Today Janet has a guest blogger- me!
My name is Linda and I am a novice quilter who avidly reads Janet`s blog just to find out what she`s doing. I aspire to do some of the projects that she rattles off so easily, but I have not yet developed the skills.
So why is Janet not here you might ask. She has not been in tip top shape for quite some time and finally saw a doctor who diagnosed a concussion. So she is on ``bedrest`` or very quiet time until things start to improve. This includes no brain stimulation for a few days. No sewing, computers, television, or reading. Just rest.
For those of you who are not aware, concussion is very much in the news these days as it relates to sports injuries. What we forget is that it can happen to anyone. That smack on the head from opening a door or falling down or walking into something can cause the same kind of damage as a sports injury.
Usually you just have a bit of a headache and perhaps some slight nausea. The problem is in ignoring the headache, nausea, fatigue, and developing dizziness thinking that you have a touch of the ``flu`` when you really have a concussion. So keep that in mind the next time you bang your head against the wall due to snafu with your latest quilting project. Always follow-up with your doctor if symptoms persist for more than a few days.
Janet should be back soon so lets all wish her well.
My first effort at posting a picture. The resident squirrel chases the birds while competing for seeds.
This is a Red Crossbill it is a rarity for Carcross as our usual feathered friends of this genre is the White-Winged Crossbill.
