DH and I are creatures of habit!  We like our days to progress in an orderly fashion, now that we are retired.

We had fun on our trip to Indiana.  It is the most disorganized trip we have ever taken - I guess we are not good at last minute changes anymore!  The biggest regret was forgetting all cameras!!!!  We did manage to visit the civil war era mill and get some buckwheat and whole wheat flour.  We bought some on a visit several years ago and the buckwheat pancakes are amazing.  I got enough to share with my son and his wife too.

DH picked up the guitar that he won on eBay.  He has wanted a Gretsch since he was 13, and now he has a beauty!

We had a great visit with our friends - neighbours in Florida in the winter time.  We saw many members of their family and toured the area.  Of course we ate too much food and laughed, sang songs, played games, rode around the property on his 4-wheeler.

On the way home we stopped at 2 quilt shops - both wonderful!  I'll report on them when I get pictures taken of the fabric I had to bring home.

Of course, my knee decided to act up again, and I'm back to travelling the stairs one at a time.   I called my doctor about the results of my MRI, and I'm waiting for a return call.  I've been going to a physiotherapist, and she called today, after seeing the results, so I know what it shows.  She thinks I'll be referred to an orthopedic specialist, but that will have to wait on my doctor.  We have great medical care, but I get impatient with the wait times.  I'd like to get my life back to normal - walking with no pain, being able to go up and down stairs and ride my bike etc.  I'm doing my stretches, exercises and heat and ice treatments every day, but the knee pain comes and goes.....

Now I'm done with the pity party, I think I better sew something!

  1. So sorry to hear about your painful knees. I feel mine every once in a while and pray that nothing gets worse. I guess getting older is not for sissies, right. Sounds like your vacation was lots of fun.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
