yup, it’s snowing. pretty heavily, too.
i am so glad i don’t have to go out to work today or anything.
once i got the car cleaned off and moved out of the way of the snow plows, i got to come back inside and settle in with the early morning email and work.
hehe. not just a cup of coffee—that’s a whole canister my mom left me (can you believe she went out already this morning? yeah, by 8 am she was gone to church—in a coordinating wool outfit, too, mind you—while i was barely able to put sentences together still, nevermind a nice ensemble.).
sigh. this being young stuff is no good.
although i have to say, my habits are already changing. i dunno whether it’s the diference in daylight (it gets light an hour earlier here than at home), or just rubbing elbows with all these early birds, but last night i had to go to bed by 11pm (or risk falling out of the easy chair and breaking my neck) and i was AWAKE by 5:30 am this morning.
and i felt good (just not like talking; i like quiet in the morning).
i don’t have that much new knitting to show you, but tesserae progresses nicely.
i’m almost to the heel.
over breakfast and talk radio this morning i added another couple of inches i think. being the capitol of new york state, albany is smallish, but mighty, and always a hotbed of politics. so the talk radio (and news in general) here is fast-paced, full of debate, and makes for very good listening.
right now there are some dirty, nasty conflicts going on between the governor and the senate majority leader, and at the same time, the constituency in a large, rather depressed area of the state has made its dissatisfaction with its elected senator known by ousting him in a recent vote. and the way things are going upstate industry, housing, and education, there is plenty more where that came from. there’s so much political activity going on in so many directions right now that it’s a lot like being a spectator at the coliseum.
so, if you listen with knitting in your hands, you are bound to look down at some point and realize that exciting news is good knit fodder. i’m gonna keep this up all week and see where it gets me.
