After such a delay in blogging and feeling guilty about it every day, I think it is time to tell you I will be taking a break. After living so many years, it has been quite easy to readjust plans to go on. I am just thankful that we can still make plans.
The last few weeks have been spent eating out of the freezer in anticipation of going north west for the summer. We keep a running tab pinned on the freezer telling us what lies inside and therefore all meals are planned on eating it up in a timely fashion. Everything was moving along quite well until the Trout decided to have a check up with his doctor. The doctor immediately set him up with a surgeon and just like that, surgery is scheduled for Tuesday. Our plans were to leave on Wednesday morning.
It seems the complicated surgery he had last September while out in Montana now needs revision as a hernia under the incision has occurred. That means no driving for 3 weeks and all the lifting restrictions that go with it.
We had originally canceled all plans for going to France in May, when we usually go, after my knee surgery in December. In hindsight, that was a very good idea. We have made plans for stomping around Provence in late October, so that seems to be working out well also.
We will take each day as it comes and be thankful we are as healthy as we are. Our love for travel will not stop. The Trout's fly fishing will continue in Montana...just a bit later. All is well and I will be back shortly.
