So much to tell you all. Well, I didn't make it to my talk last Saturday. The pass was actually closed for several hours Friday night because of an accident and I heard they got 19 inches of snow. So...they Skyped me in! Oh the wonders of modern technology. I was able to attend the entire day and hear the other three speakers too! I even ate lunch at the same time. My DH went and bought me a hamburger and I watched the ladies eat at their tables while I ate my burger. Amazing. They put my face on a screen right next to the power point I had emailed them. It all went very well and I've had several people email me asking for more information on the charities I knit/crochet for. And...I got to sleep in my own bed. The only downside was that I didn't get to hug my grandbabies but they skyped us later too so we got to visit with them.
The picture below was taken last Friday afternoon. It's a view of Mt. Spokane from our back deck. I think the ski area will be opening very soon. Isn't it pretty with the snow just dusting the lower elevations?
We're expecting another 3-5 inches of snow today and another 5-9 inches on Friday. It looks as if winter has truly set in. Even the birds are trying to keep warm! This is a picture of our neighbors house this morning. The birds were all hundled together but by the time I retrieved my camera some of them had flown away.
I recieved this cornucopia of fresh flowers from my Secret Sister at church on Sunday. Aren't they gorgeous? I hope they stay looking this good until Thanksgiving next Thursday.
On the downside I'm sitting on the sofa sick with the "crud". I have been able to get lots of knitting done this morning but otherwise I've very annoyed by it. I have no voice at all. Not even a whisper. I had to call "Miss E's" mom this morning and tell her I have a temperature of 102F so she probably doesn't want me around a tiny baby. I really HATE letting people down. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
I've started knitting a drop stitch scarf for my Secret Sisters Christmas gift. I hope she likes it. It's really soft and bright. I'll post a picture when it's finished. I knitted two slouch hats for a father and daughter yesterday. They're excited to get them-just in time for snow!
See you all again soon-please leave a comment if you would like. It helps to know you're out there.
