It has been pretty cool and dismal here the last couple of days. Kind of put me off of doing much of anything. I am also having trouble sleeping which probably isn't helping much.
This week has been one of not cooking very much, just warming things up from precooked meals. Makes being able to work on various projects much easier. Mind you those do not seem to be moving forward to completion as quickly as I had hoped. Still every row knit, every cushion cut out and every bit of stuffing done is getting better.
I am hoping that Kris makes it home this weekend and brings the grandcat for a visit. Eiko always brings a smile to my face even if she decides after a bit that she really does not like me much and gives me a swipe and hiss when I walk by. I should say having Kris home also brings a smile to my face.Since it has been so cold and snow is once again being forecast Kris may not make it home. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I believe another reason I am a bit down in the dumps is that usually I have been busy planting flowers. Not this year, in fact I haven't even bought bedding plants. So there is a bit of a dearth of colour in my life right now. I really need to feel the dirt between my fingers and see some colour!!!
Tomorrow (if the sun shines at all) I am going to get the cushions for my wicker rocker made and perhaps finish off one side of the second poncho I am making. I may even actually start the embroidery on the tablecloth.
The baby formula shortage has now hit us. Lots of it is because of what could be considered panic buying due to the shortage in the United States and the fact that my city is only 9 miles from the border so lots of shoppers from the U.S. seem to head here whenever there is a shortage of something down there. Kind of reminds me of the great toilet paper shortage at the beginning of the pandemic.
I filled my vehicle with gas today and it felt like I was filling it with the best cuts of beef possible. I am hoping that the cost starts to drop a bit very soon. But I rather doubt that happening. All a person can do is find other ways to save, but I really pity those who have to drive any distance for their jobs.
Now that I have probably brought you all down, I am very sorry. I am off to pay all of you a visit.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
