking Santa.

  3. Glad you are well Lynne. Just love your socks! And the mint chocalate chip looks downright "tasty " .........
