Woke up to sprinkles and 60+ degrees.
Fine with me.
No masks. No sweat....
After chores I took a shower and was off to Orthopaedic Associates of Rochester. (Had knee surgery 10 years ago). Finally said uncle to the pain in my knee and decided to have it checked out. Surprise, surprise...my right knee has a spot where there is bone on bone (been like that for years). The left one is fine. Getting old is no walk in the park!!! I qualify for knee replacement, in spite of the fact that I have full motion, can squat and bend it. I've been gimpy for over a year and don't take any anti inflammitories (as I was born with one kidney and protect it). Being busy the last month and with the outrageous heat and humidity, it was not feeling too great. So! I opted for a cortizone shot and will see what that does for me. Feels better already. Plan to postpone this surgery...too many animals to take care of. Knee replacement seems like such a fad these days.
Here's the first third of Gary's little orchard. He will outline it with 6x6s and it will have fruit trees and sculpture....period. No weeds!
One of our large gardens is nothing but vinca vines. No idea how it started, but there are lots of them.
Invited our friend Al over to pick up some beets. He and Tootsie Louise went over to check out Gary's handywork.
"Top o' the afternoon to ye!"
There was Newbie, checking out the afternoon activities in the paddock.
Jill stopped by to see Belle and the kitties before visiting her son for a few days.
I will be keeping her posted through this Journal.
Fed the ponies and picked the pastures. I was in heaven with this nice wet weather.
We've had enough to turn the grass green.
The gigantic row of cosmos in the veggie garden are responding well.
cucumbers, tomatoes and onions from our gardens....
Night all. Ahhhh. Fresh air.
