Now I can relate to Santa Claus.

Want to know what happens to your city when freezing rain and sleet fall for 3 days? It turns into a giant ice skating rink! Unlike snow, this stuff is hard and slippery. It's an ordeal to just walk across the yard to the car. I've already fallen pretty hard down the porch stairs. Let me tell you it wasn't fun. I think I bruised my hip um...and my ego, but I'm ok.

To make the best of the situation, Nathan and I with our new friends Matt and Rowan, who came from the UK for Megan's wedding and then got stuck here, and Nathan's parents, went sledding. It was really more like sliding. As inconvenient as it has been, it's unlike anything I've ever seen.

It took Nathan about 20 minutes to scrap the ice off the windows every time we wanted to go somewhere.

Nathan rummaged through his parents snow clothes and found this sexy ensemble. He was warm, though.

Before we borrowed the neighbors sled, we made do with a shovel.

Here are some videos from the day.
We started out on small hills.


I was like Santa, but minus reindeer, a fancy sled with bells, a beard, and toys.


Nathan and me racing...Note:I won.

Ice.

If you check Tulsa's weather you will see that we are about to be hit with freezing rain and snow for the next 3 days. They are closing our offices today at noon and the grocery stores have been ransacked.

Normally, I would be so excited. However, my sister-in-law Megan, is getting married tomorrow. We have the rehearsal dinner tonight and the wedding tomorrow night. A sleeveless bridesmaids dress isn't normally what I would wear during an ice storm, but for Megan I don't mind.

I will keep everyone updated on the weather. So long as we have electricity! Nathan and I are about to fight the raging crowds at Wild Oats.

The Yarn Bag.

My first sewing project.
The Yarn Bag
Place your orders here.

Mom's going to be so proud.

I grew up with a mother who could sew anything, blazers, pajamas, matching dresses, etc. It always looked unbelievably hard to me so as much as she would beg and plea I was unable to become a seamstress. However, recent developments, i.e. I've started knitting, have made think twice about my decision to live sew free. Knitting has inspired me in a number of ways, sewing is only the beginning.


I forgot to ask for a sewing machine for Christmas. Never one to enjoy paying over lets say about $20, I was pumped to find this gem for $30 at Walgreens...The Dressmaker II with pedal. It says it comes with over "100" accessories! I'm going to ignore the fact that it actually came with about 30 accessories. At least I know it's better than the original Dressmaker, I'm assuming that was the Dressmaker I.

My first project is a knitting bag. Wish me luck! Oh and I will definitely post some pics of the finished project. Now I've gotta go see what this baby can do!
