I am feeling rather flat these days, not unhappy, just flat. The uncertainty of the future is very wearing, but there is nothing to be done about it at present. Keep putting one foot in front of the other, I keep telling myself.

Today the sun shone! I had to run errands today, so off I went, and it was beautiful out there! The snow, the new snow that we received in the last few days, is melting, melting, melting. Apparently there is cold weather on the way this weekend, hopefully it will be the last of the seriously cold weather!

Today was also bill paying day, and doing some spring cleaning on the computers, they are quite a mess! Soon the weather will be nice and I won’t feel much like doing anything on the computer.

Last weekend when we did the grocery shopping, I spied some very nice looking avocados, but they were very, very green. Today they are ripe, perfect! Tonight’s dinner consists of Guacamole and corn chips for Attila, and Guacamole and low sodium crackers for me. I love Guacamole. I make it by mashing the avocado, then adding salsa to the desired consistency and taste, it is oh so simple and oh so good. The next meal I cook will probably be next Monday, I am so looking forward to trying out Bex’s dish!

There are a few jobs that need doing before the big window installation. The red pine flooring still hasn’t been moved out of the basement, Attila wanted to wait for warmer weather, as it was decided it would come out through a window. Since the window installation isn’t expected until April, there is still a large window of time within which to accomplish this.

As I”ve only just gotten up and gone thru the extremely painful process of walking around, getting dressed, navigating the stairs, getting my cuppa and giving Belle her pills and treats and getting myself with full cuppa in on hand and walking cane in the other, trying not to spill the cuppa all over my baskets of yarn next to my chair… by the time I get into my chair it’s just awful. I told my BFF just now that I didn’t even know the human body had this many places for pain. Sorry, but you caught me in the middle of my morning pain crisis and it takes a while to subside. I am making a pretty “denin” blue hat with Lion Brand Pound of Love yarn.
