I saw the orthopedic doctor today and he said my fracture is healing well. I’m to “wean” myself off the boot over the next week but to keep it close by to have if the terrain warrants caution/more protection. It’s not unusual here to encounter sloping or uneven ground and my ankle won’t be up to that quite yet. I have some nerve impairment that he feels will improve but says it’s not guaranteed and some tendinitis that he told me to expect to get worse before it gets better … it’s always good to know what to expect!
I can’t believe how fast the leaves are changing now and the color just takes my breath away. This is the back yard again but we had a 30 minute drive to the doctor and the trees here are just gorgeous. Keith and I are going to take a drive tomorrow to Amicalola State Park so I’m sure I’ll have more photos to share.
In the sewing room today, I made good progress on the big stitching on the doll quilt. I’m really enjoying this. Who knows, if I keep at it I might even brave a larger project again but at this point I’m still worried I’d put it away and it’d take me a couple years like the pink and purple one did.
On Election Day I started a new Linen Stitch blanket. The yarn is Lion’s Brand Mandala Ombré which is probably my current favorite. It’s very soft! The colorway on this one is Mantra.
Finally, Finn and I continue to enjoy the fire. After the last 6 years in Florida, it’s nice to have a fire each evening! It’s one of the things I loved about Minneapolis.
