Still No Knitting or Crocheting!!

Here it is--April 25th--over two months since my elbow first started acting up--and I still cannot knit or crochet!!

I'm to see yet another doctor for evaluation for physical therapy, but not until May 11th!! By the time I'm able to start Lydia's sweater, she'll be ready for preschool!!

But, I have found that I can do counted cross stitch without too much trauma to the arm. So, I'm working on Lydia's CHRISTmas stocking. I don't have too much accomplished yet, but at least it will be finished in time. I'll post some pictures as I go along (once there is something to see!).

It is Sunday--it is raining--and there is much to be done in the way of outside work. I don't know that my elbow will stand up to this either, so I'll be enlisting the help of my son....when I can count on him to be here.

One evening last week, Andrew went outside to mow the lawn. He came in and asked me if I had seen the lawn mower. Apparently someone stole our lawn mover...

Why? I don't was old, was eaten with rust in some areas....but it still worked!! Off he went to purchase a new lawn mower, so at least the grass is cut!

Cara's dog, Nika, spent the night here on Friday evening. She apparently doesn't sleep well when she is at up all night going from bedroom to bedroom and checking on all that live there. With me, she just curls up in my bed and sleeps for the entire night. She went home yesterday, and I already miss her.

I was contemplating getting a dog...not a big dog...perhaps, medium-sized. Andrew wants nothing to do with having another dog, and he has stated an emphatic "no" to my idea.

We'll see....we'll see....

That's all for now, and have a wonderful Sunday!!
