Snowflakes, photos and cough

I am sick :( I have a bad cold, and of course I got it just as I was about to enjoy a nice 4-day weekend. Sucks! I don't know yet if I'll be able to go to work tomorrow. Hopefully I will, but I hate being sick at work and I never know if it's better that I go and work or stay home to make sure I don't get everyone else sick.

I've been knitting a little, mostly on the Falling Snow stocking.


It's going slower than I expected, but I'm still hoping to finish it by the end of the month (that's what I call being optimistic).

Also, this is the time of year that I get jealous of everyone who gets to go to Rhinebeck. But this year, I'm not too jealous, because I wouldn't have any money for yarn even if I could go. That's because I got myself an early birthday/Christmas gift.


My first real (as in, not a point-and-shoot) camera! It's definitely nothing fancy (Canon EOS Rebel XS) and all the other models in the store were much fancier and pricier, but since I don't know a thing about photography, I'm happy with it. Now I just need to learn how to use it. It's too bad I'm currently so sick I can't even think about getting out to take pictures.

Turns out I'm not going to Rhinebeck either. Phil needs to have another surgery, likely tomorrow. Oh well! The stocking is turning out great! Oooh, and nice camera! I've been wanting to get a "real" one myself. Must look into that.

You will love that camera. I had 2 different Canons before my switch to Nikon, and those Canons never failed me. Takes beautiful photos!


Feel better soon too!
