That is not a description anyone would attach to me, in a general sense. I use it as a post title because after just more than a month, I feel like my life is getting somewhat back to normal after the total knee replacement on 6/23/2021. Today I drove for the first time. I rode my recumbent bike for 15 whole minutes to loosen up my range of motion. I can sort of go up and down the stairs with both legs (if I am not too tired) and I can walk indoors with a slightly shorter and slower stride without my cane. Week five brings confidence that I will make it through. Put in a broader perspective, the amount of time I can walk and be on my feet is now longer than it was two months before the knee replacement!
Over the past few days, I have been slowly returning my art supplies to my desk. Bedside art on the walker tray with wet media was proving difficult.
Here is how that big dump looked on my desk, happy to say it’s all tidy now.
So expect some real amateur art to show up here soon!
In the meantime, I am enjoying visits from my local friends, who sometimes are here to feast on our vegetation long after the sun rises. The doe by the house was probably a yearling with no fawns, and the two fawns are sometimes led over here by the tame doe Charlotte who lives at the nature center across the way.
