Just because it’s Thursday

June 2, 2016

Hello June, glad to know we have hit that half way point in the year already. What? You weren’t aware of this fact? Neither was I until I had to rip off the big page of May from my giant calendar (which I love by the way.) This year is going by quickly in a lot of respects, I mean here we are in June and while we haven’t hit those overbearing hotter-than-the-surface-of-the-sun-days of summer yet, we have had our share of hot weather. Fun fact, I don’t do well in heat, by which I mean I resemble something akin to a toddler in melt down after missing a nap and their favorite toy. Yeah, it’s not pretty. In reality whatever it is wrong with me health wise (trust me this seems to be as changeable as the plot on a daytime soap opera) doesn’t seem to let me handle heat well at all. I never did great with it growing up, but now it’s just awful, I end up getting warm when normal people are freezing (aka the Giant has been living in hoodies and blankets for most of the winter and spring.)

Enough about the weather, knitting wise I have done a little bit on a lot of things, which really translates to a whole lot of nothing to show. I haven’t cast on a pair of socks for Sock-it-to-summer the Fourth (episode 160 should give you all the details) yet, which I really need to do. Chalk it up to the fact that I am having trouble picking yarn. I do have a couple of WIP’s of socks for the Giant that I should probably wrap up at some point, but for now I am going to dream of all the different options in the stash.

On the whole I haven’t been doing great. Doctor’s appointments took up most of May and of course ended with no real news. I suppose the process of elimination is great and all, but right now (and then) I am not feeling that positive about it. I’ve gotten to that point where I am frustrated enough that I show emotion (read cry/get angry/pout) but am at a loss of what to do next. I’m told I am doing everything right, but improvement has been minute or missing altogether. The whole thing has left me feeling a little less social (read not posting) lately, but I am hoping that through the force of sheer will (aka stubbornness) I can get myself back in the habit of writing up at least a little something to share with you all.

In positive news, because ending on such a downer would suck. There is a new(er) tiny human in my family. A little nephew greeted the world a few weeks ago and both mama and baby are doing well. I’m working on some items for the tiny human and hopefully will be able to share F.O.’s soon.

So how about you all? Have you been dealing with the beginnings of Summer weather (technically late spring, but anything over 75 makes me think of summer) Any new projects on the needles,hooks, wheels,spindles, looms, ect.? Thoughts on a non-photo heavy, more “personal” type of post?

Until next time.

  1. I think you should post about whatever is on your mind and you feel the need to say. Anyone who isn’t interested can skip that one and go read something else.

    For me, anything over 70 is usually TOO HOT, and I miss having a basement to live in during the summer. This is how I survived growing up: popsicles and reading/playing in the basement all day away from the sun and heat.

  2. If this is what is going on with you then feel free to post about it as far as I am concerned. Life isn’t only about knitting, and if you are going through a rough spot, then I am glad you can let your blog friends offer some support.

    And congrats on the new nephew! Tiny humans are wonderful things. -)
