It has been a week since ankle replacement. I am hopping around the house with an aluminum walker. I have only made it outside to the porch twice, to catch some sun and watch the hummingbirds. Mostly, I have been reading and napping.

Two books by Susan Meissner have been terrific recuperation reads, A Fall of Marigolds, see review link here-
 and then, Secrets of a Charmed Life, reviewed here-  Both books are in paperback and explore historical events, Ellis Island, 9/11 and the London Blitz, while intertwining a believable, well-written storyline in roughly 370 pages.

Weather has been a bit hot and steamy, but there have been frequent thunderstorms to keep the gardens growing. I am a bit antsy not being able to putter in the garden, but from my viewpoint the plants are doing well on their own.
