looking for a few good ideas

  amongst the irregular verbiage

Back to work

We're still sleeping on the floor. My sore knee is still a nuisance, aching and stiff maybe 50% of the time, and I have to be careful or I twist it funny and start the whole thing off again. Movement is definitely coming back though. I think the range of motion increases as the pain threshold point moves further away.

This afternoon we planted some landscape lighting in the back yard, which runs off a 12-volt cable running around the planters under the surface. The final result is very cool.

The carpet will be replaced in the front room and master bedroom next week, then maybe we'll be able to sleep in a bed instead of on the floor...
