after the storm

Two days in a row. The weather guy got it wrong two days in a row. We were suppose to get more rain yesterday but the sun was out all day. Rain is in our forecast for today too and again it looks like the sun decided to stay. I won't complain since my whole neighborhood is still cleaning up after the storm this weekend. Lots of branches and trees all over the streets but at least the flood alert was lifted. Living a half mile from the river, that is always good news.

Well I'm off to go to my first physical therapy session this morning. After all these months of dealing with the pain in my shoulder I finally got around to getting xrays. So it wasn't a torn rotator cuff or tendonitis after all. I have mild degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis. Basically I'm aging before my time (I think I always knew that lol!) The PT should help to strengthen my joints so I can get full movement back I hope.

I thought this vintage circus poster was too perfect for this post!

I can't believe we're more than halfway through March already! I just saw a few more bags added to the Artful Bag Challenge. I love the creative embellished purses my ladies are doing. Next month we are having our first bag themed ATC swap and I hope some of you can join us for that too. I'll have sign ups for it posted soon.

Have a lovely Tuesday.

I wish we had some rain down here; we've not had any in MONTHS and my poor little garden is really wanting some.

Awww girl, sorry to hear about the arthritis. Hope you get to feeling better soon with the help of the exercises. I've been meaning to get my bag finished and posted but things have gone from hectic to "pull your hair out" very quickly. Hubby broke his ankle this weekend while we were building my studio. :( But I'm not giving up, I'm getting that bag done if it kills me, I need a creative outlet.

Hi Anna, I hope that the therapy works wonders for you. We have to think positive. I know this will work. I hope that your weather returnes to normal and you have sunny skies again. We are having winter like weather again so tomorrow we may wake up to icy roads...Oh well..Hope your arm is better.

I am sorry to hear about your arthritis, but it makes me happy to know that you did finally find a diagnosis and be able to get the treatment you need. We are getting a little snow - in spring! I hope it doesn't damage our daffodils - which were just getting ready to bloom! Take care, dear friend! Theresa
