My stabbed upper calf is feeling quite itchy, but not in a bad way. It is doing healing itching. This makes me want to discuss my lower calf, as if I have calves organised at my house in some hierarchical manner. I don't. Do you know that in Tasmania, you can ask 'Where do you live?' and someone can reply: Upper Penguin. My word!! It's as good as living Innaloo!!! But back to ME!!! I have had an inordinate amount of fun with the high-tech aqua proof dressings ( nothing medical is just water proof you know!!): peeling them off and applying fresh ones. How ever did I fill my time before I stabbed myself? I just don't know.
Thank you to every one for their most kind (and not laughing) comments re the aforementioned stabbing!! There are no red lines going up my leg, and apart from a severe feeling of foolishness, everything is continuing as normal. I am going to try not to stab, lance, slash or in any other way injure myself over the next few weeks!!!
Peri is a picture of health, though she almost ate 50 cents today - the coin not the 'singer'. Harki has FlippyFloppy Ear again and she is off to the Hospital to see the Doctor tomorrow, even though it is more expensive!! Who amongst us waits another day to take our child to the doctor because it is cheaper?? For myself, maybe, but not for The Labradors... anyhow, I was putting special 'stuff' in Harki's ear to clean it and I was feeding her little treats as she is so good to endure all the pokiness and wateriness. Peri was not having a treat as she was in no way medically involved, she was just leaping about hopefully. I finished all the ear cleaning and picked up the 50 cent piece I had found in my bag and before I could say Jack Robinson Peri had snapped it from my hand and it was in her mouth. Here, dear reader (and I don't know why I have suddenly gone all Austen or Heyer???) is where I pictured a very expensive trip to Hospital for Peri, but fortunately for me money tastes horrible and she spat it out. Of course, her plan worked and she was immediately given a little treat for spitting out the coin she snatched!!!
I have made 3 Sock Knitting Totes, or Sknitts as I like to write now because it is shorter, though not now I have explained it of course. They are incognito, insepia-o actually. I am posting them off when I am up to it, probably Monday. I have also finished all the stitching on my Angels and they are about to be sewn up into bags. I hate doing the little buttonhole applique stitch on the stars, I don't have a technique, I just muddle about a lot on the point. I have not knitted, though I have managed to snavel a copy of Interweave Holiday Gifts and I am looking forward to the the new Knitscene which is about to be published as well.
It has been hot, so hot that in my non-airconditioned car I want to cry it is so hot. I never really long for Summer, I long for a kind of warmish Autumn. I am not T. E. 2paw, I think I am more 2paw of the Antarctic!!!
Everyone on the North American continent has been thankful these last few days. MrsDrWho and I, while we applaud their gratitude, wonder how they ever fit in being thankful with all that the day entails, and then just a month later Christmas???? It is beyond us really. Maybe they are in a different timestream???
I have some new books as well, Trudi Canavan's latest: Voice of the Gods and more Doctor Who and Tamora Pierce. I can pick them up tomorrow!!!
