I discovered yesterday that in addition to being dull, I’m also clumsy! I was outside beginning Maggie’s formal obedience training. In teaching her to "heel" I’m to "stride confidently." Well, I strode confidently right into the edging at the side of the lawn and ended up with an up close personal confrontation with the grass. I have scrapes and bruises on my leg, but my shoulder took the brunt of the fall. I don’t appear to have broken anything, but I definitely did some damage. It’s a good thing I don’t have anything physically challenging coming up in the next few weeks. I’m going to be taking it easy so I have the strength to haul my luggage around the airport!
After I went inside nursing my dignity and my bruises, I decided a little light duty was in order. A friend had asked me to make a label for a baby quilt she is making:
Sorry for the fuzzy photo. I hope she likes it. The quilt actually has more hot pink and lime greens in it, but those were the hottest pinks I have in my limited thread collection. I was also able to spend some time playing with the lessons for my digitizing software. There is so much the program can do, but I just haven’t had time to play with it.
This week was spring break at school. I still turned in an assignment, so I’m a week ahead. I’ll continue to do that until I leave for Orlando, so while I’m there I should be able to relax. In addition, I’ll spend the next week and a half reading for my other class. That will take place on the 26th. I have an 8-page paper to write after the class and I hope I can get that done before I leave as well.
I have had some knitting progress as well. I finished the back of Torgeir, Bill’s Lavold sweater, and have started on the front. No pictures because I hurt too much to get up out of my recliner and go take one. Instead I will leave you with two of the cutest granddaughters ever:
