Six Weeks!


I made it to the six week point post-Surgery #12.

Six weeks is a milestone after an orthopedic surgery, and I’m glad it’s finally arrived.

(Not a whole lot of six week changes happen for me this time around, but it’s a milestone nonetheless.)

My surgeon has given me very strict orders for the time being, so my life will continue to be slow paced for awhile.

He thinks it will be May before I can return to (job-like) shooting which is pretty much what I expected.

This is what it looks like when I try to use my iPhone as a camera operated with just my left hand:


Surreal selfie?  

So yep, not a lot of shooting going on for awhile.

But, it’s been a busy week ….

A rainy day in L.A. to see the doc, a day at PT, a day of being “rained in” with two soaking wet giant Newfies …..

During which time I sketched, painted, and tried to complete a few lessons from one of my art classes.

I’ve been waiting on a delivery all week too.

For three days in a row, I’ve been notified a delivery (which needs to be signed for) is “out for delivery.”

The first notification came on Monday when I was in L.A., and I was bummed I’d miss it.

But, now it’s Thursday and the “out for delivery” package STILL hasn’t shown up.

I guess I’ll have to put a trace on it if it doesn’t arrive by this afternoon.

I was planning to write two posts about the items being delivered, but the package hasn’t arrived so ….

That’s why I’ve been quiet this week.

Every day, I’ve been telling myself to “give it one more day to arrive” so I could share it with you.

This week, I ordered this tank top (except I ordered it in black):

Nevertheless She Persisted tank top.

I purchased it, not just for its relevance to this week’s political mess,

But also because this statement could be/should be my life motto.

(Especially for the last ten and a half years, right?)

It’s available as a t-shirt also, but I wear a lot of tank tops …

They rub less on my very sensitive scars.

I hope to be back tomorrow to share news/photos about my missing package.

It’s a girly item … just warning you!

Fingers crossed it isn’t forever lost!

    Love the surreal photo. Looks like it could be added to your art journal!
    And the tank top – very nice. I think I could use that too – though maybe in a t-shirt.
    And wet Newfies! I guess there were a lot of towels around. 🙂

    Thanks for the link to the shirt. I just ordered a regular tee. So glad you’ve hit your milestone. Holy cow, we have been in back to back heavy rain storms and it has us all sidelined. Take care.
