Ward's in Winter

 
They say a heat wave is coming.  I thought we all might enjoy a photo of the E. Waldo Ward home at Sunset, in December of last year.  The weather was quite chilly at that point in time! 
 
Also, it appears that I've gone and broken my foot.  So...  my walking around town has been curtailed for now.  But, rather than curtail my blogging, I've decided to share some archive photos (of which there are many!).  I'm sure I'll be out and about, but not so much at the moment, as I learn to use crutches.  In fact, if you know me personally, and you see me coming toward you with my crutches, I'd suggest you run quickly in the other direction.  Really, a person should have to have a license to use these things...

  1. I am enjoying our spring gloom. I don't need a heat wave. Can't that wait until July?

    1. (Edit: I deleted my post because I am goofing with my profile picture. Sorry! Read below for original post.)

      Adele,

      I hope your foot heals quickly and that you can resume your walk-a-bouts in short order. Until then I shall content myself to enjoy your archived photos of the Madre. I am enclosing some healing energy in this message that will aid in your recovery. Big hugs! See ya soon!

  3. I love the pink/orange we get in our winter mountains.

    Coffee (iced, if it's hot out). I'll come and get you.

    1. I love it, too. I just noticed it even reflected off of the house in this one.

      Coffee sounds great!

      'mornin' Adele. So sorry to hear that you have a broken foot. Could I help you by dropping off the prints you ordered -to your front door? I wouldn't bother you. They are my 'get well quick' gift to you. Carolyn

    3. Hi Carolyn, Thank you! I would appreciate that so very much!! If you wouldn't mind calling one more time, and leaving me your number again, I can give you the address. (I accidentally deleted the number that first time, and then there was the phone outage, etc.) This would help me a lot - I could drive to your house, but can't see myself navigating those steps just yet.

  5. Oh no, Adele!!! So sorry. Been there and done it myself (ankle) 3 years ago. I couldn't walk for 6 months...so I am hoping you are in a much better state. No matter what...don't rush it!!! We are all pulling for you in hopes that you have a speedy recovery. Take care. Lauren xx PS Nice shot and cool pink mountains :).

    1. That sounds terrible, LOL!! I was thinking how much worse an ankle would be. Mine seems to be completely unscathed. This is odd to me, because I tripped over a sprinkler, caught my shoe on it, and landed face first in the street! So, two little broken bones is like a gift! Something like what you went through must have been awful! I hope you are recovered completely now?

  6. Sorry about your foot. Hope you have a speedy recovery. I know what you mean about crutches. I was a danger to all around me after some knee surgery. Never did get the hang of those sticks. :)

    1. Thanks, and I guess I'm not the only one, huh? I'm going to try very hard. :)

  7. Oh no, I hope it heals quickly! I've been on crutches for knee injuries and it is definitely not fun. I completely agree with LOL, do not rush it (my mistake), just let those crutches do all the work for now. Take good care!

    1. Thank, Lulu. Knees, like Lauren's ankle issue, seem like so much worse!! I'm going to count my blessings, and try not to rush it. That, I believe, will be the hardest part!

  8. I hope your back in top form soon.

  9. Oh man - that is rough. When I broke my ankle (six screws, one nail and a plate) I opted for a walker. Crutches are for the young or coordinated or both

    1. Hi PA, Thanks - Wow, that sounds awful! I'm really lucky it was only a couple of bones. No ankle! I'm slowly getting used to the crutches. Can only go a little way at a time, though!
