Is it Spring yet?


Winter is really dragging out this year, It is my first full winter in Chicago and the cold temps combined with the cloudy short days can really bring me down. I was born in the summer and I prefer heat and the long days of summer sun. In the winter I find my self going to bed by 10 and getting next to nothing done. I guess I only have a few more months to deal until the long sunny days return and I can once agian do my running out side.

Gene and I are moving into a new apartment at the end of March. I am really looking forward to the change, my days will be longer to accommodate the growing commute and my visits to a laundry mat, but I think it will be okay. We are moving in to a great neighborhood, called Lincoln Square it has lots of great shops, pubs and even a yarn store with in walking distance.



I have been knitting .....mostly hats, mittens and baby booties. Small projects work best for me this time of year. I find that they are a great distraction from the bitter cold we experienced this month. You would not even believe my gas bill, I all most had a heart attach right there at the mail box. What else is going on you ask? I have started my volunteer process at the Anti-Cruelty Society. It seams like a great place to help the community and my little furry friends who need a loving home.
