Oh deer me!

Yesterday, while walking in the woods, spacing out, I sensed a movement and looked up to find myself about 4 meters away from a deer, who was apparently doing the same thing I was and was equally caught off guard. We stood there, staring at each other for about a minute or two, then I slowly took out my camera, but as soon as I turned it on, the deer took off. Too bad, but it was cool anyway.

Oh, and I’ve now lost 6.6 pounds. And Herr Cogg hasn’t been such a nuisance the last two days. Yesterday he asked me what I was doing in the evening and I said I was tired and would rest. That’s it.

But I didn’t rest. I went to the library and found some pretty funny old ladies playing Rummikub and I watched and gave them hints every once in a while (the other old ladies I played with went home on Tuesday, these are new ones). It’s a pretty cool game. How come I never heard of this before coming to rehab? Maybe I will have to get it. Anyways, I’ve been invited to play along with them from now on, so tonight I will be Rummikubing.

I spoke briefly with one of the other young people here who is in my aqua-jogging class. She seemed pretty shocked to find out I was 30 (she’s 21). I guess that’s pretty cool if I look significantly younger than I am. The secret: lots of sunscreen! I also spent about an hour walking around trying to take artistic photographs. I need to read my camera manual, because the camera is supposed to have a macro-focus or something that allows one to take photos from an inch away. I could not figure out how to do this. I will post my efforts on my webpage when I get home. Oh, by the way, no rehab extension for me. I go home two weeks from yesterday.
