Snow Pile

When it snowed recently, the flakes coming down were the size of a slice of pepperoni. Really! So, I tried to take some pictures. Many were wet and soggy, of the deck or sidewalk, so I tried another approach.

This really captures the scene best.
Snow in snow.

Today, I received my Holiday Biggest-Issue-of-the-Year J. Crew catalog.
I cannot possibly shop like this!

There has to be some knitting in here somewhere! I took a photo of My Knitting Pile.
All projects are on hold until my hand is better
healed (or they let me out of this cast).

Recent hand surgery has been a challenging and humbling experience.
Recovering delights that I have encountered:

Can do:
watch i-movie things sent to keep me in good humor
read my e-mail
write responses similar to how my husband usually types
pee (no details)
cuddle up on the couch and watch nothing important
cut an apple and throw 7/8ths of it away because it's to much work
make chips and cheese in the microwave
sign up for a Yahoo account
look at knitting blogs
clip fingernails of 1 hand
put on loose socks
wear clothes that were Good Will potentiates because they have elastic
put on Chapstick
get one ice cube

Cannot do:
wear contact lenses
fold laundry
dust (that is not hand-related)

. . . many thanks for all the items on the CAN do list!
