Still Trying

Still trying to post photos but having issues, which seems to inhibit my blogging.  I want to share photos of the gorgeous fall leaves and sky, yarn I bought at Rhinebeck, and projects I've completed, but am having no luck.

I have been sick again, an ear infection, of all things, but I think I'm on the mend now. I had jury duty this month, but only had to show up one time.  I had to sit in a room for three hours before being released and I didn't have my knitting so I ended up with a migraine brought on by the stress.

On to happier things: my heat has been out for almost three weeks now, and while it's been sort of fun, in an indoor camping sort of way, I'm really about ready to snap at this point.  We had temperatures in the mid twenties last night and the space heater has been going nonstop.  I've also used the oven quite a lot lately and even resorted to hanging a sheet up in the kitchen doorway in an effort to maximize the retention of warmth.  Needless to say, this lends an air of rustic simplicity to our living space.

Oh, the life of a homeowner.  Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Ear infections are nasty, hope you get over it quickly. Migraines are no fun either, and no heat, things have got to pick up soon for you . Time for some good luck!

  2. Oh dear, I hope your heating unit is installed soon. Rustic isn't as much fun as one might think.
    So sorry you've been sick. I know how hard it is to try to recover while teaching. I hope you are healthy for the holiday!
