I Thought Today was the First

Maybe it’s because we were expecting to have two propane heaters installed.  No one showed up until 4:30 and all they did was bring the tank.  I had to take Gus for a walk by myself and I was feeling crappy.  Do you ever feel like you are on the verge of getting a cold, but it never materializes?  I felt that way for a few days.  I’m better today.  Not wonderful, just better. 

When I left Bismarck on Wednesday morning, it was in the 20’s, the wind was going at about 50MPH and it was snowing.  Yes.  I said SNOW!!  I am so glad I had brought my Philosophers Wool sweater, my Sanguhar gloves and wool entrelac hat.  They had to de-ice the plane three times before taking off.  We were an hour late leaving.  I kept hoping someone would start crying or screaming for a little entertainment, but no such luck.  I guess the plane was full of North Dakotans. 

Here’s my girlfriend in the hat that I made her getting ready to take me to the airport.

By the time we got to Denver, it was 50 and sunny.  My daughter called while I was still on the first plane, so I called while I was waiting.  She had heard about the nasty weather.  We chatted for a while.  It was nice to hear her voice.  I was going to get a bite to eat, but I had a headache and nothing appealed to me.  I bought a bottle of water and added a tube of lemonade mix.  I felt a lot better after that.  I had plenty of time so I refilled it and added iced tea mix.  Since I had a two-hour wait, I found a semi-quiet space and sat down and knit and listened to my iPod.
