Days off are important….


I really needed a few days off from pushing my knee.  With all the working out and walking around with my camera club, my knee has spoken.  Yesterday I rested and it really felt great!  Elevation and ice are my remedy when I’m feeling more sore than usual.  What I’ve noticed is that I can push it more these days until it gets sore, which is good news.  I keep hearing in the back of my mind, my in-home physical therapist in the very beginning saying, “In a year, you won’t remember which one you had replaced!”  If I don’t look that is, lol.  I’m looking forward to that day!

In the meantime, I think I filled you all in on our upcoming Alaska trip.  Well, we are really going to have a good time.  We have some excursions that are mind blowing!  One is in a helicopter where the pilot chooses the best two places that day where we can walk on the glaciers.  The reviews of this excursion are all five stars and I’m sure it will be stunning. The second is a 4×4 excursion into the forest.  They say you will get muddy, lol.  I can’t wait!!!  It’s salmon spawning that time of year, so we have a good chance of seeing bears in this location.  I won’t be disappointed if we don’t, though…how can you go wrong with four wheeling in mud in Alaska!?

The last thing we are doing is going on one of the Deadliest Catch boats.  You know, that American TV show (that my husband is addicted to).  It’s to see the life of a crab fisherman.  I don’t even know if that’s the term as I’m usually watching The Bachelorette at that time LOL.  😉   This is another five star review and I think there are lots of bald eagles around which should be good for me and my camera.  🙂

Today is the SF Giants.  The poor Giants are not doing well so far this season.  They’ve been riddled with injuries but we are still rooting for them!  Go Giants!

  1. I am sure you will have a great time on your trip! Glad your knee is feeling better! I always say good days bad days but hopefully there will be more good than bad!

  2. Yep it is part of the deal but really I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I did this did you?
