Advance Notice for Tuesday, and Sidebar Notes

Filed under: Announcements,Blog Admin,Daily Life — folkcat at 10:28 pm on Monday, March 26, 2007

I may choose to skip posting tomorrow (Tuesday). I had a trip-and-fall today – caught my foot on a network cable in Gryphon’s office, and after some struggle trying not to lose my balance, I went crashing onto my left knee and hand.

The knee is a bit sore to the touch, and not happy when I try to tuck my feet under me in the armchair as I’m accustomed to doing. I’ll almost certainly have a bruise there tomorrow, but no worse than that. I’m walking fine, and I only notice an issue when I actually touch the area.

The hand, though, is a little more troublesome. I wasn’t aware of injuring it at first, but a little while later, when I pushed myself up out of my chair, I felt a snap in the side of the hand below the pinky finger. It felt a little like a rubberband sliding over a bumpy knob. My hand is objecting to a firm pinching motion, and if I try to grasp tightly or close my fist, the knuckles of the pinky and ring fingers (right at the base of the fingers) complain vigorously.

Since nearly every type of craft I do involves pinching and/or grasping motions, that puts me on the sideline for a day or two. Poo!

And now, I’m noticing that typing is tending to make the whole hand tingle a little. So I should probably cut this short as well.

Sidebar Notes

I’ve decided to remove the Calendar of Southern NH Knit Meetings from my sidebar. The truth is, I am still only attending one of those groups – the weekly Thursday night Knitting Around at Panera.

This left me out of touch enough about the other meetings listed that I couldn’t be sure anymore whether the information was accurate. So, rather than provide uncertain data, I thought it best not to post it at all.

In its place, I’ve put up a 105 Things About Folkcat page. This was something I posted back in March 3, 2006, in preparation for the one and only Swap I’ve been involved in – the Pirate Booty Swap. I hope you find it interesting!

OUCH! You poor thing! I hate it when that happens. Someone needs to invent a craft we can do with our feet so when we have hand issues – we can still be busy! Soak you hand in a basin of warm water and epsom salt – believe it or not it really helps!

Oh no! I hope it’s just a bruise in there or something easily healable! Know that I’m thinking about you and wishing you pain free crafting thoughts.
