Oh Winter, won’t you go away?

I’m sitting here listening to ice pellets (sleet, but I prefer the term ice pellets – sounds more dramatic) hit the windows and house. I didn’t mind it so much when I was snuggled up in bed, but after two days of getting up at semi-normal times, Noah decided today was a great day to be up and at ’em at 4:30. The good news is that I believe it’s supposed to turn to rain later today. Hopefully it will melt away some of the snow at the same time.

Jake’s Nativity play was cancelled this morning (his CCD teacher called last night), so at least we don’t have to worry about going anywhere. It was rescheduled for January 6th, so hopefully the weather will cooperate then!

No big plans for the day, especially since it looks like we’ll be housebound. I should probably finish wrapping presents, and if I have time I still want to knit a pair or two of these super cute, super tiny mittens. I might even bake the brownies I was going to make for the post-play party. I’m trying very hard not to go overboard with baked goods or anything high in carbs, but I’m finding it hard this time of year. Once Christmas is over, I know I’ll be able to keep my focus again, especially since I know vacation is coming in February and I’m going to allow myself a lot of leeway. At any rate, we’ll see how the day unfolds!

  1. The rain started here last night, supposedly ice is on the way. Those mittens are cute!

  2. Are you guys going to get more snow? They just said on the news here your area is going to get hammered… maybe a foot or more…

    But those mittens sound cute!! But where are you guys going for vacation in Feb?

  3. Whoa, there’s BIG weather all over that part of the Country, isn’t there? I hear that Toronto is getting slammed too. Stay warm and enjoy the brownies!

    (p.s. your bread = my dinner last night. It was delicious.)

  4. Where are you going to vacation in February? I’m surprised that this huge mass of snow hasn’t hit us yet. I thought that it was supposed to start this morning. Ooooh, brownies! Yum! I am *so* sorry that Noah woke up at 4:30 a.m. That is insane! Meri has been waking up at 6:30 ~ not so bad. But last night, I just could NOT fall asleep … I ended up not actually going to bed until 3:45 a.m.! Today, I feel like I could just collapse. 🙁

  5. Oh gosh tell me about it …. yummy treats everywhere. I lost 2.4 lbs last week, so I can’t complain, but I did spend a whole day skiing, so … yea, that prolly helped. We’ll see what this week holds.

    Snowed all freaking day friday, but wasn’t too bad this weekend … thank goodness cuz I had to shop both days. Sooo behind. But now I’m mostly done and partially wrapped. Yay me. Still no tree though!!

    Stay warm …

  6. Thank you for posting the link to the mitten pattern! I’m about to finish a big project, and I think a couple of little mittens will be just the thing to start next.
