just another snow day

They're here. Another snow day. School should be closed at the extreme seasons ~ winter and summer, closed. Fall and spring, open. At least the weather wouldn't be extreme; unless there's something going on I'm not aware of, ozone holes, aside. Mayan calendar issues, perhaps.

Nonetheless, Tom is on the couch.

Bennie is in the Big Ass Red Chair.

Ian has set up a gaming station near the other computer with his new TV.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Netflix! Presently playing: Dude, Where's My Car? Throughout the day we could be watching Fawlty Towers, Monty Python, South Park, Doctor Who and All Creatures Great and Small . . . aside from movies we don't have on DVD.

And these squares won't be going to Soweto. Feeling the need to get through a large amount of stash and make a blanket for some place closer to home. Saves on the postage. Selfish, I know, but there it is.

Let us all do a Happy Feet Dance for Bennie's delivered biddy doll from Ruth! It is a lovely bit of craziness and funkiness. There are even a tiny pair of drumsticks. I'm looking forward to mine. I hope to adorn an Imbolc altar with the dollies and other sacred things appropriate to the time.

Bennie is wearing a tank top.


We loves us some Netflix!

Must see about asking a friend for a copy of a knitted coat pattern she's working on. You would probably like using the general idea and dimensions and then make it utterly your own.

We've got snow here, too, and I've been cooking since 9 this morning. Just sat down for something to eat, but the plate is empty and there's more to do back in the kitchen. Miss you bunches.
