Sumac berries

I have not come to grips with the fact that summer is over. My body is reacting in a horrible manner. I woke up with the most excruciating pain in my shoulder the other day. I never take Tylenol or Motrin or any of those things but I have been living on them for the past two days. I don’t know what I did. Other than the usual amount of stress which I won’t go into here. A good friend says it is manifesting in my shoulder because I am shouldering so much responsibility. She makes sense.

I miss my bike rides already. I was going to try and go this weekend but between the pain in my shoulder and the weather forecast, I don’t think that is going to happen.

Saturday is Yom Kippur. I don’t go to temple and I don’t fast. I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I am a bad Jew. I think it was all those years of Hebrew School, Bat Mitzvah training, etc.....I don’t know. For some of us religion just doesn’t stick. I am one of those people. Doesn’t make me a bad person though. I still would love to visit the homeland.

At least it is Thursday. Tomorrow I can sleep in and try to rest a bit. Ethan will be over sometime in the afternoon. Last week it seems I picked him up too early and he couldn’t finish his basketball game. This week we will try to make it a little later and see how that goes. The last thing I want is for him to come to my house and be bored. Better he should stay at the school and play with his friends. I do hope we will have time at least for a piano lesson. I found some interesting early piano books on Amazon. They are similar to the ones I used growing up but a bit more modernized.

Last night my shoulder was too sore for me to do any beading. I did pore over a gorgeous book though. It is one of the Lark 500 Series books called “500 Beaded Objects”. The works are all so different. Each one more inspiring than the next. Between that book and the one called Masters of Beadwork, I have a lot of eye candy to peruse while I am healing.

I'm so sorry you have pain -- I feel barometric pressure changes in my head so I feel for you! I'm opposite in seasons, though -- I love the fall and winter (I should really live in Maine!).
