Yesterday morning, my back spasmed and I've been in quasi pain. If I cough/sneeze/hiccup, it really, really hurts. Ditto for getting off a chair and when I'm picking up something heavy from the floor. If I do anything else, I'm fine. So I spent pretty much all of yesterday on the couch watching DVDs with hubby (Bridge to Terabithia and a Miss Marple).
And I knit a sock:
Pauline bought the sock yarn and asked me to make her a pair of socks for a friend for Christmas. I started it late Thurs afternoon and on Fri at 10:30pm, it was done. That's gotta be a new record for me.
This morning, I needed to get out of the house for awhile. Hubby and I decided to go out to Fort Langley for the day. The weather was nice (for a change) so we stomped around and did some shopping.
I bought the monkey fabric from A Quilted Stitch. The sock blockers (only $6!!!) were from an antique mall. I would've bought more but these were the only ones in my size. These blockers are unusual because both of them are made from one piece of wire and are connected at the top. All the other ones that I saw today can be seperated. We stopped at a dollar store for felting equipment (bucket and plunger) and I also bought the "Deep Thoughts" notebook (the eyes crack me up) and Pooh stick pens. It was a nice day. Hubby is massaging my broken muscle and I'm going to lie on my heating pad for awhile.
