What I have been up to

I thought I had better take a moment and let you know what I have been up to. Life has been very busy around here. I am trying to get my life in order before Tuesday. On Tuesday I will be having a knee replacement of last year replaced. I am so NOT looking forward to this! But if I have to do this it is a good time of year to have it done. The fort that I volunteer at will be closing for the winter after the candle light tours on Saturday. and I don't have any shows to get ready for any time soon.

I don't know how soon I will be back up on my feet. At the hospital they get you up and moving the day after surgery. This knee has been bad since I was a child so I don't know how soon I will be back to normal. Hmmmm, after thinking about what I just said  I don't want normal. I want better than that!

I also don't know if I will be able to walk over to the studio. So in order to keep weaving I have moved my Dorothy loom with a stand over to the house. I want to weave a run of scarves. Guess I had better get busy and wind that warp!

When I went to out patient physical therapy last year they asked me what my goals were. After pondering a moment I told them I wanted to weave, take care of my goats and run from the Indians! You should have seen their faces! LOL. At the fort we sometimes have the women running when the Indians attack. I still can't do that but who knows. Maybe with this new knee I will be able to. I think I will add one more thing to my goal list. I want to ride horses again.

Well, that is all I have for today. My days are pretty full until the surgery but I will try to blog as soon as I can.



  1. I'm sending LOTS of positive thoughts for your surgery. I want to see you running from the Indians, too!!!!

  2. My prayer is you will be able to attain all your goals! Keep in touch

  3. First surgery. Then running. I will send out a prayer for your speedy recovery.

  4. Hi Linda,
    I pray everything will go perfectly for you today.
    Prayers are strong and I know there are many who are praying.
    I live with chronic pain (hopefully mine will be taken care of tomorrow - Wednesday) so I do know what you are going through.
