So here we are...it's February already! Today is a bit dreary here in Hoosierville, but I have just had a fifteen hour sleep (!) in the big girl sleigh bed and now I'm in the Happy Chair for some fun. My flu/cold is still hanging on, but seems to be getting a little better each day, thank God. It turns out that I can take Mucinex, which has turned out to be really really helpful!
If I'm up to it, I might paw through some stash...or I might not. Pulling Dinky Dyes silk through Picture This Plus linen is sooooo completely lovely that I just don't want to put it down. It's pink and red, so I supposed it can be a Valentine piece, right?
Rich wants me to get out for "some fresh air", so I might take a ride with him as he runs some errands today. I'm trying to convince him that I can get fresh air right here in the Happy Chair by opening a window, but he seems determined to get me moving a bit. I suppose a little excursion won't kill me....besides, I might convince him to go for big salads for dinner from McCallister's. (What can I say? I'm a total sucker for a chopped salad and I am trying to lose another ten pounds this month.)
I watched the Flosstubes yesterday, and it got me through a particularly brutal session. I've graduated to the largest needles possible and we're running the machine at full speed and pulling a fair bit of fluid off, so my poor body needs a minute (I think) to adjust. But...Miss Vonna came to the resue and two of her videos were just what I needed to make it through. My techs kept coming over to see what I was grinning at all day, and I tried to explain the complete joy this thing of ours brings me and how you all saved my life...but the tears came and I just looked like a boob, snotting all over my old lady sweatshirt with the zipper in the arm.
(Maybe I should just forget about trying to explain it to outsiders. After all, if there are tens of thousands of us out here who get it, why worry about the ones who don't?)
So that's the state of the Spinster Union today, Dearies. Quiet, calm, happy, peaceful, and hopefully full of some reading, stitching, and hand-holding with my Jersey Boy. If I didn't know better, I'd think I'm off to a perfect Thursday!
