Before I start sharing, let me show you this. I found this little candle with its own sweater. I was looking at it when a store manager was working on a display. She commented as I was thinking--"cuffs could be used instead of knitting." There is even a seam where this was sewn together. So, it was not knit just to size and for this purpose only. Knitters could whip this up in a short time. As for me, I will just have to look at naked candles.
The plumber was supposed to call me before he got here to turn on the water for a few hours. However, when he called I was dead to the world. The cell phone was one foot from my head and turned on. I awoke 3 hours later, called the plumber to apologize. He told me he turned on the water, a job done at the street. Thank you! Since he passes three blocks from my house, this is not too big an imposition for him, but a great favor to me.
In the last three hours, I have yet to wake up and feel okay. So, only one load of clothes is done and still to be hung up to dry.
I need to empty the dishwasher, reload it, and wash items in the sink. But, there is no energy after two weeks of struggle without water. The mental part is as stressful as the physical part.
Really, I need a Coke with sugar and caffeine to make it back to the land of the living. Since there is no Coke in the house, a few chocolate chips may work. We will see. I need to get up now and shuffle clothes and start more, hang them out, empty the dishwasher, and reload it, plus washing the crockpot again.

Have you ever had circumstances wear you down to the bone? Cause you to keep getting ill or cannot recover from an illness? Can you knit these little candle sweaters? Do you have cuffs or a sweater you can use as a substitute? You must know--I AM in a Christmas kind of mood underneath the weariness.
