My knee was actually pretty good this morning. I woke up in the middle of the night and when I walked to the bathroom I thought my knee would give out since it hurt to put weight on it, but this morning it was great. So wonderful! My hand hurt more as the scrapped area is on the upper palm and I seem to use that part a lot. It's always what gets hurt that we use a lot, how is that? It still had some bits of grit in it that hurt too much to dig out last night, even after I took a shower, but after I did dishes this morning it was all nice and clean.

I've had a low grade headache all day though which happens when I really push myself physically. Even though I made sure I was hydrated and made sure I had plenty of protein and carbs to replenish my body I still got it, as usual. I didn't help it any by riding my bike downtown in 100+ heat but I was so frustrated with the sunday bus schedule.

M & K and friends are opening a cafe where Cafe Quebec was (and before that Care Ole). It was filthy and there is so much work to do. I helped scrape and spackle (love that word) and sweep up the scrappings but I only spent a couple hours and they've been there all weekend, and it's hot. I wish them the best of luck.

At M3M tonight the Reverend mentioned that one thing we were learning there was how to get in touch with out bodies. I thought of falling yesterday and realized that I always tripped when I wasn't paying attention to my body. The problem is that you can't pay attention all the time so I need a body that pays attention to itself.
