OMG It Is Cold here

Today the temp only got to 19 degrees. As you can see from the Forecast at a Glance, tomorrow is supposed to be in the 40's while Sunday is supposed to be 60's. It is said that if you do not like the weather in Kansas City, wait just a little and it will change. Perfect example. Hopefully, next week will be great weather for me to start back to work.

Today was my drug test for the new contract. Also included is a background check. Boy, you feel like a criminal just trying to get a job. Times sure have changed, and not for the better in come cases. There was a young man there at the same time getting a court ordered drug test. Evidently he had been doing this for some time. He was on a first name basis with the lab techs. He did not need to be told the procedure. It was kind of sad, he was a nice looking young name.

I received some new books from Crafter's Choice. The Best of Interweate Knits, HandKnit Style II and Knit Kimono. I have had my eye on these books for a while and here was a BOGO sale one. Of course, this weekend there was a $9.99 sale so I ordered the other books I wanted since they were on sale. I saved $70.

I especially like the Knit Kimono. There are a couple of things I want to queue. HandKnit Style has some great things also. I am very please with all three selections. I have added them to my Ravelry library.
