Between sub-zero temperatures, and massive wind chills that not only subtract from the perceived temperature but also continue to move the snow about, even when it is NOT actually falling, we have had one heck of a weather week.

Also on the needs list was critter feed, which was resupplied as well during the Monday supply runs.
My intrepid visiting nurse did manage to slide in to remove the staples from the left knee, bringing the prospect of a shower into the equation. Unfortunately, I had to wait an extra day due to Tractor Guy's quite understandable fatigue from all of the clearing and hauling he had to do. After two weeks, though, what's one more day and when it finally came, the hair washing and body scrub felt wonderful! With the turning of the season (the tide I call Spring Finding has been lapping at the corners of my mind all week) even I (not fond of showers as I am) enjoyed invoking the spirit of the rains-to-come and the cleansing of body and spirit with the full moon, also this week. I also finally got a visit today from a physical therapist, who says I am showing the kind of range of motion more typically seen at 4 weeks post op. I am closer to 2-2 1/2 wks and both knees seem to be pretty much equal. Woo Hoo!!

I need to secure the sliced jugs with duct tape
but other than that, they are done.
