Finally back and WIPW!
My first post in a very long time - Yay - I've finally been able to knit a little bit and had to share. So much has been going on... so you know I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis. I've been in a lot of pain and haven't been able to do many things. The Doctors aren't sure how else to help me so we thought maybe it's time for some meds... Well, I tried to take Cymbalta and had HORRIBLE side effects from it. It was awful! Needless to say, I am now a bit gun shy of meds so I am currently in Physical Therapy and doing well with it - graduated from water to land - awesome!!! It also seems like I'm feeling better with it being warmer out too so that has been a good thing. I don't fully understand this whole Fibro thing and can't seem to get a handle on it - some days I'm fine and other days I can't move. Lately I have been having more of the feeling fine days so, I've been trying to knit at least one row each Tuesday night with my group and here is my progress:
It's another scarf of course, but my hands can't take using tiny needles yet so I thought another length wise scarf would be a good start. Usually I whip these up in a few hours but this is taking weeks/months since I can only do a bit at a time... typing is still hard too - my hands are cramping a bit now.
So, I did want to share some pics of my animals at camp so I'm going to do that - we have 5 goats, 2 sheep, an alpaca, a pig, a bunny and an alligator. Here they are:
Yes, my goat has a beard and the piggy's name is Mrs. Kravitz!! Quite funny!
Next, we had a visit from some Turkey Vultures - here they are - very exciting (and ugly, sorry...)
Now for some pretty pics of our cute butterflies and absolutely adorable baby chicks that just hatched on Monday and Tuesday:
And to end it all, since today is MY BIRTHDAY - WOO HOO- I'd like to share a pretty rainbow that was on my floor.
For more WIP's please visit Tami over at her blog and have a Happy Wednesday - may my birthday bring you all a great day of happiness and health!!!
