Tomorrow for brunch we are getting together with a couple, who have been away all winter in Mexico. They arrived back home a few weeks ago. We're going to meet them at a local breakfast/lunch restaurant.
Otherwise, our children or some of them will probably be here on Sunday for the usual family dinner. Today the weather is wonderful...sunny and warm at close to 20 C. The weekend weather is predicted to be less warm, though not bad, and maybe some cloud mixed with sun. Outside of what's mentioned, I can't say I have a lot on the agenda mainly due to knee pain that I have and have had for a few weeks now. My rheumatologist doesn't seem to know what this is from - the source of the problem. There may be some swelling around both my knees. Externally, they don't quite look normal (though the swelling isn't extreme) and they certainly are painful, although my rheumatologist doctor said they 'feel' normal from his examination of them - although he did wonder if there was some swelling going on. But it's not suspected to be osteoarthritis as my last X-rays didn't show any signs of that (in December). However, I've just had another set of X-rays done on my knees and the results are being sent to my rheumatologist come early next week. He just wants to be sure nothing has changed since then. Since X-rays only show bone - if the pain is from some other source, the X-rays won't show what that is.
Anyway the point being that I can't do a whole lot of moving around (walking/standing) with this pain. So not much I am going to be doing this weekend. What a bore! Ray has yard work, a plumbing repair to do for the kitchen sink and something else he mentioned, which I can't remember now. I wish I could help him with the yard work. (Mostly raking old leaves from last fall that got too soon covered in snow in October!). Unless this pain ends, I just can't see myself doing that sort of work.
I hope other people here are going to be having a more interesting and/or active and enjoyable weekend than I may be having!
