A polar vortex has hit most of Canada right now. I do live is a nice part of Canada, but sometimes between the rain we get there is a little sunshine. Well the sunshine is here right now, but it brought with it the out flow winds and a dang chilly time. I can at least say that it is not like Manitoba right now. They are really in the dang cold.
Well you get the point. So for the last few days I have been hibernating. Haven’t really got out to walk the pooches either. Just being a blob on the couch downstairs watching tv. At least I found a tv show to watch that has kept my interest. It is called heartland. About a family with a ranch in Alberta. There is ups and downs to the show, but I love the outdoorsy and the animals. I have always been an animal person. So this show kinda catches with me.
So while sitting like a blob on the couch I am happening to get some backed up projects underway. I have a table full of them. You know the ones you start and then put to the wayside as you see something else you would like to do. So you kinda leave one project and start working on something else. then while you are in the middle of it you just happen to see something else that you find interesting and might want to try. So projects end up on the table half done and just waiting for you to pick up on them again.
So I vowed that while I was a blob that I would finish one of these projects. Have been working on it for a couple of weeks now. Watching this tv series and keeping myself on track. Still not finished and neither is the series. I have about ten more episodes to go and two more blocks to finish. Well I am getting closer, but just wondering if I will keep it up to get it finished.
This project that I wanted to do about a year ago. It was a cross stitch project. You cross stitch the pattern that is on the block and then you sew the blocks together to make a quilt out of it. There was six blocks to cross stitch and now I can proudly say that I am on the second to last block. Yeah needle in and needle out. Change to a different colour and needle in needle out. Sometimes it gets a little mind numbing with the needle in needle out.
Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy it. The time goes by so fast. I go down stairs to my craft room first thing in the morning. The dogs snuggle in beside me and I go to putting things together. Soon it is lunch time and then the next thing I know it is time to come up for supper. I think do I have to go up and make supper.
This room is my haven. Hubby is working upstairs so if I was upstairs would have to be quiet as not to disturb him working from home. Him being home has put a damper on my routine, but I guess I will have to get use to it. He plans on retiring in a few months. This is really going to disrupt my routine. I have the feeling that he will not want to be home too much once he is home for real.
I keep getting the questions. Well where are we going to go for holidays. We should get a camper van and take off for a few months. Or another story is he should have a bike that I can sit on and we will go away on the bike someplace. I am going to regret what is going to happen in the next few months. I have told him to find something to do and all he says is he has a hobby of pestering me.
Getting together with my friends better soon come back around. I will need to get out of the house for my own sanity. I am not going to have him sitting around the house all day and asking me what we should do. I have things to do and I want to keep doing them.
Okay enough of my whining. Got a little off track here. Then again I don’t really know what or why I was writing tonight. I guess boredom. Been cooped up in the house for a few days and maybe thought I should unload some of my jumbled thoughts in my head. That and the fact that hubby wages some of the stupidest shows. No I don’t go downstairs at night. I would love to be down there at night as well, but do have to spend some time together. Even if it means watching killing, beat em up of aliens or just poor blood infested shows. At least he is no longer watching the reality cop shows. Those to me are the worst. He use to watch those after the news was over. Oh yeah the news has to be on from five o’clock until 7. The same repeat of news over and over again. I am not interested in news. It just makes me more depressed then I am already sometimes. I keep the peace and sit upstairs with him.
Well tomorrow being Saturday. Hubby doesn’t work. So I guess we will be going out someplace. I just hope he doesn’t decide to walk some of those trails I walk. It is too dang cold out there to do that right now. Some say that snow will be in the forecast coming our way. Well one thing. He will be able to use that new snow blower he got. He was tired of shovelling it when it did show up around here.
I guess my whining is done. Still don’t know what the heck I was writing about that I started this blog post. But hey I went with whatever happened to come into my head. So tomorrow will be another day. What comes of it will come. I just hope I ain’t freezing my buns off someplace walking. I do hate the cold and my bod does not take too kindly to it either.
So talk to you later
