February doldrums

I know, I've been a lax blogger of late.   I'm trying not to go down the rabbit hole here.

Weaving at a snail's pace.  Not too inspired, I have to admit.

I can't take credit for these gorgeous pinwheel towels.  Other than wind the warp, these are totally Lois' work.

I need to have a vision of something I really want to weave, and then I need to get busy doing it.
But not today.

The steroid injection lasted full tilt about a week, and then began to disappear rapidly.  Now it just hurts, so I guess I'm on to the Viscous gel injection next.
I'm resigned.

As I promised, I dumped my web site.  I got sick of being annoyed, spending money, and always feeling like I wasn't doing enough.   These are selling on my FB page, and it doesn't make me anxious.

My 30 (actually 31) day challenge is done.....I got rid of over 500 items out of this house.   Then I put it all on FB Marketplace for FREE.......and two very nice ladies came and fetched it right off my back porch.  Guess they are planning on a spring garage sale, either that or they just needed something to do.
One of them said, "we'll have fun going through it" maybe that's pandemic entertainment these days.
Anyway, it's gone, and it felt SO GOOD.

Even though I finished, today I got rid of more.  I gave a long LL Bean coat to a treasured friend, and I know she will rock it.
Then another good friend came and picked up these canning jars, to make candles in.

I even pulled this old gumball machine out of the cupboard, and I'll be giving it to my grandson, who thinks he needs it.

I dug out these two books, because I need to keep sorting and deep cleaning out.  I will read them and pass them on to another friend, who is currently in sunny Fla.

Keeping it real here, I ended up in the ER the other night, with atrial fibrillation...which lasted about an hour and a half.   I think....for what it's worth......that it's thyroid related, but I had to see a cardiologist, and now I have to have an echocardiogram.  And the doctor told me I need to lose this extra 20 lbs I'm carrying around.   So, yup, back to WW.  I did it before, and it looks like I will be doing it again.   You think I would get it.

My son in law is always calling Miss Dale, mini Mimi.
She doesn't like to wear clothes, she has  the same haircut, and the look on the face, well, maybe Daddy is right.

Snow storm tomorrow...........I need to get motivated to do something productive.

Way to go on the decluttering. And those jars are truly vintage and will be loved by the person you're giving them to. Sorry about the afib. I'm on a steroid and , yes, they are challenging!!!
I need to lose 20lbs too but am less motivated than you.:(

Those towels are beautiful. Makes me wish I still had my 8 harness Fanny. Ah, well. I certainly can admire Lois' work.
I'm sorry about the afib. I hope the docs get to the bottom of it soon.
And I hope you don't plan on shoveling any of that snow I know is falling on you right now.

I hope you don't part with your Joy, Dream, Imagine, etc. signs. They so inspired me when Marian and I visited your labyrinth and you showed us around your amazing home.

Wish I lived closer, I would love to have brought home a few of those zinc lid Ball canning jars. Love your bicycle picture!

I find that I am more emotional at the prospect of getting rid of stuff than I am at finally just doing it. Those blue canning jars are treasures. Your friend is very lucky.

Welcome to my world.
