Trying to take it easy!

 Yesterday I sat down and tied a rug. 

It's exciting to finish :)  and I really wanted to work on another, but I restrained myself.

I'm glad I did, as I ended up having to ice my hand and wrist - after just one rug!

This recovery period is the pits.  

I don't seem to know what to do with myself.  

I'm bored, frustrated and maybe even a little blue.  

I guess that's probably normal, but knowing that doesn't make it easier!

I have made a list of things I can do, and should do, but it's hard to get started. 

I wish I had someone here to hang out with...

I'm really glad that my parents 'kidnapped' me a couple days after my surgery.

They loaded me in their car and headed off to see my brother and his family
in Canada.  Two days travel covering 1000 miles as you are recuperating is not exactly fun, 
but it's not like I would have been doing anything else!

He has quite the view from his deck! 
 He is living on a place that is MY ultimate dream....  
The place was built for horses - but he has cows!  I could handle either I guess LOL.

Too bad he's that far away.

We took it easy coming home and broke the drive into three sections, stopping in Minot, ND to attend Hostfest,  (  a Scandinavian festival. 
Lots of fun and I had a nice time visiting with some extraordinary weavers.

Since I've been home, the Cooper dog and Polly cat are keeping very close!  
They must have thought i was never returning :) 

All for now,  JULIE
