Yesterday was a 'low energy' day and it looked as though I was barely going to reach 500 steps in the whole day.
I think it was mainly due to the weather; stuffy, humid and oppressive all day. At one point, around lunchtime, there was a massive clap of thunder, like an explosion, which actually made the house shake. I had hopes tgat there would be a proper storm which would clear the air, but the rain, although heavy, stopped abruptly after just a few minutes and it became just as unbearable as before.
I was SO breathless (like the weather!) that I spent a good deal of the afternoon and evening slumped on the settee and using the oxygen concentrator.
So, how come did I suddenly get to over 1000 steps bedtime? Aha! I was knitting some more of the patchwork square blanket (much less demanding than wrangling double pointed needles for sock knitting)
and the ball of yarn lost its structure and shape, threatening to become a cat's cradle of a tangle. I sorted it out and rewound it into a ball, and my wrist action was enough to add 500 steps. I'm enjoying the effect of knitting the squares with multicoloured yarn. The wooden knitting bowl has a groove in the side for the yarn to feed out through it while the ball is free to bibble and bobble around without escaping.
I did manage to doodle a drawing yesterday, and add a few more doodles while looking to see which seeds I could sow in July
