Ankles, Shopping Carts and Snow

Before we start talking about yarn I would like to talk about my other favorite subject........ME!

I have a phobia. I don't think about my phobia everyday, but when the conditions are right, it scares the (construction language) out of me. My phobia can only take place in places like grocery stores and big box stores.

I am terrified of someone getting behind me with their shopping cart and running over the backs of my ankles.

Oh, I know its cute when you let your toddler push the cart around the store to keep them entertained. I know that sometimes your grandmother can get a little absent minded looking for lemon-pepper. I know that some grandfathers will run over your ankles just because they are in a hurry. (Not me, but other grandfathers.)

I just need you to know when I hear you sneaking up behind me with a shopping cart, I (one) start to panic a little: (two) I'm planning my retaliation.

With that in mind, I found out this past week, I have a new phobia. The condition were perfect for a new phobia. You're going to have to stay with me for a while.

It has been extremely dry this spring in Northern Colorado. We have been in desperate need of moisture. However, a person must be careful what they wish for.

Last weeks weather forecast was calling for a rain/snow mix later in the week. I was thinking that would be a good thing. Until I awoke Thursday morning to find a blanket of snow outside and no electricity in the house.
