Last week was one of those weeks where I could hardly catch my breath. Most of you know that I really don't leave this place much. I prefer to stay at home. There really is so much to do around here but I found myself "off the hill" as we say three out of five days last week. That's a lot of time driving people, a lot of time! Stick with me and see what I mean.
Monday: Time for my yearly wellness check-up. I'm six months behind on this so no more putting it off. 1 1/2 hours in the car to get to the doctors office. Wait not too long for my scheduled appointment. Good news on my lab results and general health (Yippee) but let's get an x-ray of that gimpy knee that's been giving me fits for the last eight months. Off the the x-ray lab, wait some more, back to the Dr., wait some more. No earthly idea why knee hurts, oh well. Better see a specialist tomorrow. 1 1/2 hours in car to go home, day gone complete exhaustion.
Tuesday: 1 1/2 hours in car back to doctor office for more knee consultation. No arthritis in knee (Good) soft tissue damage likely (Bad). Lots of new rehab exercises to follow. 1 1/2 hours in car back home, day gone complete exhaustion.
Wednesday: Bright spot in week. My Needle Nellies quilt group meeting. Lovely to see everyone and have a gab fest. I forgot my camera and so no pictures of works in progress. We drew names for our 2015 Christmas gift exchange, we have to have plenty of time to think about what to make don't you know. Also planning a lot of fun activities for the coming year. A Crocker Museum trip is in the works, remember this one?
Thursday: Beauty Day! That's in capital letters because it really is a big deal. I get my hair did every five weeks and it takes hours, that's hours I tell ya! I haven't decided to throw in the towel and go grey so there's all the color and highlight nonsense and cut and general tomfoolery. Let's face it, no amount of time is going to turn me into a beauty but I do allow an entire day for the process. I live in hope.
Friday: Finished up planting the raspberries and blackberries. The bare root plants we ordered from Peaceful Valley arrived mid week and Friday we got those in the ground as well as set up the drip irrigation for the rows.

|All in all a good day's work!|
Sunday: Well, you all know what happened on Sunday. Will Lady Edith kidnap her own baby and run away to lord knows where? What about Bates, is he going back to the slammer? Speaking of Sunday. My new Sunday evening obsession is the Great British Baking Show on PBS. If you haven't seen this show what are you watching instead? Really?
