A Flicker Feeding in Front

Jim had total knee replacement surgery on his left knee yesterday (Tuesday, 9/29/20).  The build-up to this is part of the numerous disruptions over the last several weeks.

As you may have gathered, Jim’s not only my husband and best friend, since his retirement and, even more, since Covid-19 shutdowns, he’s taken over all the errands.

Now it’s my turn, as well as taking over everything he does around the house–which is a lot.

So, if I’m a bit slow responding to Comments or e-mails, this is why.  First priority will be taking care of him and keeping the household running, second will be writing.

The picture, by the way, is of a flicker (which is a sort of woodpecker) on the brand new bird block we got so Jim could bird watch while he’s not able to move around as much.  At the rate the flicker is going (as well as the other birds), we may need another really soon!

    That is a beautiful bird! Birdwatching is a good pastime for someone recovering from surgery!
    I’m sure the birds would appreciate you keeping their new diner well stocked.

    Best wishes for a smooth recovery for Jim and no major issues for you! It’s difficult to care for someone and to have more responsibility added on top of that. I hope you’re able to get the breaks you need.

    I hope he recovers quickly. I’m told by those that have had the procedure the post-operative exercises are imperative. Be well, Jane.

    SIDE NOTE: As if my life isn’t crazy enough, WordPress is giving me trouble. I’ll post the FF when I can figure out what’s going on.
