Snow Day!

Yesterday, Jet's school district had a snow day in anticipation of the 6-8 inches of snow that was supposed to fall here. Given that the temps were in the high 60's the day before, most of the snow that fell on the sidewalks and streets melted and all the roads were clear. But the snow did fall for most of the day.

Jet summed it up, however, when he said, "It's no fair! Getting a snow day, but not getting enough snow to even sled in!"

It was, however, really cold and windy and blustery. The lack of traffic was good when I went to my allergy clinic appointment. Not sure if it's because of the hiking in Arches or not, but I've regained a few percentage points of lung capacity! Went from 66% to 73%! So nearer to missing only a quarter of my lung capacity instead of a full third... *laughs* This is probably the best improvement I've had in the last three years, so it was quite encouraging.

The doctor even spoke of my getting off the shot treatments, finally. Usually, once one has reached a certain level of allergen exposure and is going well with it, the shots are thought of as having been "successful" and they stop doing them. In six months we're going to re-evaluate how I'm doing and, possibly, get me off the shot regimen.

It's still snowing today. Just white flakes blowing here and there randomly. It's cold enough that Jet and I are enjoying hot chocolate and teas of various sorts (thank you, flit!) I did consulting today and had fun getting them past something that terrified them. Someone else wants to commission me to knit them a Victorian style lace shawl, and I'm all up for that! It's been a while since I've done intricate lace, and I really want to do something fun.

It was also surprisingly amazing to have someone just tell me that they'd love to have lunch with me, and really get to talk with me and know me a little better.

It's been nearly as nice getting a flood of feedback on for the newest chapters on Twin Souls. I'm really happy that they like it there, and how many people are now reading a great deal of my other stories and giving me feedback on those as well.
