This is why I have been having pain in my knee and have not been able to run :(
I had an MRI last Wednesday because of pain in my left knee---it hurt to put any weight on it. I have bee staying off it as much as possible and it is feeling better but have decided to have arthroscopic surgery on March 6th. I am hoping that I have a quick recovery and will be back to my normal pace (which I hope includes running). Probably no more half marathons in my near future, but will settle for being able to do 3 to 4 miles. Fortunately once I get through the Lenexa Hook-in this weekend I do not have any plans in March...leave for California for the baby shower on April 9th so I should be pretty well recovered.
Hope to see lots of you this weekend at the Lenexa Hook-in---I am doing the snow snow go away dance.
Don't forget to buy tickets for the raffle rug while you are there.
I will probably have to cancel the first week on home classes in March ---but we will see.

I can't believe it is almost the middle of February! The Lenexa Hook-in is not far away and I need to get busy!
I just returned from a Birthday/Anniversary cruise to the Caribbean---what a great time!
This is the view from the rooftop terrace at our hotel in San Juan before we set out to sea.
I loved the double rainbow.
this photo was taken on my 65th Birthday in our rooftop balcony in Old San Juan. We stayed at the Gallery Inn---I would highly recommend it for an unusual stay in Old San Juan.http://www.thegalleryinn.com/
My dapper husband sporting his new straw hat on the balcony on Old San Juan.
The streets in old San Juan are made of this old brick---even bluer in real life. I think I can see a rug in this picture.
This was taken in St. Kitts and the Caribelle batik place---they showed the making of these with wax resist and dyes---I bought a wonderful black and white wrap that I wore a lot on the cruise as a swim cover up, skirt or shawl. Beautiful work! The blue one that I was wrapped in was hanging on the line to dry---it was about a 6 yard piece---kinda wish I had asked it it was for sale.
these are some small baskets made by the Carib Indians in Dominica---made fro L'arouma reeds---supposedly they bury the reeds in the soil to turn them different colors. I wish I had bought some larger ones. The nutmeg in the open basket was from Grenada. I think I need to make an egg custard pie and sprinkle it with the nutmeg. They also used the nutmeg on a lot of the Caribbean rum drinks---not a bad idea either!
This is where I got to on Sailcloth primitive before I left on my trip---I am considering adding about three rows of the darker brown outside the border and then binding it in the same dark brown fabric.
I bought tickets today to fly to California to help host my daughter's baby show in April---looking forward to it. I plan to take two extra suitcase to get some wool to California for the workshop in Cambria in June---friend Kelly is going too so that is two more bags! Yeah!!!!
Well I best get to work getting ready for home classes next week and the Lenexa Hook-in!!!
