The purple cast has been lifting weights! It started with a 1 lb. weight and it was spotted at the gym today heaving a 7.5 pound weight! It can do shoulder presses, hammer curls and tricep kick-backs. Can't stand to look at the bowl of mush that used to be my pretty-well-defined (for an old gal!) upper arm. The purple cast was unable to lift a gallon jug of milk from the fridge this morning, but look out-it's bound to happen before too long.
Counting the days until purple cast gets sawed off. I know, I know....there's rehab ahead of me, but I'm ready to get to it. Five days, five days.....FIVE DAYS, ELEVEN HOURS!!
Here's how I've been counting down.
Friday night, the Texan and I kept this imp.

This past weekend was spectacular; cooler weather and blessed little wind. Perfection. Took the purple cast out to pull weeds in the secret garden on Saturday. The cast made a lackluster effort to pull weeds, but it was amused by the wildlife.
The butterflies are really loving the lantana, and many of them visit every day.

|I call this a hummingbird moth. Guess I should Google the real name.|
Decided to cook dinner on the patio, since the weather was unusually outstanding. Grilled steaks, made a crisp salad, and boiled a few green beans (in bacon, of course) for our dinner. While were were dining al fresco, the Texan noticed a visitor.
|do you see him?|
Don't ask me where they spend their time during the other seasons of the year.....I've no idea. Hopefully not in my secret garden.
Five days, five days, FIVE DAYS.....10 and 1/2 hours!
I'll let you know how it goes. Probably make you look at pictures, too!
The purple cast is giving all of you a thumbs up.
Rehabilitating love to all.
