It snowed all day yesterday, the most beautiful swirling, blowing dry snow. I was driving home from Church and commented that HOPEFULLY, there won't be many times that I'm driving under those conditions, so I needed to enjoy the beautiful scene I was seeing through my windshield.
We got about an inch and a half to 3 inches, depending on the area. That means that my appointment was cancelled today........ don't know yet about the hubby's scheduled evaluation tomorrow . I guess we'll wait and see what the temps do today, and then call this afternoon and try to find out what the roads are like between here and there. It's a 2+ hour drive to the west of us on a small 2-lane highway, so I want to be sure I can navigate it safely. They assured us that we can reschedule if necessary........trouble is, when can you count on GOOD weather in December?
EDIT: I just received a phone call from his appointment's office, telling us that we can change the timing to NEXT Tuesday. Now, let's pray for CLEAR road conditions, LORD's will prevailing !
In the meantime, I'll share this photo of the mitts that I made for my daughter and son-in-law. She found that her good mitts had been damp and have molded in storage. I'm not into complicated patterns right now, so just whipped up these simple garter-stitch mitts. The pattern is from Lion Brand.....you'll have to join to see it........and it whips up really quickly. I don't like having to stitch things together in knitting or crochet, but it's really a simple job. I used 30 stitches, as the pattern calls for, but went 25 ridges, including the row on the needles, for the bigger set, and 19 ridges (I'm still not good at counting rows in knitting, can you believe that?) for Kelley's set. This is shorter than they tell you to knit, but with my worsted yarn, and size 8 and 10 needles, the sizing I did is just right, I think.
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
