Random Thoughts on Thursday

1:28 PM

On Monday I finally got some of my garden planted.  All of the cool weather seeds are in the ground.  A month or so after I normally plant them, but in the ground.  
And just before the rain this week.  Rain.  Not snow!  Although the mountains are getting snow.   In the ground are radishes (french breakfast and some white icicle), lettuce, spinach, kale, carrots and beets.  The rule of thumb here is to plant the warm weather crops after mothers day.  I'll probably wait to plant them for a couple of weeks.  It's still frosty in the mornings.

Tuesday was shoulder surgery.  All went well.  Even better, my rotator cuff did not need to be re-attached so the time my arm will be in a sling is minimal.  The Dr. filed down the bone spur and cleaned up the cuff.  Now begins the most intensive six weeks of physical therapy.  I had lost a lot of range of motion, so we will begin to get that back.  Not looking forward to it.   I'm kind of still in my happy place right now, you know, better living through chemistry!
