Cold Weather and Perseverance

Perseverance seems to be the only way to get through this very long and snowy winter. I have even reached the point where I say to myself, "Oh, it is only three inches predicted-not seven!"

Slightly sick but if you don't justify you could go crazy. I have been feeling quite good but can't go out for fear of stray germs. I can't risk getting sick now as I have my LAST chemo treatment on Monday and I don't want ANYTHING to stand in the way of finishing treatments! So I am feeling especially stir crazy as I feel good but can't really go visit or shop or much of anything.

I have been knitting and finished a pair of socks for my friend Joan. They are VERY BRIGHT! I think they will suit Joan to a tee.

I have nearly finished another pair with that yarn that has aloe in it and they feel very nice! I should finish the second sock today. I am finding that socks are so comfortable for me to knit. Really quite mindless knitting. Socks are very suitable for chemo brain-that inability to concentrate on anything to complicated for long. I am not really able to concentrate to read for long either. It has to be pretty light reading, too. It will get better-all uphill after Monday!

Whatever you may be sure of, be sure of this,
that you are dreadfully like other people. - James Russell Lowell

One of my dad's favorite saying was "by the end of February, winter's back had been broken". We're there, so spring is just over the horizon now!

Glad to hear you're feeling better.
