Sometimes it’s best to stop and listen to the rain.

Sometimes, it is just so beautiful!

Per Linda:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “stick.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

It’s Yoda in the sky and I’m sticking to it!

Sticking to something is supposed to be a good thing. Yet sticking it to someone is bad. We sure are inconsistent with our language, don’t your think? 🤪

We’re enjoying our bike. We take turns and are surprised by how far we can go and stay in one spot. I hope we can stick to this new habit. My husband is far happier than he was with the treadmill. His arthritis is worse than mine so he needs low impact exercise. I’ll stick to walks a few days a week, then ride for miles in the living room.

Now for my other habits I need to grow or kill. And make it stick…

Yes, I plan on using my walking sticks.

Thus Thursday

Though we got the indoor bike delivered late yesterday, we didn’t take it out of the box until today.

Outside of the moment it all went well. Then we couldn’t figure out why the seat had four holes for screws while the metal brace part had three holes. What? The four holes in the shape of a square did not line up with the three in the shape of a triangle.

I say ‘we,’ but Chris did the physical building, I just worried and supervised.

Then he saw the actual seat with the triangle holes and realized that other bit was the back rest. Whew!

All in all, it took a couple hours. Chris took his ride first. Then I did a couple miles in my living room. Since we didn’t take our walk today, I pictured our half mile turn around, so quickly arrived and repeated in my head. Imagine how far a mile would happen on a real bike!

When not in use it goes in my Dabbling Den. Yeah, another thing to block the piano. But on the right side the diamond painting area is not being used right now. The whole area needs a makeover.

Luckily, the wheels on the bike make it easy to move around.

I meant to mention that box of yarn tucked in under the keyboard of the piano.  Yay! Yarn!
From the driver’s seat, the front of the bike. Yes, that is Rosey’s food dish.

I’m happy to have the bike today. It was hot and humid. Then we had thunder storms. But that left a phenomenal sunset. Sorry it isn’t even close to what I saw.

Happy Thursday!

Making Monday

So many socks in various stages. And one hat.

I spent the day tinking these. I’ve started the heel and accidentally had picked up the wrong sock’s yarn.
Finished except for sewing in loose threads.
Hat in the brim stage.
Decided to make a pair on the looms.
I don’t like working on thinner yarn and needles.

The cotton is okay, just boring.

It’s getting late so I’ll leave out the yarn toes and needles, etc .

It was a cold rainy day. They say it’s going to be summer soon. I’ll try to be happy about helping the draught situation.

This one liner from my good friend on Facebook. Thanks Yve! I know how you feel! I can’t wait for walking weather!

Made It Monday

Yay, despite the weirdness of life knitting happens.

Knitters’Pride Royale Circular Needles, Caron Jumbo, (can’t find the label for colorway). I shared the videos I followed a couple days ago. Learning the Fleegle heel and a stretchy bind-off I really found easy.

On the other hand… I found Knitters’Pride Royale Circular Needles a pain to work with. This happened a lot:

The cables curled up and got in the way a lot. In my personal contest, ChiaoGoo red-lace circulars wins.

Here’s a nearly finished pair of cotton socks on ChiaoGoo red-lace circulars. The cables stay out of the way.

Meanwhile, here’s the ‘atmospheric river.’ Pretty, but I feel it is too little and too much too late.

By the way, is there anyone in the country that likes Daylight Savings Time?

What Day Is It Anyway

Today I told my friend that I’d rather Zoom on Thursday. Only several hours later did I realize it was in fact, Thursday. Ah, adventures in #WDIIA

Maybe it’s the crazy weather. A month and a half of snow. A day of mud and weeds. Then today:

57 Days of Snow

Last night the hairdryer of the world blew. It felt like our home was going to fly away. Today there is very little snow. Mostly water or ice. It snowed here November 1st. Snow piled up over the month. Here’s how it looks now:

Yuck. What a mess!

No worries. More snow is expected by this evening and for the rest of the week. But rain will be here when the wind stops.

It’s been over 32 at night so we feel like it’s summer, kicking off blankets and turning on fans.

Snow is pretty and covers all the weeds. Bonus is insects die out. Those last flies hung out until nearly December! But finally gone.

I hope you all are safe and weather your weather, which is far worse than ours.

The Snow Kept on FallingThe Snow Kept on Falling by Kathie McQueary
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank you, Cheryl. This was fun. I do have the child’s point of view about snow. I get very excited. And yes, I understand why Gramma said what she said. We have had snow around Halloween. But it never stuck. So when it started snowing on All Saints Day, November 1st, I figured it would melt away. Guess what? It still hasn’t melted a bit. It isn’t as deep as the picture book’s snow. But the snow is still here because we haven’t gotten above freezing for this month, often hitting nearly double minus digits. Sadly, it isn’t that fluffy stuff of the first snow. This is the dangerous to walk or drive on snowy ice. The kind my husband broke his shoulder in a few years ago.

This fun book reminded me of the Henry and Ramona stories I read to my children. I felt the cold and smelled the hot chocolate. As a mother, I relived dressing my kids in the snowsuit on the few snow days we had back then. Over and over, strip, dry, redon the suits, rinse and repeat. It’s worth searching out and reading. In fact, my friend led me to read it on Open Library  . I also found it on LibraryThing  . I must admit that I wouldn’t pay $26 for this book, even if the pictures are retro fun.
