And by over, I mean everything is put away and my house is back to it's usual non-festive disarray. That also means that it's time to go back to work, though this year, I didn't take a holiday break. I knitted seriously every day, including Christmas. But I'm excited about this book and the projects, so except for the constant underlying worry about the deadline, it wasn't like work. It was more like *fun* knitting, with marvelous (free) yarn.
I'm very much engrossed in Robinson Crusoe, which I am listening to as I treadmill. The story is fascinating, and I know that this is a book that I will want to read when I finish hearing the Librivox version. I do wonder if 'Ol Rob will come to understand that he spent two years in slavery, desperately plotting an escape, only to be shipwrecked on a voyage whose aim was to capture more slaves for himself.
Outside, it is a very white world. And since the sky is blue and the sun is shining, I may venture out to take some more pictures. People are out and about again, and the stores are open and I suspect that mail will be delivered today. The blizzard was nasty, and now it's over too. I'll leave you with a few more snowy shots from the last few days.
