Hellooooo!! from Minnesota.
As some of you know, I spend about 4 months of the year living and working in Minneapolis. Which would be perfect (Minneapolis is a bitchin city and a terrific place to live) if that time didn’t include the three MOST MISERABLE MONTHS OF THE YEAR.
After a week of windchills in the -40 range (yes, that’s 40 degrees below zero), we had two days of 40-degree temperatures. Fabulous, right? Except those two days were like some kind of Zamboni Storm. The top layer of snow melted and, when the thermometer inevitably plummeted back down below zero, refroze. So my world is not only So Cold That My Skin Never Stops Hurting. It is now also covered with a superslick layer of grim death waiting to happen.
And what died last week was my camera. I fell on the ice, and crushed it mercilessly beneath my ass.
Fortunately, I was already saving up for a new one, and it arrived this week.
Moving between cities this way, leaving loved ones behind in both of my homes, it was especially timely to get a reminder that friendship is a thing beyond the limits of cities or states or highways. The reminder? That “you make my day” award that’s been floating around the knitternets.
Thank you so, so much. Seriously, you all did make my day. I mean it. You have no idea. (Ashley’s was especially touching, as she couched it in a Gossip Girl reference. Love.)
Anyway, I’m supposed to “Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland.” But, honestly, as much as I want to pass on this warm fuzzy feeling I’ve got, I don’t know how to choose. If you want to know which other bloggers make my day, check out my blogroll on the sidebar. Love ‘em all.**
Coming soon? many, many unblogged FOs.
