Moping along with the Moogies

Progress as of 1/21/13
Given my lacklustre stitching persona at present, all I have been able to do is mope along on the outer border of this piece.  No color changes, no counting, just stitching by rote ... but progress nonetheless.  This sort of stitching was made for low energy times like these.  And even so, I haven't done much of this sort either, as evidenced by these photos.  Compare Moogies when last seen with current progress.

Progress as of 1/29/13
I am sure the bizarre weather patterns lately have a lot to do with the way I am feeling.  Three days ago, we had single digit temps with wind chill factors below zero.  Yesterday, we had temps in the 20s and started out with snow, then icy hail, then freezing wintry mix of rain and snow and sleet, which froze on the cold, cold ground.  Today, the weather forecasters are predicting temps in the 40s with partly cloudy skies and tomorrow, temps in the 50s. By the weekend, we should settle back down to more normal temps hovering around the freezing point.  How can anyone recover her health or her equilibrium with such crazy fluctuations?  I am fantasizing about being a wealthy lady of the turn of the last century, wealthy enough to afford an extended stay in a beautifully situated sanatorium in the mountains.  I wouldn't care if it were cold, just so long as it were consistently so.  Maybe if I had beautiful views to gaze upon and clean mountain air to breathe, a modicum of exercise and good healthy food I didn't have to prepare myself ... maybe I could start feeling more like myself.

Hi, stopping by as I saw your blog over at my friend Linda's SUch is Life's blog. I know what you mean, January is such a hard month to get motivated. This looks really lovely, so just had to comment.

I am sorry to read that you are still feeling under the weather. You may not see much progress but any progress is good. Hope you feel better soon.

Progress is progress and Moogies is looking great.
