On the Mend

This has been the most stubborn, dastardly cold I've had in quite some time. Each time I thought I was feeling better, I would do a bit of stuff, like clean up a winter's accumulation of dog leavings before they thaw, and whomp! I'd be reduced to an exhausted puddle again. Today I feel like I've finally turned the corner. As well I might considering that I took to my bed for the entire weekend (figuratively, I was actually on the couch).


My constant companion through this awful time has been Spectra. It required little mental effort, yet provided entertainment and fun. I hope it will warm the neck of my youngest son, the Renaissance man I call him. He has expressed interest, and even declared it cool. So maybe some good will come of my being sick.

  2. It looks wonderful! I'm glad you are feeling better. This year we've been on top of things, with dog poop, but probably only because we didn't have a lot of snow, and I was nagging my son every day to do his share. :o)

  3. Ooh, I love your Spectra! Mine's only a little over halfway done, I think. I think the way it does that beautiful drapey, spiraly thing is so pretty.

  4. I am glad you are finally feeling better! That scarf is lovely. If your son doesn't want it I will take it!

    I did the dog clean-up thing this week too. Now that we have the new puppy I have to be more diligent. He will just plod right through the piles left on the ground, totally oblivious.
