Hi there! Almost through first month of 2021 and nothing major has happened. A small delay in returning to the office meant I got to spend a couple more weeks at home with John. COVID is still out there but Dan’s strict measures meant we got through lockdown unscathed! A good start to a good year. The disease is still out there so hopefully the Australian Open doesn’t spark a new wave. Fingers crossed.
I still haven’t done any textile work which, marks 6 months of no knitting, spinning, weaving, crochet or even dyeing. I think my mind is worse off, I can’t unwind properly and it is doing me in a little. I have replaced that with the ukulele, it is not quite the same but the good news; I’m improving my technique. I still have trouble with bar chords and I dispise the B chord, but practice makes progress, right?!
The weather has been a bit stupid of late, 37°C one day, 19°C the next. I can’t even pack away my winter clothes! It is nice getting the summer rains though. My Sunflowers and Nasturtiums are doing great. So are the boys out back. For the most part, Ozzie loves being visited and enjoys his cuddles. Chaser is slowly coming around… slowly being the emphasized word! From mid next month I will contact the shearer and have him visit for a haircut and pedicure!
I have been re-reading the Dresden Files and enjoying it still. I have also watched some good DVD’s. It was slow to begin with but Picard was an enjoyable watch. I loved Good Omens (a blast from the past), we also watched Doom Patrol Season 2, Westworld Season 3, Stargirl Season 1, NCIS: New Orleans Season 6 and some Andromeda (Andromeda is a little predictable but it is not too taxing on the old brain.)
Well, that about wraps it up for now. I am wishing you all a fantastic year, remember: No matter where you go, there you are!
