Popsicle Garland

Last week I had some minor surgery on my knee, but recovering will take quite some time, the physical therapist told me yesterday. I'm not allowed to walk for six weeks on the leg that was operated, and after that there will follow another six weeks in which I'm allowed to put just 50% of my weight on it. I was a bit upset after this news had reached me, because I thought I would be back at work in just four weeks. But as an OR-nurse, walking, standing, lifting, tilting, bending, turning and other such things doing all the time, working is out of the question. 

But: always look on the bright side! Twelve weeks of reading!! Finally time to go through all those books piled up beside my bed!

And I make some things for my daughters. Like this:
