Snow, Sun, & Knitting

We ventured to Garrett County where my parents have a camp. My mother mentioned to me that she hoped the roof hadn't collapsed under the weight of snow. My WH stewed and stewed about it until we HAD to go check. Here is a picture of the lane going into camp; barely wide enough for our truck, then we had to park at the neighbors because it was only snowblowed that far. The big hump in front of us, out the windshield is one of the neighbor's truck!!
Have I mentioned how much I HATE the cold. So we park at the neighbors(about 100yards from our camp) and we hike through the woods. Oh what fun! Beautiful as it was the snow was thigh deep (waist deep in places), I thought I was having a heart attack. I had to stop twice to catch my breath. Finally I can see it, is it still standing?

It is still standing and the roof hasn't collapsed! If I would have known, I would have stayed home!! But my parents were very grateful that we trekked through all that snow to check on it!! And you know it's always good to make the parents happy, plus they have enough to worry about.
But now the sun is out and it have hit the upper 50s for the past 2 days!!! I am in my glory!!

I finished my Baktus. I really like it! I made it out of stash sock yarn, it's Paton's Kroy. I love how it turned out, it will get alot of wear!

Happy 2010!!

I know, I'm a few months late. I told myself that I was going to keep up with this blog this year. Ya know what's funny? Is that I have 4-5 blogs that I follow regularly and I get very upset when they don't post for a while!! Go figure. But, today being March 1 and me being Irish I guess I'll say that this will be the start of my new year!! Rationalizing, I'm so good at rationalizing. The holidays were good and I'm knitting away now!! I just finished two Olympic reindeer hats. They are so cute, I love them.
Now I am working on my baktus. The DD is in her second semester of college and loving it. The DS is getting ready to finish 8th grade; I'm not sure high school is ready for him!! I have big plans for Christmas this year, last year was kind of blah. I am working away on the scrapbooks too. I told myself that I was going to keep up with it this year and so far so good!! I am also going backwards and trying to get caught up. I am up to 2007 so not too bad. I got our New York album up to date, but we won't talk about the other 5 albums that are way behind!! Oh well, I amd making progress, that's all that matters, right?
