the wind and orts

It is maddening. Blowing cold air straight through you. Part of me wishes it would go away, but the other part realizes that the wind is the reason we have beautiful sunshine in what should be rainy Portland. Windbreakers are not even enough to keep it from making you shake.


I am knitting a baby blanket for Bocephus. It is with really thin yarn (fingering weight) with really tiny needles (US 1's) and I am hoping to have it done with enough time to send to my sister for her shower in March. Crazy? Me? Nah!


The store is slow today. What are people doing with their day today? Many do not have to work in observation of Martin Luther King Jr's birthday. I am not one of those who don't have to work. I've had two sales and one return. Not such a great day in that aspect, but a great day celebrating an exceptional human. Too bad we didn't get to see what else Mr. King could have done...


I am looking forward to a jammy night tonight. We were invited over to Mahjong Monday (as we are almost every Monday) but I decided that I really wanted a sit and knit kind of my jammies.


Oregon passed a law prohibiting smoking in bars. This makes me smile ear to ear. I can now go to a bar and not come out smelling like I smoked two packs a day. I can even go knit in a bar if I really wanted to get crazy!


That is all.

Knitting in a bar just kind of made me think of some type of candid camera joke to see how people would react. PJ night sounds like fun -- I wonder if I could get my book club to do it?

Glad to know all is going well even if it is windy.

Stay warm.

2 things:
1) It was almost 80 here today...the grass is always greener, as they say...I'd love some chill!
2) Bocephus? Really?

I am rejoicing for the enormity of the events today.

The inaugural speech was spectacular. We have chosen the right man.
