Things have been . . . off. . . around here this week. I have a pesty little cold. Jenny has a pesty little digestive problem. The weather is completely horrid. My knitting has been giving me fits. My garden is taking on a shape of its own. Definitely off kilter all around!
But. I'm trying to make the best of things. My cold is one of those fast-moving viruses, and it's now on its way out. I had to bring in the Big Guns for poor Jenny, though -- a trip to the vet this morning. Special food, doggie-immodium, and an anti-biotic should help get her on track to better digestive health.
As for the weather? I can't do anything about it, unfortunately, and my plants are actually loving all the rain. Instead of looking out the window, watching the weeds grow and adding to my garden to-do list, I just used the time to work on "inside projects." Like Brian's "shrine." Yesterday I put the finishing touches on 50 (yes, 50!) photo collages for his scrapbook. They cover every aspect of his life from babyhood. . .
to his senior year. . .
As for my knitting. Well. After explaining how I "don't do lace" I'm sort of embarrassed to show you my newest project. Because, ummmm, well, it has, uhhhhhh, some lace.
Really, though, it's more a textured pattern than lace. And, after a rough start (with an incredibly WEIRD and, in my opinion, poorly-diagrammed, lace chart), it seems to be moving along quite well.
So this week has been off kilter. Completely. But I'm starting to feel more . . . stable. Let's just hope the weather begins to stabilize, too -- bringing some sunshine and warmer temperatures our way.
Be ready for a little change tomorrow! I've used my recent "inside time" to do a little designing here on the blog. Watch for a new look tomorrow!
