A Very Good Day

I figured out how to get myself to the fiber shed independently today.  What an accomplishment.  Unfortunately, after I was there almost a half hour, I remembered I had left eggs on the stove to hard boil.  John wasn't in hearing distance so I had to get myself back to the house.  Not as easy going back. I ended up taking the wheel chair up the ramp, parking it at the top of the ramp, hopping to the door, crawling to the inside step, grabbing the crutches, and getting to the stove BEFORE the water had completely evaporated.  Fortunately, about that time, John came along and brought the wheelchair inside.

That was a workout, and then I rested a bit.  Tomorrow, I will figure out the return trip better.

Later in the day, my great, wonderful, husband took me out to lunch AND took me on a hike in the National Forrest.  The trail was pretty good but rutty and rooty in a few spots.  It reminded me of when we used to take Wednesday on trails, but she didn't weigh as much and she had better tires.  We went to the Roaring Run and it was certainly running and roaring.  We have had SO MUCH rain and some flooding and washing.

My ankle is definitely getting better and now I can start a few projects.  Tomorrow, I will also try a crawling expedition.  Eventually, I will figure out how to get to the barnyard gate every day.


  1. I hope you're back climbing over everything soon.

  2. That DOES sound like a wonderful day. The egg thing sounds like me. I'm forever doing stuff like that. Kudos to John for taking you on a hike. What a guy.
