Learning to Walk Again…

 

It’s no small thing!  And I might say, from experience, much easier when you’re a child rather than a….well…..more advanced age.  😉  Quick update:  Since my ankle fusion revision and tendon transfer surgery in January, I’m out of the boot, back in tennis shoes, and working really hard every day to get my heel back down where it should be, and to get this rusty body to adapt to all the changes.  It’s been a long recovery with many months still to go, but I knew that going into it.  But isn’t it funny how it seems so much longer when you’re actually in it?  God is keeping me going, though.  🙂 And for that I am thankful.

Some quotes that amazingly seem to apply to other situations as well.

“If you can’t walk, be the bird.”  ~Lisa Lyons  (but I have to say, I haven’t made it off the ground yet..  haha)

“My leg hasn’t fallen off yet.”  ~Lisa Lyons  (after the “How are you doing?” question and should be said with heavy sarcasm for full effect)

“I walk slowly, but I never walk backward.” ~Abraham Lincoln

Thanks for listening….I appreciate all of my readers, and sincerely pray that you are blessed today.  Slainte, Lisa

 

 

 

 

 

 

Decisions, Decisions

Enough already….just put me in a beach chair with an umbrella, and let it all roll on.

I hereby declare today Non-Decision Day….although technically, that could be considered a decision, but we’ll let that one slide.  heeheehahahoho.  Wow, I better drink another cup of tea….wait, that’s another decision.  I’ll just sit here.  Although that’s a decision.  Oh my, what a snafu.  🙂  Here’s to your Monday!  Lisa

Go Around Me….I’m Sleeping

Here’s a Glencolmcille sheep who has the Tuesday morning thing down well…

And yes, she didn’t move, and yes, we drove around her, being careful to miss these other two who didn’t get up either….

Chilled to the max, or maybe  still exhausted from their big weekend…

Here’s to cloudy Tuesdays!  We’re up, we’re up.  Lisa

The Bus Who Thought He Wasn’t

The bus who thought he wasn’t….a bus.  Corkscrew Hill in County Clare, Ireland, is a challenge even for the small cars that made the hairpin turns up and down the hill.  But the view from the top beckoned, and the tour bus answered the call with boldness.  You will hear Ed & me laughing quietly in the background as we follow the colossus down the hill.  Blessings on your day, Lisa
