Welcome to our house:
Today was a rough day at PT. I woke up with a stiff leg and knee and it just has not loosened up at all. My exercises were difficult and rather than the 115 degree bend I got on Monday, darn knee would only give a 112 degree bend. It also was not being cooperative in straightening out. And I can honestly say it's been aching all darn day. I hope that tomorrow it comes around and isn't so stiff, I mean really, didn't it get the memo that I have goals!!
Today I baked CR a cake recipe I found a few weeks ago. It's called an Old Wives Cake and it's origins are Dutch. It sounded so interesting and it has anise in it. It's still cooling so I can't tell you yet if we like it, but it sure smells good and looks pretty:
If you're interested in the recipe I found it here at Jo Cooks. She has some great recipes and I love to read about what she is cooking or baking.
I'm going to finally get started on a very special quilt - everything is set out and ready (I did all the cutting before surgery - so the hard part is done). I've been busy with other silly little things around the house so I'm a bit late getting to my sewing, but that's okay, at least I feel up to it and have the focus to do it.
It's over 100 right now and is supposed to stay that way for several days. Typical for this time of year in our area. It's just not fun to be outside when it's this hot though, so I stay inside. CR still goes outside and does stuff - I personally don't know how he does it in the heat of the day. He's always puttering around and busy.
Tomorrow Madison has a day of beauty, which means bath and a haircut and it also means she will not be happy with me. While she is getting her beauty on, I'll be at my friend Kelly's house visiting and checking out a quilt she recently made. I can't wait to see this quilt the fabrics she described to me are gorgeous and I love the pattern she used.
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
