Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

It's happened again

I woke up this morning to see more snow. Yuck, yuck, yuck!

There isn't much, and it's melting even as I type, but the weather gurus predict a bit more of the flakey stuff tonight.

So for all you folks in Oz, here's another shot of the whiteness. By the way, DH thinks we may be able to afford a trip to Australia in March of 2010 for my 60th birthday. What should we do and where should we go?

Meantime, I'm knitting more fingerless mitts. I pulled into the gas station on
Wednesday morning, with the air temperature at about 38. The nice man pumping my gas (it's against the law to pump your own gas in Oregon) had no gloves, and was standing with his hands in his armpits. So I peeled my fingerless gloves off my hands and gave them to him. What the heck. It's my job to keep people warm.

    Wow! I am so blown away by your generous act. I'm sure that man will never forget it either.
    I traveled to Australia in late April of 2000. The month was significant because it was heading into late autumn there and the temperature wasn't as warm as we'd expected. Our visit was confined to New South Wales, but it was amazing. If not for their strict immigration codes we would have considered moving there.

    You are a saint!

    Don't worry about the snow. It will go away. Just appreciate the beauty of the fine crochet of white in the tree branches, knowing that it will not, can not, last more than a day. (And in the mean time I will be loving it for the very same reasons.)

    That's really sweet-- and really adorable. I visit the same McDonalds almost every day--I'm often tempted to gift them with a pair to put in their drive thru jackets-- bless you for following through.

    Thank you for the photos of the beautiful snow.

    I was given a book mark (yeah, I know, I don't read ... stop laughing!!!), anyhow, as I was saying : I was given a book mark a few years back with a beautiful inscription that suits you and DH to a tee :

    The hand of the giver is never empty.

    You are both wonderful.

    2010 - I've got time to plan. You two are active people so will have to organise exciting and interesting places to visit which will include hands on experiences.

    Cheers xx

    Bless you, dearest Roxie, for your unhesitating generosity and openness. Yes, indeed, you and DH are a beautiful duo!

    You ARE a giver. It's against the law to pump your own gas here in NJ, too. We're rather proud of that. We're NJ, it doesn't take much to make us proud!

    Man, I love snow! Even more now that we have a snowblower. It's so beautiful, plus all the mosquitoes die.

    Australia, wow! We are going to do that someday.....

    Oooh you're (hopefully) coming over!! YAY!!

    It's a huge place - there are so many wonderful places to visit - Kakadu, Great Barrier Reef, Tasmania's wilderness. For culture you've got to visit Melbourne and Sydney. And you've got to visit Canberra, which is also the national capital has has tons of great attractions! Plus a bunch of your knitting friends ;)

    How funny about not being allowed to fill your own car with petrol ... never heard of a rule like that before!

    I'm sure your generosity will not be forgotten. You do so much charitable knitting - this is just a little closer to home :-)
