Sometimes a beautiful hill or mountain hides the sunrise as it did yesterday for my early morning bird walk, making photos of birds in the shadows difficult – but patience! The sun eventually comes over the hill! 🙂
And today I slowed down my activities by necessity.
Forced Slowdown . . .
Well . . . my knee has been giving me trouble off and on the last three weeks and I’ve managed at home with medications the doctor prescribed but now they’ve run out and I’m walking more here and just had to stop today. Tengo dolor en la rodilla. That’s “I have pain in my knee.” I cancelled my scheduled harder hike to another new waterfall this morning because it requires 4 stream crossings (wadding) over slippery rocks which I knew would be too much for me, thus planned some more sedate activities like watching for birds from my porch, an Oxcart Wheel Painting Class, a tree planting that got postponed due to a spurt of rain, and the hotel manager insisted I go to the Spa “on the house” for a relaxation massage (back, shoulders and neck was all they would touch, avoiding my knee) and if that wasn’t enough relaxation, I sat in my hot tub a little tonight before posting this and now off to bed! 🙂
