Coming out of hibernation....
Coming out of hibernation....well, almost ;-) Still no there really healthy yet but the cold is almost under control. Beginning to actually feel almost human again. Seems like it's been forever.....
Trying to look at the bright side:
*Worked my way through the Miss Marple DVDs (both series - definitely prefer Joan Hickson as Miss Marple... and the the adaptations that are closer to the books that she starred in!), a couple seasons of ST:DS9, a season of Night Court, and I've just put in Space Cowboys (many thanks to the existence of Netflix for all but the last, which I actually own; surprisingly, it was Mum who bought it....used so it was just barely more than renting it but she bought it......).
*Got a fair bit of mostly mindless knitting (a.k.a. straight stockinette) done. Except for the baby sweater pictured below. A simple pattern, it was a joy to knit ;-)
*And lots of drooling at the Loopy Ewe..... how am I ever going to decide what to use with that wonderful gift certificate?
*Snuggled with the kitty a fair bit..... one advantage to older kitties is they often ignore yarn ;-) while the person whose lap they are occupying knits.
Made it to the post office today -- finally!!!! -- to mail the packages from those who won my blog contest. Gotta love automated postage machines. So those of you I won't see in person should expect boxes in the next few days or so. I hope you like what I sent.
