*finally got what this type of thread is about.
I know how Tigger feels, as I'm also experiencing the Alabama rain. It's so increadibly dreary, and growing up in New England, I just wish that it'd turn to snow. I can handle the dreary gray skies in snow because then it shifts to an unrivaled beauty that one who's been several years without can appreciate. It's funny how two years back, I cursed the snow because I had to drive in it no matter if the whole state was shut down. Even if I couldn't drive in it, AAA would send the Tow Trucks to bring me to work, so I went through many days shaking my fist at the falling sky. Now, even though it's December, it still doesn't feel like Christmas.
I woke up REEEEEEEALLY late, as I was up to 4 am last night just knitting away, working on a chain scarf for my mother. Thinking of trying my hand at color changing and putting in a fluffy snowman on one of the chainlinks. She loves snowmen, so I know she'll love it.
About to go nuts though. Is it possible to knit TOO much? I've done nothing else for the past two weeks but knit, so I think my creative juices are getting a little frustrated to have their turn.
Also dealing with some issues reguarding an ex-boyfriend of my mother's who unfortunately has fallen into a coma and is pretty much braindead. He wasn't much of a nice guy towards me and my family, though he had his times...few and far between. Still stuck on how I should be feeling about it, and that also might be adding to the stresses of trying to get Christmas presents done on time, and overall life.
Best philosphy is to just keep doing what you do, life is going to test your limits, and you just gotta study to get an A.
Today I'd like to actually sketch a little bit, take a break from knitting before it drives me insane(and my wrists to handicap XD), then begin again, work on that snowman design, then possibly do some research on some Chemo Caps for my grandmother that don't look like winter hats...
