Flowers, Brand New Hip and Snow!

02 Feb

1    A lovely friend called by yesterday when I was resting and left these beautiful bright flowers on the doorstep and with them a card of our local hotel, a photo dated 1780!

2   Maybe not for the squeamish but here is an x-ray of my wonderful new hip. I saw the surgeon today and he is delighted with my progress and that I have been doing all my exercises so well!

3   We have been waiting for snow and this afternoon had a snowstorm! It lasted about 10 minutes and ten minutes after that it has all gone though we could still see a dusting on the hills. That could well be our lot for the winter.

      Doesn’t it? The surgeon seemed pleased that I wanted a photo of it and adjusted the screen until I could get a good shot! 🙂

    So great the new hip is working out.

    Be glad that is your lot for snow. The last two days it has been snowing, snowing, snowing…..we can’t even get the back gate open……plus it is -23C outside to boot.

        I guess I keep in mind that it can always be worse. Last year we had a few weeks of -30’s and -40’s…..I remember laughing at myself when I said “It’s warming up, it”s -29!”

    Get well quick Sally and hope you will be hopping with the choir soon enough and taking lovely photos as you do always.

    Not squeamish at all. I am sure this picture of you and your new hip will get a lot of whistles. 🙂
