Hello everyone! I am sorry to have been so wishy washy with my blogging. I can't ever remember a time that I have felt so rotten, for so long! A full week after going to the doctor, I was still miserable! I tried to get in to be seen on Thursday, but there were no available appointments. I knew that I could go to Urgent Care and wait to be seen, but I didn't have the energy to drag myself the 12 miles away, and wait. I had a nurse call me with some over the counter meds that he thought would help me. And help they did. By Saturday I was really feeling much better, and more so today. In fact, I must be better, because Geeps and I went grocery shopping and I spent some time in the kitchen cooking.The ironing however, is another story. It is becoming a huge pile. All of the past two weeks, I would only iron one shirt and pant a day for Greg to wear to work.
I did knit though. I made Hannah her Little Red Riding Hood.
I am working on a soft squishy cowl now. It is done in K2, P2, all the way throughout. I am using super bulky yarn.
I am learning to make socks too. I had a friend show me how to use DPN's and I did a pair of tube socks with no heel. Perfect for wearing around the house. But I wanted to learn how to make a proper pair of socks. VeryPinkKnits.com has a wonderful series of Youtube tutorials that takes you through it, one step at a time. I followed these, but had not purchased her pattern. So considering I had no pattern to work from, just the tutorials, and some guessing, I was pleased with the outcome.
The weather has been a sizzling 90+ degrees for the past few days. I went ahead and put some Spring things on the porch.
I had this very same set of sunny yellow flowered dishes when we got married 35 years ago. I had to snatch them up. I have no idea whatever happened to the ones I had? This was only a set of 3, but I will find more in my searching.
I also got this cute little bowl with cherries on it.
I also go this nifty wooden lap desk that is partially seen here in the photo. While I was cleaning it off, I somehow allowed the wire stand that holds the table at a tilt for reading, to slam closed on my thumb. It hurt so bad I wanted to cry!
Doesn't look bad, but boy did it hurt!
I got my Spring boxes down from the rafters, but didn't have the pep to put my things all out. I only brought a couple of things into the house. One was this carrot runner I quilted several years ago. It was a quilt as you go pattern. Very simple, and cute.
Nothing too exciting going on around here. Just trying to take it easy so I can get myself back to normal. I am chomping at the bit to put my garden in. I haven't done a thing in preparation yet. Hopefully I will be up to it next weekend.
Greg has come down with what I had now. We have been sick since January! As much as I hated the fact that we didn't get much of a winter, I have to admit, I am happy to see the longer days, and the weather nice enough to be outside so much. I am solar powered, after all. However, that being said, I am not really ready for 90+ just yet. I wish it could stay around 80!
I am trying to keep up with all of you out there!
