I bragged about my knee in last night’s log as I truly thought it was completely recovered from my fall. But not so. I woke up this morning barely able to walk. I guess I pushed it too hard on the stationary bike yesterday. I was just doing what the PT recommended, but obviously my knee wasn’t ready for it. So back to the drawing board on that issue. I hobble along just fine, just very slowly.
I spent the morning and early afternoon at home and then mid-afternoon left to do a series of chores. I delivered more bags of leaves to West Falmouth to be composted. I drove into town to go to the grocery store, return a book, and pick up pizza for dinner for the Goldstones. Then I headed to Heather and Jed’s. Heather was on 4-7 pm fund raising duty, so Jed and I were going to take the boys to the East Falmouth Craft Fair. Jonah had to be there at 5:45 pm, so we ate salad and pizza and headed to the school. Jonah had sold 14 candles during the day when students and teachers visited the fair, so he was excited about that. He and his buddy Kayden had adjoining booths for the second year and it was fun to watch them hawk their wares. Jed and I took turns hanging out with Ollie and then I left a few minutes before the fair ended to drive to Woods Hole to attend the Falmouth Forum. Parking was a bear as tonight’s presentation was obviously of interest to way more people than me! Nantucket author, Nathanial Philbrick, was speaking about his new book, In the Hurricane’s Eye. I am an avid Philbrick fan and have been reading this book for weeks. It is Philbrick’s account of the genius of George Washington in his role as commanding general in the last phase of the American Revolution that was basically fought between England and France. It was a delight to hear Philbrick tell the story tonight.
