Honestly it has been a busy couple of weeks. I have had a couple blogs that I wanted to get too but time got away from me.
|Sunny California! - California Adventures!|
I had a trip planned between Christmas and New Years to Anaheim California. I mentioned earlier in December my drama with my flights. Since that point, the flight situation got a bit interesting.
The original plan was for my Dad to take me to the airport, it snowed on the 26th of December. We got about 6 inches of snow rapidly overnight and Dad is not a fan of driving in the snow. We were going to maybe use my car since it has all wheel drive, but we panicked half way to the airport and he jumped out to take a bus back to the house. I continued on and drove myself to the airport.

Once checked in, and through security the rest of the evening went as planned. The flight out was uneventful, though I was by the latrine the whole time. I will leave that experience to your imagination.
|Me Trying to Find Some of the Students|
Overall, the first 2 days were workshops for the students and alumni the the last 2 days were the legislation meeting. In between, there was one night that was less regimented and we went to Disney's California Adventures.
|Nothing like drinking from a traffic cone. :)|
|Who doesn't love Roz!|
After Disney, the legislation dictated the rest of the time in California. I knit on the floor to keep myself occupied and got 1.5 Justice League Filler Squares done. Nice and easy knitting while listening to debate.

Now for a small amount of bad news, while in Anaheim my Grandfather passed away. He was 86 and just didn't recover from a procedure to remove fluid from his lung due to his congestive heart failure. He passed away peacefully and we buried him on 1/3/2013. While I am mourning his loss, I know he is at peace.
Sorry for the sad news but I wanted to catch up and share my adventures in California. I had originally intended to meet up with Tami from Tami's Amis Blog (where I link up on WIP Wednesday and FO Friday) but she was sick with the flu. Maybe next time.
