I paddled with the Silvermasters for the first time this season. It went better than I had expected; I was paddling on the left side, since that will be easier on the incision right now. I was a bit clumsy on that side last year, and that hasn't changed :)

I've also started work on a jacket that I'm making. Since I have all this time off, I thought that I would do some sewing. To make it more interesting, I'm trying to sew things that I've never done before. The jacket I'm trying out has a standard jacket collar and it has piping; I've never sewn either of those before. I'm working with a seersucker fabric. I got the pattern from the Burda pattern magazine - Ian had given me a subscription to the magazine for my birthday a couple of years ago. The magazine means that I rarely, if ever, need to buy patterns.

I also found out today that the abdominal ultrasound hasn't been ordered yet. I called because I'd have thought that I would have received an appointment booking. While I'm sure that the care I'm receiving is good, I'm concerned that I'm somehow falling through the cracks a bit. I'm sure it'll all get straightened out once I see the oncologist that I'll be seeing permanently.
