I love a good Halloween scare but this is crazy!

We are hunkering down here at Fit for the Finish Line Headquarters for a serious storm. Josh was out of town this weekend, so I did some essential storm prep.


In addition to the usual essentials I whipped up some pumpkin cranberry scones, and some blondies (a personal favorite)


These aren’t exactly distancer runner treats, but desperate times calls for desperate measures! My only hope is that we don’t finish off the blondies before the storm actually arrives!

I’ve also been working on my latest knitting project. Here it is displayed as if it is an essential part of my living room.


Eventually it will be one of those lovely loopy cowls that I imagine will keep me warm. Do you want to see it up close? I’ll answer that. Yes.


This has taken me so dang long to knit! It’s because I am slow, and I haven’t been a good knitter lately (I’ve been infrequent at best) and it’s colorwork (or colourwork? I’ve never been clear as to whether I ought to default to the British spelling) so I’m slow. I started it this past summer with the intention of being able to finish before it gets super cold. Looks like that won’t happen – but oh well! At the very least, even if we lose power I will have something to occupy my time!

How do you prepare for a big storm?
