Road Trip to Stanley, ID

We have had two of Larry's sons from AZ visiting with us so Sunday afternoon we took a road trip to Stanley, ID where we had a lovely supper  at the Sawtooth Hotel (yum!) and then drove over to one of my all time favorite places - Red Fish Lake.  It was very different seeing it this time of year as compared to later summer which is when I had visited in the past.  No lush green vegetation growing everywhere, but also no mosquitoes and no crowds.  We had the entire shoreline to ourselves.   It was really quite lovely.  

Uh Oh

There is a reason I have not been posting anything lately:

Three weeks ago, while on a trip to Seattle for work meetings, I fell and broke a bone in my right hand.  I've had it in a cast and am having to learn to get by with only using my very NON-dominant left hand.  It has been a struggle.

Yesterday I had my original plaster cast removed and now am wearing a special sort of hard plastic cast that laces up tight.  I  can remove it for an hour or so each evening and do a few exercises to get movement back into my hand.

I will do this for about another three weeks and then we'll re-evaluate how the healing process is progressing.  Hopefully with some physical therapy I will get back full strength and range of motion.

For now, I'm learning lessons about patience, accepting my limitations and asking for help--none of which come easy for me.

So it goes.
