Anyone who knows me, knows I love baseball. The really convenient thing about this is that I live in baseball heaven with two teams to choose from, The Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants! Growing up in Oakland, I’ve witnessed some of the finest baseball in history over the years.
Which team is my favorite you ask? Hmm…well, I would say I love them both equally. AT&T Park where the Giants play is a gorgeous facility. The fans are awesome and it’s really a treat to go. (Oh! That reminds me, we have tickets to the Giants vs. Dodgers on Thursday, lol.) But Oakland is my hometown, so I have a huge soft spot for the A’s.
Yesterday my hubby and I wanted to go to the game and we wondered which one we should go to. We decided on Sunday and we are so glad we did because today is the day the A’s could clinch their division! Their magic number is ‘1’! Needless to say I’m a happy camper!
I’m even more of a happy camper because yesterday I fell on my knee replacement. Fortunately, it happened inside our house just inside the door on an area rug. We had an unusual heavy rain (it rarely rains in California at this time) and I took off my shoes just inside the door and forgot they were there and tripped on them shortly after. Ugh! My knee hurt and it was a bit swollen but today it seems I’m fine again. I did worry a bit because it hurt like $%^&!!! But now I seem to be back to normal and I’m walking fine. 😀 Thank god because I don’t want to miss this game! LOL! I have my priorities. 🙂
As all of you know, I’ve been blogging about my knee since before my surgery on December 11, 2012. While it’s not 100% yet, I’m confident that by the time one year has passed, it will be.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how to refocus my blog and you might’ve been feeling that I’m covering a lot of photography here as well. That’s because I can finally get up and around enjoy life again!
While I still will be updating my knee as promised for an entire year, I’ve decided to also include snippets of my life and hoping to reflect those things in my photos. The word “life” is so broad and can mean many things from vacations to inner reflections to health-related awareness, etc.
For starters, yesterday we went on the AT&T Park Tour as described in yesterday’s blog, but here are some more pics from that fun time. And yes, the peppers were there!
