Next up was my OB/GYN. He needed to check out my internal vaginal stitches. Ugh. Good news is I'm healing very nicely, everything looks great and there are no infections. Bad news is it's still VERY tender. Not great news for the IO.
As I leave the medical building with Iodine in my gut and parts of me on hiatus for another MONTH, I decide I needed a treat. But what do I do?? My sky looks like this
|it was a constant drizzle all day|
and my weather feels like this
|this was at 2pm|
so I decide to get something that looks like this!

There is a LYS near the medical building, but I never stop. I either don't have the time or I don't have the energy to stop in. I know the owner from a previous yarn shop and she sort of reminds me of a hyper puppy. She's very nice, but she's also VERY eager to please which can be a bit much. Today she was very helpful in pointing out the sock yarn, but there were others in the store so she was distracted. Honestly I have to say she wasn't quite as *energetic*, which was nice. This came home with me as well.

I had abt 5 different skeins in my hand and decided on these two. Between rent being due Saturday and all my medical bills coming in, the last thing I should be doing was buying yarn. However after the past few weeks, I figured it was worth it!!
The bright one will be cast on in the next day or so. After finishing the grey socks and working on my brown ones
I need a break from the neutrals with some COLOR!!
Speaking of color, doesn't this just look yummy????
At this point I pulled out all the stops (did I mention the iodine?? AND the 4 weeks?!?) and stopped at Jason's Deli for my Chicken Salad salad. While others were getting steaming bowls of soup (40s in mid afternoon is COLD) I'm getting a cool and light salad. It never disappoints!
