I have been absent from my blog a lot lately.
I have no real explanation for this other then my chronic pain. Sometimes the pain is so intense that thinking beyond the pain is to much to ask. Some days I am at my best to tolerate myself let alone putting anything together to share with the world.
I woke up a week ago with my neck so wrenched that I could not turn to the right at all. The muscles were all spasming and it stayed that way for nearly a week. Nothing helped. Not massage, not ice, not heat, not stretching. It took a combination of all these things and a whole lot of resting to get my neck better. Its still not 100% better but it is getting there.
So how do you treat this kind of pain? Do you reach for a bottle and hope it helps? do you curl up into the fetal position and wish for death? Do tell.
Over the weekend I found someone selling about 3 yards of fabric that I just love for the dining room chairs. I paid 3.00 for it! A dollar a yard for fabric! It had to be washed twice because the person smoked but a vinegar rinse and two washes on the gentle cycle (because its got raw edges) did the trick.
I also took some fun pictures of the moon last night with my camera.
All week last week I was visited by this beautiful Butterfly. I got pictures of it on a few different days.
I think this concludes my week and weekend. I am looking forward to getting back to my blog and sharing here. Lets hope that my body cooperates with me.
