I should just sit around today and simply rest up from all the activity of the past 5 days! I had so much fun with family and we did so much playing--and working! Just a little recap--Friday, picked up Jo at the airport and Tessa came out for supper. Saturday, the niece, nephew and kids came for the afternoon and evening for more partying--in the pool, and with fantastic smoked ribs off the grill for supper. Sunday and Monday, Jo, Lily and I went shopping for a cell phone for her as well as other things she needed. (Now, she's no longer hogging my phone all day!) Both days, I did a lot of sitting with my leg elevated, worked on the knitting I've got going and generally supervised things around the house.
Back to the doc yesterday. Knee is doing fine--the pain I feel is normal after this kind of surgery so I'm relieved.
Yesterday afternoon, Don and I worked together to transplant the azeleas from the west side of the house where they were dying a long, slow death, to the north side of the pool where I hope they will do better.
Today, I hope to move some hostas in there as well as a couple of ferns and some Lily-of-the-Valley. And that bed should be complete--for now. lol
Alas, I won't be sitting around today. I have a huge patch of weeding to do and I hope to make it to the store to order the tile I need to finish the countertop on the new deck. I'll post when I have it finished--next weekend, I hope.
Oh, I almost forgot. I started working on this table runner that I will give to my friend, Elaine, as a thank you for all the times she's let us stay at her house. It's a pattern from a book of runners by "Gathering Friends."
