Backyard Selfie

OK, this is a current image, shot today. You can't tell by this view, but it's been close to a year and a half since I got a haircut, I'm staying safe and mostly outdoors. My pony tail is lower than my shoulders at this point.
2020, what a shitshow in a dumpster fire! I was off of work for several months. When work resumed, I cut back my hours to minimize my possible exposure to the coronavirus.
I mostly stayed in my apartment. I still do my grocery shopping at six in the morning when Wegmans opens, to avoid crowds of people. I kept busy doing tie dying. I did long and short sleeve t-shirts, bandanas and organic cotton face masks.
I did a little bit of bike riding, and some walking to keep active.
I had to give most of that up, as the arthritis in my right knee got worse. That is going to change next Tuesday. I'm getting a brand new, shiny knee.
I volunteered for a covid vaccine study. I got my first shot in November, and the second in December. I don't know if I got the vaccine, or a placebo. After I've somewhat recovered from the knee surgery I plan on scheduling an appointment to get the vaccine, once it's scheduled I can get unmasked and find out if I've already been vaccinated.
very colorful selfie! You have had a lot going on this last year! Good luck with the new knee. i know several people who have had joint replacement and following the therapy guidelines is the best way to a quck recovery I have been told!

Have been wondering where you had gone to. Good to see you back. Good luck on the knee surgery.

Wow look at those fabulous & bold colours in your tie dye outfit. Thanks for providing an update, I was wondering how things were going for you. Good luck with the surgery and stay safe & healthy.

Quite a fun outfit you have on. We’ve all had to get through this last year as best we could. Glad you stayed productive and busy, like your tie dying efforts, very cool.

Love the bright tie dye colours! We all need a bit of brightness in our day, especially during these trying times. Good to hear that you've been keeping yourself busy - and safe! And best of luck for the knee op.

@grammyn Thanks, Katy. I am expecting a physical therapist to visit me at home a couple of times.

@aecasey Thanks, April. I suspect you're right; I'll need to do another update.
