Porta-Post

And no, it's not working. A post from my device, that is. Frustrating. As to brace the Siberia of my office which now holds a treadmill and a door that won't close and also an iffy laptop that objects to being moved and goes off in a sulk, is challenging.

So this is a post from a week ago:

I'm basically testing this post on a different platform. I've been hoppin' busy. Good busy. Like I'm accomplishing things.

I may be delusional.

Yeah, I treadmill and yeah, it hurts. And cramps in my legs at night frighten me. And one of my specialists is thawing out and oozes competence. One of my....Did you hear that? Do I win this week's MedSpeak contest?

On other fronts, and there are many, I will be moving from one paradise to another. More on that later.

Meanwhile I offer you this picture of my knitting, my porta-knitting vs the big shawl I'm also working on, which inadvertently pleased some artistic eyes even though that effect was unintended.

And we had a bad storm after all that, frightening hurricane winds, power outages and evacuations. A reminder, once again, that Mother Nature's rage can be fearsome.

Thanks to all who sent me messages and blog concern. Always appreciated.

    1. Colourful dishcloths. Easy to carry in my darling dog's old car purse. It held her water, small bowl,leash and scoop bags.

      I'm on two minds on the move though it has to be made. But this place holds my heart and best memories.

  3. We were in that storm too here in the mountains, 20 inches of snow, wind blizzarding around the house, freezing cold. I was so happy that the power didn't go out. Hope to hear about your move and I hope it is good for you. We will have to move at some point in the future and are not looking forward to it.

    1. Frightening, Sharyn. My poor daughter was worse off, siding off her house and winds pushing 150k. She was terrified.

      I'm not looking forward to myove either. The initial euphoria has worn off. I cry when I see sun on the water in front of my old house.

      Staying in the moments.

  4. Yes, I see the arty side of your photograph - a kind of " the still life of knitting". Nice pattern by the way - wonder if I could do that...probably not!

    A move? I can see the sense in it but realise it'll be a wrench for you. Back to the city - or even the Old Country (that'd be exciting!)

    1. No not the old country T, I couldn't handle that for long stretches, Canada has spoiled me and Newfoundland even more so.
      Ill write about it today or tomorrow including those idiotic misgivings that intrude now.

  6. From the UK I looked with some concern at the stretch of very bad weather moving over your part of the world. I'm very glad you've survived the worst. I'll be really interested in your move- it's one of those decisions we'll all have to make sooner or later! Take care xxx

  8. Whew - you scared me for a bit! I believe those early tears and heart breaks really do make us stronger Wise. I see the view of your house from the water - what a sweet place it is. You will be fine - you know that.
    love,
    Betty

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
