I got stuck in that Nor'easter on the way home. I flew into Atlanta on Sunday with no chance of getting out of there for a day or two. I checked into a hotel feeling a bit sad and guilty for not being home. Ready to burst into tears at any moment. Fifteen minutes (okay two) later I was feeling like Iris (Kate Winslet) from The Holiday. You know the part when she crawls into Amanda's fluffy bed and in her fabulous british accent says, "thank you, Amanda"!?! Well, I sort of felt like that. Instead, I crawled into a fluffy bed and said "thank you, snow storm"!! I stayed for 48 hours and it was a treat. A huge treat. I did a mud mask, a moisture treatment on my hair, read, slept, watched tv, went back to the airport to eat and walk around, slept some more, cleaned and organized every bag I had with me, made lists, lots of lists, and of course, knit. Made a baby hat, one toast and then ran out of the merino for my kusha kusha scarf. I'm thinking the yardage on my merino cone was off. Way off. And will have to order more.
Emily is hosting green week. I love searching for color in my everyday living.
Go ahead, look for a little green in your life.
