A river runs through our yard....


Had an appointment in Lewisville this morning.....knew I wouldn't make it when I heard the river that is usually a creek roaring outside at 6 am. No snow day for me, just a rain day.

This is a photo of 2 feet of water rushing across the north side of our yard. It is also across the road as well. Hubby made it out of the drive in the pickup, the van is staying in the garage today.

What do you do when you can't knit as much as you like?

I am enduring a self-imposed respite from knitting until the tendinitis improves a bit more. I laid off of it for a bit and then started back slowly and the symptoms have returned so I am wearing a brace when I do knit....no more than 30 minutes once or twice a day. However, that leaves a lot of hours in the day that I usually would devote to knitting.

The house should be cleaner because I am not knitting as much, but it isn't. I should be doing some sewing and mending but I can't get to the sewing machine right now. I really ought to be caught up with my spiritual reading, but I am not.

I have two words to explain it all: Facebook and Pogo. I really have to limit the amount of time I am spending online. There are other things more important than playing games and chatting with people on the other side of the planet. Looks like I already know what I will be giving up for Lent!
