Where I am and how I am doing

I am home! It sure feels good to be here but I am limited as to what I can do. I haven't even been to the studio! I have gotten to visit Max and the goats a time or two when someone can go with me. I don't like being limited!

Yesterday was my first day home alone. Before going to work my husband told me not to go outside. Sigh. My husband and son have everything under control. I don't even have to go out on the deck to feed our cat. They have been wonderful.

I wasn't able to bring the sheep home that I bought the day before the surgery. That was disappointing. The petting zoo that I am getting her from think she is bred and want to keep the lamb. As disappointed as I was this is really a good thing. When she does come I will be able to walk better and can be there to introduce her to Max and the goats. I am so excited about having two fiber animals!

Last week I started out patient physical therapy. Five more weeks to go. They work me hard for about an hour. Yesterday I told them I thought I could go up and down stairs. They weren't so sure but they let me try it. I went up just fine but coming down was a bit hard. The more I did it the better I got! I am still not bending my knee as much as I would like but I will get there.

So this is where I am these days. Stuck in the house, limping around and not accomplishing much. I have decided I will get to some jobs that I have put off for a while like cleaning the linen closet. I just have to accomplish something!

Until next time,



  1. Sounds like a good time to go through drawers that have collected lots of items....or do you even have those at your house??? I have some if you get bored!!!

  2. You are doing great! Don't you have a loom over at the house? I am sure if you don't the men can take care of that!

  3. What fun. You will get there. There will be lots of weaving to do.

  4. I am so glad you are home and on the mend... just get some knitting done, some spinning, and yes, some drawer sorting! LOL Gaze out your windows at your animals and know they are thinking of you too.

  6. Glad to hear you're home. Just don't over do it.

  7. So glad you are doing great. Don't push it too much with things you need to do. They'll still be there to do. Can't wait to see a pic of your sheep. So is she staying at the zoo until she lambs?

  8. Thinking of you.......I know first hand about this surgery......
    hang in there.
