Gimme Shelter........Rinna watches the world


Rinna

Recommended Posts

Q1.png

 

What.  The.  Hell.

The world has gone officially insane.  


Last challenge went......okay.  Kept up the alternate day fasting until Friday.  Took 3 days off to reset.  Lost 9 pounds.  Didn’t yoga due to rotator cuff injury.  Did some rowing, some walking, but not enough.  I found it hard to work out on fasting days.  I just didn’t have the energy.

This challenge I will continue on with the alternate day fasting, with 3-4 days of some sort of exercise.  Yoga if/when shoulder stops it’s nonsense.


We will be sheltering in place as of today, I’m hoping we don’t have to go out again.  (Had to go out yesterday for boy-o’s inhaler). Our stores have been empty of so many things.  No paper products, no ground beef, lunch meat, eggs, milk, pasta, beans, rice,  even chips are picked over.  It’s so bizarre.  And the lines.......


And so the world turns my friends.  Stay safe.  Stay healthy.  Stay connected.

Yea, it seems like we've all stepped into a horror movie or slipped into an alternate reality.  Good luck with the huddling and the challenge!!

Luckily I can knit, and download books. And I have oodles of movies.  I’ll be trying to knit socks......my friend says toe up is easier.

My daughter tried to teach me toe-up (two-at-a-time no less ....), but I reverted back to my top down version.  I just finished one pair ..... next is a watchcap for hubby, I'm afraid.  

 

I did get a bunch of cozy mysteries and some fantasy books to go along with all of the Ramen I picked up.

Not interested in two at a time, at least not now.  I made one pair, years ago, top down.  It went okay.  I’m trying again before I give up on them.

I took pictures in my Walmart and got a look from some dude.  I just said that this is a big event and I’m gonna document it.  I’m pretty sure that my 91 year old grandma is the only one to see rationing or whatever (ww2), until now.  It’s weird.....

Congrats on the weight loss! Are you still doing the rowing? There are lots of other Dark Horse video on youtube too. I enjoy his follow alongs. I don't have to worry about the pace, I just follow his pacing

The story thus far........

4 days into zero week. 


2  3.25 mile walks.  Went a new (for hubby) route on a walk with neighbors on Sunday.  (I know, social distancing and all.  But no more.  For now). Hubby liked the challenge, as there’s moar hills.  More hill anyway 😉. Did it again yesterday, just us two.  

On my second fasting day today.  Monday went well, wasn’t really hungry, but all the P.M. food commercials did cause a Pavlov response.....

 

Started and frogged 2 sock toes.  I found that I didn’t like the wedge toe that many knitted sock patterns have.  One of those frogged attempts was me trying to make a rounder toe, which failed miserably.  Then I finally found someone who figured out a round toe, and ever so kindly shared that pattern with the world.  So I’m now on attempt #3, and so far it’s going well.

 

So that’s it for now.  Hope everyone is doing well with the “social distancing” and “self quarantine”.  My hardest thing is wanting (insert food from elsewhere here).  But what if they have “it”?

Sporadically.  My rotator cuff is being an ass, so I’m taking it easy, and only rowing when it’s not hurting. The dark horse videos are great, and I enjoy not having to worry about the pace as well.

Very nice! What are the white things? I've made socks before and didn't use anything like that, so I'm curious.

Dental floss.  It was my first time doing the fish lips kiss heel, so I ran life-lines in case I made a major boo-boo.  It’s on the back burner right now, tho.  Some of my knitting buddies and I are participating in the Traveling Afghan project by Lion Brand Yarn.  The newest square just came out so I’m working on that right now.  And I’m going to learn how to do the next sock on 2 circular needles.  Nothing else to do, so I’ll learn new things and knit.

Sorry, too much information ..........😃

Life-lines will save your work.....and your sanity on a difficult (or long) project.  You don’t have to frog (or tink) as far back.  One shawl I did had 4 or 5 in it!

So, the last two weeks have been a dumpster 🔥.

 

The Dragon locked me in the darkness, and force fed me many jelly beans.  The mulligrubs and dunwannas kept watch.  Evil little beasts. And, It’s been snowing.  Again.  

 

Social distancing, pms crap, normal brain crap have been weighing heavy on me.  I try to remember that I am blessed, I am loved, this won’t last forever (or will it?) etc.  Add in all the weird propaganda type commercials I’ve been seeing, and I start getting paranoid.

 

We decided to plant some potatoes that sprouted in the pantry.  Just to see what’ll happen.  And some onion bulbs.  And soon, some sweet potatoes, once the seed potatoes come.  (My local store has no potatoes of all things.  But I did find some toilet paper.....)  So we are becoming potatoes farmers.  We even built a compost bin. Once the weeds start growing, we’ll be able to start that.  
 

I continue to knit my sock.  Will be done soon (ish) and start the other.  I’m *thinking* of trying two at a time, once this pair is done.  Why not?  I never thought I’d be knitting on 2 circulars, but I learned.  Not a whole lot else to do, so lets learn more things.

 

Didn’t fast last week.  Was not anywhere near the mental place needed for that.  Not really there now, either, but I’m gonna try again.

 

Feeling grumpy and blue, but trying to not be.  Thank goodness my honey is being super understanding.  And doesn’t flee when I start crying all over him. 😫

 

TTFN my lovelies.
