Dazed and Confused
We've been having all the weather events this week. Snow, sleet and rain. Luckily, I like winter so I'm totally okay with the cold and the craziness. My cold is still here, but it's nearly all gone. Everyday I think, today is the day without any symptoms - I'm a positive thinker over all. Seriously though, I feel fine during the day. I had one gym session this week and my trainer said he was 'easing me in'. Nothing felt easy at all, however, it was so good to be exercising.
Frodo and Holly are both dazed and confused. Neither one knows what to think and what to do with each other. The humans (us) don't know what to do either. Sometimes we leash him, sometimes we don't. Here is the truth: Holly seeks him out after he is done torturing (barking at) her. He will finally go under that ottoman to nap, we breathe a sigh of relief and then she goes and pokes at him, starting it all over again. Kids!
My son in law LOVES his sweater. As a life time long knitter, my greatest pleasure is to knit for people who are fantastic gift receivers and show gratitude. He was thrilled the sleeves were long enough! Gah - Such sweetness!
So you might be wondering what is on my needles. Well, simple stuff - I have one skein of that red heart scrubby cotton so I'm knitting mindless dishcloths enjoying a free brain. I read while knitting those, currently on Kindle The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny. I'm a fan of her series.
I cast on this cowl pattern again. I wrote this pattern years ago and it is available as the Balancing Act Cowl here on my blog and here on Ravelry for free. As I mentioned previously, I can wrap this cowl three times around on a cold blustery day, yet it looks wonderful wrapped twice on a not so cold day.
Even though we are knee deep in the winter season, I was day dreaming yesterday of day trips to do in the spring and summer. I daydream every February imaging: day hikes, picnics, and seeing more of our local area. I have a list somewhere and could easily add more activities. Of course, I'd be seeing my kids in their towns too.
I'm writing one day early since tomorrow is super busy. I hope you have a nice weekend planned and lots of knitting or crafting to keep you busy.
