Autumn is finally here! As much as everyone dreads the arrival of Fall, I enjoy it! It’s the season right before everything is inundated with snowfall. Breezy again to wear … Continue reading Autumn Goals!
Today was a crazy day at work, and the constant afternoon thunderstorms did not make things any smoother. I’m very thankful that music and singing keeps my toddlers occupied. It didn’t keep them distracted the entire day, but it was a great way to pass the time.
I couldn’t attend the stitch and sips meeting after work, but this will give me plenty of time to begin new projects. Now that my left hand is on a positive mend, I can begin pushing myself to create yarn products once again.
- I tend to get easily distracted. I have books I would love to take on, and photos I would love to scrapbook, but when I get home I feel so exhausted. I end up watching YouTube videos, or baseball games.
- This coming Tuesday I’m going to the next Sip and Stitch workshop. I’m very much looking forward to attending, especially since the last one was so much fun.
- Only a week away for Andy and I to visit Wildwood. It will only be for a day, but it will fall around our engagement anniversary!
In a few hours I’ll be heading to a crochet meetup at a brewery. I wouldn’t think that such a gathering would take place at a brewery, but I’m happy that it is. Since moving to Hunterdon County two years ago, I haven’t been able to connect with many people who have similar interests to mine, so I’m looking forward to it. I’m trying not to set high expectations for tonight, in case it doesn’t work out. If anything, I can meet some new people and have a good drink.
Sunday mornings are usually a time for rest, having one more free day until the stress of the work week begins again. For me, some Sunday mornings bring worry, due to me overthinking issues in my life. I really need to stop doing that!
This morning brings some promise, since my left hand still feels good after crocheting yesterday. Of course the support brace I wear while working (and at night) certainly helps. I’m looking forward to crocheting again today. A few rows a day.
I’m glad that the 4th of July break is here. I’m only away from work for the holiday, yet the time off is necessary. The neighborhood fireworks celebration was taking place tonight, and we really enjoy them every year. After work Andy and I went for a quick bite, then we headed to Lone Eagle Brewing for a drink. It’s been a couple months since we last visited, and we managed to locate a table at the upper level for a short while. I got myself a dry Irish stout. The description of the beer mentioned coffee, and I’m always up for caffeine.
As we were leaving the brewery I came across a calendar of events held throughout the summer. One of events mentioned a ‘Stitch and Sip’ event: meeting others who drink, knit and crochet. I felt super excited when I came across the listing…it’s only a couple weeks away, and it’s exciting to meet fellow yarn crafters in the area. I only hope that left wrist is feeling up to creating again. It may just be a pure social event, without yarn crafts. It would be nice for my hand to feel much better though.
This is the last week of OT sessions. I was told that I could request more sessions, but there would be a lapse in therapy, due to wait time. I feel like my left hand has felt better than it was from when I began therapy. I’m a little nervous about therapy ended, but I can’t wait for my hand to get better. I really can’t wait to crochet again. My OT explained that my hand would still take a couple months to heal completely, and that I need to protect it. I would love so much for my left hand to finally feel better, so I can crochet again. I haven’t touched a crochet hook in almost 3 months. It will feel so blissful to create with yarn again.
