lazy ass

Not swimming is occupying too big a chunk of my brain. I'm not sure why I can't get comfortable with the notion that there might not be swimming again for a week or so. Here's the forecast for the next 10 days.

I love the snow. I love seeing snow in the forecast. And, if the past week or so is any indication, the forecasters have cracked the code and now know when snow is coming for sure. So... maybe I can get out on Thursday? That would mean missing less than a week of swimming days. I know from experience that I will not lose my swimming mojo in a week. I don't know why I'm so stressed about this.

I even stopped at the hotel that houses 13 Coins to ask if they had any kind of membership for their pool. Nope. Also spent some time looking at public transportation. It's possible. It's not practical.

This morning I tried, again, for breakfast at 13 Coins. They had way more staff but the service sucked. The food was good but, I can make good food here. I'm done trying at least until after snow. I'll cook my own food. I know for sure my service rocks.

On the up side, I think I cracked the what to do with the blanket I am crocheting situation. I need to get rid of the little loveseat first. I made a FREE Come And Get It flyer and put it on the bulletin board downstairs. If no takers, then I may do the Next Door app. Sadly the Salvation Army has no trucks coming this way in the foreseeable future. That's how I got rid of my last couch. Worst case, I'll pay a Task Rabbit or a Dolly guy $50 to haul it away. Once it's gone, I have a couple of ideas that will cost me nothing or very little. Since I haven't even finished the blanket, I've got time to noodle.

The rest of today is going to be the usual. Plus waiting for the next snow! But, it looks like it probably won't start until 4 so not a lot of daylight snow watching this time. S'ok.

early this time

They said it would start snowing at 4 but they were wrong... It's 3:45 and it's starting up. This time with wind so it's snowing right to left and left to right and all over.

All the area schools are now closed tomorrow. Parents must be going nuts.

Things here are fine. I'm coming to the end of my latest tiny project. I'll be able to finish it up and put everything away tomorrow. Next one arrives on Thursday so there will be bear making going on here instead of glueing for a while.

Seriously, this snow is going nuts. Totally sideways. And it's snowing all over the indoor/outdoor carpet on my terrace.

I am sorry I can't get to the pool but I am so grateful that I have no where I have to be, no one I have to do anything for, no plans to cancel. It's wonderful just to be able to enjoy the snow.

Oh goodie! One of the people upstairs just sent an email with interest in my loveseat. They are on their way down to check it out. I so hope they want it and take it away.

SWEET! They did! She has a little photography studio and it will be perfect for that. I did some room rearranging and it is all now just excellent. That's a nice bit of doing there.

Time now to watch Friday's Jeopardy before I get off my ass to make dinner.
