Just a few words...

This won't be long tonight.  I stayed home from work today because this cold is kicking my butt.  The good news is that I am feeling a little better tonight.  The bad news is the weather is changing and it is going to be slap-you-in-the-face cold tomorrow morning.

I mostly rested today.  And drank coffee and hot chocolate and blueberry juice and now more coffee.  I know, I know.  I should be drinking water.  Can I get away with saying that there is water in coffee?

I currently have 16 scarves completed.  That means I only have three left.  I still need to weave in the ends and take pictures.  Once that it is done I will wrap them (in cheap gift bags) and be done with it.

My heart is heavy tonight.  This summer I attended the wedding of a friend of mine from work.  She married her childhood sweetheart after waiting many years for the two of them to get together.  She went in to the relationship knowing that he wasn't in the best of health (diabetes and some other issues).  He had been in the hospital for the last few months and, while it was touch and go for a while, he seemed to be getting better, much to the astonishment of the doctors.  This morning, though, he took a turn for the worse and passed away.  My heart is aching for my friend, Brandy.  Please, if you are the praying kind, please pray for her and for her two little girls who loved him like he was their biological father.

Oh, and tell someone you love them.  And mean it.


  1. I am so sorry for your friend and will pray that God will comfort her and keep her in this time. I can't wait to see your scarves! What a wonderful teacher you are to do that for all your students! I hope you are feeling better!
