View of Melbourne at night
Now I can put weight on my leg in the moonboot, I no longer have to carefully plan my trips around the house to optimize use of my leg. I can take a frivolous trip, say just to fill up my water bottle, or to pick up a sock on the floor. I can just stand up and stretch, arms high, with weight on my injured leg. The plastic bags used to carry dinner in a bowl are gone, as is the small juice bottle, refilled with wine. i sip my wine out of a wine glass again, and my sandwich is on a plate not in a bowl. I swept the floor today, which prior to my accident was an unwelcome chore, now a small joy. Actually, just getting off the couch and going for a walk with no purpose at all is a thrill!
This is still a work in progress. Abstract Eucalyptus trees - view out my studio window. Acrylic on board.
Not sure what to call this one! Oil on board.

Sitting enjoying some marlborough sauvignon blanc and Arnotts shapes sensations - lime & Chili. What a great combination! Ordered them online from Coles and had them delivered right to my refrigerator! Watching Graham Norton interviewing Jon Hamm, Charlize Theron and Steve Coogan. Very funny!

Autumn Abstract 4, Acrylic on Board
As I start to use my leg more, it hurts! All the muscles from my hip down are aching as well. Now after walking around in my moonboot, I have to rest my leg and put ice on it. Back on painkillers to sleep. What a slow process!
