" Monday Monday... can't trust that day. "
Does anyone remember that song by The MaMa's and PaPa's ?
I always loved that song even though I actually like Monday's.
Everyone leaves, which is a bit sad but I usually throw myself into housework and we all know how much I love housework. I do really. I'm not being sarcastic here. There are some of us who just enjoy it.
I have been mostly sitting per my doctors orders. Although I did do quite a bit yesterday. I made a pot of beef, vegetable and pasta soup. Also washed some lettuce for a salad. I'm still pretty tired most of the day which I was warned about but for the most part, I'm feeling much better.
According to our local weatherman, it's supposed to be sixty degrees today. Weird but nice. Our winter has been very mild so far this year and that's just fine with me.
I have another follow up visit with my surgeon tomorrow and I am hoping for an o.k. to do more. Maybe start riding my bike again. I'd also like to clean the inside of my car since it's supposed to be so mild this week.
I will be going to church today. There are some things that need to be done in the office. I'll have to go back again later in the week but that's fine. It's a good excuse to get out.
I made my Daughter-in-Law a pair of fingerless gloves last week in a soft gray yarn. They fit her tiny hands perfectly. Two of her friends saw them and want a pair as well. I whipped up a black pair for one of her friends over the weekend. I'm charging $ 15.00 a pair. I've seen similar pairs online selling for up to $ 45.00 so I think $15.00 is a bargain. I took a photo of one of the gloves below. I could only get one hand as I needed the other for the camera!!
Now I know what your thinking. I should sell them online. It's a great idea but I wouldn't be able to keep up with orders due to Carpel Tunnel and Arthritis in my hands. I can only do so much and then I have to quit for a few days. Katie's friend came over last week and said there are boys at school that want them too. I told her that I'd need to be paid up front for their orders.
So I doubt that will happen!! But it has given me something to do while sitting here. I want to make a pair for my daughter Ginny next. I know that she would love them.
My lamp that I use to crochet has bit the dust. So I will use the profit to buy a new one. I have borrowed Kate's lamp for the time being. Working with black yarn is especially hard on the eyes!
I've been wanting to post all weekend but really haven't had much to post about. Just trying to heal so that I can get back to my life again.
I hope that everyone had a good weekend and a good Monday!!
