16 January 2016


Yeah, I'm still here, just quiet due to a week that was maddening, depressing, and exhausting all at the same time.   Seriously there were two days when I came home from work and simply went to bed.  WITHOUT EATING DINNER.  What???

A couple of times I thought maybe I'd post something, but couldn't get myself motivated to do so, and didn't want to whine anymore anyway, so   I do I just waited it out.

Anyway, today is Saturday, and not only Saturday but the Saturday of a long weekend - yay!  I plan to get myself going and in a better frame of mind and the extra day will be more appreciated than usual.

Today we undecorated the Christmas tree, and The Tim took it to be recycled.  It didn't take that long, but it took care of my ambition for the rest of the day.  Tomorrow I'll finish putting the other decorations in boxes, and we'll be finished.  I know lots of people have already had this taken care of for weeks, but Christmastime doesn't officially end here until January 6.  It was time to put things away by now, so it wasn't depressing like it would be if we had to do it sooner.

Other than that, my weekend plans include laundry (because why not, you know?), reading, and knitting.  I have not knit a single stitch since before Christmas Day!  That needs to be remedied, and I'm in the mood.  I did manage to teach a co-worker to knit, so though I was not knitting myself, I was helping her and she did a great job.  She's already itching to work on her next project!  I do wish that sometime I could go to Vogue Knitting Live in NYC, but at the same time, I don't feel bad missing it all that much.  On my list of fiber-related things I'd like to do sometime, going to Rhinebeck ranks higher.

One of the gifts that Santa brought was an "igloo" bed for the kitties.  Generally, they share these things, with occasional fights over who has dibs.  But this one has been claimed for all intents and purposes by Pip, and I swear if he could have the litter box and his food in there, we'd never see him!

As you can see, Jetsam is somewhat dismayed that only one kitty can fit.  :-)

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, and that you have someplace to be cozy.

"Where's my kitty bed?"

Oh yeah, the coming home and going straight to bed. I do that pretty regularly. Usually I take knitting and book with me. Sometimes herbal tea if I have the energy.

I hope your weekend is as restful as it sounds!

Poor Jetsam! He looks so sad.

Hope next week is a better week.

Jetsam does look a bit dismayed. Maybe you need to buy a couple more of those igloos.

So far, Giroux has taken over my knitting project basket (for a bed) and the mesh sweater dryer with the soaking wet sweater drying on it.

I heard Steve say, "Are you supposed to be on that?" There he was. Napping on a damp sweater. So, I moved the sweater, put a beach towel on the dryer and that is his new bouncy bed.

I hope your days will get better! And you will find that perfect knitting project that will get your excitement going again... No matter what the project is - if it makes your heart sing - that is all that matters! And teaching someone to knit - priceless!!

Bridget- Can't Jetsam get an igloo? He looks a bit narked.
