Lying in bed surrounded by pillows, checking my email and things for the first time in days, not feeling nauseous finally (also for the first time in days), reading a lovely cookbook called The Vineyard Kitchen, and reflecting on a day that was simple and just utterly perfect, I feel so content I could purr. I finally took the wrappings off my knee yesterday and took a shower, which was like heaven after two days of being in bed and smelling like hospital. It's not too swollen, although still quite a bit stiff and I find that I can't really put much weight on it yet. Nonetheless, Bryce noticed me going a bit stir crazy and took me and my crutches to the Farmer's Market this morning for fresh peaches and then out to a local Cuban restaurant for lunch. We proceeded to spend the rest of the afternoon in bed - reading, making love, napping, and watching movies.
And the best part is, I get to do it all over again tomorrow.
Oh, life is good. Very, very good.
