Body Maintenance and Baby Lemons

Parts wear out and have to be replaced or maintained, and it is necessary though not always convenient to take time out to get work done. I'm going to have carpal tunnel surgery in a couple of days and will be in a splint for a week, so I'm trying to get all my two-handed activities done. Hmmm...nearly everything is a two-handed activity--computer work, sewing, quilting, organizing fabric shelves, driving, taking care of the kitties.
I am trying to finish the quilting on one of my show entries, and doing it with a cat on my lap or, worse yet, on the quilt, really slows the progress.
Tarbaby insists on being in my lap when I'm at the computer. His body is longer than my thighs, and he likes to hang his head off between my knees, knowing that I won't let him fall. Of course, this takes at least one hand off the keyboard.
My new Meyer lemon tree has 13 baby lemons on it! Last winter's freeze killed my other tree and this one has only been planted a couple of months--I'm thrilled.
As if this were not enough excitement, I finally lost my one remaining baby tooth today. Not surprising, since other original parts are wearing out!

An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you should publish more about this
topic, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people don't talk
about these topics. To the next! Many thanks!!

Tarbaby's next most favorite place is up on my shoulder. Shoulder or lap--he slows the progress but is so lovable and entertaining that the progress can wait. Our pets certainly have us where they want us.
