I still live

and have even been knitting - almost done with a pair of socks. But I am in a pretty big flare from travel and am not doing much. I will try to get some pics up of the sock before I start the pair I am going to felt for slippers.

Of course, despite my flare - today hubby asked me to help him in the yard a bit so I did. Hopefully I won't feel worse and really really hopefully the sun allergy won't kick in - I slathered myself with the super duper sun screen (that I have to order more of) and wore a hat etc. but I am still red - just hold off on the burn and itch please. I really don't want to do steroid shots ... every year I do the guessing game of how much sun I can actually take before it kicks in.

Anyone reading this please send good thoughts out to the universe that the landscaping guy we called calls back today so we can get our yard cleaned. I have weeds taller than me in my back yard (with lots of stickers on them so machinery is better to get it out) It has only taken 3 years to get hubby to give up on his friend doing it and calling someone else - --- so I really want this guy to follow up with a date and get it done quickly. What we did out there today was all prep work for this guy to come and do his thing.

Rho, I REALLY want to see some pics of your socks and any other knitting you've been doing. It's been too long. You know it has. GO FOR IT, GIRL!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for your garden! And I support Jo - show us some knitting, please! *^v^*

Take it easy in the yard! Heavy gardening is one of those things that really, really, really gets me. I'm more of a pointer, director and admirer these days.
Please help yourself to the Fibrofighter ribbon.

Move to Phoenix Rho....and you'll never have to pull weeds again. You can put in cactus and rock gardens.

I hate them, but at least, you don't have to mow them.

Feel better soon!

Rho, I understand what you are going through. And thanks for the link you posted to the site. I have her book. She's really a pioneer in getting new thinking going and getting Fibro recognized as an auto-immune disease. Love you Gal!
