A little bit chilly.

Last night it dropped down to 20 degrees or so. Brrrrr! I was wide awake until after 3:00 AM and the house got so chilly, that the heater actually came on! (It was set on 50 degrees or so.)

After the day that I had yesterday - which I am not going to discuss here because there's only so much I want to say about work - I was not in the least bit surprised that I couldn't sleep. My head just wouldn't stop. I finally got up and watched a fairly crappy movie on cable called Broken. If you can't sleep, go ahead and watch it, otherwise, I'd say don't bother.

As for work, suffice it to say that after Wednesday of next week, I will officially be unemployed. A bit unexpected to say the least, but ultimately I think it's for the best. Besides, I did say I needed something to change. Well, here it is.

The weather warmed up a bit this afternoon so I spent some time in the yard, clearing out the rest of the garden. My zinnias finally bit the dust with the freezing temperatures of last night. It felt good to be out in the sun. Then I knit up an hand-warmer pattern from Weekend Knitting. I only made one so far and it's slightly too big on me so I think I'm going to adjust the pattern a bit and make two smaller ones. My hands are so damn small, it's always hard to find anything that fits right.

This evening it's going to be chicken tacos and a few more episodes of The Wire.


  1. it snowed here a couple days ago- it was so pretty! unfortunately, it had all mostly melted by the time i left work, so i didn't get any pictures.

    hope the job situation improves :(

  2. sorry to hear about the job thing!
    sucks that it was unexpected, but maybe it's for the best in the long run.
    on a happier note, guess who finally sent your birthday present yesterday? woo.
    I don't think it's gotten that cold here yet, but close. bundle up!
