The Reclined Summer

This past week has been fun as Tom and I have managed to find things I can do from a reclining position. Because the weather has been nice since I got out of the hospital, I've really wanted to just be outside! On Saturday we got a drive-thru lunch and took it to Blythe Park in Bothell where Tom set up my lounge chair in the sun. We ate, talked, and read for a few hours. We then went home and had a group of 9 over playing a Magic tournament that evening.

Our friends loaned us their Xbox so that I have more activity options. After getting movie-mush-brain on Friday, this has been excellent! I've spent a few hours playing Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, and Catan against the machine. Tom and I have also spent some time playing Lego Star Wars together. This is a pretty good arrangement since some of the segments involve flying, which I'm not good at. Tom can get us through those parts, then I rejoin him for the jumping and light saber-swinging segments.

On Sunday Tom dropped me off at my parents' house while he went to church. I again got to sit in the sun for a while! Yesterday I worked on a few knitting projects. Today I got to spend on a friend's couch while Tom was at work, and then at the park in my lawn chair at Community Group this evening. It's been so nice to have a little change of scenery!
