I’m done with this winter.
Last week we lost power for a few days. My brain became more fogged than usual and I started shifting to the left. I guessed I was getting hypothermia in my own apartment so I laid under a couple of down duvets until clearer thoughts came back… if you could call them that.
N keeps getting snow days from work; I don’t since I work from home.
We’re also sick and I’ve been feeling too crappy to make stuff.
I used to be used to being snowed in from time to time.
I’d take it as an opportunity to do wonderful things like take a bunch of random knitting needles I’ve gathered from thrift shops and yard sales –
And pair them up.
And of course put them back in the old pasta tin I keep them in and they jumble themselves up once more.
I almost never use straight needles anymore, at least the long ones, but I like them as artifacts.
My red Formica table is in storage and I miss it.
I made a little heat-able pillow filled with cherry pits a few years ago.
I love cherries and eat pounds of them each June and early July.
It’s about 6″ x 8″ and filled with nearly a pound of pits. It’s great for warming knitting-sore wrists or cold hands.
I’d like another, but I don’t think I want to go through boiling and scrubbing and scouring and sanding pits again.
It’s useless when the power goes out too.
*That picture isn’t even the most recent snow – I’ve given up, I can’t be bothered, I don’t want to have any documentation of this sh*t anymore…
**This doesn’t look right, seems like it should be the other way around, but that didn’t look right either and this is the direction I took it – deleting and re-attaching the variously oriented pics was the high point of the day.
