I'm Not in New York

I did not go to New York for the Vogue Knitting thing. I vacillated all week and all yesterday. When I went to bed I wasn't 100% sure I wouldn't bolt up at 5:00 a.m. and ready myself to be on the cold, dark and Saturday-morning-lonely commuter train platform in time for the first train at 6:13 a.m. However, when I woke at five and heard the temperature was 13 degrees I felt good about a decision not to go.

Yesterday I figured out I'd have to get the first train available to get to NYC and the venue anywhere near 9:00 a.m. when the marketplace opened. Then I figured out I should leave the venue in NYC by 2 p.m. to get back to my train station at a reasonable hour . . . meaning before it became too cold, dark and Saturday-evening-lonely. Allowing for a meal, that wouldn't leave enough time for perusing the marketplace to make the trip worthwhile.

So here I sit in the bright warm comfort of my studio preparing to knit the day away watching reruns of Monk's first season, LWDs sleeping in their beds in front of the TV. Ahhhhh, bliss.

Girl, thank you so much for your note. Big time drama in my life, divorced, sold the house, moved, broke my camera and lost 35 pounds!

I've been scared to post because I didn't want to air alla my funky laundry on the blog! You inspire me though, so I guess I'll give it a try. Stay tuned...

13 degrees! I see your point. A heated home and a good set of DVDs sound infinitely better to me too. Stay warm, knit strong!
