Bad Blogger

Thanks for all of the comments you've been leaving!! Y'all know I love them. hehe! Why, yes, Christina, that was Mario on the cookie. My little artists!

I've been a bad blogger. Sorry. The mood in my house is making me depressed and not much fun to be around. I haven't felt like doing much at all. Not even read blogs! Actually, I want to, I just don't get around to it .... I don't know .... winter's killing me!!

I have so many knitting projects that I want to do and that I want to start, but there's no time. I've been knitting some squares that are plain, and at first it was nice, peaceful knitting, but it has turned a bit boring.

When my boys were really little my mother made them some Granny Square afghans. MM's was crib sized, and SP's was toddler bed sized. Well, SP is over six foot tall, and his blanket is a bit short. LOL When they graduated to twin sized beds, I knitted some extra squares and made the blankets bigger. Now that SP is in an even bigger bed, his feet stick out of his blanket. I'm knitting some squares for each side, and then in the corners I will pick up stitches from the squares and knit mitered squares. It will look good, and keep him warm, but I wish it would get done quicker.

We got some warmer weather (40s-50s f) for a couple of days, but it's back into the 30s, now. :( Look at the difference one week made on the Bay! I love the fog, but I have Cabin Fever, or Spring Fever, or something! I think everybody in this house does! Everyone is cranky and depressed. Urgh!!!! I need winter to be over!!!!

Ok, I'm going to run the kids to school real quick . . . . Be right back.



I'm back, and I was wrong about the temperature out there. It's 23 degrees f., and if you didn't know, it's cold!


I have to take a quick shower, and go do some data entry stuff for the neighbors. Hope everyone, everywhere is feeling a lot better than I am!!

A little sunshine will work wonders. Spring is just around the corner. Hang in there.

Every year around this time, I start (yeah right, start) to go absolutely crazy! I need me some warmth and sunshine. I noticed one good thing, though - your Days until Summer ticker is down to double digit numbers :)

Mindy said...

Yep, think warm thoughts. We just had a teaser of spring with 70s and 80s, but today back to reality. I was great to open the house and play outside. I even consented to playing a little baseball with my youngest.

I can't wait to see the modified blankets.

LOL but turth be told i knit even when things go right.

Hey, it looks like we'll have to throw in an extra knitting day, just to get you out of the house. That always makes me feel better, anyway =) Doing anything tomorrow morning? Bring some sticks and string...

It's a bad time of year for sure. just remember, "in like a lion, out like a lamb". I love the story of the afghans.

Larjmarj said...

Actually I am in the same boat, and it's a boat that I find myself in every year at this time. No motivation, slightly to moderately depressed and feeling FAT. Bleah...I am all for the end of winter and some fresh air in the house and into my daily routine.

Nikki said...

Yep, I know just what you mean cuz it was the same over here in Chicago. It's like the gods are taunting us. Grab some Malabrigo or something and tell yourself this is the last time for a while you'll get to knit with it cuz soon it'll be too warm. Then maybe you can bear the cold weather a little longer.

Keep knitting Arleta... summer is just around the corner.
