At my age I should know better, but with every new year I can't help thinking that it's a new clean slate. I always think the bad stuff from the year before is past and the future is fresh and hopeful. Wrong!!! It's just a continuation of the year before and all the bad stuff comes along with it. This year is no different.
Morgan feels the January blues along with me.
I know a lot of people have been dealing with large amounts of snow. Here in Missouri we didn't get snow, we got mud, lots of mud. Here is a shot of my kitchen floor after an outing on Sunday. Yes, I know I should wipe off their feet when they come in, but I have forty feet to clean. When I had three dogs they waited at the door and got the paws wiped off, but with ten dogs I can't even keep track of who's been cleaned and who hasn't.
All in all I prefer snow.
I did finish something. My candy cane afghan wasn't done for Christmas, but I finished it on New Year's Day. Just in time to stick it in the closet for a year. It turned out nicely and it was fun to work on while watching television in the evenings.
I'm starting a new cross stitch tonight. I'm really looking forward to this one. I won't tell what it is, but if it turns out as expected I'll show it off. I'm thinking about what I want to knit next. I have several ideas whirling around in my head and maybe I can pick one and settle down with it.
Sky sends this smile to everyone. Now, how can anyone be blue with that sweet smile greeting them?
