It was all well survived. Although TAO may be exhausted from treating me like the "Empress of the Known & Unknown Universe". All of which was totally his idea.

What was surprising was how much I missed being able to workout. So my Nurturance list for June will include various gentle exercises, where I plan to enjoy the feeling instead of cursing the time/effort.

The happiest highest point was when I was sitting, legally stoned, on the patio swing and I got to see a Hummingbird perform his mating dance. Right There. Wow! That's the stuff that makes all this work worth it.

Unfortunately, what little knitting I did had to be ripped, because for some queer reason my gauge becomes repressively tight when I am stoned. You'd think it would be the opposite, but No.

The only survivor was On Hold from Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson. Done in ShibuKnits in Wasabi.

Closed for Repairs

The blog is going to be closed for a bit as I apparently am in need of repair. I am going to have abdominal surgery next week, which is also Mother's Day/Death Anniversary weekend; both of which I fully expect to knock me down a little. So my primary focus for the next bit is going to be healing and getting back up to speed at work since contracts have ugly and costly clauses for non-fulfillment. That will translate into work/sleep/work/sleep/work/sleep.

I don't know that I will get a lot of knitting done, but I was in the middle of a yarn crush with my stash anyway. You know the type, where you Love Everything in the Stash, and want to Cast On about 9 projects all at once; which translates into not that much productive knitting anyway.

Looking forward to seeing y'all again when I feel better.
