Other than a cameo of my hairy legs, there are no human pictures this week. I know you’re very excited.

I did my 10 on 10 today, so you can go here to see those pictures. While I was doing all that, Dr. M took a picture of our little hummer.

I posted this on Instagram with this caption: Adventures in domesticity. I dropped my soap in the shower, and since I can't bend over yet & since my grabber does NOT work in this situation, that soap can just sit there & think about the error of its ways. On the other hand, my sweetie successfully folded a fitted sheet! #totalhipreplacement #healreadypickedupthesoap #sheetmiracle

Look at the fabulous dinner Dr. M made! There's are actual vegetables on there!

Red-spotted Purple Butterfly! I haven’t been very impressed with our Sedum (it’s kind of a mess), but butterflies & bees love it so I guess we’ll keep it.
Our petunias & morning glories are looking a little worse for the wear, but still putting on some pretty blooms, which Ms. Hummer really appreciates. And Ms. Pinky has put out one last (?) bloom of the season – and Ms. Hummer loves it too.
Meanwhile, The Weather Channel apparently doesn’t know who it’s dealing with. Ha!

I’m pretty excited to see this number continue to creep up. Hopefully I’ll soon be hitting my goal of 10,000 steps (last reached on May 1st).
We had some pretty high winds on Monday (Hurricane Irma residue), and the penguin wind chime migrated to the other side of the swing. No ill effects though. And Roy’s owner fenced in her back yard so he’d have a bigger area to play in. We think she got complaints from some neighbors about him roaming around. Not from us though. We love Roy!

Heather is going to simply disappear any time now.

Look! I changed my own sheets today! Very exciting!
I’ve had to wear these compression cuffs on my legs every night since my surgery. But I got to kick them to the curb this morning (Monday, when I’m writing this). So excited! Maybe I’ll try to sleep on my side now. Plus, those nocturnal trips to the bathroom will be MUCH less complicated. Woo hoo!
I’m continuing to take baby steps, and continuing to remind myself not to bend past 90 degrees. Two more weeks of that restriction & then I shall start wearing shoes with laces! Oh, and shaving. What are you looking forward to?
