Well, I've been among the missing for far too long...again...and no excuses, either. Just feeling a bit down and overloaded, as we now face the prospect of moving out of this house (that we only moved into last October) so we can begin the renovation project. I just can't seem to get myself in gear. No energy, no motivation to get myself going. It's hard to think of all that's necessary to bring this project to fruition: choosing a zillion things like stoves, fridges, bathtubs, shower surrounds, tiles, colors, flooring, etc. ad nauseum, when you don't know which suppliers are good, what brands to choose, where the showrooms are. Sigh. I know it's silly, because it will all be worth it when we're finished, but I just can't seem to get into it this time around.
We've built two houses before this project, and loved doing them both. I think once we finally get going I'll get my house mojo going again, but for now I feel a bit paralyzed.
And so, no quilting for the moment. It's winter here now and quite cold, and my quilting studio is unheated and uninviting. Plus my enthusiasm for pink, blue and cream hasn't returned yet. So, I've been working on small projects like these socks:
And this sweater:
Keeps me busy and engaged, and they are fun things to work on and not overwhelming, like everything else seems to be at the moment.
And guess what? Our neighbors, who are moving, are letting us care for several of their horses for awhile, until they get themselves settled and organized. So, here's Minnie, on the left, a lovely young horse with a sweet, loving disposition, then Naadia, the white horse in the middle, and Tyler, the black gelding on the right. Naadia and Tyler are rather elderly, both just lovely horses. I think we'll enjoy their visit with us.
Also thought you'd enjoy these visitors to our lower paddock yesterday morning. I guess now that the steers are gone, they feel comfortable grazing a bit closer to our house.
So. That's the news of the day from me. Sorry to be such a lame blogger of late. I hope to be better soon, but no promises at the moment. I'm reading everybody else's posts and loving them. Thanks for being there, guys!
