A Plague Upon Our House

Having a tiny germ collecting human had yet again caught up with me. This past week has had me down with the flu. The honest to god fever, chills, body aches, coughing, snotty flu, I….was….miserable! Taking care of a 4 1/2 month old jellybean who simultaneously decided not to sleep for more than three hours at a stretch was all I could manage. I literally did not knit a stitch for 7 days and didn’t leave the house for 5.

The flu is no joke this year! And I even got the flu shot but I hear it wasn’t terribly effective this go round. Thankfully jellybean only got a runny nose and wee cough. Thank god for breastmilk antibodies! So hopefully next week will bring me back to my fiber adventures. (Grandma and Grandpa are coming for the weekend…hallelujah! This momma needs a nap.)

I hope everyone else is in good health!

Let Me Reintroduce Myself..

Hello, my name is Rachelle and I’ve been an absentee knitter and blogger….

It’s been over a month since my last post. Between the winter blahs and some less than fun medical issues I decided to go “dark” for awhile. I read a lot of books, took walks with my pups, worked on some home organization, and lots and lots of time with my beloved husband. I didn’t read any blogs, used my smartphone only when necessary, and barely picked up my needles at all. I’ll pause for your gasps of horror, lol.

Oh my, was it soooo needed! I had seriously lost my mojo for almost everything. It’s not quite all the way back yet. But I am getting there. I think my priorities have shifted a little. (My home is certainly cleaner for it.) And now I have a better idea of what I want to accomplish in 2014. Have you ever taken a step back to rearrange yourself or searched for a new balance? I highly encourage it in this fast paced digital world!

Stay tuned…this is going to get exciting!
