The air smells really good, there was just a very nice, temperate shower outside. :)

On an unrelated note, I'll be doing a brief lesson on food politics, fact, and opinion, with the 5th graders in a week and 1/2. Should be interesting.

My tea is warm, and I'm about to transfer the rest of the music on the old, sad, needs-to-be-fixed laptop onto the new, slick who-knew-how-nice-it-could-be netbook. There is still the whole weekend ahead of me to do homework.

Things could be a lot worse.

Snow!

It's pretty outside, and I'm inside with warm tea. :)

Cathy made banana bread, of which I had several slices for breakfast...or lunch, 'cause I slept in disgustingly late.

I heard one of the chickens making an egg just before I got out of bed. Silly birds, don't you know it's cold and dark?

I finished a pair of socks on Friday, I'm waiting a little impatiently for them to dry. I'm wearing two pair I made right now, one knee high and one ankle high pair. With the silk long-johns I'm feeling very cozy.

I started making a pair of gloves for Bill, like these that I made for Josh and Marie, but without the ring motif, of course. (I don't know if you can see them if you're not on Ravelry, if not I'll put the picture in another LJ post.) Bill's will be a kind of oatmeal/burlap color. I like the Knit Picks Telemark yarn for these gloves, it's really springy and tough without being too harsh to wear.

I finished organizing my yarn stash yesterday, it took all day. I still need to do my book reorganization and deal with the drifts of paper from fall quarter, but I do have a sense of accomplishment about the yarn stash. I wrote down everything I have as I put it away, so I've been putting that into the Ravelry database in an attempt to keep track of what I've got for various projects. For instance, I think I have enough of the hemp/wool blend to make a very nice stripy vest, and I'd almost completely forgotten about that yarn's existence.
