I have realized over the last week that the hip abduction exercise, moving your leg from straight over to the side and back ("windshield wiper" my PT calls it) has given me a raging case of bursitis in that hip, and it doesn't respond to the narcotic pain relievers. Ibuprofen is perfect for it, but I can't take it now. So I'll stop doing that exercise several times a day and see if this clears up. Today the rest of the leg is incredibly tender after the massage workover it got; she texted to see how I'm feeling and said we can skip that next time. Yes, please!

Declutter isn't high on my list right now, though I did manage to take that silicone broom/squeegee thing and round up the worst of the dog hair accumulated over a week. (Charmion, have you received one to try yet? What do you think?)

There is a rather demented sounding songbird that seems to come in around 90 decibels right at dawn outside my bedroom window. I notice it because it's usually about time to get up to take medications and the first time I heard it I was astonished at the noise. It perches in a tree about 10' from the house and blasts out this greeting to the world. I suppose the really odd thing is that it is only this one bird. It seems that dawn thunder used to mean lots and lots of birds that time of day.
