The Road to Hell . . .

You know what it's paved with, don't you?

Well, I had a huge great list of things I was meant to accomplish today. So far, I walked on the treadmill for my normal hour, and then decided to do another 40 minutes because it certainly didn't like like I was going to be getting out much today. I pulled up ONE tote from the basement for Christmas stuff - and it's still sitting in the living room . . .

It's snowing - I was going to go out, but the snowblower has lost its allure. I already did the driveway once last night, and it's been snowing since the middle of the night, I think. For sure it's been snowing all day - and there's no point in doint the driveway AGAIN until it stops. I mean who wants to smell like exhaust two days in a row??!

So - I've been in for the day, and all my good intentions of little hour long focused bursts of chores were for naught. But I did brighten up the sunroom with these new tassles for the armoire doors. I love Tuesday Morning!! Yay!! Just thought I'd share those - I have a lot of tassles all over the house - they seem to be my decorating item of choice - there's a big one (like these) on the front door knob, and two really big ones on the china hutch in the living room, and an assorted number of small ones here and there around the house. I don't really know why I like them so much - I just do.

Two of my Iona sisters and I started this morning on the next book in the anniversary edition of Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way. It's called Walking in this World. We do weekly conference calls on Saturday mornings. It was really good to be on the phone with them again, and as wonder as The Artist's Way was, I think Walking in This World is going to be even better. So I can't count my day as wasted. The time I spend with my Iona sisters is never wasted :-)

As for the paper mess that is my office, and the Christmas decorations - well, they're only inside the house, so no one's going to really know but me, right? (And you ;-) ) I mean, I did take the lights out of the front windows - it's past Epiphany after all. The 12 days of Christmas have flown.

Here's some Blue-Faced Leicester singles. It's half a bump, and I'm shooting for worsted weight. It's a little tightly spun in spots, but I think it's going to come out nicely. It's from Miss Babs. Both Knifty Red and I picked some up earlier this year at the Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair.

I'm scheduled for a lesson with PatsyZ tomorrow - but if this weather doesn't let up, I'm going to reschedule.

Hope wherever you are, you are warm and dry :-)

Love the color on that bobbin! and I guess it can't be all that bad stuck in the house with all that lovely fiber;)
