Just popping in for a quick minute to show you what I was able to get with Sherri's wonderful donation for yarn for the mitten project.
Michaels has another sale going on this week so I was really able to score a hit. Thank you Sherri!
I also have completed three more pair of mittens since my last post. Yesterday was my annual physical and I finished one pair while waiting over 2 hours for my appointment! I hadn't expected to be there so long waiting to be seen, so I actually ran out of yarn. That almost never happens to me. When waiting somewhere I always knit or crochet. Oh well. Waiting for blood test results but everything else, (except my weight) looks good. My BP was only 106/62. That made me happy. :-)
I had my acupuncture appt. in the afternoon. She wasn't too happy with the state of my feet. They're full of knots and they ache terribly bad. I haven't been to see her since February so it's my own fault. She left the needles in for over an hour - almost 40 of them! My feet felt wonderful after that, but I'm going back tomorrow for another treatment. Then I think I should be able to just go once a month or so to keep the hot flashes and painful feet away. Goodness! A year ago you would never have told me I would be going to have acupuncture done. All those needles!!!! Ladies, I'm here to tell you that it works. I went to three conventional foot doctors who just wanted to move ALL of the bones in both of my feet. Finally, the last one suggested I try this before he operated. Now, I don't like needles much at all but it doesn't even hurt. I fall asleep almost every time and I'm the person who NEVER sleeps during the day, even when sick. It's so relaxing.
So, instead of going to the lake tomorrow morning I'll go in the afternoon. This has been an absolutely gorgeous week of temperatures in the 90's and blue, blue sky and I'm missing it all by being home! Poor me. HA!
Okay, I'm off to give Miss Chloe a bath. She is a lab that's afraid of water, so I always feel bad when I give her a bath. Her big brown eyes just melt my heart and she looks so sad and scared. But afterwards she runs around like a puppy and smells so good!
Have a wonderful day my friends.
