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.
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
