Karma's a bitch
 isn't she?

I complained about too much hooky stuff on this
blog of nothingness
for almost two weeks 
hooky stuff was not for me
whether I wanted it or not

yarn arrived for the continuation of the white lacy blanket

and I started on it
wondering if it would ever be finished
as it is one of those
"I see it I want it and I have to have it now"
that is 
quite truthfully 
quite a boring job
but I still love it and want it
but Karma decided to teach me a lesson
she took away the ability to sit and hook

my shoulder flared up and for days I suffered on the couch
sometimes in silence
other times
not so much

after the third degree from husband.....
it's a pinched nerve
muscle cramp
joint pain
hot and painful
too much leaning on the elbow
too much elbow bending'
but not of the alcoholic type
(sometimes I think I should start all the things I never did)
being one of those annoying people who don't and can't take drugs
other than Tylenol
I  just waited for the pain to go away
I watched movies and the shows I tape
and decided I really like Scandinavian shows
and Italian shows
but not so much the French and German ones
 the German one
 that is written by an American
and takes place in Venice
and all the names and places are Italian
but they all speak German
confused much!!

I survived and more importantly so did husband 
who after a few days insisted I take a baby aspirin
or 12
and it helped a bit
so I am on the way back from the pit of pain and torture

I can get up without yelling or grunting
I tried to do something of the hooky kind

but it's not time yet
I found other ways to entertain myself

a ballerina 
made of wire and napkins
both of which I have an abundance


and while waiting for the water to boil
a giant
candy corn
under glass!!!!
we don't do 
tricks and treats around here anymore

and at last
it's over
the worst season of the year 
in my humble opinion
Halloween is over


and husband says one can tell what season of the year it is around here

by the napkins


have a good one 
if you do it
if not
shut the shades and dim the lights
and wait for the little pests to go away

the colour continues

999... gooses and ducks and sparkles...

oh my....
it isn't just leaves in the lake today
we have
wing'ed things too
it is a brilliant shiny blustery day today
and it makes you smile just to see it
the leaves 
the wildlife 
those never disappointing sparkles
today is a good day for
them all
oh yes...

weird Wednesday

it's wet and windy out there
and sticky too
the record for the highest low temperature was broken last night
it stayed in the '70's
we turned the a/c back on 'coz it was so humid
it's almost 80 deg F out there
it's going to rain all day and get very windy
(what's the symbol for shoulder shrug?)

the colours have started
and we do desperately need the rain
so no real complaints
it's just weird to feel the warmth in the wind



and stitching continues

while the outside tries to make up its mind
as to what 
season we're in

love when 


stops by the Lake

let the wind blow
let the flakes fly
