How was your weekend? Mine was slow and steady. I'm the famous tortoise taking my time to win the race. I've sat around a lot and I must say I'm now comfortable enough to knit which is all that really matters if you're a knitter. I feel so calm when there are knitting needles in my hand.
Yesterday was a do-nothing day. We took a walk down the dirt road before lunchtime. In the afternoon, I worked on the red hat while my husband made his famous curry dinner. We were together doing our own things - one of the best facets of our marriage, being alone - together!
Today was more of the same. Another walk down the same dirt road and lots more resting my back and knitting or reading my books. Oh did I mention there were donuts? yup. Definitely donuts cure back pain...
Kathy B asked on Friday's post why I named my blog Pumpkin Sunrise.
Well....the story is a little twisty turvy. I knew I wanted to have a blog and I anguished over a name since blogger (the platform I chose and love) is used by so many people that it's a challenge to find a unique name that's not used.
I knew my blog would be about knitting, but also my personal reflections and a way to document my days. If you know me well, you know that I am up at 5 a.m. religiously. Hence the 'sunrise' portion of the blog name. I came up with 'pumpkin' because I love fall and I celebrate a birthday during the Autumn season. I also adore the color orange.
When I typed in pumpkin sunrise, it was available, shortly after I bought the domain name. That's the story of my name picking. I found it more challenging to name a blog than to name a child or puppy.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your well wishes and suggestions for my back. I had my first physical therapy appointment this past Friday and oh my goodness, I felt so good after the treatment. I'm scheduled for a month of therapy two times a week. Onward and upward!!
