am enjoying my time off, and have gotten a lot of stuff accomplished. clearing up the desk, watching the birds, snow, quilt club---a few photos of the latest happenings. had a great time at the choir party, and a fabulous low-country boil at charlie and lynette's. the knitting isn't going as fast as i'd like, but i'm working a little bit on each project. can't believe how cold it is! I think I"ve got another 120 hours left-if i don't turn into a popsicle first!
