I feel a
wine whine coming on… LOL
I won’t really whine much - I am a bit frustrated with about everything these days. My knee, the weather, quilting…
Let’s start with my knee… it’s doing about what I expected – which is not much. I had PT twice a week for 4 weeks and just began my 3 visits a week. I am putting weight on it and using it to walk although I’m still using the walker until I build up my overall strength more. I have recently started to work on bending it – going from 40 degrees the first time they measured to 60 degrees yesterday. Not at all what I need or want in a knee… I
think know the rest of it is going to be a lot of hard painful work.
My overall strength is getting better – especially once I started weight bearing on that leg. I no longer wear myself out just getting my shower…and I’m not exhausted when I get to PT.
I have been spending a little more time downstairs recently – but still have to haul myself up the stairs for the ladies room. I’ll be happy when I can walk up the stairs. But for now I’ll go up and down on my hiney a few times and then call it quits and stay up in my room.
I miss the sunshine when it’s hiding… and it’s been hiding around here a lot recently. It was such a pleasure to raise the blinds to the sunshine this morning! Now that I’m walking easier and further I can venture out on the driveway with the kids and enjoy some fresh air – which we did this morning. There is so much I’d like to be doing in my garden – I look forward to getting out there and getting stuff done. It’s mid April already – let’s get the warmth going on a more regular basis!
Quilting… well there isn’t much to say on that subject. I haven’t done a thing – nothing… nadda! I haven’t even gotten up to my studio to work on the calendar quilts I need to work on. I brought the stuff home a couple weeks ago – but just have not been able to get up there to work on them. I hope this weekend will be different.
My daughter and grandkids will be here just a few more weeks. I am so very grateful of the time and energy she has given me these past 2 months. I know it’s not the vacation she had planned – it’s not what I would have planned either. There are lots of things I wanted to do with them while they were here… but those adventures will have to wait until next time. I do hate that she’s had to work so hard… she pregnant and due late July – so it’s been a lot of work taking care of the kids and her Mom and Dad. I really don’t know what I would have done without her here.
Just a quick note: because I have recently had some S P A M comments show up on older posts I changed the settings so that Anonymous comments aren’t accepted and (if I remember right) you may get a note that the comment is awaiting ‘Moderation’. I’ll reset things after a while… I wish those nitwits would find something better to do with their time.
But after all that frustrating stuff… this is the kind of thing that keeps me sane. I know it’s a long video… but the boy was just too funny.
