That is really rather delicious. How's the ankle doing? Been thinking about you.
August 26th, 2017  
Wow what a shot Fav

@casablanca -- thank you for your concern! I can't believe it but here it is, over a month later, and I'm still limping around and wearing hiking boots for the ankle support. Absolutely no running yet -- but I am able to walk quite a bit. Sigh. Injuries take longer to heal as I get older, I'm afraid.

@365projectorgdebbydavies @lyndamcg @joansmor @pamknowler @nicolecampbell @inthecloud5 @leonbuys83 @sarahlth -- thank you for your comments! Sometimes I think I should make scenes like this my screen saver so I can feel calm amidst a lot of writing deadlines . . .

Simply superb. And yes, something like this would make a lovely, calming screensaver.

Wow. Wish I were there.

@jyokota Ah, how true is that! My teenager mends much faster than me! Continuing to wish you well. Work on strengthening your ankle. One physio trick I learned with mine was to stand on one leg. All your muscles and tendons have to work. More advanced is to do that with your eyes closed but you need to make sure you are standing next to a counter to hold on to if you wobble!

@casablanca -- I fell again today! Now my finger is swollen, too. Sigh. Thanks for tips on strengthening because other than walking constantly I'm not doing any exercises. I'm away from home so I don't have a physical therapist here.
August 27th, 2017  
@jyokota Oh you poor thing! Other tips are circling your ankle, drawing the alphabet with your big toe, also standing on a staircase on the edge of the step (choose the bottom one!!) and holding on to the rail gently drop your heels down while your toes stay where they are and then go up the other way so you are in effect standing up on your toes. You can do it both feet together or one foot at a time. Just go gently and see how far yours will stretch and it will increase in flexibility as you work it. I really feel for you!

@casablanca THANKS ! Who knew that the 365 community would have PT tips! Are you a therapist or how do you know all this? These are really great tips. I really do have to strengthen that ankle because I'm sure that's why I fell again today. And I was even wearing my hiking boots! Those cobblestone streets with giant spaces between stones . . .

I had spinal surgery and so back pain is a thing I understand very well plus the year after that I broke my ankle. So I have stood where you are quite literally! I have a fantastic physio who plies me with practical help. Walking is great but you need to strengthen it and get it fully mobile in all directions too. One for the back of the ankle into the calf area too is to place your feet one in front of the other in a straight line, literally heel touching toes, have a counter or nearby door for balance and bend your knees slightly. It isn't a big movement but you can feel it right deep in the back of your ankle.

@casablanca I put all the tips into my evernote. Thanks - and you take care of that back and ankle of yours, too! Must stay strong for photography! BTW, when I fell today I had my camera in my hands, NO strap (left it at someone's house on Friday) and my camera was safe, phew!
