Two weeks ago I had 3 skin biopsy's after a full body check for skin cancers. Thursday I had an appointment at 10.30 am to get the results and surgery no 1, if necessary. The Gang and I had had a lovely walk in Victoria Park on Wednesday, but I was determined to get up early and do my 8 km, hilly circuit on Thursday morning, just in case I was not to be allowed to be out and about after my visit.
It was a lovely clear morning with just a hint of cool in the air. The birds seemed to be greeting me every step of the way. Of course they rarely stay long enough for me to get a photo of their beauty.
Some shots of the morning.
There seems to be large flocks of crows around at present. Not my favourite bird because of their raucous, repetitious call. On this occasion, they too seemed to be filled with the joy of the morning and we got along just fine.
I walk this track at least 3 times a week. Only today do I observe a nasty scar on the distant ridge.
Alas, yet another rural, lifestyle development on the go.
10.30 arrived and the good news is that only 2 of the three have to be removed. The face is fine. The right calf can wait until June, but the left shin must be done immediately. I don't usually procrastinate, but I have been counting down the days to my visit to my son in Canada, in just under 4 weeks and don't want anything to spoil the time with him. After some discussion with my skin specialist, who I hold in high regard, the surgery went ahead. My job now is to keep off it and keep it elevated for 4 days. The stitches will be in for 2 weeks, so definitely no walking for some time.
Thursday night was the 99% full moon, just on sunset. My favourite time of day, but I didn't venture out. I was quite pleased with what I managed from the lounge floor.
Suddenly appearing through the pool fence.
I don't expect that there will be much happening here for the next few weeks. Enjoy the great outdoors for me.
