life with a chronic disease and a really big yarn stash
Rocking the Week #4
It is March in Colorado, which means we are in the midst of endless weather adventure. This last week we experienced a march of weather fronts that came through the state with wind, wind, and more wind. It was sunny but still miserable for cats and people.
I was pretty miserable myself. Usually my joints are OK, but this week all of my tendons took to hurting. Gee, there are a lot of tendons in a human body! Not only did my hands and wrists hurt, but so did my knees, hips, feet… well, pretty much if it moves, it hurt. I finally had to resort to pain killers and spent a lot of time in bed this week.
That’s right, it is now spring. We are in for weeks of chaotic weather, but the plants will be coming back to life, the birds will be arriving soon, and I can’t help but be happy. Today my hands feel fine, I’m going to heat up some soup for dinner using my new bowl holders, and then I have a beautiful shawl to knit.
It turns out that this was a pretty good week after all.
I weave, knit and read in Aurora, Colorado where my garden lives. I have 2 sons, a knitting daughter-in-law, a grandson and two exceptionally spoiled kittens. In 2014 I was diagnosed with a serious rare autoimmune disease called systemic sclerosis along with Sjogren's Disease and fibromyalgia.

Your cats are adorable, bless MacKensie for looking after you! I hope everything is ok. I need to take a leaf out of your book and sort out the kitchen cupboards. It’s the perfect time for a spot of spring cleaning after all! Your soup bowl holders are a great idea. And that shawl looks like it’s going to be a beauty!
MacKenzie is a good boy. This week he was a huge help while I sorted receipts in preparation for my tax return appointment next week. (Kitty grin!) He’s a lot of help while knitting (Big kitty grin: he basically shuts operations down!)
Thanks for all your lovely comments. Today it is sunny and I am knitting on the shawl. It is really going to look great I think.
I have a kitty ‘helper’ when knitting too. He sits on my pattern when he’s not getting enough attention! Have a good weekend knitting on your shawl 🙂
