That may, or may not, be a word, but it describes how I've felt yesterday and today.  Just no energy, no interest.  And not the usual Depression lacks, but a physical "blah."

Currently, I'm working on a bear for the Mother Bear Project.  I've made a couple of bears for them in the past, and it's a fun way to use leftover yarns.*  Plus, you know that somewhere, some child might have a new friend one day, and a reason to smile a little.

For some reason, Madeleine wants to curl up in my lap all the time lately.  This picture was taken a while ago, but this is what I'm dealing with, even as I type this:
This makes knitting a leeeetle complicated, as either the yarn or the needles moving trip her swat alarm.  She particularly likes chewing on bamboo needles.

The other day, I came across this photo on the Web somewhere.  This horse looks precisely like my horse, Star, when she was pregnant.  In fact, I sort of had to make sure that it wasn't a picture of her.  It makes me miss those days around the barn.

*Although they will provide yarn for you, if you'd like.


  1. Awwww, the Mother Bear Project sounds so perfect. I want to see your finished bear.

    I didnt know you had horses. I'd miss them too! I love watching horses trot and run. We are going to the Outer Banks this summer and I am going to tour the wild horses out there

  2. Looking at that horse makes me glad I am long past child-bearing years.
