|John and Norma, his caretaker|
Yesterday we got together for a late breakfast with John, now eleven days post-surgery, and his friend Norma (usually a dance partner), who is taking care of him, feeding him and driving him around. John's left arm has a completely new shoulder and rebuilt rotator cuff. He can't use it very well yet, and as Norma pointed out, he still cannot open the car door by himself. But every day he's making progress, and it was good to finally see him in person. He'll have the staples out and see the doctor this coming Friday, and hopefully can go home by then, or soon after.
|Fall bounty at the Farmers' Market|
On Saturday, I visited the Farmers' Market after a fun walk with three other ladies. It was so nice to see all the wonderful produce and see the well-attended weekly event doing so well. It helped that it wasn't raining, as it had been during the previous two Saturdays.
|More veggies to ogle|
I am also always pleased to see how well my community is functioning during this pandemic, with everyone outdoors wearing masks (they are a mandatory fashion item) and social distancing as well. Almost every store has markers on the floors to help keep people apart. It seems that the coronavirus will be with us for some time to come, even though many of us wish it would hurry up and go away. We are still in Phase 2 of opening, with some counties already in Phase 3.
Our weather has been cooperating, with some rain showers but not every moment of the day. I can seem to find openings for a nice walk to help me close the exercise rings on my new Apple watch. It doesn't let up for a minute.
