No Neeldlework for me for a bit

Saturday night my right thumb started hurting. I'm not totally sure of the cause but I think I may have tendonitis. I made the dumb mistake of knitting during the church business meeting last night (ibuprofen made it feel too good) and it was really hurting after that. So I'm on a self-imposed break from all needlework for two weeks. We'll see if that doesn't do the job and let things heal up.

On other fronts: our hot water heater is acting. I had a tepid shower this morning with the dial set all the way to hot (which I never do since I don't like hot, hot showers). J went down to check the water heater and the pilot light won't stay lit. Trying to get a call into the plumber to see if they can fix it; it's only four years old, so this is irritating.
