Thank you for all your good thoughts and healing wishes.
I've been housebound since January 24
when I injured my calf muscle while skiing.
My days are spent looking out into the wintry forest.
On weekends, my family skis through the trees toward the lifts.
Some days there are white-outs with wind howling and blowing snow.
When Sam (3) visits, he helps Pop Pop with the shoveling.
Today for the first time,
I walked slowly on a road near my home.
Clouds are forming.
More snow is due tonight.
The icy air felt wonderful on my face.
My calf is still healing.
I won't be back skiing for a bit.
However, I'm gently stretching the muscle and walking short distances.
The foxes are keeping me company.
I'm still enjoying winter!
PS The foxes come onto the deck and look in the back door window.
I stand inside the door, taking the photos through the glass.
