I made it to Emerald Isle, NC yesterday. It was a very easy drive even though it was raining most of the way. Everyone on the road was on good behavior. At least 10% of all the cars were from New York.
I am always loathe to have photos taken but this look was so funny that I had to share it as a contrast to the snow photos of yesterday. We left the house for our walk and I was wearing 2 jackets, a hat, gloves and shoes. On the way back I had shed the gloves, one jacket and the shoes. It was a little chilly at 46 but it was marvelous to feel the sand under my feet. It's supposed to be warmer tomorrow but also pretty windy so we'll see how tomorrow's walk goes.
I really feel for everyone in Texas and all the central states. I hope you are finding ways to stay warm and I hope this horrid weather passes for you soon.
We haven't pulled out the sewing yet but I'm within a few rounds of having this baby blanket finished. It's been a little extra work to plan out the colors instead of letting them roll out however they fell in the Mandala yarn. I think it's been worth the little bit extra effort and I'm likely to do it again. I will have yarn leftover from this so I'm planning a hat or 2 to donate. The blanket will be a donation too and, yes, it will get blocked. It really needs blocking. It was a lot of work to get it to look this good!
I also got my baking and cooking done for the week today so tomorrow we will likely get the fabric and sewing machine out. But first a trip to Michael's for some knitting needles that Kim needs for her project.
I'm so grateful to be here. I know I'm not the only person who needs a break right now and I intend to take full advantage of this great opportunity!

Meanwhile in Alabama we had snow today. My yard was white but that lasted until about noon and the wind and sun had dissipated all but the thickest bits.

Have a wonderful vacation. It has been a long time since my toes were in the sand. I need to remedy that!

Looks like you are having a great time! Hope you don't get hit by this next storm marching across the state tomorrow.
