|Snow just starting to get slushy ...|
Ignore the date stamp.
Mutter mutter ... stupid camera ...
|The Big Thaw, Take 1.|
The Great Lakes where storm drains are still frozen!
I managed to do a little personal research
on the general topic of
SENIORS and FALLS ...
Roads are covered with (dangerous) gravel
where they are not hidden by The Great Lakes.
|Look at this!|
The date stamp is right for a change!
|Dry and somewhat gravelly sidewalks today.|
So far today, that is!
I have been working on my multicoloured cardigan ...
|Lots of colours!|
|"Look! These circular knitting needles mean there's|
a HOLE IN THE MIDDLE of the knitting!
Just right for me to pop up through!"
In the meantime, here's a little teaser from one of my small projects:
|What the heck is all this wooly loopy stuff???|
|And why am I taking the scissors to it???|
I've been feeling a bit guilty because I'm not blogging as often as I intend to. I've decided the reason is computer fatigue. Please bear with me while I explain. My work day is pretty much glued to my computer, so by the time evening or the weekend rolls around, I don't want to look at another computer monitor or laptop screen. I don't even want to be in the same room with another piece of modern technology. Well, except maybe my tea kettle! After supper, I quite often think to myself "I should blog about ..." and then I think about the effort of booting up my laptop and how weary my eyes are from staring at my computer monitor most of the day. So I go back to my tea and knitting instead.
I'm noticing a number of friends who were very active bloggers / Facebookers / texters, etc are doing a lot less of that sort of thing. When I ask about it, I usually hear similar versions of my comuter fatigue theory.
Are we burning ourselves out with technology? Do we need to return to hand-writing letters to communicate with friends and family? What are YOUR thoughts on this???
