Layers

Its minus 9C out there. Minus bloomin' 9. The snow has turned to ice. 3in thick ice on my little side street.

I think I shall try and stay inside for the rest of the day, although I had to go out for lunch supplies - the wonders of the last day before getting groceries.

I'm wearing several layers of clothes in an attempt to keep warm as well as snuggling under a couple of fleece blankets and switching between checking the internet and working on some gorgeous tweedy granny squares in chunky yarn for really keeping warm under.

Am gonna need a shed load of chunky black yarn for outlining/joining them with, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it; today I'm thinking about cooking. I did some proper cooking on friday - finding what I had in the fridge and produce rack and making an ensemble meal of stuffed pork, pasta, carrots and roasted butternut squash and apples - and it felt good; actually doing something creative and productive not related to yarn for the first time in days.

The days have been slowly blurring together and I've been desperately trying to remember to journal a few lines either online, or on paper, but I've mostly failed to in the last few weeks; partly during to my being introvertedly focused on things in my head, and partly due to lack of energy to pick up the pen or open the laptop. But I do need to journal.  Its so useful to have it as an aide-memoire during exceptionally foggy periods and to mark time in the blurred together days; to prove they aren't wasted days. So theres something at least for me to be remembered by; that my life had as much value as anyone elses.  That probably says more about me than anything my journals will say....
