I was off bright and early to see the chiro yesterday morning. I love this guy (well - sort of!). He's not the kind that gets his patients in line and makes a quick adjustment, and you're gone. Oh no - I hardly get any adjustments - he's working on my tight muscles. Since he has released some of the pressure in my low back, my knee is so much better. However, he played around with my knee yesterday, and did you know how many muscles there are in your knee? And did anyone ever manipulate those muscles? Let's say it wasn't fun!
Then he worked on my low back for a wee bit. This morning, I feel like a freight train hit me. Well - it's not totally related to the chiro visit. But all is good. And now I need to do those exercises every day!! They do help, and my back and knee feel very happy once I've done them.
Anyway-- all is good in that department, and I'm able to walk so much better. But holy - hip flexors, knee muscles - I have no idea what they are all called - they are all tight! No need to stop walking - just need to stretch a wee bit more.
I got quite a bit done yesterday - it was a cool day, so there was no danger of sitting out in the gazebo.
Oh, before I get to the sewing, here's my backpack. I had dug it out for the hike last weekend. Orange, of course!

Now who in their right mind would carry all these little shoes on their backpack? But they are so cute!! I'm not even sure where I picked them all up, but they are darn cute, and they don't weigh much, so they're staying on the backpack.
