Bruise & juice

No more news on the bruise. It is no longer expanding and looks a lot less scary. Maybe it was the cortisone shot that hit a vein. I am still waiting for the other cortisone shot to have an effect. My ankle has not been very painful, the result of not going for walks. Today I tried a short walk and had to turn home after 10 minutes. I am glad I made an appointment with the top ankle doc at MGH because I need some advice on what is possible. The thought of not being able to go for walks anymore is very depressing.

Today there was an electrical problem in Manchester and we were left without the juice for a good part of the day. It is a startling experience to realize how much of our daily life requires electricity. Without email and internet I was finally able to get some reading done until I needed to check something out on the internet.

That’s when I headed for the public library which has wireless internet access, electrical outlets to plug in and most importantly, electricity. I was not the only one who used the library as a stand-in office.

In burst of serious reading I explored the idea of bookmark stacks on and then of course got lost in other people’s stacks, in particular one on food and recipes.

Axel picked me up and we drove to Gloucester to get some fresh fish. When we returned home the electricity was still off and so the meal we had planned could not be cooked on our (electric) stove; reason to eat out. We invited Woody to join us and found ourselves eating outside in the late afternoon sun with a terrace heater keeping us warm.
