It’s been a spring one day, winter the next kind of week. Here are some high points from it:
1. Jim progressing well after surgery. He went from walking around our cul-de-sac and worked up to walking a mile and a half, drove for the first time Wednesday, attended prayer meeting, and went back to work for partial days yesterday and today. He still has a “punched in the stomach” feeling and has trouble getting comfortable in order to sleep at night, but overall he’s doing nicely. Thank you again for praying.
2. A break from cooking. I mentioned last week that my son and daughter-in-law made up a few meals for us while Jim was in the hospital, and Saturday our pastor’s wife made dinner for us. Between that and the leftovers and a few fast-food forays, I didn’t cook from Wednesday through Sunday, except for tossing things in the oven or microwave and making a salad. I enjoyed the time off from the kitchen.
3. Celebrating Mittu’s birthday. It was a little late, as her birthday was the same day as the surgery, but it was fun celebrating on Saturday. She requested mini cheesecakes instead of a cake, and it was fun to experiment with those.
4. Daffodils are sprouting around the neighborhood, a sure and cheery sign that spring is on the way!
5. Visiting Jim’s mom together. Since Jim couldn’t drive for several days, I drove him over to see his mom at the skilled nursing facility. Usually either he goes after work or I go during the day, so it was nice to go together. Plus we ran into our assistant pastor there one day and had a nice visit.
Hope you have a great weekend!
