A short post tonight. What a day! It started with PT this morning. We did dry needling again which seems to be helping a little. As a surprise, it turns out I can bend the needles with my mind! No, seriously…. In the middle of the session, a spasm hit the leg she was working on. The spasm was intense enough to bend the needle in my muscle! She looked at me and said, “you bent the needle!”. I just told her, “yes, imagine what that feels like within the body” … After we had a good laugh over the whole thing, she was even more determined to get me past this flare and in a better place again. If I hadn't been in a rather focused frame of mind, I would have taken a photo but, hindsight. :)
After getting home, Mom, Sam, Ben (once he was home from work), and I cooked all afternoon. We are regulars at Maggie Casey’s store (Shuttles, Spindles, and Skeins in Boulder, CO). Tonight was her yearly Rock Day celebration and potluck. So, of course, we had to bring a ton of food! Tortilla Soup, Potato Soup, and Sticky Toffee Pudding. Back in the olden days, Rock Day was the celebration of fiber workers returning to their jobs after the holidays. These days, it’s just an excuse for fiber artists to get together, socialize, and eat another fun meal before trying to lose the holiday weight.
