Good early morning, my friends. I have to write fast this morning. It's the first day of a hectic week. Someday I'll learn not to schedule every appointment under the sun for the first few days home after a trip. I haven't learned it yet though. This morning starts with a trip to the hospital for an x-ray of my shoulder, and then a visit with the "shoulder guy." I'm not expecting anything to come of this. The visit is just a routine follow-up. My shoulder and thumb are feeling pretty good, although I still can't raise my arm over my head completely. The pain is minimal these days, and I've stopped thinking about it all the time.
But let's talk about something else, okay? We finished unpacking the camper yesterday, and I had some time to get back to my sewing room. Bliss. First though, I did some slow-stitching. You might remember I took a pre-printed "kitty alphabet" panel along on our trip, but only just got a start on it yesterday.
As for the week ahead, I wisely gave myself tomorrow off, but then I have appointments on Wednesday and Thursday. At some point, I'll need to buy some groceries. There are appointments next Monday too. After that, I think I'm finished for the time being.
Oh yes, and let's not forget...the roofers are supposed to start today. That's a laugh. It isn't really a laugh, but more of a sneer. We've heard from no one, although we did receive an email two weeks ago assuring us the job would start on time and someone would be contacting us. When no one called, we decided to call them last Friday to say WTF? We were told the installer would be calling us. Then, we received another call to see if the installer had called us. (No.) Oh, well, definitely the installer will be calling us. We did not receive a call. So, we'll see. Mike and I talked about it last night. If the work has not started in earnest by next Monday, we will be canceling the contract and moving on. Enough is enough.
So on that happy note, I'm going to squeeze in some slow-stitching before I need to get in the shower and get moving. Roof or no roof, I expect we'll still have internet by tomorrow morning, and you can learn the exciting conclusion of the roof debacle.

The October posy block is pretty, but OMG those embroidered cats are very adorable and will be the star of the show! (aside from the real fur babies, of course!)
Thank you for my morning smile (Smitty in soft focus). Now I just hope you and Mike are smiling at the roof installer when he arrives today. Thinking positive on your behalf!
Wow your roofing saga just continues. I hope that the shoulder appointment goes well today. I had my follow up this summer for my shoulder replacement and my doctor was very pleased with his handy work. He said I had done a really good job with physical therapy….which he never prescribed and I did on my own because of a stupid pandemic. He said I was in the top 90% for recovery. I just keep seeing the things I can’t do so that was good to hear.
I think you have made amazing progress settling in back at home. While you may feel you have more to do, I'm impressed and very happy you have already found time to work in your sewing room. All the projects you shared are lovely. I don't recall the kitty alphabet stitchery before, so I probably missed that post. Super cute and so you! I will keep my fingers crossed the roofer/installer comes thru and starts work this week, even better that they quickly finish! I'll be on pins and needles waiting to see what has happened in your post tomorrow.
Such a cute kitty alphabet panel--nice you could get some slow stitching in...
Welcome home...despite all those appointments--but then they will all be over, right?
I usually need a day or four to recover from a trip - you've hit the ground running! Your stitching is lovely as always, and Smitty - you hunka.
