It turned into sleet! Yuck!

"Blizzard warning waffles"
But the waffles we made for breakfast sure were good!

We had some pretty, fluffy, heavy snow earlier yesterday- I liked it. It really does look so pretty from inside! But then it turned into sleet, which iced over everything. I was very glad to hear our garage open last night and know Tim made it up the hill- he said even his truck had a hard time on the ice.

 I did get my Henrietta Whiskers block done- there are three square in a square blocks to attach to the left side, but they're done. I guess technically it's not "done" since I need black embroidery floss to do the eye, but seeing as I can't go anywhere in this icy mess, it's done for now.
I only made small progress on the hexagons. I got into the Biggest Loser last night, and did some ballet-type exercises during the show rather than just sitting on my butt the whole time. I had a hypothesis, and it seems to be true, that by strengthening my feet like when I was in ballet, I could get rid of the need for an arch support. So far, so good! Which means plies and releves will remain a habit from now on to keep my feet healthy and happy.

Happy groundhog day! No shadow here!
