This is what immobility will do to a person!!!!!

Ok - So I have finally been given the ok to try to start walking since my knee surgery.
I have been trying to do a little bit every day but it has been difficult & I am still not able to do as much as I would like.
So instead of walking at the beach I just sat in my car ...
And although the scenery is lovely -
just sitting in your car is not as entertaining as walking
UNTIL YOU DO THIS .....
French fries on the sunroof
I laughed until I hurt !!!!
I must say my husband is a genius for coming up with this one
BEST DATE EVER !!!!!!

And I have been working on another little bird:

I am hoping to finish this one tonight !!!
Have a great weekend

OK Here's the deal .....

I have read some pretty interesting posts lately about some happenings in Bloggers lives that they are not particularly fond of -
Due to the fact that I have gladly listened  to everyone with an open ear, smiles, & positive comments
I NOW FEEL IT IS MY TURN-
I DO NOT LIKE CRUTCHES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I can't bend my leg which is in an immobilizer 
This wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I  am not an incredibly coordinated person -
I like to stay active & that is obviously not happening at this point & time -
(Although, I am trying to stay busy from the confines of my chair)
My House is a mess -
It takes an act of congress for me to .....
Well we won't go there but
Let's just say everything takes an immense amount of time to accomplish -
My leg hurts -
Now my other leg hurts -
Our rescue pup Molly is now scared of me because I am rolling around in an office chair up & down the hallway & she thinks I have lost my mind - 
So........
My husband seeing my distress yesterday
hooked a lawn chair to a rolling gadget used to move furniture & rolled me around the neighborhood at 3am so I could get some fresh air -
This is obviously HELL ON WHEELS .....

And I don't know if you know this -
But everything you want when you shop from a wheelchair is on the top shelf -
& if you use merchandise to knock other merchandise to a lower position so you can reach it ...
it inevitably falls on the floor instead of in your lap -
And the floor is just about an inch out of your reach when sitting in a wheelchair .....

-------------------------------------

But I also noticed ....
There are some really kind people who pick things up for those they see "drop" their merchandise while shopping.
My kids are incredibly understanding & helpful ...
It was nice to feel the cool air & spend time with my husband all cuddled up in a blanket praying my homemade cart didn't topple over.

The stars looked lovely from this position
And - 
There are some Wonderful bloggers out there who are always giving support to their blogging buddies !!!!!!
Thank you all so much for your sweet comments & thoughtfulness
I do appreciate it !!!!!
Enjoy your week !!!

P.S. Notice the little photo of Molly
Doesn't she look beautiful !!!
