I'm really anxious, I have to admit. I'm anxious about the inauguration. I'm anxious that so many people are saying "I've been so careful about the pandemic so now I'm just going to go do something I don't need to do just because I'm bored." I'm anxious that my Mom in an assisted living facility can't get the vaccine but apparently a whole lot of lower risk people can. I'm anxious about students and the second wave---at the UO, we had 101 cases during the first week of classes where ALL CLASSES ARE ONLINE. I'm anxious about the new strain of the virus. I'm just anxious.
I keep trying to think of 'grace' and it is so, so hard.
I guess that's why I'm reading so many cozies.
I haven't been able to concentrate on knitting, but I can cook, so I've been doing some cooking. And yesterday I played around with doing etching on slate. I think I like it better than etching on glass. These were the first two good ones.
And here is a mindless sock. This is some fun yarn from Regia (I think?) that I got from Little Knits (if you don't shop from them, you should. Discounted name brand nice nice nice yarn).
What are you doing to deal with anxiety? I know I'll calm down by tomorrow so please don't worry about me. Just stay safe and breathe.
