I skied!

And fun was had by all. Much better than Tim's experience (from the comments) skiing into a lake. But admittedly less exciting.

Here is how well I liked the Nezumi hat I made myself out of handspun purchased on DeStash:

I think I need to make myself another one that's just a bit larger, though. I kept having to tug to keep my ears warm.

On the other hand, I came home to sad news — my cousin Gene, a poet of some repute, who I was close to, passed away suddenly a couple of days ago. One of his more recent pieces which I like a lot is here. I'm still kind of stunned that he's gone; I saw him just last week. I'm waiting to hear about the funeral details, but I might disappear to Albuquerque for a couple of days.

You'd never catch me skiing, but it looks like you had a great time. And that Nezumi hat is adorable!

As for the other news - let's just keep the Virtual Hugs Pipeline wide open, okay?

V, I am so sorry :'(. You and your family has had more than your share of loss. I am also stunned and saddened for you. I am thinking of you. Thank you for sharing Gene's poem.
