The last two days have been overcast, cold and windy. Yesterday actually felt colder than today and yet the temperature was higher, I think the howling wind had something to do with it.
My winter coat is out and being worn, but the cold is playing havoc with my back. I can only sit for a bit, stand for a bit and work for a bit which is causing me to fall behind in everything I planned to have done this week. I barely get the household tasks finished and doing my cross stitch for any length of time without stopping for a break is unheard of. I think it may take a bit longer than it should to complete.
I had a Parish Council meeting last night that I had to leave early because I was in so much pain. One would think someone would have called today to see how I was feeling.... Nope. More and more I am beginning to realize that the community I thought was present, really isn't. It seems that there are "favorites" and those of us who are on the outside looking in. I will get used to this eventually, but I am thinking that it is time to draw back from this smaller community and work in the larger community of my city.
I have a few tasks to complete and then I will draw back, bit by bit and enter a different phase of volunteering and giving back.
I did a bit of fabric shopping in my stash and found some fabric to make some new winter tops and either skirts or perhaps pants. I believe that will be one of my goals for next month. I really want to use up some of my stash before I buy more. I also have some new patterns I want to make up to fill in some areas of my fall/winter wardrobe that are lacking.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
