2021 in Pisticci…. feeling a bit limited..

My back problem is improving but is nowhere near how it was before, when I took it for granted that I could stand up , sit down, walk around, carry things and generally feel energetic and flexible.

I am starting to do some gentle yoga and exercise for my knee as well. I expect I will be back to normal by the end of the week , though not so much taking things for granted.

I’m planning to go to the supermarket every morning for exercise as it opens early and I can be back before it’s very hot.

In the meantime I have about 4 paintings I can work on.

Today I paid my electric bill online. Another bonus from lockdown. Was forced to find out how to do it.

I wonder what it will be like tonight with the football. I am hoping Italy will win, but I have no way of watching it. Not a big deal as I don’t like football. I will certainly know if Italy wins as there will be hundreds of cars driving around beeping their horns.

It is a little cooler tonight , but I can’t quite sit on my doorstep yet though I could try the chair at the table.

Ouch !! Just moved in the wrong direction.

Am really missing slouching in my armchair with my feet up on the wooden chest.

Perching delicately on the edge and then trying to stand up very slowly is not the same.

I think it’s probably a good thing that it’s Monday tomorrow and I can make like I am back to work , even in a creaky ,staggery fashion.

This was today’s painting ,begun yesterday.

Now it’s wine /anaesthesia time. Roll on Monday.


This morning. Appreciate every morning like this.
