My hormones, which for most of my adult life have behaved reasonably well, got all out of whack due to a very stressful March and early April. It's amazing what can happen to the body when the hormones aren't happy. Also amazing are the side effects when a little supplemental therapy is required to reset the body clock. I do hope it resets properly, because the last five weeks have Not been Fun. (I'm almost ashamed to complain about this, when there are so many more serious things that could have gone wrong but didn't.)
There's been a lot of rainy and grey this spring, which is wonderful for the land if not for the spirits. On the other hand, when you're feeling exhausted and achy and nauseated and brain-fogged, and unmotivated to exercise even though you know you ought to, rain makes a wonderful excuse to stay indoors and loll on the sofa getting nothing much done.
Next week should be better. I hope. :)

From hormone blues we pass to yarny blues. Here's a peek at a new pattern:

It's lilac time here in Wisconsin.
Has anyone ever successfully described the scent of these glorious blossoms? Words like "heady" and "langorous" come to mind, but there's no way to do written justice to the sweet airs wafting across the countryside and through the open windows. And the colours! To someone whose favourite colour has been lavender from the age of 2 upwards, lilac time is a little bit of heaven.

I haven't forgotten that a second Spinnaker post is due. The post is mostly written, but I'm sorry to say it has disappeared into the Abyss of Lethargy that was once my active brain. I hope to find it soon and bring it to light.
Meanwhile, here's a glimpse of Spinnaker Too, with the alternate textured band:
(You can find the first Spinnaker post here.)

How are you? If I haven't visited lately, please don't take it amiss - just blame it on the hormones (or lack of). I hope to catch up with everyone soon.
