Being thankful on a rainy Saturday morning

I live in Southern California and we’ve been in a drought for so long.  This year is the most rain I’ve seen in a long time.  I forgot how to live in rain.  It’s not fun.  I know for those of you in more wintery weather laugh at us SoCal people but we’re just not used to it.  When we got the first rain, I was thankful, grateful for it.  Now I can’t wait to see the end of it.  We’ve got flooding.  I had to buy my boy pants to wear to school!  He lives in his basketball shorts and he absolutely hates to wear pants.  But with the weather being what it has been, he’s grateful for them.  Yesterday, it was storming so bad and I had to drive in it!  lol.  Okay, there’s enough complaining.  Now that I’m snug in my home with my coffee and my computer I am okay with the rain.  I am grateful that it’s here and hopefully it’s one step closer to being out of this drought.  I’m not sure what the status is on that and I don’t care.  I will continue to conserve water as I do and not be wasteful with it.

I’m getting into a groove again.  I think I said this last week.  But it’s still true.  I’m starting to recognize my routines.  The best thing is jotting them down and finagling them to find the best routine and habits.  It’s working and helping me get myself organized again.  One of my team members submitted her resignation yesterday.  There’s another change but it is what it is.  I wish her the best and hope it doesn’t cause too much disruption in the overall scheme of things.  Thankfully we have two weeks to plan and adjust.  Other than that, I didn’t get to yoga all week and I’m really sad about that.  I enjoy going to yoga.  I’m hoping I’m able to go this coming week.

Today, I’m helping a friend move and then this evening a group of us are gathering at a friend’s house to get together post-Valentines.  I can count on good food, good conversation, and one of our friends will be continuing her lessons on crocheting a slipper.  I got one slipper done during the SuperBowl.  I tried to do the second slipper since then on my own but could not figure out how to do a Half Doube Chain?  I know I could have googled it but it’s not high on my crafty to do list so I chose to wait until we see each other again tonight.  Thank goodness it’s a 3 day weekend.  I can be social tonight and spend the following two days secluded in my craft room (office).  🙂

On the crafty side of things, I got a lot of knitting done this week.  I’m well on my way to finishing the magenta socks and if all goes as planned I should be finished by next weekend.  I haven’t done any quilting related stuff and very little cross stitching.  I did get my drawstring bags prepped and partially put together.  I need to figure out what the next step is and do it.  I hope to have time this weekend to go through my closet.  I am a bit disorganized with my quilty stuff which is why I’m not able to do much on that end of things.  To be fair, I’m finishing the top for Have yourself a quilty little Christmas and I’m not mentally ready to do my next project.
