There is nothing more depressing for me than to wake up to the sound of roaring rain pounding on the roof in January, when it should be snow falling lightly, silently.
Our back yard is under water again, and so is the front yard. It was a struggle, to get my three four legged friends to do their business, and in the end I was as wet as they were, and as grumpy.
I remember, when we first got here, Winter were really, really cold. One day in January many years ago, I went shopping. When I came back to the car it would not start, because it was -21C! Today, we have +10C. I feel so cheated, because I really hate the hot weather during summer time, when it's too hot to breathe. I can only get through it thinking of the lovely Winter to come, with lots of snow for us to play in, but NOoooo, that would be too much to ask.
So, the best we can do inthis weather is this: curl up, and sleep the day away (well, not for me, unfortunately)
I envy them! I have to deal with a leaking washing machine, and a broken handle on my bedroom window. I'm waiting for the third shoe to drop, since these things happen always in three's.
When I'm done feeling sorry for myself, I'm going to finish a test knit for Alexandra. It's a cowl, for which I'm using stash yarn. Some Noro Silk Garden, and Patons Classic Wool Merino. It's coming along nicely. I think Alexandra picked the most perfect yarn/colors for it possible.
O.K. I hope I haven't put you in a bad mood too! Have a lovely Sunday!
