After yesterday’s post, I did go to the doctor. I’m glad I did, for more than just peace of mind. I did get that. Apparently, it could take a month or more for the swelling to go down completely and I could become even more bruised-looking than I am now. According to the doctor, everything is progressing just fine, nothing to worry about. I told him I’d keep using the arnica oil to help keep the bruising to a minimum. He smiled and said to go for it. Peace of mind!
The clinic we use is about 2 km (just over a mile) from where we live; it was a cloudy but dry day, not cold, so I decided to walk. I’m glad I did. I discovered a walkway between two roads; the walkway included a lovely green space with trees, a marsh, a wooden bridge and a nice dose of peaceful quiet.
Walking through this idyllic little pathway just felt so… good! I’m glad I had the camera with me (I always have it with me now).
Once I got home, I decided it was time to relax, time to knit. I plugged myself into the current audiobook (Da Vinci’s Code) and knitted the afternoon away.
I really like this yarn. I can already tell that I’ll enjoy wearing this cardigan. The fabric feels so soft, so cushy, so smooth. I’m already into the second skein and down by almost 200 stitches. A part of me wants the sweater to be done already, just so I can wear it!
All in all, it was a wonderful, relaxing, productive day.
