First of all, I want to say how much I have enjoyed seeing everyone's New Year starts and Crazy January challenge starts.
My stitching for the New Year has taken a back seat to this horrible cold that decided to make an appearance! At least it isn't the flu! *knock on wood* This awful feeling has put a halt on my regular stitching and on starting my Crazy January Challenge! Hopefully with a little help from cold meds, I will be feeling like new in no time!
Harold's nice long Christmas vacation is over and he is back at work. I have already started asking him when he plans to take more vacation time! I don't get much accomplished (housework or stitching) when he is home but I do enjoy having him here!
There is an old saying that bad things happen in 3's. Hopefully our bad streak is over for awhile now. We had the dryer die on us in the summer, the washer died in the fall and we started off the New Year with a leak in a pipe under the house. That's three and I'm ready to be done with bad luck for a good long while!
The weather around here was supposed to warm up but I haven't felt much of a difference. Oh, there is a big difference from those dreaded single digit temps we had earlier in December (brrrrrrrrr) but I am still waiting for the 50's and 60's to show up again! I guess I will have to wait awhile since January through March are our normal cold cold months (which often include plenty of ice).
I have been stitching a little when this cold gives me a break on AWWR and feel I may finish up before the middle of January now! It was started in 2010 but will be finished in 2011 so I will count it as a finish for the present year. I have thought of setting it aside to start a new piece more than once but I just keep telling myself to push forward with it as I am so close to the end! Hopefully next time, I will feel like dragging out my camera to take an update picture to share!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I always enjoy your visits and comments. Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.
