It has been weeks since I have had anything worth posting here. I seem to be stuck in a rut. I don't feel like carving or working on embroidery. In fact, I can't sit still at all. I've been cleaning, folding laundry (which is sooo not right) and spending hours on the treadmill.
We had been planning on going letterboxing this week, but now the forecast is calling for rain every day--so nothing to talk about there either.
February/early March is typically a difficult time of year for me. I've been stuck inside for too long and the only contact I have with the earth is the mud that comes in on Kirby's tail.
And then there is the writing thing. It's sort of consuming me at this point.

Don't give up on me though. In a few weeks (right about the time the smell of spring dirt invades my senses) I'll hit my stride again. By then, I'll be done with my 1st novel rewrite and ready to set it aside for a bit. PZ Kut will be back in production (I'm also planning on attempting a linoleum carve) and we'll all get rid of our rubber DTs. I'll be ready to plant seeds, hike trails and ignore my housework once again.
Life will be grand. If I can just get past March.


  1. A couple of things:

    1. What are DTs?

    2. No one is every going to check the 'boring' box, my friend!

    You know I'm not a fan of this time of year, that's for sure. Can't wait until the sun decides to hang out a bit. It's OK if you are stuck - I'll just happily wait until you have more to say on this blog (no pressure, honestly!)

    Even when you have nothing much to say, it's interesting :-)

  2. Liz is right, my friend. I enjoyed reading this!

    This is a drab time of year to be sure. I've been in a rut with carving for a while - dang those hormonal slumps!

    When the posts are fewer, I look forward to reading them all the more! :o)

  3. DTs="delirium tremens", a side effect of addiction detox.

  4. Stacy, you make me smile even when you are in a rut.

    Folding laundry, are you? I still remember the old pic you had as your banner. *smile* You are clever.

    Thanks for the DTs definition; I was wondering the same.;-)
