This Week in Pictures

Once again, I've been a poor blogger. I'm trying to make up for it with pictures again. Here are my photos from this week along with my comments as I posted them.

These are my 3D glasses to watch the commercials in the Superbowl. I really don't see the 3D effect all that dramatically with them. I'm really nearsighted and wear contacts or glasses all the time. I wonder if that's why.

Monday night is knitting night in Columbus, GA. We gather at Panera. Usually there are 12 to 15 of us - sometimes less, sometimes more. We drink coffee or tea, eat soup and cookies, and talk a lot. There are other Monday regulars who drop by to chat and see what we're knitting. We always attract attention. ;-)

Cornbread, cooked in a cast iron skillet, removed from oven with Toto the Extremely Useful and Cute Potholder. I seriously need to clean that oven!

Leaving work today. Too many red lights.

There were some interesting ice patterns on my windshield this morning. You can see my purse and stuff already in the car, but I couldn't resist the ice.

Went to Sam's Club tonight with Seth. It was close to closing time when we got there and I kept trying to hurry him up. He didn't hurry until they started making the "Your Sam's Club is closing in ten minutes" announcements.

I babysat tonight for two little boys I've babysat a lot. The older one, 6-y-o, wanted a paper airplane. One instance when studying engineering pays off. It flew pretty well, I must say.

I found out this week that one of my coworkers from twenty years ago died on Tuesday. We weren't like really good friends or anything, but it just hit me hard. He's basically one of my contemporaries. And now he's gone. I also know his son, too - A really great young man who looks a lot like his dad. Last night I ran into another coworker from that job. We chatted about this death, and gossiped about other folks we know - some have been laid off from their jobs. Times are tough.
