Iz hab code in by nose...

Today is a better living through chemistry day – Airborne and Mucinex are my friends. I finally succumbed to the cold that I thought was allergies all last week (dang). I should have known when my nose became leaky faucet Saturday, and I couldn’t seem to get warm. Oh well, hopefully, it will be the last one of the season (the first one and only other was at Thanksgiving).

As such, I had a very bori... um, relaxing weekend. I read 3 books (I read very, very fast). I brought the dyed fiber in from the porch (see previous post) because after 2 weeks it still wasn’t dry. It’s now suspended between my hutch and a box over the window thingy, and mostly dry. I fluffed and braided all but 8 oz. of the fiber that was dry. I took a nap with Lyra. I walked Annie around the pasture, having her stepping over logs (she’s very aware of where her feet are, unlike a very big horse I know), and picked up all of her feet. She had forgotten that skill when I first got her – with some work (not really all that much), she’s remembered.  And I did it without her being tied up. What a good pony.

My sister reminded me that I had not sent her pictures of Ted. 
He basically fills this basket, which is 20" across – he’s becoming rather rotund… If he looks like he's glaring, he is.  I still can't touch him without him hissing and growling.  He was all comfy before I interrupted him. I would like to be at home curled up under my down comforter with Lyra.

Oh, and after 2 days with no rain, and a little sun, it's raining again, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.  Current rainfall total: 60 inches since Nov. 1, 2010.

Spring is coming, right?

I am tired of the rain also, tho I wouldn't mind a couple more good ole' windstorms when I'm home tucked in front of the fire. I read like you do... people can't believe it when I say I started and finished something in 1 night. Hope you feel better soon!

Yes, spring IS coming . . . eventually . . . in the lovely colors of Water Lilies . . . . ;-)

Aren't the seasons interesting and isn't this why we don't live in San Diego anymore?? Come on. It rained all night and Ian and I awoke to snow this morning, but it could be SoCal. I don't want that again. I don't think you do either. I do not want that ever again. Not!
