i've been busy loading new music to i-tunes... lately, i've added:
city & colour
tegan & sara
i've also signed up at twitter (see sideboard for my twitterpations).
well... i have a whole day off... so i am off to knit and read.... out for lunch with jason and our friends.... and perhaps even watch jason play some pick-up hockey. it really doesn't get much nicer.
but... i was lucky enough to have nabbed myself a new (to me) namaste messenger knitting bag.
i met squishyblue (whom i found through ravelry) from whom i've adopted my lovely new blue bag... and who so, so generously threw in a little present for me - of koigu!!! oh, i cannot wait to start my new pair of socks!
i'm so extcited, because the lovely teal colour of my bag feels like a harbinger of spring... she's also invited me to join her knitnite, which i cannot wait to attend.
i am so glad to have met a fellow ottawa knitter. squishy is amazing - she had the most beautiful entrelac shawl. and she is a knitting teacher! what more handy knitting pal to have then a teacher?
i love the interweb.
the drift up to the door is about shoulder height on me. (husband for scale):
do you see the bank of snow that goes right up to the second floor deck? insane!
i feel really badly for these people - the driveway hadn't been touched the entire weekend:
look closely - he's shovelling his car off...
my neighbours enjoying a lovely stroll in their snowshoes
a little before & after
here's what the deck looked like saturday around one p.m. - after i'd shovelled a good metre or snow off:
and, here's the after... you'd never know i'd shovelled - another metre!
the barbeque is a lovely reminder that spring / summer / fall actually do exist.....
