Summer Nights

This is another wasted summer: no beach, no vacations, no swimming, no running, no work. Always at home to heal and short walks by night with my wife (after a couple of right comments I have to specify that in this case it is not wasted time) to enjoy these beautiful summer nights. Here you can see the street where I live and the sunset on the sea:



On wednesday I have another medical check and I hope I will be able to throw away the uncomfortable orthopedic device. I also hope I can start soon the rehabilitation. Who knows?


Have a good Sunday and .... run strong!

  2. non andrai in vacanza ma a quanto vedo non è che poi vivi in un postaccio. per il resto posso solo augurarti una rapida ripresa.

  3. Walks with your wife on beautiful summer nights does not qualify as a wasted summer to me!

    1. You are right, those walks are one of the few good things in this period.

  5. I like to think that periods of rest and slowness are necessary preludes to speed and action. I do not think you will regret the downtime! That said, I hope your appointment goes well and the device comes off and the next phase begins. You will be back--just keep cultivating patience, BK!!

  7. Don't think of it as a wasted summer rather time to spend with your wife on short walks, time to ponder and time to read/watch TV or whatever you have been doing to pass the time. Just remember all your friends out here in bloggie land are thinking about you.

  9. That brace must be incredibly hot to wear in summer. If only we could plan our injuries to fit in better with our lives - winter would have been a better choice for the sake of comfort. I hope it comes off very soon.

  10. I feel like I very much wasted the second half of my summer...with no kind of excuse like yours! It does sound like you've made the most of what you can do. Hoping you get good news at your check-up!

  12. I'm glad some of the other commenters pointed out that it isn't wasted time - it's just time spent differently this summer! That is so true and a great reminder that it's all within the way we look at things to change our perspective... I hope your rehab continues to go smoothly and that you can ditch that horrible brace very soon!

  13. Lets hope for good news on Wednesday. You live in a beautiful place and walking there with your wife is really great. Thanks, the Springboks did well. I did not see the match as I was running on the mountains :)

  14. I hope the medical check will go well tomorrow and you'll go swimming next month. Good luck!

  15. Yes, no summer is wasted if you can get outside and enjoy the warmth. Your orthopedic device looks like the kidney belt I used to wear on the motorcycle - that wasn't very comfortable either ;)

  16. I keep my fingers crossed that you get good news tomorrow and have a speedy recovery from that point on.

  17. You still look in good shape (if not great spirits) for suffering such a big setback. And at least you have the lovely night walks with your wife to get you through the dull days. Keep those spirits up.

  18. I totally understand how hard it must be to keep a positive attitude thru everything you've been through. But I'm glad you realize the summer did not go to waste. You live in a beautiful place with a beautiful family. If nothing else, injury reminds us to cherish what we have. Hang in there S--more healing thoughts coming from Chicago!

  21. Amazing flowers right by your house...hopefully the sight, smell amd feel of the ocean breeze have made your recovery time less stressful! I am hoping that you get good news when you visit your doctor...so patient you have been!

  23. Ugh, I can completely understand your frustrations. It's great that you're outside and walking though! Keeping my fingers crossed that the brace is gone soon, and that your stregth comes back quickly!

  25. Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, I've neglected it for a couple of months, but for good reasons. I've been busy. I'm glad to see you are well and that the oleander (trees) are in full bloom!

    Be well. :)
