I am in a funk! I can’t get centered on anything to do. Made some very uninspiring beads, pulled out some quilting, spent an entire day installing and re-installing Parallels and Windows on my laptop, and got totally frustrated with it. Spent hours going through photos looking for something to hit me as a drawing, ZIP! Even toyed with the idea of finding my needlepoint stuff, but gave up when I couldn’t remember where I put it all. Sigh.

I’m sure part of it is the SAD, it’s been so cold and windy and cloudy, it’s hard to find the energy to do anything. We always have wind here, but this has been constant, a cold and bitter January wind. Just listening to it makes me want to crawl into my bed.

It’s been some years since I tried using light therapy, so I ordered one from Amazon. Hopefully it will give me some oomph! (I know that’s a word because the spell checker passed it.)

No flower pics, no bead pics, not even any bird pics, since the English sparrows have been swarming the bird feeder. I do have some Internet pics though.


That could go for Minnesota too.


I could see one of my cats doing this,

This is the United States, where 1 in 30 children have been homeless in the past year, and a baseball player just signed a contract that comes out to $68,000 a day for 13 years.

I can’t think of anything more to say, except that it makes me sad.
