Activity!

Today I am doing things!

I want to be eating these cookies. Maybe I will make them and THEN eat them.

I'm about to be dyeing yarn in a orange red pale color. Hard to explain. I have the image in my head and can maybe make it happen--which makes me feel like I'm composing again (I composed classical music for strings for a very short time a long time ago) because I composed multiple parts in my head and then had to figure out how to write it down.

Also I hung some art for the first time and switched out some other art today in my apartment, and it is like I have a new apartment. Or at least I'm noticing a wall now that I didn't notice before because it's white like the other walls ... suddenly my apartment is bigger.

Perhaps I am reading a little too much design*sponge, or not enough, but I want to do everything. Or at least hold stamping classes and charge $90 a person per hour.

My arms are starting to feel better than they did a week ago, when the pain went crazy. Doing nothing at all has been good to them. Imagine that--stop using a body part that's injured and it heals a little. Rest = less inflammation and compression. Insert a Neo whoa here.

I am also about to purchase a book holder. Holding books open is proving to be pain-inducing, which is what happens when your thumbs are injured ... and palms ... and elbows ... anyway, since all of you readers are also readers of books, I may end up recommending the thing if it is as good as it seems. Suspend judgment for now.

Glad to hear it...glad that the pain is getting better...and...if red wine is the cause of the migranines...there are LOTS of other things to drink...

Resting a body part to let it heal??? Amazing..I did that once when I was lifting...my tricep hurt all the time...so I eased off on using it as much and it...got better...

comment function...yeah...

Hi Christine! You sound like you've been coffee-ing. Caffeine-chipper like. Once AWP is over (I'm excited but STRESSED) we must Paradiso. You can bring your book holder.
