Mardi Gras is early this year, Tuesday, February 12. Here’s where I am instead.
Last week, I got a nice, new-to-me Saturn Sedan so that I could get home to the country on weekends. I’m traveling this way instead.
Thank you, Alberta Clipper and shame, SHAME on you, Mother Nature. Seventeen inches of snow in 24 hours? Really? Bah, HUMBUG.
I’ve been wet, frozen, snowy and stuck. I’ll be at this lovely train station, waiting for a train (for which privilege, I might add, I was forced to pay an extra $22.60) for the next 3 1/2 hours. There are so many places I’d rather be instead.
Still, a girl’s got to count her blessings. I’m grateful for my nice warm snow boots, my fluffy pink cowl, my computer for keeping me connected, my wonderful, resourceful hubby and my sweetie-pie pup waiting for me at the other end of the line. I’m also grateful that I picked up those two skeins of Arucania hand-dyed sock yarn last night so that I have something to do…instead.
