Photo Finish Friday: Dawn patrol

Yes, I was up in time for the sunrise! This must have been the day of my surgery and here it is just over a month later and I feel so much better! Of course, the dawn is that much later, so it is not a problem seeing it now :)

Have a great weekend all!

Photo Finish Friday: Baby

We went out to Elk Island Park again before my surgery and found this lovely pair in the paddock.

Have a good weekend all.

Photo Finish Friday: drive-by shooting

I liked how this tower looked in the dusk.

Have a good weekend all.

Giving Thanks

It is Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend as most of you know.

This year I have plenty to be thankful for.  I am thankful the someone figured out how to replace bad hips; that I live in Canada and didn't have to come up with thousands of dollars to pay for a hip replacement. I am glad I chose to live in a city that has a new state of the art facility for hip & knee replacement - even though it is on the other side of the city, I didn't have to travel from another city to get here.

I am glad I have friends that were willing to give me a place in their home (and even give up their bed) so I could get a bit stronger before being on my own. They are being so good to me, they are even taking my laundry to their house to do it for me and still helping me in the shower. I don't know how you ever repay that much kindness, but, I intend to try my best. Neither of them want their names plastered on the internet, so I will leave it at that.

I am healing quickly and feeling like I could take on the world! Of course, I will wait the specified healing time of 6 weeks before trying anything stupid, like walking without the walker or the crutches! Lord knows I do not want to have another surgery on the same hip because of something I did.

That is what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving. Well, that and breathing and having a roof over my head and the usual list :)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
