and then a grey morning comes along

Sparkly, innit? That's exactly what it was NOT like this morning!

Sparkly, innit? That’s exactly what it was NOT like this morning!

Yesterday I was exhorting YoungB to make sure he kept cool and hydrated. Today I’m telling him to rug up and keep warm. It’s been a bit like that lately, with the weather fairly unpredictable and seeming to vacillate between (relative) extremes. (I know, I know, it’s either extreme or it’s not. Divergent conditions, then?)

He and I were out early this morning, he to row in a quad that had first to be rigged, I to stroll around the lake. I took my knitting in the hope that I would do a few rows in the car while I was waiting for him to finish training and pack up. I didn’t. There are occasions when even garter stitch is too taxing and I think the morning fell squarely into that category. As I said, at this time of year we’re like everyone else: tired. But, you know, gloomy or not and tired or not, I’d really better get cracking on that scarf or it won’t be under the Christmas tree!

I hope that your weather isn’t proving too much of a deterrent to your crafting endeavours; and, of course, that your afternoons turn out sunny even if the mornings are not. Luckily, that’s what has happened here.

    We have had some harsh storms – hello $3.5k hail damage to my car!

      😦 that’s such a drag. Commiserations. I well recall the hammertone finish that many local vehicles sported in Armidale when the hailstorms pounded them.

        Oh the upside the husband decided to upgrade my car after it’s repaired. There’s a little red Honda civic coming my way!

        Aha! So every cloud, however grey, really does have a silver – or, in your case, civic – lining!
