Good morning. It's sunny this morning with temps sitting at 20F degrees. It's supposed to warm up a bit to 39F degrees later today. This would be nice because I have a couple errands to do. I know Pogo would like to go for a ride. It's been a while since he's been able to go shopping with me.
Yesterday I had an appointment with my orthopedic doctor. I really enjoy seeing this man and talking with him. He's honest and upfront with you. His bedside manner is awesome. He always speaks highly of his wife, and will refer to her often when he is explaining something.
We were discussing back braces. He said that they used to be called corsets, but that his wife informed him that they are now called body shapers. He said that wearing a body shaper could help to alleviate lower back pain. This, in turn, would help to alleviate some hip and leg pain. Hmmm, I think I just might give this a try. I do have one, I just have never worn it.
I have a couple more photos that SIL Mac took while touring Kamakura. I have more that I'll post another day.
Mac is half way through his time in Japan, and methinks that he is beginning to get homesick. It's always exciting to visit other countries, but there's really no place quite like home.
Last night, I was looking through some of my crochet patterns and came across a couple great ideas for birthday and/or Christmas gifts. I can't post photos of these patterns just yet until I decide whether or not I'm going to make them.
Today I have a new quick page for you. I realize that some of my quick pages are a bit strange, but I never know how my pages will come out when I start working on them. Sometimes my mind will settle on an element in a kit, then it just goes from there. Anyway, I hope you can use this one.
Here is your download link:
I have to look up what I need for the courts in order to not have to do jury duty. I got my notice in the mail a couple days ago, and when I went online to register it said that I will require a letter from my doctor. In order to spend a day at the courthouse, I will need to take my walker, my portable oxygen and an extra battery for the oxygen. Even then, the two batteries will not last more than five hours.
On that note, I shall take my leave. I need to figure out my menu for tonight's supper (DIL will be coming by) and I want to do a bit of blog reading before getting started on my day. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
