Yes Its Snowing Here too!

This winter has certainly reminded me that here in Missouri we can and do get snow and lots of it.. not sure how much is on the ground right now.  It keeps melting and snowing and then doing it all over again.  I haven't minded it so very much since I have lots of projects going on in the house right now.  We have been sledding, built snow men and slid around on the icy pond trying to wring all the fun we can out of the white stuff.

I am actually almost finished with the quilt that I started in 1975.  Will be ready to begin actually quilting it next week.  In the knitting department I am working on a Fair Isle hat, my first try at that sort of knitting.  I like doing this kind of work, a bit tedious, but worth the effort.  I have another pair of socks almost completed.  These are for me!  And a scarf is lying in my knitting bag, waiting to be frogged back a few rows before beginning it again.  I do love knitting and the beautiful practical things that I produce.

Grandson has moved back in with us.  He is trying to get an apartment with a friend so doesn't want me to set his bedroom back up so is sleeping in my computer room at the moment.  He is back at school.. high school again and seems to be hanging in there with the program so far.  He has been in touch with his mother a few times, but is getting little satisfaction in that area.  I have not spoken to her since August though she did accept Christmas gifts for her younger children from me and her sisters. 

My exercise program now includes the Five Tibetan Rites.  I have worked up to 13 reps now.  I have been having a lot of challenges with my back and don't know if it is due to the Rites or not and don't know how to ascertain that.  I guess I could stop doing them and see if my back gets better, but I hesitate to do that knowing that I will probably never get back into the habit of performing them daily.

I do hope that everyone is enjoying snow if they've got it and if not enjoying whatever is going on in your "neck of the woods."
