Now Deirdre has chatted — I must chat also. Chatting must occur.
This was going to be a more focused post but let me tell you how it is.
It snowed another 18 inches over and above the previous 30 from last week. I feel that we are entering the Buffalo zone of snowiness. I will remind you that last year Worcester Massachusetts, a city in my general region, received the highest total snowfall last year. Not Buffalo.
Not that I want to live somewhere with more snow than Buffalo.
So as I was saying, Bridget and her friend Maria came to watch the Game on Sunday night, because they are both big Pats fans and they go to a college that hails from medieval times where there are no TVs. And of course, they got snowed in here (oopsies, sorry not sorry!). It was so snowy that I almost got out that other jigsaw puzzle but then remembered that they would go back and I’d be left with it.
It was cozy and nice! (I was so tired, though, that I didn’t take any pictures of them or the cozy niceness.)
When I did take them back early this morning, I realized that I should visit Deirdre at the Chesternest, that being just a wee bit up the road, and see if I could be of help (what with them feeling a bit sick and the snow and the preggers and all). So I spent the rest of the morning there.
Hence, this post is more chitchat than otherwise, but you don’t mind!
I’m not standing in a drift — I’m in the yard, above my knees in snow!
And I busted out a little baby cap, working on the mitts, during the Game. Must have knitting for a game!
I’ve also just finished a very interesting book called The Hobbit Party: The Vision of Freedom That Tolkien Got, and the West Forgot, which I discovered via dear reader Briana of Sandbox to Socrates. This book instantly reminded me of Reclaiming Catholic Social Teaching by Anthony Esolen (which we talked about before Christmas) — indeed they are companion books, I’d say! So since I have it in mind to gear up for Lent by encouraging some reading, especially in the St. Greg’s Pockets and hopefully with couples, these are books I’d like to be sure you know about.
So stand by — on Saturday I will chat about The Hobbit Party and have a giveaway of both!
* I have even more chitchat associated with going to the fabric store, my crazy textile stash, and my leather chair, but I will save it for later!
What are you up to?
