I won't list all the endless points again.... lets just say it would take a long time to get through the list and even then, I'd miss something. I don't think there is a single person on the Earth who hasn't been affected in some way. There were some astronauts on the ISS who were above it all! Then there were the people who went on a camping / paddling trip and were gone for a month and came back to a pandemic. They must have felt like it was some surreal Twilight Zone story or Hollywood movie script!
I'm happy to say that the effects have been light for us. More of an inconvenience. We don't travel much but it would be nice to go see our grand kids and other family. 😷 It all got closer to home when my daughter and son in law caught covid 19 last month, and I'm happy to report that they are doing okay, test negative now but are not without some lingering after effects. They are very tired, and have little stamina, but that apparently is very common and they will get by that in time.
This time of year is difficult due to the short days, long nights and bad weather. Just a few short days and we'll have the Solstice and things will begin their swing the other way again. There isn't much change the day after of course, but it just feels so much better regardless.
I took awhile to start weaving again after we took Rhaea back to the breeder. I was pretty upset and needed time. When I was ready, I had a rather dark broody painted warp on hand. I'm not even sure why I bought it as I normally go for brighter, more cheerful colours. It suited my mood and the year and so I pulled the project together quickly and it went on the Spring loom. It's 8/2 tencel hand painted with creams, silver, greys and even a touch of blue black.
