My plans to road trip to Colorado to volunteer on the Obama campaign were snowed in this week. Yesterday, rather than driving through the snowy/foggy plains of Wyoming I spent the afternoon crocheting a scarf I had previosuly started and sipping sangria in a hot tub, what i would call, a pretty fair trade. I started a blog in 2007 at some point and have now decided to go ahead with it, as one of my cures for boredom at work is to browse friend blogs like hers and hers i find especially lovely. I don't know the ways of blog world so here is my attempt at making something. we'll see.
