Snowed In and A Life With Men

Today we in northeast Ohio recieved quite a bit of snow. So much, in fact, that there was a driving ban. Only emergency vehicles were allowed on the roads!

I didn't have my camera today... I left it at DJ's house, so I didn't have the chance to take any photos. I am sad, because this is the most snow we have had in a looong time. Oh well.

With my time today I baked. ^_^ I first made some Cranberry Walnut Muffins for breakfast. If anyone would like the recipe, I would be happy to post it! Then I made some yummy chocolate chip cookies! I finished The Friday Night Knitting Club. Another book I really enjoyed! I now have nothing in my book queue. :( I won't be able to get to the library tomorrow, either probably. Too much snow!

I also knit, of course! My sister picked out some novelty yarn and she gave it to me requesting a plain old garter stitch scarf. I worked on that today and got about 3/4 of the way finished. When I got bored with that I knit a dish cloth. Then I started a Calorimetry for my sister to go with (kind of) her scarf. I will post pictures as soon as I get my camera.

I leave you with a poem. I was playing with some of those magnetic words at a friend's house and came up with this:

A Life With Men

why recall sadness, may I ask?
rose water they gift
produce a vision
never want time

You can read more of my poetry and also see some of my original photography/artwork here!

Oh! I also wanted to say that my friend Mason grabbed my finished sock and put it on and instantly exclaimed, "This is the best fitting sock I have ever put on!! Can I have it? Can you make the other?" So, happily, I agreed! Yay! So that means it won't be frogged.
