What? October!

The weather has shown the character of autumn in South Carolina this week with night-time lows mid-upper forties and highs around high sixties to seventy ranges.  It’s really awesome – my favorite time of year.  Of course, it won’t stay this way for a while.  We’ll have lots of warmer days, but the preview is spectacular!

During my morning ritual Wednesday I bent over to dry and take the towel off my hair, and when I stood up my back went out.  Oh, man, the pain!  Of course this is one of the days my chiropractor has afternoon hours, and I couldn’t get in until 6:00 pm.  She was surprised since my ‘issues’ are usually neck and shoulders.  One of my legs was ¾ inch longer than the other it was out so much.  She got that fixed and it felt so much better, but it’s still recuperating.  Depending on my position, and standing from sitting is still painful.  One good thing is that my stitching chair is the most comfortable place to be – so that’s where I’m heading when this is finished!

I’ve been working on Tea with the Queen this week.  I think it’s coming along very nicely.

Thanks for stopping by today, and come back soon!
