So today I made a decision. I went to my bloated blog reader and made a new folder called 'Daily Reads'. Into this folder I moved a selected number of blogs and I'm determined to put an effort towards trying to read at least those every day. This doesnt mean I will stop reading the others, just trying to take some of the pressure off myself. I so enjoy reading everybody's blogs and find them all so interesting but time after time I look at my reader and see 1000+ posts to read and become overwhelmed. I find myself skimming through them to try to reduce the number. Even skipping whole posts or more likely just not reading any that day as it seems a chore. I dont want this to happen! I started reading them for a reason. I love all of you! You have opened up a whole new world to me and given me so much insight and inspiration. So now maybe I can enter that page with a little less guilt. Settle down with my coffee and spend some time with my friends. The people who's blogs I will read daily are the ones who I feel a personal connection with. People who I have talked with, shared ideas, etc. I have been shorting myself by not spending time with them each day. So that's a big load off my mind as it's been bothering me for awhile and I really felt like I was missing out!
Today I woke up to find myself with a little more mobility. The muscle running down from my neck along my spine on the left side was still quite swollen last night and this seems where the greatest problem lies. I cannot turn my head too far to either side. My hip is also affected and of course my poor bruised knee!It's amazing how you can be walking along just having the best of times and then WHAM! everything changes in a heartbeat. I am grateful though that I didn't break any bones and that my recovery does seem on it's way! Here's to being well enough on Sunday for the trip my honey promised me. We are supposed to go visit the village up above us in the mountains. Take a train up there and spend the day. Sounds exciting!
I have all my dyes mixed now. It took a few days since I really couldn't move much but I was so excited when I received them that I wanted to mix them right away! I have a pile of floss tied and ready to dye. I tied them all when I was sitting in my old apartment with it all packed up waiting to move. I'm so glad that part is out of the way as I dont think my arms would cooperate with that process right now LOL! So I think I might try my hand at a little dyeing today. I dont think it will be too much for me. If so, I will stop and wait till tomorrow!
If all goes well I will have some pretty colors to show you soon. Hope you are all having a good week!
