Winter has not let go of Eastern PA as yet. Cold, and extremely windy today. When I walked the dog I wore with my coat, a scarf, mittens, and hat. Thought I was done with those things for this time of year. Wasn't Spring started just this weekend? Oh well, such is life.

I have been working on the granddaughter's sweater. It's worked from sleeve to sleeve. Got the first sleeve the right length and next thing is to add the stitches for the front and back.

Been learning to life weights. I had gone to Curves for a year and a month, but then decided I wasn't getting in any better shape as the machines stayed the same. So now to move on to weight lifting. Found a gym today by looking in the telephone books and it's very close to here which is great. Need to call and make appointment to tour the place. I have been lifting dumb bells but that's not as safe as machines. I've been reading Power of 10 which is the slow lifting of weights.

Hope it warms up here in this neck of the woods soon.

So, I've been knitting.

Went to the Doctor on Friday afternoon to get the ear wax taken out of my right ear. Had to wait in the waiting room for an hour and a half. Good thing I took my knitting and got quite a few rows done while waiting on the baby sweater. Turns out I was next to the last to be taken into the examining room. And the last one to leave that afternoon at 6 PM. Only car in the parking lot. Well, one good thing was that I got a lot of knitting done. Sure was frustrating to see others being called in while I was still sitting there. So be it.

Think I will go get one of those Sourdough hard pretzels I bought a big thing of yesterday.

So, I knitted.

I am getting frustrated. Wrote this several times and can't seem to get it published.

Well, I am knitting again. Worked on the hat band quite a bit for the last week or so. Then last night I started a sweater for my granddaughter again. This time I'm knitting it in a size she will be in the fall, so it just may fit her when she needs it. They do live in Texas.

Went to the audiologist yesterday. My hearing is getting worse, but he things it might be wax, so I need to go to my doctor to get them washed out. Such fun. He says my loss is probably genetic.

We had snow yesterday morning, but it melted by noon. Nice thing about March.

So, I've been knitting.
