So far behind

I have a bit of a confession to make.  I haven't been listening to any podcasts recently.  At all.  almost a month.

It just felt like I did not have time to catch them all.  I do though.  Tons of time.  That concerns me, so I am starting to put together a concerted effort to catch up.

I did the Savvy Girls Podcast yesterday.  I only missed two of theirs.  The Knitmore Girls?  5.  5 missed.  I plan on catching up today.

If you need me, that is where I will be.  Knitting and listening to podcasts and sipping lovely hot coffee.  Sounds like a lovely day to me.

Well, I am actually rolling pennies.  My sweet husband always threw his pennies and small change on his side table at night.  over the years, he would occasionally pick out the dimes and quarters and nickels, leaving only pennies.  He hadn't done that for a while so I have about 50 dollars in silver change and about 30 pounds of pennies.  Maybe 40.  The box is heavy.  It will be interesting to see how much money this weight of pennies is.

Why now?  I have decided that this collection should be split equally among us.  It should be something we all can enjoy.  So I think that I am going to buy the wine for Christmas dinner with it.  A nice wine.  Something really special that we otherwise wouldn't have. Or something ordinary that we always drank, and a bottle of icewine.  Or Asti Spumante.  It had historical connotations for us, an in joke that only I know.

So I will wrap my pennies, listen to podcasts and sip my coffee.  And then, when days tasks are done, I will knit.

My older son will be seething with envy when he hears you spent a day rolling change! ;-) All in all, it sounds like a great day to me. I spent a little too much time lost in a book this morning. Another decent way to spend some time, I think.

Have fun with the purchase. I agree with Ann on your notes the other day. They were good for me to hear too. GD
