Good morning Everyone!
A couple of weeks ago, a cousin of mine posted a picture on Facebook reminding all of us that there were (at that time) only 10 shopping weekends before Christmas. I could hear (and joined in) the collective groan that rose as those fatal words were read. Didn’t we just clear the Fourth of July or something?
On September 21, I posted about Mandy’s accident. I blinked, spun around once, and now over a month has gone by! Mandy has made an excellent recovery. All but one of her stitches came out yesterday, and her ear looks distinctively untorn, which was the whole goal of the surgery.
She handled wearing the cone for about two weeks with grace and panache. I know she prefered NOT to have it on, but she didn’t mope around when it was on. She did find that it cramped her scavenging style. Counters and kitchen floors were much harder to access. I got more than one puzzled look from her when she was in the kitchen trying to rescue a dropped piece of food from the floor and she couldn’t quite reach it with her collar on.
I found a new app for my phone the other day that lets me do a sort of crossword puzzle on it, which I have enjoyed, although I did take issue with the answer “crochet” for the clue “a knitting technique.” Tisn’t so, as any knitter or crocheter will tell you. Knitting is knitting, and crochet is crochet. Different tools, different techniques, different considerations. The only thing they share in common is that they both use yarn and patience.
And that’s about all for now!
Have a great day!
