I did some fairly intensive weeding yesterday, and today the muscles in my right hand hurt. Fooey. I had hoped that the strained muscle would be better enough that I could weed. :( So I guess I'll have to scale back the weeding efforts. Again. If I scale them back too much farther, I won't be doing any! I suspect the kids will be getting a lot more "can you weed?" requests this summer.

I put a hummingbird feeder in the front flowerbed, in amongst the bleeding hearts. Three hours later, I saw a hummingbird at the feeder. I guess they found it.
There is so little notable going on here that I've completely missed a week.
  • OneAct (competitive theater) is over;
  • FCB has been rehearsing for a Feb 26 concert (extra rehearsal called for next week as Farmington doesn't have school tomorrow and thus the building is closed);
  • church choir is bringing back a piece we did 18 months ago (DB will be singing with us, as he likes this one);
  • OT is still at the 'get inflammation down before we can start treating the cause, meanwhile no knitting, limit playing and typing time, ice after rehearsal, etc' stage;
  • the weather continues to be cold and snowy.
In lieu of knitting, I've been inventorying the yarn I own and sorting fabric in the workroom (I'm not supposed to run scissors, either). And reading and playing games on my Nook.

Finally went to the doc. "as you suspected, it is tendinitis in the extensor tendons on two outer fingers and to a lesser extent on the thumb." Treatment is rest (as much as possible), ice, anti-inflammatories, and OT, which I start on Thursday. So, not unexpected but still rather annoying. She doesn't expect me to stop playing entirely, at least not yet -- if things don't start getting better within a few weeks, I may have to; and she strongly suggests that I take the summer off to let things heal as completely as possible.
