Last Friday we got 6 inches of snow. The kids and Daddy built a snowman. Now it is three days later, we've got rain and fog. And slush everywhere. Blech. And our poor snowman is shrinking. At least we have a good portrait of him in his youth.

I made some more progress on the crocheted half-moon shawl, but then last night, at the beginning of the 4th quarter of the Superbowl, tragedy struck. Yep, my worst enemy reared its ugly hea:, yarn barf. I worked at it for way too long, and I don't know if I made it better or worse. If I had a Wal-Mart close by, I'd just go buy a new skein of Simply Soft and be done with it. I might still do that. But not today. I'll instead work on cleaning the house. urgh.


  1. Oh no - yarn barf! That's one of my favorite scenes in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...

    Can you tell it's 4:30 a.m. and I'm a little loopy?

  2. You should throw a jacket on your snowman. I saw a mythbusters and the jacket totally insulated the snow guy.


  3. That snowman is too perfect. You need to throw some dirt on it, some clumps of dead grass, some dog poo...
