A cold autumn day.......

I have just had a poxy little blue box appear on the tv screen saying that I am about to lose my free channels. I need to get a new viewing card. Screech. I cancelled our Sky subscription when Geoff died, and have been just getting the free satellite channels, which has been ok. Not great, but better than nothing, and now they want me to go and buy another card. I am less than impressed. Buying a new card does not even begin to feature on the List.

Just one of the little things in life which irritate one. I am definitely irritated.

I have taken life very slowly today. I did indeed fall asleep on the couch the moment I sat down yesterday evening, and woke at midnight. Last week was a mega week, and I am still feeling it. Next week will be another mega week, so I am trying to drift rather than march, if you see what I mean. I have spent a great deal of today on the phone to lawyers etc, and we have more meetings scheduled for next week. I have also taken down the last 2 posts for now. You can email me direct if you have any questions or answers. But things are starting to move at last. Slowly.

It has been really cold today. If I had been a little more active, I might not have noticed it as much as I have done. Thank heavens I got some fingerless gloves. They are my new best friends. I can even use the computer while wearing them! I would love to crochet some like the ones at Attic 24 - Lucy is absolutely amazing, and her blog is such a delight. If you haven't visited her before, run over as fast as you can right now at check it out. And she can crochet.....oh yes. I dream of arriving on her doorstep clutching some snuggly wool and a crochet hook and begging for a lesson. I want to be able to make a ripple blanket too. And birds. And flowers. And especially those wristwarmers. What a pity I have not got the faintest idea how to start. Groan. Her blog makes me smile. I just love it.

But please come back after you visit her....hello??? Are you still there??? Maybe not. If you don't know her yet, you will be wading through her archives, so I may as well sit here and chat to myself for a while.

Mumble. Mutter. Stupid tv. Coffee. Maybe that will cheer me up. I need chocolate.

Right. I need to snap out of the Mood. Here are 5 more things I am thankful for:
  1. Being able to talk to my family
  2. New gloves
  3. Warm and cosy bed
  4. A lawyer who is going to make a difference
  5. Hot coffee right here next to me

So much more I could add too. Remind me to tell you a little about Psalm 46. You will not BELIEVE what happened. If ever there was confirmation that God takes care of the details, my Psalm 46 story is it. That can wait till tomorrow.

I will have to pop over to her site to check it out, but I am sure you are loving those fingerless gloves.

I can imagine how tired you were after last week. You will need the week to recover before you tackle next week.

What a shame about the television. Is there nothing free anymore????

I can't wait to hear the Psalm 46 story! And I'm sorry I missed the last two posts - e-mail me and let me know what I missed!

I've been gone, of course, and checked mail often, but didn't have time to read blogs. I'm really behind! But priorities, you know, - I have a post up!

Did you hear that Oprah may take her show onto a cable network? We only get 3 free channels out here in the countryside and soon there will be nothing left on them! Hockey games and most sports are on TSN - even the Canadian curling games!! It's a big pet peeve of mine, this TV thing.

Please tell the Psalm 46 story. And have a laid back restful week! Oh, and do stay warm!!

I know how to crochet - will give you a lesson when I'm over there.
