I'm nine months out from my knee replacement surgery and the front of the knee is still numb, so anything that involves kneeling is done carefully and often with a cushion. It takes time for the full healing to happen, and I have a follow-up appointment for the one-year anniversary and will be interested to see how much longer it will be healing and changing. And how much longer I need a megadose of antibiotics before I go for a dental cleaning, etc.

I think we've reached a point in this crisis of COVID-19 that staying home as much as possible is the only way to survive. I wasn't out a lot, but now curbside pickup will replace going into most stores. Don't go into any building where there are people not wearing masks properly.

I put up a new set of LED lights on the front porch last night, and have been testing the solid versus flowing and flickering pattern. I swear, some of those could bring on seizures. More lights in a shrub at the front of the yard will go in this afternoon. I had two strings of lights that I used to put on the front porch that aren't ready for retirement so I may find a way to repurpose them. I don't know if I have enough extension cords to run them out in the yard, but I may think of something else. Draping them on the decorative bars on the windows maybe.

I've been planning to make a quiche and was thinking about how to get broccoli that I usually like to add, but this time I think I'll sprinkle it with the smallest poblano peppers that got picked at the end of the season and need to be used or frozen. These are the inch or shorter ones that you would never see in the store, the size of small jalapenos but not so hot. I just spent several minutes removing the tops and seeds and cutting them in half. These are little bite-sized peppers that should be wonderful in the eggy custard.
