Self Image

Sometimes I feel really dumb.  Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Other times, though, I feel really smart.  Brilliant in fact.  One of those times is today.

I am teaching at Road to California this week -- Wednesday through Saturday.  Conventional wisdom says that if I am teaching on Wednesday, I should fly in on Tuesday.

I have lived my entire life in the northeast United States.  I can also read a calendar.  This combined wisdom made me certain that flying out of New York in January was a risky endeavor.  I decided to fly to California one day early, just in case the weather messed up my plans (like it did earlier this month).  I had a mostly uneventful flight yesterday and am looking forward to working from my hotel room all day today.  I'm going to enjoy every second of today, because this is the weather back home:

If I had left home this morning, I would have driven to the airport in New York traffic in the snow, paced at aiport waiting for them to cancel my flight, and it would have gone on from there.

I.  Am.  Brilliant.

You certainly are! Enjoy your time away from the slush and the panicking hordes.

You.certainly.are. Debby! :) It was a very wise move, indeed! Enjoy the California weather while we're watching the snow coming down and the roads getting white and it's not even noon! :) Not that I complain, because it's a snow day for me and I love snow anyway!

Gee, can you tell I don't read comments before I leave mine? :))))

Warmer California weather would be nice today. Snow started late afternoon here but it's making uproar that now. I was lazy most of the day so can't say I got much done. Back to making the backing for a finished top...
