Not one toy blew away...

Well, we did get a tardy Friday....hooray for us! I got a reprieve today, though. School was canceled! Apparently the nasty wind we had all evening yesterday really did a number, and all of the schools were canceled around here except my alma mater....sorry Tuslaw! Guess having all the schools on 1 street isn't so good for a power outage day off. Of course, Ari thinks it's my fault and is mad at me. I told her last night she had school today, and they didn't have school. Branches and trees are down all over. All around the neighborhood, I can hear chain saws going. My mom's neighbor had part of a huge tree fall on their house....and we didn't even lose a sand toy or child's sized plastic chair.

As for my knitting, I've been at a standstill on my bib I'm working on. I don't have the attention span to work out patterns! lol Hopefully, I'll get it done tonight so I can get it test knit and rework the pattern for righties. Yes, I'm right handed, but my lefty family members taught me how to knit, so I'm a lefty knitter. Again, thank you KnittedSister for helping me figure out how the heck to purl!

Wow! glad nothing happened to your or your mom's house!
All the schools on 1 street? I'd hate to see the traffic at 8 and 3!
