Oh, sure, the Super Bowl is a thrill a minute for some, but for Middle Earth, snow is the most exciting thing in the world. Even 1-2″ is an event. The weatherdoofs will have us (or, somebody) worked up so that even a small amount of snow will upset everyone!!! I wish somebody would give them some librium/valium something to calm their jagged nerves. I suppose if you only predict sun/clouds/rain, then snow would be more exciting. But, I am more than a tad sick of the hysteria surrounding weather. Of course, if they divert our attention with “weather events” then, maybe we won’t notice all the other crappy stuff going on. End of current rant. No guarantee there will not be another.
I did not get much knitting or spinning done this weekend because I was working a bit on housekeeping. Mom’s room for one and it’s not gonna be a small job. That, plus cooking and making pup food and washing and running errands. You know. I was busy with not much to show. At least, I dug in. That has been the hardest part for me.
So, this is my second week of 3 days of work. It is weird. After 37 years, working only 3 days is weird. Not horrible, but weird. I’m not certain I can or want to get used to it. Hopefully, things will change for the better by the end of the month.
I have spent a bit more time on Ravelry. Not alot, but a bit. I miss so much because I don’t spend much time on it. I love looking at the patterns and friend’s activities, but otherwise, I don’t know much about it. I have tried to read forums and everything, but they aren’t interesting enough for me to check every single day. It must be me. I know so many people that spend mucho time on Ravelry and are totally in the groove. How much time do you have to spend on it to feel like you know what’s going on? Inquiring minds would like to know.
It appears I’m a bit dull today. I apologize. I think it’s just the winter doldrums. At least the sun shown Saturday and Sunday. That helped, but I am ready for spring. Completely ready.
To send you on your way this Monday morning, here’s my soundtrack of the day…..Mr. Bob Dylan singing one my favorites of his “It’s Alright Ma” (I’m only bleeding”.
Have a wonderful Monday.
