Homework for this week

Our assignment for this week was to talk about what we did on our snow day. The day began with three patronises arriving before 6 am. The first patronis was from the Ministry and it arrived at 4:30 a.m. It was for Mr. Crookshanks telling him that due to the poor conditions all travel was suspended and  floo network would be closed due to the necessity of the fireplaces for actual warmth. The second patronis arrived at 5 a.m. telling us that the primary school for the kids would be closed due to too many mishaps with kids spletching with the cold weather. (I really think it was because they were thinking they would rather be in bed with it nice and warm and was separating from their parents. Parents arriving at the school. Kids arriving home in their beds.) The third patronis was Mr. Crookshanks' secretary letting him know everyone received their patronis and all were informed. That arrived at 5:15 a.m. 

By the time all the patronises disapperated, I couldn't sleep. So instead took the day to finish up homework that was due for History of Muggles, History of Magical Creatures and where to find them. They were both due for completion on Friday. I am glad to say, they are finally done. 

When the assignments were turned in by owl, I sat about cataloging all my new yarns. I have been so busy trying to complete the assignments that I had quite the pile going. I managed to get them all logged into my muggle database called 'Ravelry.' (I really do love that place.) Unfortunately, it became evident that I have way TOO much yarn. So, enough of what I did on our wonderful snow day, off to get busy with my knitting. 

Now, if I could just find those needles that Mrs. Weasley spoke about last Thursday night.....

Saw your comment on my blog. You're right- I am very prompt with my homework. I'd rather do that homework that my reading/writing for my grad school class any day. Can't wait to see the bag

Too much yarn? Is there such a thing?

I really don't miss snow. We've had hardly any over here in Italy. I love that! However, we have a fireplace that's not as appealing to use without the snow outside...
