"'s cold outside!!"

Time to head West as it's 28 degrees and snowing this morning. Four more days and I can pack the car and go. I'll be pretty much off line and out of touch as I visit my way across the country to Arizona. I do have a wireless equipped laptop and if the Gods of the Internet cooperate, I may post some photos and comments along the way.

You know it's getting chilly when I resort to socks with my flip-flops. Haven't drug out the shoes yet, but if this snow amounts to the 3" they say .... well, shoes are a distinct possibility! Dang... there goes my goal of 365 days of flip-flops....

Jen's bag got put to immediate use. Can you see that it's all my colors? A crocheted winter hat for my G'daughter is nestled in the bag. It looks so pretty that I almost hate to finish the hat and leave the bag empty.

Ahhhh, the "get out of town" blues.... Projects seem to drop to the bottom of the list and then drop off of the list. I always think I have more time than I really do. I'm making a utilitarian kilt for a Christmas present - This entails pressing umpteen million pleats and I'm not sure I can get it all done before I leave. Oh, well a kilt does pack flat and doesn't take up much room

Then there is my Bead Journal Project - way behind and one messy work board of starts and ideas. I think I need a real creative idea for a lid so I can pack this on the very top and work on the pages as I travel. October and November are just glimmer of ideas and August needs the background filled in. I know that I'll find other bead projects in-progress as I sort and pack my beads for the trip. I get easily distracted and think of other things I want to try before finishing what's in front of me.

I'm having Thanksgiving dinner with the family, signing off for a few weeks and hopefully Arizona will have happy, clear blue skies and none of this wet, white cold stuff falling from the skies here in NH

  1. Here's hoping you have a good Thanksgiving and a safe and happy journey. Don't forget, Panera is all over the place and has free wifi!

    Have you considered Glad Press 'n Seal for the work tray? Take a roll with you so you can replace the "lid" if you need to. But if it will stick without damaging the tray, it could be the perfect answer.
