Quiet Life

Apache Junction, AZ  High 78  Low 51

We’ve been keeping a low profile, letting Jim recuperate. He spends a lot of time with his leg up.

Of course he has to have company.

We bought the girls a new doggie bed because we thought it might be nice for them to lay on outside. But they still prefer the hot rocks. They do like laying on it in the house though.

What’s really great is the fact that Jim is able to walk. We’ve been walking around a few blocks in the park a couple of times a day and he doesn’t have any leg pain. For the first time in years and years. It’s going to take awhile to build his stamina but that’s okay.

On Sunday we picked up Dianna and headed down to Casa Grande to Bill and Jan’s house. They invited about 20 people over for dinner and socializing. I took my camera and then forgot to take any pictures. What a lot of fun we had. And it felt so good to get out of the house for something besides just shopping or doctor appointments.

Tomorrow night we’re going to the AZ Opry. Let the fun times roll.

  6. So Jim has to fight for some couch time? I guess we know who is boss(es) around your RV... ;c)

  7. You can come over here and put a leg up on our couch any time you want too! The girls could come too if we can get them to get along with Biscuit... That might need to go slow for a while.... Give us a call..

  16. Great news on Jim's leg. Glad to hear he has no pain now. The doxies get their share of the couch (or bed or chair, lol) first don't they? Same thing happens here.

  17. Happy to hear from you two....and so very happy that Jim no longer has the pain in his leg.
    I'm going to have to get out and walk too...our neighbors, Jill and Ross Powell come over and take Sunshine for a walk/run/whatever with their little black lab once or twice a week...but Bill and I were used to going every day..up the Rims.....NOT GOOD WITH ALL THIS SITTING AROUND!!!!
    The opera sounds good. I like the little Christmas Tree ornament on fb.
    Love, Carol

  22. Jim seems to be doing very well, but I think he's smart to take it easy for a while longer. I know what you mean about just going out for shopping & doctors' appointments - it's nice to just socialize once in a while.

  23. Our pets have a way of wanting to be near us when we are on our recliner too. Glad to see Jim is doing better, walking has sure helped Bob in his recovery.
