... in my future.
On our last day in Hilton Head, while out on our morning walk, I did something (I have no clue what!) to injure my foot. The rest of that day and all day long on our trip home, it hurt like CRAZY to put any weight at all on the ball of my foot when flexed, so the only way I could walk without excruciating pain was to walk flat footed. By Monday the pain was reduced, so I thought I was on my way to healing. But it seems that I've hit a plateau in the healing process ... I can walk normally but I still have pain ... nothing even close to the level of pain I felt the first two days, but there's still some pain. And there's some low-level pain in the ankle (perhaps from the slight limp I've got?). I suspect that I've been overdoing and am going to give my foot some more rest the next several days to see if that doesn't jump-start the healing process. If not, I guess it'll be time to visit the doctor.
In the meantime, rest is the order of the day ... and of course, I can't complain too much because that will give me the opportunity to get in plenty of hand stitching, which as most of you know, is my favorite part of quilting. Time to put my Kiss quilt back in the hoop and get back in the hand quilting groove! I'm linking up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching.
I didn't get a lot of hand stitching done the last couple of days because we've been so busy here at Chez Nana, but I did get several more Bow Tie pieces basted and put together a few more Bow Ties.
I didn't get a chance to share some pictures from our garden ... I took these on a rare sunny day last week (Wednesday?).
When we got home from Hilton Head, I noticed, as I looked out the kitchen window, that there was a nest in our dogwood. Turns out it's a robin's nest ... I know this because I disturbed poor Mama Robin when I went out to take this photo. :-(
While those weather systems from Texas were weakened considerably by the time they got here to Illinois, we still got plenty of rain. Thankfully it looks like we're going to have a rain-free spell for the next week or so. Although that that front brought through some much, much cooler weather. The high today is only going to be in the mid 60s. Brrrrrr It'll feel good to be under that quilt this afternoon. ;-)
After church today, we'll be joining DD and her family for lunch to celebrate T#2's 11th birthday. And speaking of T#2, she got some good news on Thursday ... when she goes back on the 11th, she'll have her current cast removed and will get instead a waterproof cast ... and she's been given the ok to resume swimming! Woo hoo! Just in time for the 2nd team meet that evening!
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something
that brings you joy ... have a great day!
