Crochet Project

I'm currently on crutches, awaiting a knee replacement. I'm still working and having difficulty getting around with two crutches and trying to carry things at the same time. So I worked up a little caddy that attaches to my crutch, so that I can tote mail, or carry my breakfast yogurt back to my desk, or my water bottle that I fill at the water fountain. It turns out to be a handy little gadget, and everyone at work thinks it's a pretty clever item. I sure know it's helped me - I hate asking people to help me carry things, etc.

We're expecting some thunderstorms tonight. Hope they aren't too bad.

Wayne came home from work yesterday with a paper outlining a trip that some of the folks he works with are planning. A 12-night cruise to the Caribbean in January 2010! What a temptation! I LOVE cruises! My favorite form of vacation - it's a hotel that takes you to different exotic locations! I'm not sure if we'll do it, though. That would take just about all the vacation days Wayne has available. 12 nights on a cruise sure sounds great!

We're Having a Heat Wave - A Tropical Heat Wave!

Temperatures are in the 90s through this coming Wednesday. We went from early spring to late summer! Whew! The 3 amigos (dogs) don't spend too much time outside. They do their thing and they're right back in the house. I don't blame them. Dog's best friend is central air conditioning!

My cortisone shot in the knee gave me some pain relief. 3 days worth, to be exact. When I called the doctor to let him know I was having more problems, he said he expected it. Replacement surgery is imminent. I should call this week to schedule it, I guess. I won't be dreading it like the first one, seeing as how I know what to expect now.

Watching the Phillies game is finally fun. They seem to be on track this year. Too bad my Dad didn't get to see another good year of Phillies baseball.

I came across a really cute pattern I want to try on Ana Paula's blogspot. I'm not an Amigurumi fan, but this little jellyfish is adorable. Scroll down to see the jellyfish - makes me want to make a dozen of them!

Stay cool, everyone!
