Back in the frozen northeast. Just in time for a furious snow storm, followed by freezing rain that has encased the world in ICE.
Everyone is saying ENOUGH ALREADY.
I can't even process it.
I refuse to put a picture of this winter wonderland on my blog......(hear the sneer).......I would rather see one of my friend's screen porch in the late afternoon sun.......you know, GEORGIA, where I think winter is usually more simple.
Yeah, they had an ice storm, in 3 or 4 days, they were back to NOTHING on the ground. The temps were moderate........not to them.........but to me, oh yeah.
But here's the clincher. We got back Monday. We were gone for 8 weeks.........we stopped in Virginia, then stayed a week in Georgia, went to Florida, stayed several weeks, came back to Georgia for about 10 days, then to Tennessee for 2, back to Virginia, and home.
I had TWO BAD HEADACHES in that whole time.......all the rest were not even worth the mention.
NOW, I have been back for 4 days.......and I have had TWO BAD HEADACHES.
It has to be the weather. Otherwise, I just don't understand it.
I was happy to get back to the studio, I missed being there so much. I must say that the concept of being "on vacay" for 8 weeks, did not really suit me. I have to rethink going someplace warmer next year. It is obvious that I need to get away from this frigid north if I don't want to suffer all winter long, but I need to have a different plan.
I need to take a loom, or two.
I guess under other circumstances, I could just move to Georgia. I grew quite fond of it.
And while I suppose it is possible that I could move my studio, my children, my grandchildren, and my friends, are here.
I can't leave them, don't want to. That's non negotiable.
There ain't no sunshine worth that.
While on my travels, I got a chance to meet some of my blog followers, and fellow weavers, when I went to Tennessee. I got to spend a few hours with some of the Tuesday Weavers at the Appalachian Craft Center in Norris, TN. What a fantastic group!!!! I so enjoyed meeting them in real time, I only wish I lived closer. It makes a weaver's heart beat fast, just to be around all those looms, and people who love them.
I didn't realize what a tan I had until I saw this.
Thanks, ladies. I hope to see you all again, on a Tuesday this time.
Hmm......maybe a rental in Tennessee is in my future.
