Something Rotten

Thank you Sarah and Terri for inviting me! At the Music Circus:

Terri, me, Dawn (Sarah’s MIL), Sarah:

Confession: I have said for many years, “I don’t like musicals” and decline all invitations. It’s just not a genre I … well … anyway, I really enjoyed both this musical and previously, Kinky Boots. I have changed my mind.

Week 3

On Monday, the x-rays turned out good enough to have my cast reduced on Tuesday to below the elbow. Ahhh.

The tea cups jigsaw puzzle was completed and I’m on book 4 in the series:

The best part. I rode 6 days, 49 miles.

Huge thanks to Ray who loaned me his recumbent trike to ride while I rehab.

Week 2

Another week in the over-elbow cast, sigh. Another book finished, another jigsaw puzzle nearly complete.

Carson and Avery came over. We visited Swainson’s Hawk Park and went “Grandma shopping” – their term for going to Target for something special when Sophia is away at camp.

And a surprise. Ray loaned me his recumbent trike. I am back on a bike!

Week 1

On Tuesday I got an over-the-elbow cast which included 2 minutes of bone realignment when the orthopedist squeezed my wrist with both hands (excruciating pain). Beyond that, learning to live using only my left non-dominant hand has been interesting and acrobatic. Besides riding a bike, I enjoy cooking and sewing, neither of which are possible now. I discovered DoorDash – a steak salad from Jack’s Urban Eats on my doorstep 15 minutes after placing my order! I can drive – nothing was going to keep me from getting a much-needed hair cut. On Thursday, left-handed, I did pretty good throwing a small football into the basket. Carson and I played many 5-point games, the basket migrated to many locations including halfway under the bench.

Adrienne gave me the first two books in a series by CJ Box. She can’t put them down. Sophia suggested doing one of the many jigsaw puzzles I have in a cabinet.

Five weeks to go.
