I am here, but not feeling much like writing these days.
We have been getting the camper ready for the season, raking the grass, ītidying up.
I have been swimming and have increased my sessions to an hour which is lovely.
I think the cold/flu I had for six weeks is finally gone. (fingers crossed)
I went back on my full dose of meds after about four days - I am ok, the timing just wasn't right.
I went to the doctor and had all my blood work done and all is well.
I finally got in to the eye specialist and I need laser surgery to correct the haziness that has developed since I had cataract surgery five years ago. Early June is the date - so there is that.
I haven't felt much like reading blogs either. Except Rubber Shoes in Hell. I always read what Michelle has to say because I feel some connection to her that goes deep. She makes me laugh and cry, often at the same time.
I have been knitting, and also un-knitting. I ripped out eighteen rows of lace this morning because I noticed a mistake, and tried to fix it (major fail), and so resigned myself to removing a whole section. It was easier than I thought, and only lost one night's worth of knitting and now I am back on track.
The little ball is the amount I ripped out and have to reknit.
I tried to ignore the mistake. I tried to convince myself that once blocked no-one would notice it.
But I would know it was there and the wise words "no-one ever regrets tinking back to fix a mistake, but always regret not" circled around in my brain.
I finished a baby jacket (for no baby in particular), good old Elizabeth Zimmerman's Surprise Baby Jacket.
and have almost finished knitting Little Cotton Rabbits - Bunny Girl in the dotty dress. (that's the name of the pattern).
My sock yarn blanket is past 600 squares so there is progress on that front too.
I am ok.
Just wanted you all to know that.
Just wanted to tell myself too.
Besides I have this little tin of mints that a friend gave me. I carry it with me always (and the mints are good too)
