2018 Life Logs, Day 340: Potpourri of Activities
Date: Thursday, December 6, 2018
Weather: Mostly Sunny; High 42, Low 32 degrees F
Location: At Home in The Cottage, East Falmouth, MA
Usually my Thursday mornings begin with a class at the gym, but today I avoided exercise to give my knee a rest. I’m still not sure what I did to cause the relapse, but it is truly like going all the way back to the injury on Halloween night. I put the knee brace on today and that helped. With it on, I can walk, even up and down stairs, just slowly. So I will follow the PT exercises I was given when I first fell and work up from there. But at least I am walking!
My day was filled with a potpourri of activities. The high temp today got into the 40’s so it seemed the perfect day to do a little garden clean-up. This should have been done weeks ago, but somehow there was never time. I worked on the deep beds in front of the cottage and then went to Heather’s to do some garden clean-up there. I had to go there anyway as I needed to wash my pajamas to get ready for tonight’s Pajama Storytime at Highfield Hall. Yes, you really do wear your pajamas! Heather had a meeting and could not go, so I volunteered to take Ollie and Jonah. Jonah didn’t want to go without a Heather or Jed and Jed was planning to stay home with Sam. But at the last minute, we worked out a way for Jed and Jonah to go. It was a fun evening and we came home inspired to read more holiday stories and to practice singing all of the verses of Mr. Grinch—very cute. The boys are planning to sing this as part of a Christmas Eve concert for family.
