If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you recall that my job as a part-time university lecturer gives me summers off! I spent 35 years as a public park and recreation practitioner working every summer with no days off and putting in lots of overtime. Summer was a season to get over with quickly!
For the past 10 years, whether working full-time or part-time, I’ve spent most spring and summer weekends at the Sacramento River Delta camping at our windsurf club’s seasonal campground on Sherman Island. We keep our trailer there for 5 months and make the 60-mile drive from Sacramento most weekends.
Quite the leisure lifestyle!
Before I begin with my summer plans, I want to tell all Sunday Stills photo challenge participants that Hugh Roberts will be hosting the challenge on June 2 and June 9.
I know you are thinking, “wow, she must be going on a fabulous vacation and won’t be around the blogosphere.”
Lounging on a Venetian gondola as the above image suggests would have been nice.
Instead, on June 4, I undergo surgery to correct a painful bunion on my left foot. The recovery process takes up to 8 weeks, with the first two weeks spent in pain from swelling, then removal of stitches. The doc will put me in a cast, then hopefully a walking boot.
Because of this uncertainty, I may be a bit absent from blogging during this time. Hugh has graciously agreed to host Sunday Stills for the first two weeks.
So no delta for me, or much of anything else until mid-July, depending on how fast I heal.
I’ve never used crutches, so that is an adventure I’m anticipating with dread.
In the meantime, I found a coloring app (Happy Color) to while away the hours in my pain-induced stupor. Both images above were downloaded from the app after I colored them.
If anyone has had foot surgery, do tell how you found your experience. And you won’t scare me, I’m realistic!
