Pleased to Meat You

I hope you enjoy the occasional interlude of meat and potatoes and yard work  and kitten related posts amidst all the yarn and crafts and other pretties.   They come to you via my co-author, photographer, technical-support husband.

And since so many of you have asked, we are attempting to set up an online shop where you can see my newest handmades and vintage items for sale.  So check back often and look for the link.

Meanwhile, read on.  And have a lovely weekend!

Good News from the Doctor

A month has passed since my unfortunate twirling accident and doc says my arm has healed nicely, just as she’d hoped it would.  That’s a relief because after falling a week ago on a terribly icy morning after taking our daughter to school, it was swollen and sore.  So afraid the doctor would say I’d need a cast after all just to make sure it would heal.  But alas I’ve been cleared to use it within reason.  I won’t be doing pushups any time soon.  And though I’m a lefty, I do nearly everything else with my right arm.  It sure is nice to do some of the things that just feel better done with a certain arm like opening doors, turning a key, shifting the car into gear, pouring my coffee.  It should take a couple more months before it feels completely normal and before I will be able to straighten it.    I do have goals though that would be reasonable to acheive gradually, like getting back to pilates class, and rock climbing and I would love to try a zip-line.

And guess what, it’s snowing today.  Think I’ll rest it a bit longer.
