I'm fifty-percent done with this pair of socks. My family is probably half way through this nasty bout of flu… I cannot wait for clear sinuses. And I'm hoping that we are more than halfway to spring. I'm a long-time lover of the winter weather, but this year, I'm over it. I'm ready for sunshine with above freezing temperatures, non-treacherous walks through the neighborhood, uneventful commutes to and from work and the occasion to take down our outdoor Christmas decor. Yes, we are those people… this year anyway.
