Things I need to do today:
Take kids to Scouts and Dance.
Shop for food.
Things I should do today:
Stop by library to pick up books for science unit.
Work on making new pants to wear next week for special occasion.
Things it would be nice to do today:
Take Thalia shopping for boots and long underwear, since she has outgrown hers; she fits into my stuff okay, but it's awkward when we both want to wear them at the same time.
Take sleeping bag to laundromat to wash in big washer and dry in big dryer.
But, let's face it, IT'S TOO COLD! It's about 0F, with a wind chill of I-don't-want-to-know.
All I want to do is huddle up and knit wool socks while sipping hot cocoa.
Socks That Rock mediumweight in colorway Puck's Mischief.
Pattern hasn't been committed to yet, although Leyburn is a strong contender.
Irony of the situation: I don't even like wool socks. They make my ankles itch.
Updated to add: Be careful what you wish for. We just went out to the car to go to Scouts, and there's a large oily red puddle under the left front tire. Transmission fluid? Power steering fluid? In any case, we're stuck at home for the time being. I suddenly have no desire to knit, and a wicked need to go DO something somewhere else.
