Someone hurry and block the entry to Punxsutawney Phil’s burrow! This is the first day in a long while that it hasn’t rained for a portion or for all of the day. The sunshine has shown me what a disastrous condition my poor yard is in. High winds, loads of rain, and all the frost has taken its toll on my wonderful friends. Some of them look like they have been run over several times, while others are so burnt from the frost, and then there are the warriors who are picture perfect no matter what. The beauty of nature, so resilient.
I look out the back doors and hear the call of my friends! It is still too early to get much done, I don’t want to have a late cold spell harm any of them. So, just like the poor neighbors dog, Boomer, who has been whining and crying during these cold days, I have to pretend I don’t hear a thing! Heartbreakingly callous, I can hear you say. Too true! lol I am not ready to give up the precious few hours I have to stitch my day away!
Progress is being made on so many projects! Tennis matches to watch, Duke basketball games to catch, and curling up with a good book to read are important task that must be performed daily! Ha Ha Ha, it just feels so good to burrow in a warm afghan, curl up in my recliner, and see my stitchery projects start to come to life.
Kacie’s Christmas stocking is taking shape! The toe is finished and we are moving over to the heel and then, Up, Up, and Up we go. I sectioned off the pattern into 10 areas, one for each of the next 10 months. I finished up January early and am working my way through February now. I give myself time off for good behavior and reward myself with crocheting my owl afghan.
So, some one delay Punxsutawney Phil PLEASE! I need more “me” time…..Cyn
