I know I have been talking a lot about getting older lately.
I think one of the reasons it has been so much on my mind, is that I have felt pretty crappy all winter long.
After the flu in the beginning of December, I have not felt right.
Still coughing, still tired. I have just not had the level of energy that I am used to.
When I went for my physical for my upcoming cataract surgery, (the second one), that I cancelled because of the flu, the doctor said that this virus has been particularly nasty and has impacted people for months afterwards.
Now that's a thought. This nasty germ traveling around your body, wreaking havoc for an extended period of time.
I have been making a concerted effort to feel better.....taking the Vitamin D mega doses to get my levels up, trying to stay away from potato chips and other delicious/deadly things. And of course, I've been walking.
Yesterday was Naya's BEST venture on the leash. I think that she is just going to get this with daily walks. Stay on my left, don't cross in front of me, stay fairly close.
I don't mind if she stops to sniff occasionally. I don't want her pulling me off the road, however.
We can come to an agreement about this.
She has settled in now. She is home, it is so evident. She has a schedule, and it makes her feel safe.
Last night, I let her out, but she wouldn't go off the porch to her fenced yard. I stepped out on the porch to try to coax her down the steps. But she was adamant that she wasn't doing it.
Then I heard them. Coy dogs, yipping and barking and howling just a pasture away.
She looked at me, like: "What the hell?"
So we went in, and she luckily has a bladder of steel, and lasted the night.
She has her favorite spots....one is on her blanket on the end of the couch, but the other is on the floor on the other side of the living room. DH said, you should put a rug there, so I did.
Luckily, I have a stash.
I don't know how you can so quickly get to love a dog like they've been in your life forever, but I have.
Thank you, Karen, for finding her for me.
I wouldn't give her up now.
Since I have quit weaving baby wraps, I have extended my weaving to yardage.....I hope at some point to have several pieces of yardage available.
This one didn't last long, was sold a day after I posted it on FB.
Silk, soybean, tencel, and bamboo.
I have debated about giving up my web site.....it seems that I sell more on FB than I do the web site that costs me too much money every month.
Just for the sake of experiment, I put all my möbius shawls on ETSY Crazyasaloomweaving
and sure enough, sold one within a week. So I may downsize my web site to just a page, directing customers to Etsy, which is cheaper.
Then I will continue to post available stuff on my FB page Crazy as a Loom Weaving
Whatever works, that is the simplest.
I am so over complicated.
It is supposed to rain all day today, so might as well work in the studio. Hope your Sunday is a good one.
