Brrr, it's cold - and I love it! I am feeling wonderfully content and cozy in the house these days. Emma and I have been doing a lot of baking and drinking a lot of tea, both of which make this chilly weather even better.
Steve has been without a cell phone for a few days due to changing providers, and it is terrible! I don't know how we ever survived without cell phones. He was flying in from Houston last night and he was supposed to be home by 10:00pm. By 2:00am, he still wasn't here and I was completely freaked out, already anticipating some cop knocking on the door in the middle of the night to deliver some terrible awful news. He did finally get safely home, but if only he'd had a cell phone he could have called me to tell me that his flight was delayed. (Of course, he was traveling with eight other people - all of whom I'm sure had cell phones - and I'm sure any one of them would have let him borrow theirs to call me. When I pointed that out to him, he was just like, "Oh, yeah." Argh!) Then today Emma and I were out shopping and we had a great opportunity to meet Steve for lunch but we missed it, all because I had no way to get ahold of him. His new phone is supposed to arrive tomorrow, thankfully.
I was planning on knitting some booties to match the soaker I recently finished, and I found a pattern that I thought looked cute. As I was knitting, I thought the pattern seemed a little weird, but I kept on. Now that I've finished one, it's clear that I made some horrible mistake because there is no way to seam this into anything that anyone will ever actually be able to wear. I'm almost embarassed to post a picture of it. Perhaps booties aren't my thing.
