The Week That Was...

Kind of Lost. A bad cold has kept me down most of this week. 'Tis the Season. :) Sniffle. Sneeze. Cough, cough.

I've been too tired to do much of anything besides sleep and read, so most of my projects came to a grinding halt. That is the strange thing about a cold: the effort to do anything is enormous, and the mental lassitude makes things even harder. I pretty much gave up the effort.

So over the past few days, I've done little more than sleep and read. I did manage to sew the appendages to my poor limbless sock monster and remove the pins that held some on.
He is certainly much happier.

This morning has been much better; hope I'm at the turning point and now on the road to recovery.


  1. Your monster is wonderful! Think how he would feel with a stopped up nose.

    I hope you continue to improve.

  2. Oh, he came together nicely. I do love the nose - it has me humming Inka Dinka Doo.

    Be better.

  3. i hope you continue to improve. i love this sock monster.

  4. He's so funny. That nose! Is that how your nose is feeling?

  5. he's just perfect. where will he live?

  6. glad to hear you have turned the corner and are on the road to recovery.

    what a lovely little monster

  7. Kay - Thanks, and he'd feel pretty stuffy!

    Kim - Well, he does have a schnoz to equal Durante!

    Paula - Thanks, I'm on the mend!

    DebH - :) I'm just glad I don't have his nose!

    ACey - He will be going to one of the twins for Christmas. Still have another one to make.

    kimy - Thanks! Still not much energy, but feeling better!

  8. Cute lil monster! Merry Christmas to you and yours, and I hope you feel better very soon.
