except taking photos,
enjoying visits from my grandkids and their folks,
doing a little sight-seeing from Lake Superior's shoreline,
to the north fork of the Flambeau...
taking walks down the cabin roads,
and picking veggies and zinnias from my garden, ~
and finally helping make my first 2 gallon jar of
Garlic Dill Pickles, Green Beans, and Carrots...
anything, I say, ANYTHING, I could manage with one hand ~
~ while ~
I apologize if these photos make you squeamish but you don't know how wonderful this looks to me. Finally, I can feel my fingers again and use my left hand. I'm a ' lefty ' so it's even a bigger thrill. This is the result of carpo-tunnel repair of the first surgery from over 20 yrs. ago. I'm as tickled pink for the success as my hand is as it regains use. Now, to get the swelling down a bit more so I can put my wedding band back on...I miss it.
I missed you all but now I can type with both hands again. You still won't see me often this time of the year, however, as the garden is beginning to bounce back from the hail damage and I have vegetables to process. I'm still reading your entries but also not writing quite so much just yet.
Thank you all for hanging in there with me and commenting in spite of my lack of appearing anywhere. You're good folks.
