You might have noticed that it's been about 14 days since I last posted. Truly this was not a planned thing. In fact when I was on vacation over Christmas I actually made an outline of blog posts for the entire month of January! Best intentions, and all that!!
Well no matter - I haven't been slouching or vacationing anywhere... life has been just a bit to overwhelming and hectic these past couple of weeks. Work has been incredibly busy with year-end proceedings (always a fun activity). My Molly has been really sick requiring some vet visits and medication and a lot of TLC, and I had a recent ER visit too which is resulting in some eye surgery next week - so all in all - I've been busy!
In all this mess, I have been trying to keep up with the choir, and somehow even managed to get my name nominated for the Vestry (board) at church. I have 2 prayer shawls started, still haven't finished the baby blanket, and really need to complete Molly's warm coat - because in the last few days we have gone from a beautifully mild winter to a typical Manitoba winter.
This morning the temps are in the -40's and we are not expected to warm up much above that, all day long.
So I will revamp that outline of posts and work on some upcoming material over the weekend, and hopefully by Monday be back on track here.
It is a great time to be doing handwork - so hunker down, make yourself some hot coco or tea, grab your needles or a really good book, and enjoy the winter doldrums....
