Catch Up

An inversion has moved into the valley. We've been five days of grey skies. No sun, no moon, just unrelenting grey. It's no wonder why I get depressed this time of year.

I have been knitting. In fact I've got my choice of four five projects to choose from. Two blankets: one sock yarn and one cotton. Grilltech's second sock. A sock yarn Ice Queen cowl for Perky. Or my own shawl Morticia. I haven't touched Morticia in over a year, so I should do something with it soon. It seems for whatever reason, I have a hard time completing stuff for me.

We are the plague house. Grilltech has a cold. Kommadant has kidney stones that he's going to have removed on Friday. Plus he has an infected bug bite that he's reacting to the medication. He's not having a fun time. On Friday, I'm going in to have a crown replaced, because I've got cash on the medical cards that we've got to use or lose.

Plan D

A couple of months ago, I picked up an Apple Watch. I gotta say, I really like it. One of the first things I did was order a face shield for it because you know: scratches and dings.

When I got the cover, it had a bunch of air bubbles. I thought it was pretty shotty, but slapped it on the watch anyway because it's better than nothing. I've been using it for several months and never had a problem.

Last night I popped the cover off, because there was water under it. Grilltech asked about the face plate. I handed it over to him, with the comment of how crappy it was. He gave me a look, peeled off the plastic from the underside and handed it back.

The shield is clear now. And I feel like an idiot.
