Everyone talks about the weather

Someone want to explain this weather? It's supposed to snow, no it won't. It's nearly freezing, tomorrow it's 70 degrees. No wonder everyone is getting sick.

You can take the boy out of the East Coast, but you can't take the East Coast out of the boy department: When they predicted snow, what did B go and buy?

Like any good East Coaster--toilet paper!

Breakfast is coming along nicely.

I still haven't decided what color to use for the bag itself; I went to a yarn store in Tel Aviv (in the back of one of the ubiquitous underwear stores) and was looking at colors when B joined me. "But it's all--acrylic," said he in horror. That's my sweetie--a fiber snob in training. Didn't find the 6 or 9 mm circs I needed, either. If I can't find them in Jerusalem next week I'll just have to put in a Patternworks order (horrors!). It'll give me a good excuse to buy that blocking board I've been coveting [evil snicker].

And now, off to cooking. For how many? Beats me. There are 2 soldiers in town who are originally from New Jersey, and if their commander gives them permission they may join us for some or all of the meals, so I'd better cook for 2 extra hungry stomachs.

I can say with some expertise being from New Jersey myself, that we'll pretty much each anything but have specific issues with crappy cheesesteaks and sub-standard tomatoes!

I don't think it'll really snow; it just doesn't feel like one of "those years." My daughter's nervous about having a winter baby, due in a month, G-d willing.
I can't deal with the thought of snow.
