But we picked up another book, Kathy Reich's Bones to Ashes, which was due today. So I finished it about half an hour ago, then fired up the walker and took the elevator from Five down to One. My first solo off-floor excursion -- and with a purpose! Since I have a wide-bodied walker, the 767 of walkers, I wasn't sure if it would make it through the door to the library, so I took the four-footed cane, and my Deluxe Gopher grabber in case it fell over, which it did. But that was when I was taking the cane and grabber off of the handlebars, since THEY were too wide for the door. (grin)
Anyway, I have now set foot inside the library and returned my book.
The Temperance Brennan mystery was pretty good, especially as it started out in Beverly, on Chicago's South Side, an area I know a bit about because of in-laws. (double-indemnity-grin)
Also today in therapy I walked up and down an entire half flight of the real stairs, 8" rise we think, not like the 7" rise of the four stairs in the gym. And took the walker for a spin all the way around the perimeter corridor on One without a break. About 280 feet. My PT therapist was thrilled with me.
I was chuffed.
