March is still a lion

You know the expression, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb?  Well, it’s mid-March and it’s still a lion here in NL.  It sure felt like that all day at work today.  We’ve recently moved into a new office building and they are still sorting out the environmental issues like heat and cold.  It was cold.  All day.  People were walking around in their coats.  That’s no way to treat your most important company resource – PEOPLE!

Here’s a photo I took from my desk.  You can see a bit of reflection of the other windows.  It was about 5:30pm.  All the construction below will one day be high rise buildings and we will lose our lovely view.  I’ll enjoy it while I can.  You can see the central station on the right, and the tops of St. Nicolaas Church in the middle of the photo.

Anyway, biking home today, after being cold all day, I realized that the weather had become even colder during the course of the day.  It might even snow tonight.  I decided to stay home tonight and not make SnB night.  I just want to be warm for the rest of the day!

    The picture is amazing. The busy ground, and the smoky, cold sky just look beautiful. I’m still learning some basic photography skills, so I’m kind of in awe of people who can take sweet pictures like that. Um, anyway, it’s very nice. And I never heard that saying about March coming in like a lion….that’s very cool.

    I’m a little confused about your advice on my sweater—should I rip back until the front is the same size as the back? (I haven’t kept track of the rows, btw, I’m very bad)

    First you have to count the rows to know if you have the same number on the front as on the back. Just count the stitches going up. One stitch per row. Then you will know if you have to rip anything, or knit more, and by how much.

    Maart roert zijn staart. After reading your post I finally realize what animal the tail belongs to.
