This & That

Thursday: T and I had dinner at a local restaurant that was recommended to me. The food was really good, as was the company. The evening was full of conversation, teasing fun, and laughter. Not quite sure what to make of him. He text messages me quite often, but doesn’t call much unless it’s to clarify something.

Friday: My area was hit was 6-8” of snow. I had the guy come plow my driveway between 4-5pm (right before I got off work) and I still had to park across the street and shovel before I could get to my garage. Have I said lately how much I like my new neighbors??? Both of them have snow blowers. One did the sidewalk in front of my house, and the other helped do “clean up” left over from the plowing.

Saturday: I took a 2½ hour trek through the local nature preserve to get some photos of the newly fallen snow. Fell/slid down a 10ft ravine… Camera got covered in snow, which I was freakin out over. It’s an expensive piece of equipment, which I bought just a few weeks ago. Note to self – bring camera bag next time.

Sunday: I was ambitious. I took down my tree and all the decorations. Normally, this is not done until *at least* February. Also did laundry. It snowed again. From 9-10pm, I shoveled the driveway and only got 1/2 done. AND…

I worked on my UFO… Mime!

There are lots of guys who hate talking on the phone. They never know what to say. But texting...not much to get wrong in 140 characters!

Congratulations on getting the Christmas decorations down. I've thought about it, but it's not done yet. It will have to be done by the 13th when we leave again.

I love reading your posts, even when they are not about stitching. They are so like parts of my life.

My Dh does not like to talk on the phone. He will call clarify and get off as fast as possible. He has always been like this ~ even when we were dating.

Nice update, but the most exciting part for me was that you worked on Mime!!! You have to be close to the 50% mark. Happy New Year!

Always enjoy reading your blog. Your writing is so interesting. Glad you had a nice dinner out with T. Good thing that your camera is okay after the mishap. Congrats on taking down your tree & decorations already. You are sure getting lots of exercise with all the snow shoveling. You really make me appreciate not having to deal with snow anymore. LOL
