I was mightily inspired, though. This morning, even though it was cold and windy, I went out and raked out the flower bed along the garage wall and the herb patch by the wood shed. If I was a more clever and productive person, I might use all those coreopsis stems to fashion little brooms because they do remind me of broom bristles. Instead, I will start a knitting project and hope my hands and wrists hold out.
I have discovered that I really did miss some things at our VT house -- my gas stove, my NECCHI sewing machine, and Comcast on Demand. What I truly did not miss -- heavy jacket, cluster flies, and walking in cold, wet, windy weather.
I'll be darned. It is not quite 3:00pm on Thursday, but I do believe the sun is trying to show its face here.
|A spot of blue sky to the east.|
|A bit of brightness through the clouds.|
|Some more blue to the south.|
I feel less wiped out today. I made it to writing group at the library last night, but I can't say I made much of a contribution to the event. I think the cool air and outdoor exercise in the yard was good for me.
