Sudden changes

The weather has suddenly turned cold and wet 
The Easter weekend, mostly, was warm and pleasant

But as always after the full moon the weather changed, and boy is it different today 

I woke up feeling ordinary, 
Pretty sure it’s just from a very busy weekend 
I looked out the window and saw it was raining pretty hard
So I made the instant decision to just go back to bed 
I wasn’t in the mood to swim 

So I’m now sitting on the couch working on my new blanket 
It’s called autumn harvest 
It’s a big blanket, I’ve added stitches and I’ve added a few extra repeats 
I’m hoping by the time it’s big enough to cover me it will be really cold and it
Will keep me snuggly and warm 

I hope the weather is nice where you are. If not. Stay inside and keep crafting 


  1. I love waking to the rain but I wouldn't be going anywhere in it! Enjoy your inside, crafty day.

    1. Oh yes. Love the sound of it. But I didn’t want to drive in it. I’m still a bit anxious after the last person hit my car

  2. Hasn’t been heavy here - just drippy drizzly wet. Cool not cold. Was glad of underground parking at the nursing home this morning though. Pumpkin Soup for dinner this evening plus some rice pudding with stewed plums and pears.
    That’s going to be a good looking blanket…..do you still have the blue one you made recently or has it been gifted
    Take care

    1. Nope still have it.
      I’ve got quite the collection lol
      It’s the perfect size for sitting on the couch

  3. Enjoy your day inside with your crochet hook

    1. It was nice to just sit and rest. And I got lots done

  4. I didn't know you were a swimmer.

    "I hope the weather is nice where you are."

    The weather here in western Oregon, USA sounds just like what you're having.

    1. Well when I say swim I mean we kinda doggie paddle up and down the pool. But it’s enough exercise for us I usually spend about two hours but today only did one and a half.

  5. I have hard time thinking down under is cold.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

    1. Yup our seasons are flipped from those in the northern hemisphere
