Another reason I haven't made it in to sewing room is that I'm still on a puzzle kick.
We have another one that a dear bloggy friend sent me ... time to get started on it. It looks to be a little. Ore of a challenge, so it's liable to take a while before we get it finished ... but we're up for,the challenge! Bring it on!
Since its been so nice, I've been outside as much as I can. I have been getting in a couple of walks every day ... I don't have the stamina to walk as far or as fast as I used to, but "they" say that several shorter walks will provide the same benefit that a longer walk does. I hope so.
I also spend some talking walking through the yard, enjoying the signs of spring. Our knockout roses have started blooming ... I'm trying to remember (and failing) if they bloomed this early in previous springs. "They" recommend trimming knockout roses (waaaay back, too) in late winter. In years past, I alway got out with my loppers and trimmed in February or March. Obviously that didn't happen this year. But it doesn't seem to be a problem, as they've greened up nicely and are now blooming.
Last Tuesday, I resumed my chemo. My oncologist assured me that I'd tolerate it well, other than a little more fatigue. I was very fatigued on Wednesday, but I suspect that was as much from the sleepless night Tuesday (I'd like to blame the Benadryl and steroids, but I got Benadryl and steroids with my chemo during the first round ... and while I noticed that I was up later than normal on Tuesday nights, I never had an entire Tuesday night where I just couldn't fall sleep). Once I got caught up on sleep last week, I didn't notice that I was any more fatigued than I'd been prior to the resumption of chemo. We'll see what happens tonight.
I'm continuing to do well with my recovery. I still don't have the stamina I did prior to surgery, but I'm just now 4 weeks out from my surgery. Everything I've read seems to indicate that it might be a few months yet before I feel completely back to normal (or at least what was normal for me prior to surgery).
It's playoff hockey season, and my Blues managed to eliminate the defending Stanley Cup champions last night. Hope springs eternal for us Blues fans! Let's go Blues!
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
