Under The Weather

Today I am battling a chest cold, so I have been staying pretty close to my recliner and cup of tea...

There is a lot of work that needs to be done though, so I did drag myself over to the computer for a few hours. I am in the middle of revising and editing all the gardening newspaper columns that appeared in the Daily Sitka Sentinel this year to put them in a book. I want to have it done in time for the "Grow Sitka" expo this coming March so I really need to put in some hours.

It's so much easier to sit in my recliner and crochet as I dream about all the things I want to accomplish than it is to actually do the work.
