I thought I'd do a post while waiting for Sock Wars to begin. The pattern and dossier on our targets are supposed to be emailed out sometime today, so I am anxiously awaiting the information so I can get started. I just don't want to be "killed" right off the bat.
I had to go up to Chanute, Kansas, (my birthplace!) yesterday to take care of some things involving my grandparents' estate.
It's about a two-hour drive from Tulsa on a mostly two-lane highway and you always get stuck behind a farmer on a tractor going really slow.
It was rainy and chilly out yesterday, and I drove the whole way through intermittant rainshowers and sprinkles. I love that kind of weather, but only when I'm cozy at home. While driving, it just makes me sleepy.
I know that western Kansas is flatter than this part of the state (and, if you have Google Earth, take a look at western Kansas. What is with all the circles? If anyone knows, please tell me!), but, having grown up in Kentucky, it still amazes me how very flat is it out there. I do find this landscape very intriguing though, and it was beautiful yesterday under gray skies, and just the slightest tinge of fall colors.
