We had a visitor today! Came from the woods + looked lost. Muskrat.
1st time, since we moved here in 1977, that we've had a deer in our yard in the summer! In the horrible winter of 96-97 (with the piles of snow up to the 2nd story of the house ), we had a couple starving deer eating our cedar trees. We haven't had a dog since last July....maybe that's why the deer are so brave now.
Gary is hoping this will happen to me...
Thank you Uncle Frank Schledorn + Uncle Russell Ruppert + all who valiantly served our country!
FINALLY got Gary to put up my garden "headboard" fence! My Mother's Day present after 2 years of waiting....😉
Practicing around the house in the sandals I'm wearing to Chris + Emily's wedding May 18th. I haven't worn Any type of a heel or wedge for YEARS! If you aee me stagger, it's because of the shoes.....NOT the prosecco😉🥂🍾
Never fails! Every Spring, another broken water pipe at the cabin. Thanks Dan Brogard Plumbing!!
Docks in + water on at the cabin. THANKS Don, Riley + Gary!!!
The dock literally rolled right it...all Gary had to do was stop it at the correct place.
Happy Birthday to my baby! We are so proud of all you have achieved in 35 years! Always keep that smile😘😘
Havong a neighborhood bonfire at Scott Anderson + Joyce Larsons. Yea! No mosquitoes!
OMG!! This is terrible!
Wednesday Gary saw a bluebird at our waterer, but couldn't get a pic until today (in spite of the blizzard ). We have a couple of robins too.
Can be out of the boot part time starting today to practice walking correctly + doing stairs. My heel bone took quite a beating in this surgery + is still pretty tender. A bit of swelling on the inside of my foot + ankle needs to subside also. Starting PT the day after tomorrow. Still have the goal of dancing at Chris + Emily's wedding May 18th!
I thought it was April SHOWERS that brought May flowers????? I am NOT shoveling!
I've been liberated from my cast, the knee scooter + the no weight bearing rules!!! Now a boot for 3 weeks that I can take off to shower or at night.🤗 Today begins my slowly starting to walk + do stairs. Some PT too. Gotta get built up for Chris + Emily's wedding💘💑
Happy St Patrick's Day!
My shelling partner + friend Dorie Koppelman made me these spectacular pillow cases to keep me dreaming of the beach during my recovery 😘😘😘 Thanks Dorie!!
One week out from surgery. Went to my Dr. Tuesday, got this cool blue cast (still non weight bearing ) + got a good look at my heel. Spectacular shades of dark purple with about 5" of Frankenstein black stitches. 2 more weeks, then stitches out + possibly a boot for walking...did I tell you what a love/hate relationship I have with my scooter?😬🙄🤨
Happily home to fight dry mouth + master the knee scooter. Keeping ankle elevated big time to minimize swelling + ice behind knee for 15 min every hour for pain. Some very nice pain pills too😉 My son Chris is driving up tonight to stay until Gary gets home. He can work remotely with our wifi.His boss is a great guy! My surgeon has a smiley face habit....my toes are waving to you all😏👋
Home again jiggity jog!. Dry mouth is awful! Finally lunch + help with dry mouth in Biotene mouth wash😋
Trying to absorb Cohen's testimony with my Diet Coke + caramel roll ......surreal!
