February blues

You can probably tell from the lack of posting, that there is not a whole lot of knitting going on over here.

At least not as much as I'd like.

I did finish the first of Dave's Valentine's day socks - but I don't have a picture because I left it at Mom's last weekend. I've started the second one, but I've only been able to complete a few inches.

Tick, tick, tick... that's the time moving swiftly to Valentine's day. Unfortunately, there's not very much click, click, click.... the sound of my needles knitting a sock.

It's the usual culprit keeping me from knitting - work. And since it pays for the yarn, I can't really tell it to take a hike.

I'm also fighting a cold again (and losing). We may have had a mild winter this year with very little snow - but it's been a bad one for colds. This is my fourth - and they've all been doozies. And Dave's got this one too - which means I can't just sit around and mope - I've got to take care of him.

And yeah... he's your typical man with a cold - all whine, all the time.

But there has been an interesting development at Chez Wandering Cat
Sharing space! And no growling. Though they refused to make eye contact with each other!

Get better soon, and hopefully the Blues will go away too.
The boys are funny, but look a little pissed off.

Typical cat, I'd doing this, but I don't like it face, LOL! Hope you are feeling better. I'm home today with a bad cold, been keeping me up at night with dry hacking cough, the kind that makes your eyes water and you can't stop. I hope to get some knitting done while I'm home!!

Hope everyone feels better soon! My work has been pretty exhausting as well. My boss says I won't have ten minutes to myself in the next month or two :( Oh well, at least that sounds like job security!

I'm reading a novel that is divided by seasons: fall, winter, STILL WINTER, spring, summer. Hope you and yours feel better soon!
