Someone is not feeling tip top today. See the red under that cute freckled nose? Well it is even worse now from all the tissue rubbing that has occurred today. My little one has a cold, unfortunately caught from me. Yes my friends we are sniffing and coughing together. This is my fifth or sixth cold since Christmas. Can I tell you how much I am over it? Little Buddy has been in his pj's all day and has watched a marathon of Paw Patrol and Cars movies. And frankly if he is happy doing that he must not be feeling well.
The skies are gray and we have had a wonderfully rainy day. Just the kind you want to have when you are not feeling the greatest. May was the hottest month on record in Florida, many days at 95 and 96 degrees. I have never seen that in the 30 plus years I have lived here. We have not gotten any rain for a month so today's rain is very welcome. The weather is crazy everywhere. Yet there is no climate change, right? Today is World Ocean Day. Just read a few articles about the dying coral reefs, all the plastic and trash in the ocean and of course the melting of all the icebergs and you will be as sad as me.
Work continues on the Ete Cardigan from We Are Knitters. I have been slow with this project because most nights this week I plopped into bed after work to rest. These colds are ridiculous in how they zap your energy. I wasn't sick enough to cancel patients, well I always cancel my heart transplant kids when I even have a sniffle, but the rest of the week was packed full.
I am in awe every time I start a project. Just one stitch or chain leads to a finished fabric that can be so many things. The possibilities are endless. I think that is why we all have a bit of startitis, it is the start of creating something that is so enticing.
Hank and Bear are constantly at my side when I am home. They are calming down just a tiny bit as they are now 1 1/2. They still have incredible energy, they roughhouse and play like they are fighting and run wild inside and out. They are so much fun. Hank's job is to take care of everyone, and Bear, well he will always be the baby and try to get away with more than his brother even though they are exactly the same age. I can't even comment on Blogs without some help from my darling Hank.
My heart is heavy on this gray day. Reading blogs where friends have lost beloved pets and a lovely blogging friend losing her life to cancer at the end of May has left me feeling sad. You know this strange blog world we live in gets under your skin. You start to care about people and cheer them on even though you have not met before. I always grieve a bit when a blog I have read for years closes shop because there is nothing left to say, but they say loads on other platforms. Or when they just stop blogging and months go by before you realize they are not there anymore. You wonder if all is well with this person and with their family even though you have only read about them. It is so strange to care about people out there you will never meet in person but I do. I really do, and I know you all do, too.
When this little one heard that my voice was different on Tuesday morning due to my cold he asked me why my voice was always so scratchy. He then told me he does not like scratchy voices and maybe he needs a new mom! Any takers out there? Free shipping and includes green dinosaur pajamas and a steering wheel which is a necessity when watching the movie Cars 3.
