It's cold. And gray. I'm wearing my Farmer's Market Cardigan and Pelagia noctiluca socks, but they aren't enough to keep me from wanting to be in my pajamas in my bed with chocolate chip cookies.

It is February. And I have hit the point where it's just "head down, keep walking" and believe that someday it will be sunny again. I'm not yet to the point where I believe that peonies are just a figment of my imagination, but I'm close.

I've begun writing down quotes in a little book I keep in my purse. Today I wrote this, which came from the little tear-off calendar I keep on my desk at work:

Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviors.
Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits.
Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny. 
 -Mahatma Gandhi 
It's an ambitious goal for February, but I'll try.

Stripy grays in my normal 3x1 ribbed pattern (mine ravelled here),
knit in the very sensible Patons Kroy Socks Ragg Shades in Blue Striped Ragg

This helps.
