Winter and The Weather

Since I have the Flu there isn't much for me to do.  I hate this Saturday I got the flu and thought I was recovering today (Tuesday) but now I seem to be getting a cold.  But enough of my BooHooing.  It has done everything here today, rained, snowed, sleeted, and rained again.  All we need is thunder and we will have a  smorgasbord of weather.  I haven't done much knitting lately, but last Thursday, Roadweaver and I went to Savage Mill and I got to meet Laura Bellows, Nora's sister.  She is delightful, and I was able to order handles and bought feet for my Vintage Bag.  I better get started, since this is going to be a one of a kind bag.  Laura has a lovely studio and is very welcoming.  We also stopped in at a studio beside hers where a lady does beautiful ceramics.  We told her about the yarn bowls and she is going to do some prototypes.  Her designs are fantastic, even in rough draft.  Christmas is coming soon but I think I am ready or as ready as I am going to be.  

Hoping for a White Christmas (one of my favorite movies)!

We got the first snow of the season on Saturday night and Darby and I were stuck in our car on I-70 for over 3 hours at a stand still. We left Baltimore at 4:45 pm and got home at 11:30 pm. We sat on I-70 at Rt. 27 for at least 3 hours not moving. We finally, like about 50 other cars, got turned around and went the wrong way on the on ramp to 70 to get home. We stopped at McDonalds in Mt. Airy, off Rt 27, and finally got home at 11:30. I don't want to do that again. Of course I did have my knitting and got some rows done. We are lucky I had just gotten gas or we may have had to turn the car off. My brother spiked a fever and was admitted to John Hopkins on Friday, but he is doing better and will likely go home on Monday. They say this is not unusual but it still worries us. Please continue to keep Chip, Cindy and the girls in your prayers. It is cold and Blustery today so we stayed in.
