What do you do when you can't use your arm? My right shoulder joint, as well as the elbow, and wrist have been acting up lately. This time however, even with pain killers, every movement is painful.
Just twiddling my thumbs is just not going to happen. For one day I thought I could do without knitting, and spinning, to give the old shoulder a rest. But it's hard! Since I can't knit, I ripped out a WIP. Also very satisfying.
What's left is reading, and eating. I baked something. It was an experiment. It was delicious!
I made Italian Prunes & Ricotta pies! I used an Almond pie crust, no gluten in any of it. I mixed together ricotta cheese, eggs, cinnamon, maple syrup, a little coconut flour, vanilla flavor, salt, put some halved prunes on top of it, and topped it off with some almond, butter, salt, maple syrup crumble. Voila!
It started out as a pie, but turned into some delicious crumble on the plate. No matter.
Denny didn't feel so hot either. He's got tummy troubles, started during the night. I keep telling him, to stop eating crap, and stealing from the counter, but does he listen? NO! He still cracks me up, because he dragged the one mat beside the other, because it was clearly much better to sleep there.
The Whiteies relaxed in the studio, watching the world go by through the window.Maggie doesn't look very relaxed here. That's because I called her, and there was something going on outside as well, as you can see how she has one ear on me, and one tuned to the outside.
I hope my right arm improves fast, because right now it hangs there like a limp noodle, and hurts with each movement. I didn't know how much a shoulder has to work for an arm to function. It really sucks.
