Well many, many, many children in my area today got a belated Chrsitmas gift, a snow day for the first day back to school! Sunday started out with snow, then later that night I could hear freezing rain hitting our windows, by morning it was rain... then by 11am it was all going to freeze over again. Thus making the roads treacherous! So it was a Snow Day and a lovely way to ease into going back to work, I was able to safely get out of the driveway and to the highway so it was off to work for me!
Despite there being a handful of kids at work I was still pretty tired and headachy by the time the afternoon rolled around. I had my date at the gym for my small group session with the personal trainer (5 of us and a trainer, much more affordable than one on one with a personal trainer... which if money were no object I would so have one!). I discovered I managed to loose 0.2lbs over the Christmas holidays despite being busy/lazy/sleepy/eating out/eating junk/etc...etc...etc. So that made my day!
After a shower and dinner I settled in for about two hours of stitching, its now after 10PM and I'm sleepy so its time to share today's small, new start (small, because of first day back to work, gym, being tired). This soon-to-be Santa is from Prarie Schooler's Book No. 172 Christmas Favorites. I picked it up for a steal when I stopped in at Because You Count in Moncton, N.B. on my trip home from Cape Breton (where I was also lucky enough to be invited for dinner and a bed for the night to break up my trip home with Jennifer Aikman-Smith of Dragon Dreams and her family! I used to be one of her model stitchers.).
When I have time to get back to him, he'll be quick to finish.
