with Jim and Gayle
I had my one month checkup for my knee. Here is its x-ray.
I continue to struggle with the after-effects of the surgery.
After over 6 weeks, I am only now beginning to feel better. There
are still a lot of days when I still feel lousy. Also, my hips
are killing me. This is severely impacting my knee rehab as the
PT has had to start concentrating on my hips rather than my knee
because I am in agony with the unceasing discomfort in my hips.
While I recuperate, Jim continues his unending work on the
lot. He is enjoying himself and it gives him something to do
while I am recovering.
He rebuilt and repainted the two storage boxes on the lot.
He finished repainting the shade structures above our kitchen
He rebuilt a court washer to make it easier and take less water to
wash our lot.
He rebuilt three ceiling fans and hung them in the pergola.
I wanted a new faucet for the outside sink because the old one
didn't have a sprayer. I found a brand new one on
Craigslist. I liked it better than the one we had inside, so Jim
replaced the inside one with the faucet I bought and replaced the
outside one with the old inside faucet.
We bought an electric sunscreen to be installed along the back of
our pergola to help keep the wind out during winter evenings.
We had covers made to protect the pedestals and counter during the
summer. Jim put too much effort into rehabilitating them to leave
them unprotected during the hot summer when we aren't here.
The stove in the clubhouse caught fire. The fire damage was
minor but the water damage from the automatic sprinklers is huge.
It has been HOT here with temperatures in the triple digits for most
of the month. In order to do all of the work on the lot, Jim was
getting up early to work before the temperatures were unbearable
(though many days, he worked from about 7am to 4pm).
