Toes, pizza and beach

Late Wednesday night (if I’m understanding the chronology correctly) plumtreeblossom hurt her foot really badly. Poor sweetie!

Thursday night I got together with xmelancholia and cathijosephine for pizza at cathijosephine’s place and had a lovely time. Lots of catching up, and lots of stories to tell.

After that, I got my car and drove to pick up my cane (which I got last summer when I had sciatica and had lent to somebody) and took it over to plumtreeblossom’s, and stayed over so I could drive her to work the next morning and she wouldn’t have to hobble to the T.

Had another lovely night with plumtreeblossom on Friday night; I picked her up at work to save wear and tear on her poor toes, we had yummy dinner at Sound Bites, and we went to a party (where, delightful surprise, we bumped into surrealestate).

Today plumtreeblossom and I went back to Nantasket Beach and had a wonderful time. This time we ended up at the more populous end of the beach, by the bathhouse and across the street from a little commercial strip. I got in a 20-30min nap, which was lovely. I waded into the water a bit, but it was a bit too cold for me. plumtreeblossom was braver than I was and swam a couple times (getting completely submerged). Yay for my salty sweetie. After the beach we stopped in at a little art gallery by the beach and browsed for a while. And we had Dairy Queen for dinner on the way back. :-)

EDIT: The beach trip set plumtreeblossom’s toes back a bit in their healing, but she’s still making enormous progress; today she was walking almost normally and not using the cane much, while on Thursday she hadn’t been able to take a step without pain. I’m very encouraged.

It’s been a lovely weekend so far, and tomorrow I have dinner scheduled with chienne_folle, so the loveliness is not over.
