It’s the end of October with another incoming storm

I’m a bit behind on my writing because I’ve spent the past few days preparing for Hurricane Sandy to come up the coast. It doesn’t seem as though a year has passed since the blizzard last Hallowe’en, but clearly it has and I’m doing the same things this weekend as last year. The difference this year is that if we lose power I won’t stress over it on the first day that it happens. I know that I can have a great time with the tools/toys at my house and uninterrupted time to use them is a gift

This year socks on my agenda for “me” knitting. I have the one pair of Wellie socks which I am sure that I will be using in the next week, but I really want to start making more of my day-to-day socks. A wonderful lady in England sent me two sock books, one of which is top down which is perfect with my existing yarn stash, and I really don’t like most mass-produced socks. Plus it’s a great way to add a splash of color to your outfit!

My command center from last year will look much the same this year, I think. While I’m not looking forward to a vicious storm, or the damage it is likely to incur, I am approaching this storm with a different mind-set than last year. I hope that all of my friends and acquaintances on the east coast survive this weather event with minimal damages. Let’s hope that this isn’t an indication of how this winter will progress.
