I had two doctor appointments scheduled for today, and while I could have made it into work in time to teach my last two bells, I decided to give myself the afternoon off. For some reason, I have been feeling fragile this week; not sure if it's hormonal, seasonal, or just a whole lot of little stressors adding up to one big stress blob, but whatever the reason, it hasn't been a particularly easy week. So, I'm sitting in a coffee shop relaxing between appointments and enjoying the portability of my iPad. And my knitting, of course.
I've finished with my appointments and I'm now in another coffee shop doing some knitting and reading. I'm trying to come to terms with the diagnosis I received that the pain in my neck is arthritis, according to the x-ray. It shouldn't be a surprise really, since both my parents have it, but it wasn't what I was expecting. I have to have an MRI and go back to discuss the results within the month.
This is a close up of the Tulips sweater I'm making; can't decide which photo shows the truest color.
I've just divided for the sleeves, so it's moving along.
Decided to paint the kitchen tonight, or more accurately, I painted one wall in the kitchen. It's not the best idea to paint at night, but I couldn't wait any longer. The photo was taken with the iPad, and it's crappy lighting, but I think it may be exactly what I was envisioning. I'll know for certain tomorrow, when I can see it in natural light.
Hope your Friday was a fun one!
