Happy Monday to you all! I have to tell you that I’m really, really happy to be here. I had my appendix removed on Wednesday and was completely unprepared for the whole situation. No backup plan for orders and dyeing, no real plan for dealing with the cats’ feeding schedule and litter boxes, not even a will or living will. Yep, I fell short on this one, that’s for sure.
Luckily, everything went smoothly and I was able to come home the following evening. My kids had taken care of the cats, of course, and there was no need to worry about possessions and bank accounts and all that other jazz. But it was a little bit of a wake-up call for me. I’m still sorting out my feelings and thoughts over it all and will likely be doing so for a couple weeks.
For now, I want you all to know that I’m resting and relaxing the best that I can, I’m taking short walks throughout the day, and I’m eating very well. And napping! Oh, how I am napping! Things should be back to normal before long and I’ll be able to get back in the studio with all the pretty dyes and yarns and there will be a flurry of mailing packages shortly after that.
Today, however, I will be taking my second nap soon, then knitting on something simple enough that I don’t have to keep track of front & back. Garter stitch washcloths are my go-to projects until I can stop taking pain medicines.
I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend!
