Neck!! I’ve already mentioned that Wednesday after the marathon knitting/entertaining the little girl session in the doctor’s office, I ended up with a crick in my neck. It is so rare that I feel bad or have an ache or pain and that makes me a terrible patient.
Thursday morning I woke up and immediately realized the pain in my neck was still there and, beings that I’m such a terrible patient, I was sure it was the worst crick ever! Working in the garden, tugging at water hoses, pulling weeds . . it was really hurting and by last night, I had decided that it must be a malignant tumor of some kind because nothing else could cause so much misery. That’s how I am when I’m sick . . I’m sure I’m going to die any minute.
While trying to sew last night, I kept ironing leftover strips of binding fabric and wrapping them around my neck while they were hot. It might’ve helped! We had a new carton of Blue Bell ice cream . . mango! I realized our neighbor was at her house by herself so I called to see if she wanted some ice cream. She did and offered to meet me halfway but I told her I’d bring it to her so she didn’t have to leave the house at dark by herself. There is a mountain lion out there, you know? Vince has cut a new path to their house and he was afraid I’d run over a cactus . . like he didn’t! So he drove me over there. We visited a while and that left us coming home well after dark and I’m sure we ended up with a few cactus needles in the RTV tires. Hey . . that’s why I took the RTV and not the car! Those cactus needles ruin lawn mower tires but I hope they don’t ruin RTV tires.
Anyway, even in my distress, I managed to get a little sewing done last night.
All the corner and side triangles are done. I might can finish the alternating blocks tonight . . I never get done as much as I think I’ll get done but there’s always hope.
Oh . . the good news! I woke up this morning and the crick in my neck was gone. Yay! I never realize how lucky I am to feel so good all the time til those few days I don’t feel so good so yesterday was a reminder that I’m very blessed in so many ways.
