This must be what asthma feels like

Home sick w bronchitis, finishing a sock, slowly slowly. Knit across the row, put it down, close eyes, open eyes, knit across another row. Blue Danube, forever Froggy the Frog in my brain, playing on NPR.
So wish I could master this blog with putting in photos. It defeats me.

April - first warm day

K... I have bronchitis so a little difficulty breathing here. finished the Spring Seeds shawlette (neckerchief) in Quince & Co Chickadee in the Snap Pea colorway.

I Washington DC last week, at the Farmer's Mkt in Dupont Circle. Bought some lace wt yarn from Solitude Yarns.

The challenges in my life seem pretty high right now. Trying to learn the simplest thing, putting up pictures. None of the hosting sites seems easy. So I'm struggling. And it's dark.

Fresh Mkt Dupont Circle

cool air feels like a kiss

OK I truly thought Washington DC would be lovely. It was a nice break, that is, from the recent snow and the dirty snowbanks... Cherry blossoms, outside farmer's mkts.

Getting a Grip

Trying to improve on this blogging thing, it's something I should be good at but oddly am not. Maybe it just takes time, something I don't have in quantity and manage poorly at the best of times.
Also I think it takes organization and computer smarts... I have a sneaking feeling I do things the long way, every time. And there's the aspect of sharing personal stuff which isn't my intention.

However, I'm at home today due to the wretched snow, a northeaster, on April 1st. About the storm, each cubic foot of this snow weighs a ton. Started for work, went by my exit-on purpose, deciding at the almost the last moment it was hardly worthwhile, then couldn't find a place to turn around. My slight panic made the windows fog and cars came out of nowhere. Who knew they don't even plow on that side of the turnpike?? How far would I have driven had I not turned the defroster to high and come to a sheltered place under the pines where there was a recently plowed driveway?

So I am home, where I can knit.
