Here I Am!

Whoa - too long since I last posted! Here's the latest dishcloth swap post...

If money were no object, and the day was just perfect - not to hot, not too cold, sun shining, slight breeze - how would you spend a perfect day out that had been given to you in the middle of a cold and blustery winter?

I would start the day with coffee and the crossword puzzle on my back patio. Then, after a long shower and taking all the time I want to get ready (remember, I have a four year old!), I would head to my LYS and pick out some new sock yarn and the dpns I would need. I have never knitted a pair of socks, mind you, so I would be choosing purely on touch and color. I'd take my yarn, and Ann Budd's book, to Sharon Woods, where I would sit by the pond and start making my first socks! When I got hungry, I'd go to Grinder's and have a turkey ruben (because if we're fantasizing about a perfect day, calories would not count, of course) and then to Graeter's for some Strawberry Chip ice cream. No matter that it's only available in the summer - this is my dream day! Then, I'd head for home, where I would take up residence on the back patio with a good book, a good wine, and good music on my ipod. I'd probably fall asleep in my comfy chair and stay there until someone made me move!

Wow, that day would be phenomenal... I should try really hard to make that all happen for myself one of these days. When I do actually get a day off, I get so caught up in the things I think I need or have to do, and I never get around to doing much fun stuff. That kind of day would really feed my soul. It's probably really insightful (to someone) that my perfect day doesn't include other people...

In other news, it's snowed pretty much all day here, just a really light powdery kind, and it's so pretty. No hope of a snow day tomorrow or anything, but it's nice to look at. It's almost time to mail my things to my dishcloth swap spoilee! I just need to pick up 2 more small things and I'll be ready to package and mail! Woo hoo! I hope she likes it - she doesn't often post on her blog, so I'm kind of flying blind. But I think she'll be happy. Also, selfishly, I'm so excited to get my package!!! :)
