Ice, snow and cold.

I love December- ice, snow, cold and all the fun driving that goes with it. This week I had my first really bad thing that ever happened in a bus and that was a dog ran out in front of me. I hit a patch of ice as I hit the brakes and clipped this dog. Fortunately my little guys on the bus didn't see it and the dog was ok except for a slight limp. I was in shock when I called it in and the neighbor came out and told me there was nothing I could do nor was it my fault. She also took care of the dog as I could not leave my bus load of children. Great lets be know through the neighborhood as the bus driver that takes out your family pet! ( The owners need to know one thing- first it was an accident and second that is why there are leash laws). I still feel bad .
On a brighter note, my tatting, crocheting and candy making projects are going along fine. I am 1/4 done with my secret Santa gift, 2/3 done with my tatted snowflakes for my children on my routes and have a full 6 days to get all my other projects done for Christmas after school is out! My husband has learned to just smile and walk away (for his own safety). On December 26Th I am approachable again.
It is less than a week before my daughter's first concert as a music teacher in Alaska and she is reaching that calm place and having faith that the kids will do just fine. As the parent who went to many of those concerts through the years you don't hear the wrong notes. You are just too proud that is your child up there and aren't they doing the best job of any other child on that stage. And it will be the same for Becki's parents. Unless you are a music person you don't hear any of the mistakes.
Well my projects are calling me. Hopefully I will take pictures of everything I get done so I can share with you. Ta Ta for now!

Are you being sarcastic? You don't like snow, ice, and cold.

Yes dear- We all know my feelings about snow. But hey I live in northern Illinois so I must be crazy to stay! Not really the corn and tomatoes make up for it!
