The wind blows worse in Kansas where they plant windbreaks of poplar trees. In Texas the sand flies when the wind blows. I don't remember the wind blowing when we lived in Louisiana. I do remember the air being so still any clothes you hung on the line looked exactly the same when you brought them in as when you hung them out. Not even enough breeze to move clothes on the clotheslines.
This is the time of year when you become tired of all your clothes but it's too soon to break out spring clothes.
Plants are looking bad but it's too early to plant new ones.
By March I will have had all I can stand of cloudy rainy days but know there are many more to come. Hard to keep motivated.
So, I'm knitting some just because I find it soothing. I don't knit in the summer so I'd better do it now.
Some projects take a long time and teach me patience.
Some go much quicker and reward me with instant gratification.________________________
A chance to use your voice by joining AARP as they oppose repealing Obamacare. You might want to give this some thought.
There is news tonight of rumblings among Republicans about "repairing" Obamacare. That works for me. "Repair" was always the magic word. No one ever said it didn't need more work. If Republicans had "repaired" it before they voted 60 times to repeal it all this nonsense would not have happened.
This is one place where public outrage definitely makes a difference. Republicans have heard the public outcry and they are reluctant to have the repeal of Obamacare on their record. We need to send a message if they mess up Obamacare they own it. We have to keep calling the offices of elected officials and marching in the streets. It's the only voice we have. Republicans control all three branches of government.
Eyeing the House, Democrats move to hire operatives in 20 GOP-held districts. An article you should find interesting.
Liberals are the new Tea Party. There seems to be new activity in a lot of places.
