It's the little things
Tuesday, December 13, 2016
For those of you who have been by my side with this latest knee issue, I'm happy to say that I woke up this morning with the pain nearly gone. I say nearly because I always have pain in that knee to some degree, but I am actually walking normal this morning.
And I had a hot shower this morning. Because our current hot water heater heats up too high - sometimes - we had to turn it to the very lowest setting possible. That means that you don't know if you're going to get water that's too hot, too cold, or just right. Today it was just right.
The best thing about today - I don't have to go outside until tonight. When Daisy and I were outside this morning it was -6 degrees, with 20 mile per hour winds making it feel like about -25. In the early fall we had unseasonably warmer weather which I absolutely loved - now we're having unseasonably colder weather (usually don't get below 0 temps until January). It looks like it will stay with us through the holidays but I'm okay with that - I am done with my gift shopping and I'll just need to do a little bit of grocery shopping for my Christmas Eve meal.
Such a little thing like less pain and a hot shower can really make the day bright!
