I Got My Wish

We did get the winter storm - not as much snow as some parts of Ontario but enough to cancel the school buses, keep my husband home, and drift in our driveway! Poor little Barkley got a big surprise when he stepped off the front porch and was almost covered in the snow.

The only thing that didn't happen was that Duets did not get here. Maybe today - but I'm not sure I have that much confidence in Canada Post.

I got this sample skein in yesterday - and finally, a pair of socks for my husband. This yarn won't be here until mid- April but it's a very nice self-striping! I love how the colors produce different widths of stripes.

My poor daughter and grandson - yesterday morning, Laura's foot slipped off the stair while she was bringing the baby downstairs for breakfast and she fell back. The baby's leg got caught behind her and he now is sporting a cast. He fractured his femur and the poor little guy has a cast from his toes to the very top of his leg. The doctor said if an adult had this injury it would mean surgery and three months to heal but because Liam is a baby and his bones are soft he should be back to normal quickly. Laura is devastated and can't stop crying - I feel so bad for her because we all know what it's like to do something like this. Liam doesn't seem to mind the cast at all - but isn't that the way - the adults take days to recover and he's fine right away.

Cool on the snow....we have a lot here too! It's beautiful to look at but a pain to shovel and drive through. Canada Post says through sleet and snow...we'll see eh? LOL! I'm waiting on yarn too...darn snow...LOL Glad your grandson will be okay and I hope your DD will be okay too - it's true, it's always harder on the parents.

Poor Laura!! Poor Liam!! My heart goes out to them both and to the rest of you. I'm sure Liam will make a fast and full recovery, but what a horrible thing for Laura to have to go through as a mother. :( I'll bet you're just as sad for Laura as she is for Liam! Oh. :( Sad times. I hope everything and everyone is good as new very soon. My thoughts are with you!

The snow looks lovely. Sorry to hear about your grandson and daughter's accident. Hope things are on the mend and things are getting back to normal now. Our best wishes
