Happy Wednesday! It's a cloudy day, but at least the rain has stopped for the time being. I just got home from the chiropractor again. I've been there every morning this week. I don't want to complain, but it has been a rough week. I even missed church on Sunday and I very rarely miss church. I have been in so much pain and it's moving around my back. He said that's normal when you start working on one area, another starts telling you that it has issues too. He even asked if I had ever broken my tailbone, (yes, three times!) That area hasn't hurt in years but it is now. So he's working on that too. It's hard not to get discouraged but I'm trying to remain hopeful.
Now onto happier things. Alicia celebrated her birthday on Saturday. She was the recipient of the Beachcomber shawl that I showed in my last post. She loved it and she wears shawls often so it was a good place for it to go.
Here is a photo of the sweet family that is staying with us. We bought a cake and had ice cream for Alicia's birthday. Alicia and I walked through the new house to inspect it yesterday and then they closed on the house at 8:30 this morning. The movers will pick up their stuff in Moses Lake, WA on Monday, deliver next Tuesday and they plan to stay at the new house that night. So we only have one more week with them. This house is going to be really quiet. Here is the sweet little family with the birthday cake.
Fun surprises arrived in the mail this week. I got this lovely package from the generous Debra who is "Araignee's Tangled Web" on my sidebar. She so generously sends out packages of her homemade soaps, lotion bars and lip balm, along with a sweet little card. I love the lotion bars and have received them before but this is the first time I have gotten lip balm. Oh. My. Goodness. I love it. I keep it right by my chair and use it often. It's wonderful! Thank you so much Debra. You are a sweetheart to all of us.
The socks are a pair of mine that I've been wearing for several months that I just put on the blockers to show you. I just wash them in the machine and sometimes they go in the dryer if I don't catch them to air dry them. Even so, they are holding up well. They are knit with Knit Picks Felici yarn and SO soft and comfortable.
Take care and I'll be back soon.
