As a grandparent, one runs the risk of being exposed to little peoples' viruses. We both managed to get what we are calling Daycare Virus 2019. Of course, the little guy was only sick for about 5 days. We have been coughing and sneezing for 4 weeks now, and counting. The good news is that we are improving.
Meanwhile, outside, it has been snowing, and snowing, and snowing.
This is the view from my living room window.
This is the path we have cut to the front door. The sidewalk underneath is ice. Leaving the house is an adventure. The city has done some plowing, but we keep finding spots that they missed. Some, I fear, will be lost for the rest of the winter.
On the up side, we are now over the hump and will start sliding into spring, over the next 6 weeks.
My house plants have been trying to cheer us up.
The amaryllis has bloomed on the first flower stock. There are at least three more flower stocks in the pot, you can see two of them in the picture.
The Christmas cactus has decided to be a Valentine cactus, and its efforts are appreciated.
I have not done any sewing in nearly a month. However, I made another Charlotte Bonnet for a baby due soon.
It just needs its last end tucked in and an i-cord for the bonnet string.
Today is Family Day, which for us means no commitments, so we have been doing some much needed tidying, a bit of laundry, and some cleaning. I bought some zipper by the metre, and managed to get it put away.
The colours are rather boring, but the rest of the bag usually makes up for it. Now I just need to master adding zipper pulls to size 5 zippers, since I have only done size 3 up until now. I have 3 bags on my list to make right now, so I need to get back to my sewing.
