Left Right Left

" I left my wife and forty-nine kids and an old grey mare and a peanut stand when I joined the army did I do right?  Right to my country hay foot straw foot skip by jiminy left,  left!" 

Just remembering a little song my dad would sing to us!  It has nothing to do with the fact that I am going to have my LEFT knee replaced on Monday, August 13th.  My right knee was replaced on April 16th and I am so happy with its job!  I have some numbness still in some places and occasional pain but I am told that this is usual and I am not bothered by that at  all!  I know that all the advice about working hard at PT has paid off.  I have continued my exercises too and am ready to start again.  If you are reading this I ask for your prayers!  I believe in the power of prayer.  I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to do this and am looking forward to being able to walk like a "regular" person once again!  

It has been a beautiful summer here in the UP.  Bob and Andrew's gardens are wild with growth!  We are enjoying fresh cukes, great greens in our salads, some cherry tomatoes, and a few zucchini.  Andrew made me an awesome Basil Vinigrette with some of his fresh basil.  Wonderful.  There are so many things yet to come!  Oh and we had some marvelous sugar snap peas!  Looks like we will have corn this year too!  A treat!

Matt is here from California for a visit.  It is so great to have him here and we are enjoying laughing and catching up.  He has been fasting for spiritual purposes and Andrew has been fasting for physical purposes so we have not had to fuss about what to cook! ha.  Andrew has been juicing so they are both drinking veggies/fruit!  Stranger things have happened!
