In The Shop

I’m going “into the shop tomorrow” — my surgery is at 1:15 p.m. Here’s hoping it all goes smoothly and that I’m soon pain-free and mobile again.

I’ve been in a somewhat dark and tight mental space in the past week. Concerns about surgery, the outcome, and a certain loneliness from a disconnected friendship have contributed to a sense of isolation. I reached my limit with Claire one morning and boy, was that a little loud and scary! Husband agreed I need more “free” time, and we are figuring out how that will work. And hey, what are cupboard doors for if not to shut them firmly and vigorously now and then?

Heh. As of tomorrow afternoon, I’ll have a lot of free time for a few days. I’ve got a pile of books and all my knitting gear by my bed. Aunt LP arrives Saturday evening. I’m excited about this, though I’m not sure she knows what she’s getting into!

We went to the park this afternoon, where I took a zillion photos and videos since I finally remembered to pack the camera. It was mid-60s, sunny, breezy, and I was rejuvenated. Claire is such an explorer! And I love her more and more and more.

she is beautiful
