My husband has been a real trooper, doing the laundry, cooking, helping me change clothes since I couldn't even lift my left leg enough to get pajama pants on or off. One neighbor brought a wonderful taco soup and another (a quilter of course) brought me a block I could hand stitch. Today one of my daughters is bringing lunch and of course, my children have checked on me most every day. I must be getting better because I am now laughing at myself as I toddle through the house leaning on my cane and looking straight at the floor because to stand upright is too painful. I think of the fairy tales I read as a child, I don't remember which one, but there was a crooked little man? :)
After I take my meds there is usually a window of time where I can sit up and stitch a little...handwork is soothing to my soul so I'm thrilled to be able to do it. I've finished a couple of tea towels:
And the top for a pincushion is ready...except I see in this picture that his eye needs to be a bit darker:
And today I was able to sit up long enough to prep this wool pillow top:
I've read a couple of books and am wondering if anyone has some good ones to recommend - perhaps a good romance, light enough that I don't have to think because at this point my brain is on strike. I love the Robyn Carr books if that gives you an idea of what I'm looking for.
I'm also stuck on Level 70 of Candy Crush and have played that game for hours now since I can do it lying down. Any tricks to getting past this level?
And I've been so thankful for my blog friends who have had some wonderful posts I could enjoy - especially the Kona Blog Hop that's going on now. I'm looking forward to next weeks' posts...you might want to join me in visiting these for a little inspiration!
