SNOW!!!



I know the whole northeast is basically on lockdown but we're JUST below that terrible line on the map keeping the worst of it around Richmond and further north. We got about an inch and none of it stuck to the roads, just the grass and the cars (and, something I found amusing, street signs going in one direction on the road because of the wind angle last night... hope nobody's looking for a certain street this morning!). Basically nothing got shut down here, but we expect ten inches next Monday (which is practically unheard of around here... we freak out if one inch sticks, so ten should be... let's call it "interesting").

Ipo and I met many new friends - from a distance - one morning this past week on our way into work.

We also went to Norfolk but I had to hurry out of there or risk being stuck in an hour's worth of traffic. Tomorrow we're going back for another meeting and we should be done an hour before we were last time, so we might have some time to look at some points of interest before we head back to work in VB.

I also found out that I get to go to Portland OR to present at a conference (plus my mom lives there so I'll be having all sorts of fun) but it's three weeks after Ipo has to be on his way home.  Undecided I always get to go to the coolest places BETWEEN LV swaps!

Ipo and I went to William and Mary yesterday so I could go to a training. We didn't have much time to explore the beautiful campus because I had to get back to work, but we did see the library of course:

Ipo isn't having a ton of fun so far this week (classes are back in session so work is very busy) but we have some fun coming up during the next few days. In the meantime, he's mostly just hanging out on my desk watching me work:

I'm glad Anana is out getting some fresh air and exercise! That's more than I can say for Ipo and myself. We were planning to visit a family friend today between errands, but it turns out that he is in the hospital as of very early this morning, so that will have to wait for a while. In the meantime, we're going to get a head start on some cosplay pieces for May! Photos hopefully to follow soon.

We have a 3D printer in the library now! It isn't available to the public yet, as we're learning how to use it and getting trained on various aspects of it. Ipo helped me make a nameplate as my first attempt:

I know I've been a bit absent for the holidays, but mostly because I was sick leading up to Christmas (Ipo makes a great nurse).

There are photos of him helping with the Christmas decorations on the blog:

Every year, we make a big fondue dinner for our friends for New Year's Eve (I highly recommend it... fondue is a long, drawn-out meal by its very nature, so it lasts just long enough to leave us time to pour champagne and find the right channel just before midnight). Anyway, Ipo helped us with that too:



The night was very busy so that was the last photo of the year (don't want an LV falling into melted chocolate!) but we're ready for an exciting new year!

I promise more Christmas photos later, but I had to share this one... Husband is working tomorrow (early) so we did our presents this morning. And he surprised me with my very favorite necklace from phoenixfiredesigns!!!



Beautiful work as always, PFD!

(No idea why I'm sideways but it'll have to do... I'm not quite 75% done with a cross-stitched gift I'm giving my dad tomorrow morning... yikes!)

Ipo and I had Hanukkah dinner with the in-laws last night! (Personally, my favorite thing in the entire world.)


(Look at those beautiful latkes!!!)

We also went to see The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies, 8pm on Tuesday (the earliest viewing I could find anywhere around here), but first, we spent Monday and Tuesday watching all the extended editions of the first five movies in the Middle Earth collection:

Ipo went with us to a holiday party with friends on Saturday, but unfortunately, my phone didn't take very good photos. We did get a lovely view of the Blue Ridge Mountains on the way back, though:



We also spent some time working on a Christmas present:



We took this week off work (we were supposed to be flying to Arizona and driving back, but there is no longer a need for that trip, so we have new plans) so there's lots of fun to be had for the next few days! Although today is staying in, cleaning up, working on Christmas presents, and watching all the LotR movies in preparation for tomorrow night...  Grin
