For some reason that song has been running through my head today. I suppose it's because after three days of brain fog and a moving headache, I am feeling better and hoping that I might be able to do some stuff that I've been unable to do lately. The pain in my head would morph from a vertical, migraine like pain which felt like someone was inside my face trying to hack their way out the right side with an ice pick, to a horizontal mask of sinus pain. Add to this several nights with hardly any sleep and it all equals brain fog and an inability to concentrate on anything much. I got up this morning, ate breakfast, had a cup of coffee, took some medication, went back to bed for a while, then got up and made some fish chowder for lunch. I still have some sinus pressure, but am feeling better than I have been.
I have had this book from the library since before Christmas and had planned to be done with it by now.
Haven't done much on the stitching front, either. I have a cross-stitch project in progress that I planned to be working on, but there is a lot of counting with that one and I decided to set it aside until a day when I can better concentrate on it. I have been able to work on a tatted mat made of motifs--I have done so many of these motifs over the past few months that it's all kind of automatic now. This is my mindless project--I always try to have one of those ongoing for times such as this, when I can't really concentrate well on other stuff. Usually I have a length of thread left after weaving in the ends on each motif. I hate to waste stuff, and if the thread is long enough, I make a center ring for another motif. If it's not long enough for that, I save it for cross stitching. I grabbed one of my older charts and started stitching with these scraps, changing colour whenever I ran out.
There was more snow overnight, but it's all gone now. The rain and wind have arrived and from what I hear, both are going to pick up as the day goes on. Some places have been warned about high waves--some places last year had a lot of flood damage in a storm like this. Hopefully people will not suffer the same sort of damage this time.
