A boy and his pepper toy
Then I walked up to the library to return one book (and left with two), then went on to the farmers' market which was fine, but frustrating since I can't really carry anything I wanted to buy. But it was nice to walk around, see the goodies, pet some dogs, and come home.
A friend of ours is coming over in a few hours for a visit, so it will be nice to catch up with her. Also, she is a night owl, so it's kinda nice she will be here earlier, so it won't be so late when she leaves. Usually, she comes for dinner, and by the time she heads home, we're nearly comatose!
I have my next appt with the orthopedic surgeon on Monday. There will be more x-rays, and then I'll either get a replacement of the same cast I have for a few more weeks, or get a portable cast that will come off so I can shower properly, and start some physical therapy. It's still painful and annoying, but I know it will be for a long time, so I'm trying to not think about it too much!
I really miss getting to knit, or stitch, or do much of anything. I've been watching lots of knitting podcasts, which are at least like getting to hang out with some knitters. It's a good thing I hadn't counted on knitting a lot of gifts this year, that's all I have to say.
I also missed getting out our Halloween decorations - for the first time ever, we didn't even have a pumpkin! It never occurs to The Tim to get one, and I didn't want to press my luck with him by asking him to get one ... hopefully, I'll get a good report at the dr's and will be able to do more for Thanksgiving. I just love having some things around to note the holiday. The Tim likes them, but except for Christmastime, it never occurs to him to get them out for any other times.
I am able to type a bit more easily, but it's still slow and arduous. I had hoped to do NaBloPoMo again this year, because I enjoy the challenge, but since it takes so long to type a post, I knew it was not a good idea. Unfortunately, it means I am also not likely to do much responding to comments any time soon, and I apologize for that. I am so happy that people are still reading and commenting, and I hope soon to be able to respond again regularly as well as regularly comment on others' blogs. Slow and steady wins the race, I know.
And that's it for now. I hope your weekend is lovely as well, with nice weather and good things to do. Enjoy!
