Still Sitting

The ATV gang went out again today without us—the cowboy decided to stay home and keep me company.  I’m still spending a lot of time sitting!  I’ve tried to accompany Michael and Emmi for our early morning walks but I can’t walk our usual three miles—I’m getting very impatient for this little episode’s departure!!

Last night we were invited to a potluck at Geri and Larry’s.  They have ATVing friends visiting—Bernie and Penny plus Doug and Sonny—what a fun group!!  We all gathered with our own choice of grilling meat, a dish to share and our adult/non-adult beverages in hand.  After eating  we had movie night in the Biltmore tent—Geri does a simply fabulous job of using her photos to make movies and also editing her Go-Pro movies.  She showed a movie of their Montana visit last July/August—made the cowboy and me a little homesick!!

The cactus blooms get more stunning by the day—look at the orange on this one:

The cowboy took me to lunch at Lydia’s Cantina in Wickenburg today—awesome food and a fabulous wait staff!!  We made a grocery store run then home.  Did I tell you we bought a bicycle—a $30 bicycle—but it will fit the bill for us.  We had to order two new tires and Michael got those on today—now it rides much better. 

A good day even if I am still sitting!


  1. Very appropriate for Easter Cactus to be blooming this weekend!

  2. We really enjoyed our Arizona trip last week even though a few days were pretty hot sitting in the stadium for Spring Training Games. We used lots of sun lotion and didn't get our BC skin burned to a crisp. Not much of a tan either, but that better I guess. Hope you feel better soon. - Margy

  3. Yep, amazing how much better a bike rides with tires on it alright!

  4. Those unexpected back tweaks & injuries can be a very nasty bit of business taking a long time for things to shift back into place. Slipped discs can be sooooo painful. My back has been pain free for 6 or 7 years now but I know how fast things can happen, how painful the results, & how long it takes for the back to be pain free & right again..

  5. Back pain? No fun. We sure hope you get back to normalcy soon. Bicycling will be nice.

  6. Hope your back loosens up real soon:) Keep it stretching! North Ranch has the most beautiful cacti this time of year. You always post beautiful flowers:) Take care, Janna!

  7. Wondered what those giant blooms were called - they're beautiful! Nice of Michael to stay home with you and then take you out for lunch - you may not get better for a while now.....
