Finding Comfort, Finished Socks and Focusing
I finished the socks for my husband yesterday-done! I'd like to have a pair of socks on the needles at all times so today I'll dig through the "stash" and find the future pair to be. My knitting has been productive and comforting through these cold cold days. Isn't it strange to find weather in the 20 degree range warm? It's all perspective.
Frodo hasn't been feeling himself. He's been hiding under the ottoman, so toasty and warm, we should all have an ottoman to climb under for comfort. I did take him to the vet and his Lyme test was very high. He has tested positive for Lyme twice before in his past. So he's on medicine again and we wait for the wellness to begin. I believe he will be enjoying his ottoman days until the weather warms up.
All those beautiful deer that walk through our property come at a price. He is on monthly flea and tick preventative and we search every day for those nasty little ticks. Unfortunately he's a tick magnet. I'm thankful for our vet-she is the best and I know Frodo will feel better soon.
Isn't he a beauty? When the rabbits start emerging from their hiding spots, he will be ready to obsess over catching just one wee one. Did I just yearn for spring? Gosh...well it's for the health of my dog.
I've been focused on enjoying these cold days-the inside activities, the emergence of light. Can you see the difference? I love standing outside in the cold and feeling the sunlight on me, the angle ever changing. My house seems brighter in the afternoon. The photo above would have been impossible a month ago. Good bye January, hello February.
