The reason I'm home and not at the lake? It's something that would only happen to me. I am the most clumsy person I've ever known. I hit my head at Home Depot on Saturday. Not a huge hit, just a big enough bump that I saw pretty stars. We had a missionary family staying with us Saturday night so I took some Advil and persevered with making dinner and breakfast for them. However, instead of going to church Sunday morning, I drove myself to the emergency room and found out I had given myself a concussion. I have had a horrendous headache ever since. I just wish it would go away. This would have been a nice few days to be playing in the water at the lake and I'm sitting in my recliner instead doing this...
I've been watching lots of knitting podcasts. This one is "Wet Coast Knitters" from Vancouver, BC. But I've been catching up on all of my favorites. There are three I try to catch whenever they post something new, "Legacy Knitz" which is a mother/daughter podcast that is my absolute favorite. "Periscoping Sisters", which are two sisters, one in California and I think the other is in Georgia. Also "The Grocery Girls, two sisters from Canada. Their family owns a grocery store, hence the name. They are all wonderful knitters and are hilarious to watch. There are lots more though that I like to watch when I have time. Much better than television in my opinion.
Dennis filled my prescription for hydrocodone last night. I didn't want to take it, but the headache finally got to me. Whoa! One pill at bedtime last night and I don't think I'll be taking anymore. I do not like how I felt at all. I think I'll stick with Advil. Seriously, I don't know anyone who does the stupid things I do. But we didn't think I should be all the way out at the lake by myself right now so here I am trying to make the best of things.
One of the things that I was doing at Home Depot at the time of my unfortunate accident was purchasing marigolds for the garden bed that previously held green beans. Here they are all planted. Would you believe I went outside yesterday and one of the pretty little flowers you see here had the flower cut off just below the flower and it was laying in the grass. What in the world? Today all seemed fine. I can't figure out what is happening in this bed this year. If whatever it is kills these flowers, the bed will remain empty...or maybe I'll stick some plastic flowers in here. Ha!
I decided I needed something to work on that took absolute no brain power this week because apparently I have managed to bruise my poor brain and it's not processing things very well. So I found some half balls of yarn in my stash and a full one pound skein of cream from Loops and Threads. I started this granny stripe blanket from Lucy at Attic 24 and started a baby blanket for charity.
A close up. It looks like gumdrops to me.
Chloe isn't too impressed. She's missing running at the lake and playing with Mattie.
Okay. This was just a quick check in so you all know I'm here. Take care and I am trying to keep up with all of your blogs. I hope you're all enjoying the first days of summer.
