Kitties Do Not Like Cold, Non-Sunshine Days







It has been a long time since my last post. I have been busy knitting, just not posting. I read other blogs but have not left any comments. I am still mending from my surgery of June 25th. My knee is not cooperating. I have had artificial cartilage injected into this knee. I still can not bear weight which means I can not go up or down stairs. The NYC subway system is not a delight as they are not handicap friendly. I am practicing pain management without the use of drugs. What joy that brings!
