Week 465 ... MB 249 ...

Saturday, January 09, 2021

Morning Sparkies,

A very hot week this week, strong winds and fires up North of us, hot nights too :) It is very wearing on the body, lots of water ....

I completed no knitting this week... I am on a sabbatical to help my back and it is too hot anyway, that helps .

Beauty stays under her tree till late afternoon and comes up the hill to wait for her hay and pellets, she stops first to fill her stomachs at the cool water in the bath tub :)

DD has been accepted to do the mural at the surgery across the barn ... she sourced the paints etc and has been given a lot of good advice :). She really is amazing taking on such an epic project.



It will look something like this as it is in a rural area :)

I have been getting out my wool and giving it a squeeze ... I know ... weird :)

No news otherwise, wet flannels on my head are the order of the day :)

Thanks for taking time to stop by

Thinking of you

Hugs

Christine

    I'm sure I'd left a message on this blog but for some reason it's not posted!! Hard to imagine you coping with hot hot when we're dealing with cold cold . . . wondering if you have those special neckerchiefs in Australia that have a gel insert and are so cooling for hours when soaked in cool water wrapped around the neck? Very popular on the golf course!

    I can totally imagine just giving your knitting an affectionate squeeze but, "Not now!!"

    I’m glad you’re taking a break from your knitting. It should help you with your back.

    Congrats to DD for her mural project. She’s going to do a great job!

    Take care and have a great rest of the week.

    That picture is very pretty and will make a lovely mural!
    I know what you mean about the wool. I crochet and have skeins of yarn in bins. If something catches my eye I have to feel it first. If I'm not crazy about the feel I won't work with it.

    I'd love to send you some of my cold air....27F(-3C) here!

    What an honor for your dd but her work speaks for itself. Here in the 20-30 with beautiful snow, and like we always say- we can always put layers on, and would rather be cold than hot, because it’s hard to stay cool when it’s so hot. Miss your knitting 🧶 and cute how just feeling the wool gives you pleasure. Have a great week

    I'm glad you're taking a little break from all of the knitting, even though I'm sure you'd like to get back to making things! But rest is the order of the day and I am happy to read that you're getting some.

    I hope the weather doesn't get too hot and you can stay cool and comfortable.

    I bet your daughter is excited to stretch her artistic talents with such a large project. Good for her!

    Wet flannels on your head? What does that help? The heat?
    I have been in 113 degree heat before in Texas. Hottest here in FL was 100. But really rare to get over that in FL. Hope to never feel 113 again!!!
    Stay cool my friend. Rest up. Hope your back feels better soon. I need my chiropractor visit which is Wednesday.

    Oh, and that is awesome about your daughter's doing the mural. She does great work. emoticon
