Thursday

I didn't do much with my left arm/wrist after 2PM yesterday, except the two posts last night and eating dinner. And drinking a cup of chai before bedtime. It woke up fine this morning, but after 30 min of checking emails and Facebook and paying a bill online, it's not good.  So no weaving today.  Again.  I had my mind set on weaving half of Tim's scarf yesterday, and finishing it today, and I'm at a loss as to what I'm going to do now.  And I might have to change my plans for how far I'll take P2P2.  Or can I make a small warp to dye in walnut shell solution? 

It's amazing how many muscles we use in doing the most mundane chores.  I can feel it when I have my brace on.  I feel frustrated with my enforced slow day, but I have to take it easy if I want to weave well into my 90's.

You all take loving care of yourselves and your bodies, please, because minds/spirits alone can't do much weaving, I'm telling you.

Happy anniversary to Dot and me; we have been communicating more or less daily for two years now, and it has been the best therapy.  And quietly, on the side, she published a magazine for a year as well.  Happy Birthday, YarnMaker Magazine.

  1. Take care of those wrists, Meg. It's hell when they start to go and you have to begin letting go of activities...

  2. Thanks, Connie. I've been little naughty in doing stuff, but still wearing that thingie that holds it in place for most of the... afternoon.

  3. I've learned, and had to re-learn several times, that taking time out when the body first starts to hurt is much more efficient and effective than pushing through. It's too late for that now, but I do suggest a good rest for that arm/wrist.

    Love the scarf!

  4. Yes, Peg, I know. But but but... I haven't woven since Thursday, which has been so trying, especially on Friday, but during the weekend I concentrated on the garden, working mostly with just the right hand.
