Everyone who knows me knows quilting is the hobby I’m most passionate about…followed by beading, scrapbooking, geneaology research and cooking. All these activities require the use of 2 hands, holding/lifting things and good motor coordination. Right now, that’s all beyond my reach. I haven’t been able to use both arms/hands for nearly 2 months.
It’s a blessing that I’m left handed and that I’m able to read, type (slowly), and feed myself, lol. I will have to say that the only reading I’m doing is the scriptures. I’m listening to audio books for the long drives to DR offices.
A few hours each day are spent in Cafe World trying to acheive higher levels than my co-workers, lol. I’ve acumulated enough points to redecorate my cafe, so that will be my evening entertainment when I can’t sleep.
More of my computer time is spent in EQ7…playing, designing and trying new things. What a great program! It’s much quicker than the old pencil and graph paper days. Usually. There are so many things I don’t know about the program yet…and when I hit those areas, it’s easier for me to grab pencil and paper than to fight the book 1 handed to read and learn.
The rest of my computer time is spent working on the family trees in Ancestry.com. That’s slow going and I can’t drag my big notebooks around, so not making great leaps and bounds.
There you have it…my list of what to do when you are unable to use 2 hands. I’m looking forward to the day when my posts and photos are once again of finished quilts, necklaces or scrapbook pages!
