Monday morning, painful

Here I sit at the computer again, thinking how to start this day out, It's weird weather again. Gloomy and gray and breezy. Suppose to clear up by midday ,will see.
 Woke up this morning with 9.5 on the Richter scale for a headache. Nasty migraines, still have plenty of stuff that needs to be gotten done before I head for the dark room and my bed.This headache doesn't like noise so the house is pretty much quiet except for the ticking of a clock and the furnace turning on and off. Very sensitive hearing today. Did take Mary to the Chiropractor, told him that I may seem him later on. Dr. Tom is real gentle with me , he knows I am afraid to have my mid -back adjusted , (I have had a heart valve replacement and my chest is wired shut).
  On the knitting front, working on my first pair of socks and a my umpteenth hat. Well because of head pain I'm making this short and sweet. I 'll talk to you later.

Friday, snow,, interesting.

I am sitting at my desk in the kitchen, working on a grocery list and my posting , when Archie comes in and bats the water bowl sending water all over the place, and then his food dish, (sorry cat, same food as yesterday, dry mix) and than tries to cover them up by scratching the floor in front of his food dish. (sorry , still see it). Concerning Archie, I came down stairs this morning to find a ball of Sugar and Cream hat I had left over from knitting a dish cloth strung out from the Living room through the Dining  room and into the Kitchen, said cat looking at me like "whoops I been caught sorry about that, actually it was Spazzy"
   Spazzy's place to eat her treats is on my desk, Archie leaves her alone there so she can eat in peace, she doesn't mind me sitting here working on the computer , she just flicks her tail in my face if I am bothering her.
It's snowing out now, just a dusting but the wind is picking up and the temps are dropping, now , I think I would like to be with Stephanie Pearl-Mcphee in the Dominican Republic, nice and toasty, with warm breezes and sunshine, well here I sit in the "frozen tundra" we call Wisconsin, sigh. Darling Daughter Sarah is laughing at me from Austin,oh well , wait till this summer.
 I have chosen two projects to work, for the next month, year, whatever it takes me, a sweater  vest  called Azteca from "Creative Knits"done in a heathered green and socks, oh , hmm the issue the sweater is in March of 2012.Back to the needles and such, also today is Malt Friday, making a chocolate malt for hubbys lunch, personally hot chocolate would be better, it's cold out there.Well TTFN.

6 more weeks of winter.

News Flash!!..... Punxsutawney Phil has declared there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Oh well , we will enjoy our January thaw and get back to winter next week. More to come.....
Found a good buy on sock yarn at Joanne Fabrics in Madison, I called the previous day and asked if they had this type and colorway, the gal went and looked and said that they didn't have it, something just didn't sit right with me, I thanked her and  finished what I was doing.The next day Mary and I headed in for some grocery shopping, and since I was in the neighborhood, I stopped in at that Joannes and looked at their sock yarn,lo and behold there was the brand and the colorway I wanted. hmmmm. I kept quiet about it till now. Of course, I bought the yarn and a few more other skeins. You know sock yarn doesn't count toward stash.
   Well I admitted defeat and the critters never did bring back my MP3 player hubby ordered me a new one from Overstock, should be here Tuesday,  I miss having it where I can listen to the radio anytime I want. Kinda reminds me of my first transistor radio, I remember carrying it around for a long time when I was a kid.You had only one ear phone and that wasn't the best quality. Well stopping for now have to make a trip to the local meat market and grocery store. TTFN.
