They called it a snowicane this time…. snow-pocalypse, snow-mageddon…. the names go on, but this time nothing accumulated. And since we didn’t get a snow day from the office, I’d like it if everything thats left just goes away and I can bike to work again. Enough of this SEPTA already- my legs need to move in the morning or I just arrive at the office in a daze from reading on the train (I find it hard to emerge from books sometimes….)
I do hope the snow stays away tonight, we have plans to go check out curling tomorrow!

Fall is here! I’ve been eying some pretty good looking pumpkin recipes that have been floating around, and getting some headway on my knitting projects. Yay for productivity! Also, I just saw the latest Where the Wild Things Are trailer, and I can’t wait. I want to make myself a Max hat for the winter! It might mean adding another project to my queue, but I think I’m okay with that. Yeah yeah, maybe I should be smart and start on some Christmas presents (like the Redwings scarf I’m going to make Chris… still need to figure out exactly what that will look like), but I’ve got some time, right? Right? Yipes…..

Vacations are always too short with too much in too few days. My fingers are crossed for a trip coming up in August, but this short one night beach trip will have to hold me over for now…. I got to curl my toes in the sand, play with my $1 underwater camera, read with waves crashing near by, and get more work done on my socks. Even the thunderstorm was nice, although it did chase us out of the water. Chris won me a monkey playing whack-a-mole. We have far too much fudge in the fridge. Overall, a successful two days.

Ok. Sandstorm. You know the song. If you went to my high school, it might give you flashbacks to the ‘dragon wagon’ in the school parking lot, with a few choice cool kids blasting techno and ‘raving’. As much as one could rave after school in a parking lot standing by a mini-van with a bad paint job.
I really truly thought that the years that have passed have been an escape from the techno-fury. But alas. Apparently it is still popular. At hockey games. Almost every game that Chris watches is plagued by at least one sandstorm blast. Come on people. Let it go. Please, just let it go.
