Despite a few set-backs, I am on the slow road to recovery

The past two months have been very challenging for me. First, knee replacement surgery; now, recovery from surgery due to a broken ankle on the same leg! How could this be, you might wonder? Please don’t ask; it’s too painful to discuss.

I have to say, my husband, Doug, has been my rock throughout this entire ordeal. Without complaint, he’s jumped right in to take care of me, and, the entire household.
Marinated, grilled lamb chops

Luckily, Doug is an amazing cook. His mother taught him well from early on, saying that one has to be prepared how to take care of one’s self, because you just never know.

When Doug sets out to prepare a meal, he goes all-out without breaking a sweat. For instance, he’s made a delicious lasagna in under 30 minutes, and whipped-up tantalizing kebab-like loin lamb chops along with pilaf, salad and grilled vegetables in less than an hour (not including time for marinating the meat, of course).
I could go on, but you get the idea.

Hopefully, in another couple of weeks, I’ll be able to stand on my own two feet, just in time to help get ready for our daughter’s wedding this summer.

On that note, I must continue to rest.
Until then, stay tuned, my friends!
