Vegetarian Snow Days

Goals in progress for today: #3 Have a meal/coffee/visit with a friend or family member twice a month, #5 Document my year by taking a picture (with me in it!) every week, #14 Be vegetarian for a month, #15 Watch the classic movies everyone has seen but me, and #22 Take some sort of artsy class like spinning yarn or painting  

There's been a pretty good ice storm here in the Midwest and I've been off work for 3 days because of it.  I've had lots of time to knit and clean and watch movies.  Today I watched Desk Set, which was recommended to me by Jessica, and I really liked it.  She told me in no uncertain terms that I am NOT done with #15 Watch the classic movies everyone has seen but me.  I've added Pillow Talk to the list, and I sent back my copy of Sunset Boulevard that wouldn't play.  Hopefully those will come in the mail soon, because I'd like to mark this one off the list. 

On Saturday I went to the Trading Post for Fiber Arts in Pendleton and took a class on spinning yarn from a very talented woman named Kate.  I had never touched a spindle before and by the end of the 2 hour class I was actually making yarn.  It was like magic!  I forgot my camera so there's no photographic evidence that this actually happened, but I'll be going back on Saturday morning and will ask Jasmine if she'll take a picture for me.  Once I have a picture I'll mark #22 Take some sort of artsy class like spinning yarn or painting as complete.  Hooray!!

For this installment of #3 Have a meal/coffee/visit with a friend or family member twice a month the BF and I went out for dinner on Saturday for his birthday.  It was 2 weeks early but I wanted to eat a steak, and since February is my #14 Be vegetarian for a month month, we decided the end of January was just fine.  So far being a vegetarian hasn't been too hard.  True, it's only been 3 days, so my opinion still has plenty of time to change. 

You may have noticed that I didn't go to any museums in January.  I'm going to make up for that by going to 2 in February. 

Here's my #5 Document my year by taking a picture (with me in it!) every week for this week.  It's from my dinner with the BF.  I think we clean up pretty well!


More later peeps.
