Good morning. Brrr, the cold temps are back, and a lot of snow is expected to be back shortly. One weatherman says we're getting 5-8 inches, and another says we're getting 8-12 inches. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens. The other day we were supposed to get a dusting, and there was six inches of snow all around my car. We just never know what to expect.
I think I'm starting to go "cold" crazy.. This cold is taking so long to leave my body, and I'm getting bored. I don't really have the energy to do a lot of things that I could be doing, so lately I've picked up my knitting again.
The "pink thing" that I've been working on once in a while over the last few years is growing, however I still don't know what it will be when it finally grows up. When I first started working on it, my hands were starting to hurt, so I only pick it up every once in a while. I'm sure it is full of all sorts of mistakes, but Pogo doesn't seem to care. He loves it. It is soft and fuzzy and warm.
I bought me a new book of Granny Square patterns, so I think this year, I will take my crochet hooks and some yarn with me to Florida. I usually like to pack up one of my craft projects and mail it on ahead to myself a week before I leave for vacation. This way, it is waiting there for me, and I don't have to worry about carrying it in my suitcase.
I don't like to pack anything other than clothes in my suitcase, because baggage handlers seem to always to pick my suitcase to open. They break, and keep sometimes, the little lock. One would think that their fabulously smart xray system would pick up any bad stuff they are looking for hidden away in my socks and undies. However, some of their employees insist on breaking the little locks and rifling through the clothes.
This makes it just a bit more difficult for me because then I have to carry all of my valuables in my carry on. Add to this, Pogo with his carry case and stroller, my suitcase and my purse. I have a lot to carry before I reach the check in and the wheel chair. However, I manage, and I will keep on as long as I can.
All of this reminds me that I need to start booking our flights. After that, I need to decide on which carry case Pogo will use this year. I will also have to figure out how to downsize my carry on case. Every smaller adjustment helps. Last year, I left the stroller at home, but then it wasn't as much fun for Pogo. This year I believe we will take it with us.
Enough of my babbling, it is time to find a little mischief to get into. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
