Another day of knitting


Hello everyone. Here is how things are on a typical day. I have enjoyed my knitting time very much and haven't missed the cold, cold weather at all! I've had the cast on for 10 weeks and perhaps there will be 4 more weeks before it's off.
I also haven't missed travelling or shopping. Another day at home in the chair means more knitting, more spinning, reading, movies, surfing the net, etc. There's no time for boredom!
Of course I am able to enjoy this time mainly because my dear animals are being taken care of so well. And I have had wonderful care too. Farmer Bob is a very good cook and I have enjoyed all the lovely meals he has prepared.
Thank you readers for all you kind wishes!

Hello Val! You do look cosey in your red jammies with your knitting by your side :)

I like your outlook on life - even with a cast on you make it work - spinning, knitting etc.
Way to go, Val.

Val, you have such a positive attitude after your bad accident. You seem to be healing so well and are so patient. You are one amazing cousin, and I wish you the very best! Hugs from Diane

After 10 weeks that has to be a very favourite place to knit! I hope the next several weeks go fast for your recovery. There needs to be a party in the works for you when you get that cast off! Take care ;)

Thanks for comments. I'd never thought of a party Charlene. So, after thinking on it I've decided my idea of celebration is to go for a walk with the sheep (dog and favourite cat by my side) out to the pasture, on a sunny day and and smell spring in the air!

you sure are keeping busy even with the cast... good thing you'll get it off before Spring, when you can go out and enjoy some warm weather.

Happy Knitting!

Hi Val. It's good to hear you're surviving this winter....it is terribly icy here, and of course the rain last night didn't help! It's a good winter to be housebound
you look comfy and cosy. A walk in the spring looking for crocus sounds like a good tonic. Glad to hear you are keeping well, enjoy seeing the pics of the girls modeling for you. Will try to get up to see you (I keep promising don't I)

Hi Val! ...you do look absolutely radiant, cast and all!! Must be all that TLC & home cookin' from Farmer Bob! I have to admit, I'm a little envious...not of your broken leg of course, but of being able to relax and just 'do what you wanna do'...being out on the lone prairie, without the hustle & bustle of urban life sounds so nice! Although I do know farm life comes with it's trials & tribulations... I think back to when this would have been lambing season for me and how stressful that was! Wishing the next four weeks go by quickly and you get to enjoy that treasured walk with your favourite sheep..and cat ;)

Continue to heal well, Val! When spring comes you will be so anxious to get outside - lol! Hurray for Farmer Bob - he sure sounds like a keeper ;D
