White--Outside and In
Eight inches of snow!
My main preoccupation was snow removal. A very kind neighbor (who has half the driveway we have) toodled over on his tractor and blew our driveway clear. Going down the street he looked like the guy who traveled by lawn tractor in The Straight Story. A thank-you batch of English Butter Toffee will be delivered to him tomorrow.
The patient is doing very well. I brought him home from the hospital on Thursday afternoon and he's been improving steadily. He still is in some discomfort but that seems to be getting better.
Little by little we're realizing the big effect this accident will be having on our lives. No mid-January quilt retreat for me; no February ski tournament for Mr. Kathie. We'll be thinking small and focusing on home the next few months.
We had to laugh today--his 92 year old Aunt Tyyne learned of his accident through this blog. Thanks to all for all the well-wishes.
I've been knitting.
I finally got around to counting stitches on the wedding shawl. Two more repeats to go, and then it's on to the knit-on edging. Yes! The Kid Silk Haze is amazing--like a pile of foam in my lap.
