Fresh snow and cold weather make for winter sports

These next few weeks are tough for me. A recent "major surgery" has left me inactive. I'm not to lift anything heavier than a half gallon of milk. Any activity is frowned upon. Hopefully the healing process has begun and by the time we get enough ice to fish from it, I'll be good to go.
Planning on future posts has kept the mind active. Those that have read this blog before know of my interest in kayak fishing. I'll have more to say about it in future posts. There is new equipment to talk about and some websites to suggest to help you get questions answered about this ever popular sport.
Because I'm limited as far as activity I've not done much with my ice fishing gear. And with Christmas coming up my plate is getting kind of full.
My wife of 53 years was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease a couple of years ago. So far, just her balance is affected. However, as we go along other things begin to show like anxiety. So much so that she will hardly leave the house.
But I'll share more as we go along. Right now I'm trying to keep the house clean, cook, do laundry, and help my wife Pat however I can.
One thing that has been a constant comfort for the both of us is our Cavalier, King Charles Spaniel, Molly. This breed doesn't have a mean bone in their bodies. She is always on one of our laps or lying close by. It's a good feeling to know she is around and wants only for a good scratch around the ears and something in her bowl twice a day.
I will write more about my life as we go forward. I'm still figuring out how often my posts will occur and what days you should look for them.
For me, this is another chapter in life. Unfortunately I'm of the older generation that grew up prior to the gadget or computer age. Therefore I'm a bit limited with computers. I'll try and learn more and make this space as interesting and welcoming as possible.
As always, your comments and suggestions are most welcome.
Merry Christmas
