It is the month of June, The month of leaves and roses, When pleasant sights salute the eyes And pleasant scents the noses. ~ Nathaniel Parker Willis

I know a lot of bloggers say this, but I have the best readers. Thank you for all of the comments and emails I received after my last post. You were all so kind and encouraging. I was also so grateful to hear from people who have had this injury and have recovered. That’s just what I needed to hear. Thank you.

I’m able to sit up for short periods of time now and I’ve been using that time to work on my Tropical Monkey Socks.  I absolutely love this pattern.  It’s interesting enough to ward off boredom, but easy enough to knit while watching TV.   They are both ready for their heels:

Here’s a closeup of the pattern:

I’ve discovered the fun part of having a cane. I can lie on the couch and bug the dogs:

I wish I would have snapped a picture of the look on Kishka’s face after I did this. She seemed to be saying, “Listen, lady. If I had opposable thumbs I’d take that cane and beat you with it.”

The feast:

Name something you think is “the best.”
What? Are we in third grade or something? Silly question.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 highest), how stressed are you today?
Well, that depends. If I really think about everything going on in my life right now, it would be a 9. However, I’ve been avoiding reality so I’d say a 2.

What kind of cleanser do you use to wash your face?
Neutrogena Facial Bar. My former sister-in-law introduced me to this wonderful product many moons ago (1993?) and it’s all I use now.

Main Course
Tonight is a blue moon! What is something that you believe only happens “once in a blue moon.”
Once in a blue moon . . . I have good luck. Not to be pessimistic, but 2007 is not a banner year for me so far.

When was the last time it rained where you live?

Last week sometime.

    Your Monkeys look great. My daughtr made them as well and loved the stitch pattern. I’m glad you are feeling a little bit better!

  2. Those socks are gorgeous! I haven’t tried that pattern, but I love the way it looks. The colors are some of my favorites, too.

  3. Glad you’re feeling better! The socks are very pretty so far!

  4. I just read your last post about your back. I am so sorry to hear you’re suffering so, but it’s good to know things seem to be improving. Puppy face pictures when you’re able, please! 😉
