The neighborhood pool has closed for the summer. We got home in time for a Labor Day swim. After I blogged about riding my very old bicycle to the pool, there was a request for a picture. My daughter snapped this one, and I hope you enjoy it.
If you can't see the photo here in the blog, try this link.
I am happy to report that my shoulder is almost healed. My doctor said I had strained my latissimus dorsi. He said to keep doing the neck and shoulder exercises that I was doing. He offered a prescription for muscle relaxers, but I declined. Of all the supplements I tried, I think extra calcium and magnesium worked the best.
I have a little stiffness and pain when I first wake up, but before breakfast is ready I am feeling fine. Even the swim did not set me back this week. It seemed like it hurt for a long time, but when I look at the calendar, it was really just three weeks.
I have been a boring cook lately. It is so hot that I hate to turn on the oven. We've eaten lots of fish because it cooks fast. I've fixed hamburgers (turkeyburgers for the As) several times in a skillet on the stove. We've eaten lots of salad and of course, lots of fruit. I have been making pumpkin seed butter and almond butter and can almost make a meal out of carrot sticks and nut butter.
As soon as we get a hint of cool weather, the cookbooks will come out.
