Spin Cycle...

No, I'm not doing laundry. I've found one of my activities I can still do with the cast: spinning! No, not the kind of spinning they do at the gym! This kind:


It was a nice day, so I took the wheel out on the front deck, so Rocky and Sunny could have some company while they enjoyed the sunshine. I have tried to knit, but just can't manage it with my thumb in… Continue
