Well, the "blahs" are receding. They were helped on their way by the following sight while on my way to lunch with my friends. In fact, I did a u-turn (legal of course) and headed back to take some pictures.
There were HUNDREDS of gulls on this pond. It is a bit difficult to see in the pictures because I wasn't going to walk all the way around the pond (which is pretty big) in the cold (36 or so) to get a better shot. There were also some vultures/buzzards on the wing - HUGE wingspans!
Of course we had to take a "silly" one too!
After lunch I headed to Jo Ann's Fabrics hoping to pick up some bright, multi-colored thread for my hot pad project. They didn't have any! I was disappointed. I guess I might have to venture into Internet ordering IF I finish this hot pad and decide to embark on creating another.
Speaking of hot pads . . . I actually started crocheting yesterday. Hubby had to work late so I checked out Internet videos to get started. This is how far I got.
I have to think that starting to crochet with a TINY hook and THIN thread might not be the best way to start! I was working on the chain that is the one side of the grid for almost all afternoon before I got it to the point where it was good enough to move on to starting the grid! Now I have to make the grid into a square . . . that might take me a while!
I will show you a picture each post to keep you informed. Aren't you excited?
Voice Update: I freaked Hubby out when he got home by talking to him on the inhale. I needed to do some more inhale and wanted to talk to him at the same time so . . . it was convenient! I also did more massage yesterday - while watching TV and being frustrated with crocheting! My voice is pretty darn good at the moment! We will see how it is after a day at work!
