The beads are sitting on my work table, waiting to be put to use. The colors are nice and bright in the sun coming through the back window. However I've hardly been able to pick up a hook or needle for several months now. My joints have been rebelling, especially the hands and feet. This is something that started in September and has been an on-again, off-again condition.
I wouldn't be mentioning this, except that I've been getting a lot of questions about what I'm doing, why I've been so quiet and when is the next String-Along. All I can say is, "I don't know." Some days even a keyboard is beyond my capabilities.
We have had a nice long run of delightfully warm, 70 degree sunshine. However, the weather here in Tombstone AZ has now turned to winter. It's been raining and it was snowing yesterday morning. The woodpeckers and the curved bill thrasher are keeping me company. Every morning I watch them from my desk as they poke around the big dish.
