Sometimes I Don't Like Public Transportation

Don't get me wrong...I am so lucky to be able to get so many places by bus and train, so easily. But easily doesn't always mean quickly. I gave a financial aid presentation at a local high school last night. We finished up a little after 8:30, but by the time I got home, it was almost 10:00. I just missed a train, which meant I missed my connecting bus by 5 minutes and had to wait 25 minutes for another one. Had I been driving, I'd have been home in 20 minutes.

Sigh. The things we do to decrease our carbon footprint.

I thought I'd share with you some photos of the fog in Wisconsin Sunday. Gretchen and I left Madison at about noon and headed home. The fog was thick and dense. Fortunately, we made it home okay. At about 2:30 p.m. Sunday, there was a 100 car pile-up on I90 near Madison.



Knitting is going well. I finished up the back of the Ribby Cardi and have begun the sleeves. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll have enough of my contrasting color for the sleeves. I brought the label with me and hope to be able to track some down. I saw some promising leads on Ravelry yesterday! Wish me luck!


One thing that made me sad about getting home so late was that I just wanted to go to bed. Poor Zoey. She was so chatty and seemed to want some lap time, but I just couldn't do it. At least I cleaned out her litter box. Yup...I'm becoming one of those crazy cat ladies.

Here are some photos. Zoey the Cat is very tactile. She loves different textures. When I used to visit Matt and Gretchen, she would always sit on my suitcase. She also loves to sit on jeans.

And of course, a warm basket of laundry is irresistible.

But just think how much you are reducing your carbon footprint.
