I am not enjoying the weather at all. We've had swings in the outdoor temperature, from below freezing into the 40s. That's bad enough, but the rain, sleet, and ice on the ground are what really bums me out. I am still terrified of falling, to the point where I know it is completely irrational but I cannot convince myself it is safe to take a step forward and keep finding myself at a standstill and desperate for someone or something to hang onto.
The Valentine Dinner Dance was enjoyable. Being so far from Valentines Day attendance was down (as could be expected). The dance always occurs on the Friday before the 14th. Unless Friday is the 14th, in which case attendance will soar and the energy in the room will likewise increase. Of our friends, two couples joined us at our table this year. Seeing them was very nice, particularly since I stay at our table for most of the evening. The last song of the night is almost always Moonlight Serenade and that is the only time I try to dance. I got through it without knocking anyone over so I'm calling it all good.
On Saturday and Sunday I didn't go anywhere, just out to hack Ingress. This suited me just fine as I finally started watching the episodes of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath that have piled up on my DVR. I think I made my way through eight hours of old episodes and I still have a bunch left to go. As in five or six or maybe even more as I didn't scroll all the way through the recorded list. I worked on cat beds while the shows played, finishing three over the course of the weekend. I'm getting close to having made 500 of the darn things, so it's no wonder I'm growing very tired of making them. I've decided that after I go through the yarn I have boxed up in the living room, I'm going to slow down on the crochet and work on knitted projects instead.
I also keep thinking I want to learn how to draw. I have some ideas about what I want to create, but I fear that years of computer typing have ruined my ability to do fine work with a a pen or pencil. Not that I could ever draw, it is that even my handwriting is now horrible.
