Year of Projects - Week 5

So another weekend...another snowstorm...we are expecting 8-14 inches starting today and snowing all day Monday...I am expecting another snow day...that'll be two we need to make up...that's enough...

This is our front yard right now (I just took it at 6:45 AM)
So another foot on top of that....and it's been cold too...brrrr.......

I'll be staying indoors...and playing indoor games....knitting, crocheting, blogging...and oh yeah maybe some grading, as we got an extension on grades because of last week's snow storm....I do have to run out at some point and gas up my car....but it's not an emergency...but I do have to turn it around in the garage or I'll never get out of the driveway on Tuesday....

But onto the knitting...and crocheting....

2015 Completed Projects:
White mittens - 1/10/15
Quick Crochet Cowl - 1/12/15
Stripes Cowl - 1/22/15
Frosty, the Snowman - 1/24/15
Head Wrap - 1/24/15

So nothing new is finished.....same ole, same ole....actually I did no crafting from Tuesday through Friday, as I had injured my's better now...but somehow I injured the deltoid and bicep muscles on my left arm...just very painful...I don't remember doing anything to them...but I can hardly move my arm right now without shooting pain, almost to the point of crying going to rest it...and I have some pain meds left over from my kidney stones...take them and some anit-inflammatories...and hopefully it'll heal....but I can still knit and crochet with it....

Mostly, when I could, I worked on my Hawk Baktus to try and finish it for today....not happening...but I'll continue to work on it...I also did add a bit to my Zuzu's Petals....but that is about it....

Okay took a pain pill and need to go lay down now, as it seems to be knocking me out...I'll read everyone's update later....

Love the colours in the Hawk Baktus, I hope your arm heals up soon it really doesn't sound like fun and I think two snow days is enough to have to make up for :)

Looks to me like you may have strained something while shovelling all that snow! If it doesn't get better quickly, then maybe consider some physical therapy. it's been doing wonders for Gavin's shoulder impingement!

It's pretty cold here too, so it looks like perfect knitting weather to me! We're expecting another 5-10 cm of the white stuff today. I'm about ready for spring!!

Oh snow. Sometimes, I wish we'd get a snowstorm that blows through here, drops an inch, and then said inch melts before the end of the day...but there's all of one plow in all of San Francisco (it was bought by mistake, apparently). It just doesn't snow here, ever...which is probably a good thing as some of those hills in the city are evil. Lombard Street (the famous one that winds down) is at least a 45° angle going up, if not more severe than that. And a lot of streets are like that. Ick.

We have non-stop rain, which I guess is better than snow, but I really don't mind the snow. Hope you feel better. Hubster is down with a bad cold and I just pray Diva Girl and I don't end up with it.

Your Baktus is lovely, gorgeous colours. Hope your arm heals quickly.

I hope those muscles soon calm down and 'behave themselves' again!

Hope your arm heals up quickly - perhaps a day or two of rest will improve things.

Baktus is looking great!

I hope your arm gets better. We have been snow bombed here too - it has been cold, but today we are at freezing point, which feels lovely!

Oh, I hope your arm gets better! Thank goodness you can still knit, crochet and grade papers. LOL!
Maybe you injured it shoveling all that snow?
Good luck to you this week and I hope you heal up!
