Snow day

It has been snowing on and off since yesterday so I have made this a snow day. Which means staying in my pajamas, watching movies and doing a little knitting. Some of that knitting is on Mr80grit's new socks.

a little update

Well it has been 10 days since I have posted.  While I have been sidelined to do illness I am going to focus on what I have done instead of what I haven't done. I enjoyed the movie Blind Side with friends on the 20th after going out to lunch with them.  I was entertained by a friend's 1st grade performance at the library on the 21st. I was up and around to enjoy the afternoon of Christmas Eve at my MIL's and got to see my SIL and nephews.  Christmas Eve service was awesome and I enjoyed it completely. Christmas Eve night at my parents was fun and full of cheer.  Christmas Day was fun with my hubby and the afternoon back at my parents was fun with watching Star Trek with them.  Yesterday I was up and about to run errands with my hubby and do somethings for the office (more on that later). I managed to get to my favorite LYS yesterday and bought yarn for a project for next Christmas.

I am very thankful for my winter break and will be enjoying it more today as Mr80grit and I are off to see a movie this afternoon. It is snowing lightly here and hope it continues all day. I did finish one project during this time and it is the pink mitts above. They are a belated birthday gift for my boss' wife.  I think she will enjoy them.

Christmas Cheesecake and Chat along with more fun

This afternoon was a lovely time with the event of cheesecake and chat with my mom at church for a ladies party. It was a lot of fun with even gluten free cheesecake and gluten free key lime pie.  So very, very yummy.
Even Mr80grit got to go to the event as he ran sound.  I was so happy to go as in the past I always worked on Saturdays and couldn't go to the Christmas party each December.

After we went to do a little shopping before meeting up with Dad at our favorite restaurant. While there I got a chance to met Margene.  We had met years ago and have talked on the blogs and via email.  She was there for dinner and it was so great to see her.  She looks great!

I think this was a great way to kick off my winter break! Two weeks off at Christmas. I don't think I have had this much time off at Christmas since college. I have a few things scheduled but I have left a few days opened. I plan at least one of those days as a pajama/movie/knit day.  Maybe if I am lucky it will snow too!
