Yoo hoo! Hello, Mother Nature!   12 comments

I’ll be dating myself on this one, but I think Mother Nature’s needle is stuck.

Forties?  Really?

IT’S JUNE.

And I know the pretty gray skies look so nice with the green trees, but I also happen to think blue skies and bright sunshine look nice with green trees, too.  Remind me again what that looks like?

Today I am wearing my usual skirt and long sleeved t shirt, with tights,  a wool cardigan, and wool socks. After freezing yesterday in more seasonable clothes, I reverted to my winter uniform this morning.  And I am not too warm.

I (almost) wish I was. At least warm enough to take off the sweater.  Come on, Mother Nature, give it a shot.

We won’t even talk about wind chill forecasts for the weekend.

And can someone please tell me why, if we have to endure such cold temps, we can’t get the storm at the same time so that it is all snow??? What is with warming up enough for wintry mix Saturday night?

That is really too much.

It got cold, all of a sudden   10 comments

I suppose not really, but it sure feels like it. The last few days have been very cold, and extremely windy, which makes very cold feel like bitter artic cold.

Good thing I have lot of cowls and shawls and hats and socks, right?  I do need more sweaters though, and that is a fact. Better move one up the queue.  🙂

Today I was huddled at my desk in a wonderful cowl I made a few years ago (with some fabulous handspun yarn I got at Common Ground Fair – it has PEARLS spun into it!) around my neck, my giant gray fluffy Pi shawl wrapped around my shoulders and torso, and my boss cracked up.  I asked him if he wouldn’t mind paying the heating bill.  🙂

But now I am warmer, and have put the shawl away for a time. But not very far away – I feel the draft when the door opens and it does that frequently in the mornings.

 

My knitting is moving right along – slow on this project, as it is one I only work on when away from home (my “mobile” project)

and faster on this one, which I work on each evening.

Just about done with the tenth repeat of the third chart – love the pattern and placing the beads as I go is getting to be not as cumbersome as at first – I am developing a rhythm for that, too. Can’t wait to see what the 4th chart looks like… and the 5th and 6th… 🙂

Yarn peeks over the back of the couch at me, calling me, reminding me that I promised it would be next…and maybe it will be.  But maybe not as well.  I have so many conflicting projects and goals pulling me – slowly and steadily build inventory; knit up the stash and make me some warm things; make more pretty jewelry because I love playing with the beads; try some of the ornament patterns I have bookmarked… which could also be inventory building, right?

 

I barely have time to go to work.  And it is so cold out there, I really don’t want to…

Well, it is finally getting “more seasonable” around here.  The last few mornings, it has been feeling bitter on our morning walks.  Which tells me it has been really warm this fall, because if is about 19 degrees, and that should not feel as bitter as it does!  This morning there was no wind, unlike yesterday, so we were able to enjoy the walk a bit more.  The sky was really lovely, the stars are so bright.  The moon was peeking out from a veil of mist, but the rest of the sky was clear.  I guess that will be changing, as we can expect our favorite “wintry mix” over the next day or so.  It had to happen sometime.
