Among the Living (barely)

These last two months have been the biggest challenge:

  • Snow
  • More Snow
  • It's even snowing today
  • Temps rarely even as high as freezing.
  • Shoulder/Neck problems (getting better, but still challenging)
  • Mom unexpectedly in the hospital
  • Mom back home, but "physical therapy" consisted of one visit and a sheet of exercises to do (great follow-up VNA - NOT!)
  • Husband has the blues over not being employed
  • Dog vomit
  • Cats want attention
  • Knitted top lost to major gauge swatch lie
  • Husband has bronchitis
  • House is a breeding ground for germs
  • Now I'm getting sick.

On the plus side, my "Knitting Olympics" consists of several events, of which I have completed one so far:
  • Sock Moguls (finishing the 2nd of a pair of waffle socks) -- DONE!
  • Cross-Country Sleeve Slog (finishing the sleeves of a top-down cardigan)
  • Figured Lace Skating (finishing up the kernel scarf, which is quite lovely)
Considering I'm near to being on the injured/sick list, I'll be surprised if I get much more than the sleeves done on the cardigan. Hmmmm.... maybe I should switch events and just knit a pair of socks again. Or a 1x1 rib scarf. Yeah, that could be good. Something that matches my nearly brainless state.

I'll be glad when winter is over!

Oh, this winter has been extra snowy all over. We have had snow, and more snow and still more snow. The temperature hasn't risen above zero celsius for months. But I've managed to stay healthy. But my grandma died last Thursday. In a way it is a relief, but still I miss her.
