Let's just cut through the chase. It's winter. It's awful!
Now, to the good stuff.
I finished the hat and mitts for Shelley. Just need to get into the mail. I am now working on a pair of socks for a friend. I hope she likes the color. It isn't in her normal color range, but this yarn has bamboo in it. I think with her foot issues, it would be a comfort. Plus it is microbacterial.
I finally got back to the sweater that has taken too long. That's it's new name. I am working on the decreases at the shoulder area. I just want it done. I like the rugged, rustic quality of this one. It isn't all fine and pretty. It is a basic top-down raglan cardigan, made with rustic tweedy yarn, and it is going to be a hard working sweater. I am ashamed I have just gotten tired and put it down so many times.
I have been weaving a teeny bit. I got a new chair, and I think that will help. I just can't seem to sit and focus. I like the way it is happening, but it isn't happening fast.
I have a treadmill now and I am walking every day. It was a challenge to figure out my pace without getting my heart rate racing. I am actually walking so much slower than my normal pace outside or in a hurry inside. I have decided to walk to Memphis. It is going to take a long, long time. I made it to West Fork and I am now walking down Highway 71 to Brentwood. Brentwood is just a wide spot in the road, but there is still a community there. I am heading to Winslow in the next two days.
The wild kitty did not come in to eat last night. That seems strange to me. I hope he is alright.
The birds are eating fast and furious since we had this cold snap. I fill all five feeders twice a day. I have run out of suet, and the woodpeckers are not happy.
I spotted a Hairy Woodpecker the other day. I have never seen them here in the time I have lived here. I am happy they are moving in the neighborhood. I like a variety.
Noodles has been mostly indoor kitty the last couple of days. When it is icy and wet and cold, he prefers to stay in. He definitely is getting older. I spotted some chipmunks gathering seeds on the ground the other day. So he hasn't completely killed them all yet.
I may have my electric spinner sold. I will know in a week whether she has her money together. I hope it will go. It needs someone to use it and love it and care for it.
I have been cooking a lot in the crock pot and putting meals away in the freezer. I just am not inspired to cook much anymore. It isn't very inspiring, but it plentiful. I just had lunch of scrambled eggs with cheese and onion. Not inspiring, but warm and tasty.
I think if we had sunshine, I would not be so gloomy.
Just to check in and touch base. Nothing new or exciting going on. Just my new walking program.
