This Weather Is Going To Kill Me

I knew I wasn’t feeling well when I got up yesterday, but it wasn’t anything I could point to and say, Aha! that’s the problem. I ended up sleeping in my recliner for several hours in the middle of the afternoon and still went to bed early last night. I didn’t wake up until 9 am this morning and everything hurts. It got down to freezing last night and even though the house is comfortable my body knows what the weather is doing out there! Ugh.

It’s up to 40° now and I can switch the heat off of emergency and back to the regular heat pump setting. Brad is at church and after he takes the grandkids back to the farm he’ll bring us lunch from Cotton Patch. He has a taste for their chicken tacos and I love their grilled salmon.

It’s almost 9:45 in the morning and I think the best thing I can do is get into a hot shower and then use the Cryofreeze on my joints and hands and try to get some relief that way. It’s annoying. It keeps me from doing what I want to do many times, but this too shall pass. When the weather is in the 70’s one day and raining, then it’s clear, sunny and freezing the next day I can guarantee my body is going to know about it!

So. Hot shower. Cryofreeze. Warm clothing. Coffee. In that order. Then, perhaps I’ll grab one of my knitting projects and putter along until Brad gets home with lunch later. It’ll be later than usual since he has a board meeting after the Sunday service.

Have a blessed Sunday, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
