Lime & Violet's Daily Chum!!!!

Wow!!!! I'm going to be featured on Lime & Violet's Daily Chum as their "Etsy site of the week" sometime soon. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. I can't blog. I can't knit. I've got to DYE! Lots! I'm practically jumping up and down.

Otherwise life is peaceful and calm. Which in my stressful family is pretty good.

Yesterday was take MOM to physical therapy day. She's 93, a bit forgetful (sometimes a lot forgetful, other times, right on the money), and is wobbly. Age and osteoporosis have dropped her height down to about 4'8". At her tallest, she was 4"11", never a big lady, but a powerhouse! All she had to do was shake her finger at you, and governments toppled. What she lacked in height, she made up for in strength. What a woman! She's my hero and role model in almost everything. And I find, as I get older, that I'm more and more like her, good points and bad.

So now she goes to PT twice a week, a minimum of a 3-4 hour excursion on my part as the schlepper. She doesn't like it because she would rather sit, but she really needs it to help her balance. When she walks in, everyone greets her, the podiatrist on staff gives her a kiss. All that attention can't hurt. One day the elevator wasn't working. So her doctor came downstairs and scooped her up and carried her up 2 flights. Everyone, including the MOM, howled with laughter. She's still talking about it.

I've got to go dye yarn. There will be no living with me for the next few days. My poor Hubbo.
