Progress is Slow

Progress is slow.
It has been a busy week.  My co-worker took a few days off to go to Florida.
It doesn't look like the weather had been good, at least by her FB pictures.  
I have been working more because of it.  
I have also finished the scarf I made for myself and that turned out great.  
Too bad you can't feel the yarn.  It is a chunky alpaca yarn and is so incredibly soft!
 I have also been working on a pair of socks.  They were on hold until I finished the scarf.
I'm doing them on rather short circular needles for socks.  I have started on the heel flap.
Progress has been slow on His Eye is on the Sparrow.
There is a new tree, a weird animal near the urn of oranges, might it be a hyena? A crown, bird, flower, owl and something that may be a fox.  I'm starting on another star.  
 A little closer up.  
Then there has been a lot of time spent on assisted living and my mom.  She had the interview with the nurse last week and that went fine.  Now, I have a checklist of things I need to work on.  That is where the co-workers vacation is complicating things.  I don't have time to make phone calls.  The one thing I really need to do is find a mover:  2 guys and a truck type.  I have one I want to try and call tomorrow in between clients just so I can settle on a date.  Once that happens, everything else will fall into place with work.  I am thinking of taking the week on March 9th off to get the move and all the extraneous things done.

My sister and her family were here this weekend and did some organizing.  She went through pictures and a little of the closet.  She did take her shopping for underwear and that was really helpful.  My sister of course had to let me know that mom has mixed emotions.  Boy, don't I already know that.  My sister and her family now realize that this is the best thing.  They last saw her in July and have noticed she has slipped.  I only talk about my mom.  We are going through similar things with my mother in law.  Her name is on the list there too but, haven't heard on her at a time.

Trying to find time for the stitching because that helps keep me sane.  Good thing is that it is portable and I can take it with me.  Hopefully the week will be smooth.

Keep on stitching


  1. My best thoughts are with you as you make hard decisions and face difficult changes. Your sampler is beautiful.

  2. Caring for a loved one is difficult in the best of situations. Prayers for you and your family.

  3. You are so right about stitching keeping one sane. I will be keeping you in my thoughts. I know that all this is not easy.
