What an experience – not to be repeated. It was so wet when I cleaned the barn last week, I put down extra shavings. That worked great because it was much easier to clean this week. The problem: because of less weight I used the shovel instead of the pitchfork. That would have been okay if I had handled it like the pitchfork. Instead, without realizing it, I used a different motion. I have been unable to use my right hand because of a swollen wrist from muscles not usually in play. For an extreme right handed person, eating or writing left handed is a challenge. Needless to say, I felt very tied down during those days and I am so happy to have wrists and hands normal again.
Before the wrist incident, I knitted these socks to this point, but find I don’t like this wool and gauge for socks. I will start over with a different yarn.
GOTTA LOVE a SON
We have an adult son who lives in a part of the house and with whom we share a kitchen and laundry room. I told him, it was his turn to buy laundry detergent.
