Crawling in here tonight to get this written before my brain turns to total mush. I feel it coming :)
I pushed myself beyond my limits a bit today and I fear I may regret it tomorrow. There was just too much I wanted to get done and wasn't settling for it not happening.
I bought a HUGE package of neck bones at the grocery store on Friday so today was broth cook down day. So I got that going early this morning and then spent the rest of the day being hungry because it smelled so good :-/
So now that all of the house work is done for the week , I can play the rest of the week.
It did take lots of cups of coffee like this one to get me through today.
After getting the broth on the stove I went to the basement to go through a couple of boxes down there. We are purging the basement and tomorrow is trash day so I wanted to get more sorted. This is a BIG JOB! Believe me!!
When I got down there I realized that my Aloe Vera that is wintering in the basement is in full bloom :)
Now our basement is unfinished and unheated and it gets pretty darn cold down there...but this guy must love it.
The Elephant Ears and the Papyrus are barely staying green.
It was a balmy 56° down there today so I was only able to go through 3 boxes and haul the trash out and re-box the recycle before I had to come up stairs to thaw out.
I then finished a new wool hat and felted it. It's drying in the spare bedroom right now. This one was made with some of my red and purple hand dyed yarns. I still have to make the decoration for it can't decide if I want another flower or just what.
I finished the other two hats last weeks. They are going to be gifts.
I've started another blue hat with the yarn in the above picture :) Can't wait to see how it turns out.
.... and this is one of the hats I made for charity last week. I forgot to take a picture of the other one.
Today I also started getting my seeds ready to start. Some I will be starting outside using the "winter sowing" method
and the others I will starting under grow lights. I'm getting over anxious for Spring and warmer weather ♥
