Monday, October 9: Another day of staying home and doing wound care. Happy to be feeling a bit better each day but still sad at all the things I’d planned to do that won’t be happening. The only photos I took were not fit for posting, being gross wound progress shots, but I did color this pretty picture in my Happy Color app.
Tuesday, October 10: Still not feeling up to doing much, but did spot this seasonal transition when I went to get the mail.
Wednesday, October 11: Went down to town for a doctor’s appointment (check up on my progress, plus I got a flu shot because it’s time) and saw this lovely display of fall color. The nurse practitioner was pleased with my progress, so I just need to keep doing what I’m doing (including taking the antibiotics for an additional week).
Thursday, October 12: When I stopped at the store the day before to pick up my prescription, I picked up a few groceries as well. Saw this new limited edition Y3000 Coke Zero and decided I needed it as a treat. The “futuristic flavor” is sweet and fruity. I was hoping for something with more bite to it, but I guess I’m not the main target consumer for soda pop.
Friday, October 13: When I went down to get the mail, I saw that the chairs were up on the new lift.
Saturday, October 14: Mr. Karen arrived home after his solo portion of the trip we started together a month earlier. The mountain greeting him with this autumnal view.
Sunday, October 15: Felt well enough to take a short walk with Mr. Karen. We poked around the village a bit, noticing the snow guns had been put in place and work was continuing on the top terminal of the new lift. They were running the new lift very slowly, too, and the lake was out for our viewing pleasure as we looked down the lift line.
