Why hello there.

How's it going out there? Over here, things are moving along slowly. Will is finally recovered from his illness and back troubles. (He threw his back out coughing!) And my hand finally seems to be on the mend. I sprained it or strained it or something last Monday while I was doing yard work. I didn't really take heed of the swelling and pain and kept on knitting and doing things. I mean, it's kind of hard not to use my right hand for anything. Then on Friday, while knitting, the pain got so severe, I realized I had to try to take it easy. So I haven't knit in four days and it is making me batty because I have so much to get done. It's been very frustrating, this hand thing. But it feels better today so I am going to try to get back to the knitting.

On the not so bright side, I am totally exhausted today. I slept maybe three hours last night. Damn cats. The second the weather warms up, they decide they need to prowl around all night. I am about ready to wring both of their necks. They are napping right now, natch.

Also on the agenda for the day, another trip to the paint store. I am going to paint my office and I am having trouble deciding on the shade of aqua that I want. Yesterday I tried out the Tinted Mint and it's nice but maybe too light. So today I am going to try Spearmint which is a bit darker and see how that looks. I am terrible at this painting stuff. Yesterday I stuck my hand right on the freshly painted wall and then I stepped on the paint can lid. Nice.

I think I am going to buy some pansies today too. I'm itching to plant flowers and pansies will survive even if we have one more freeze. And geraniums. I always have a pot of geraniums on the front porch. Of course, me walking into the garden section is not a great idea because I am likely to walk out with a whole cart of flowers.

Hope you all are enjoying some warmer weather. Happy Earth Day!
