Relaxing and Resting
Can you see three deer? One of them is awfully shy, the other two? They are brazen, they stand and stare me down and scoff at Frodo who desperately wants to catch one of them. They think he is ridiculous, and I think he is a positive dog who seeing the glass half full. A great way to think.
Yesterday, I heard him barking out in the backyard and just knew there was a garter snake refusing to move. Again, it's a stand off, so I call Frodo back inside to give the snake some peace and time to hide. Fifteen minutes usually does the trick.
This past week was kind of crazy on the health front. My theory is a simple one, my one medication for inflammation was changed (I requested it...) and that just set me up for my body going bonkers with an RA flare up.
On Wednesday morning, I called my RA doctor who called me back within the hour. I am now on a course of prednisone and back on the old tried and true anti-inflammatory drug I do well on. What a crazy week though. I was unable to grasp or lift anything (like a book!) without some kind of pain.
I am now mostly pain free and quite happy on my drugs. I know this is transitory so I've been relaxing and resting and reading and yes, I am knitting in spurts and bits. I know some of you are on Instagram and I thank you for your kind words and thoughts.
I did settle on the PERFECT Avenue Travel tote bag which I ordered last week and it arrived this week. I searched everywhere local in brick and mortar stores and nothing met my expectations. This bag is a great size and has plenty of pockets for an organizational freak like myself.
Oh, and for those of you who want to know what the PERFECT knitting tote bag is, well I love my Vera Bradley Vera Tote. I mainly love how lightweight the bag is so I can stuff as much knitting into it.
So there you go, I've enabled you immensely :)
Today I hope to be winding up some yarn (waiting for my wrist and hand to cooperate!) and starting some new projects over the weekend. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!
