No School!

Well, the day started off with a 5:39 am phone call cancelling school for Mr. Fix. Of course he couldn't stay in bed, but he did manage to find out that school was cancelled for all of us in the FixFamily. Once I rolled out of bed around 9:30 (after the "Radio Reader" on our local NPR station, WNMU), I got ready for a busy day of...not much so far. This blog post. Paying my speeding ticket. Grocery shopping. Knitting.

What made the transportation directors call off school, anyway? Most likey the freezing drizzle we had last night. Or maybe the threat of blizzard-like conditions this afternoon.

It has been so long since I had unstructured days at my disposal that I'm always a bit confused when they happen. Before I had a regular job, my days and weeks were a mishmash of activities and jobs and errands and daydreaming and depressed hours on the couch watching whatever was on TLC or HGTV. Now I at least make it home to watch "Project Runway" on Wednesday nights.

My major accomplishment today was to finally finish the scarf I knitted for my friend, Jennifer. Now, Jennifer and I go back to my bartending days in Chicago, and this year for Christmas we decided to make each other something rather than buy each other something. We agreed on scarves. She sent me some fantastic bird-themed items (more on my bird fascination later), and I sent her some candy and a new North Face fleece. How does that saying go?..."The path to hell is paved with good intentions." Anyhoo, I'll post a pic of the now- Valentine's Day scarf tomorrow after it is blocked and ready to send out.
