Broken Foot 4 - Six Week Update
I stopped by the orthopedist's office today so that they could take some x-rays of my foot and evaluate how well the bone's been healing.
Broken Foot 3 - Two Week Update
It's been two weeks since I temporarily ruined my life.
Broken Foot 2 - Orthopedics
In which I travel to Edina to have a specialist tell me how badly I've ruined my autumn.
At 23:00 on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 I fell down [all] the basement stairs and ruined my autumn by breaking my foot.
In what would turn out to be my final kayaking trip of the year I paddled my boat around the perimeter of Lake Nokomis - and discovered a surprise!
My kayak is on the long side (15') and, as such, is better suited to large, open waters (lakes and oceans) but that didn't prevent me from sticking it in the fast waters of the mighty Mississippi.
Hyland Lake Kayaking
I hauled the boat down to Hyland Lake in Bloomington. I'd walked around this lake a number of times over the years. This is the first time I paddled through it.
Cedar Lake Kayaking
For my second jaunt in the new kayak I exploded half of Cedar Lake.
For the first outing I decided to take my new kayak out to Lake Harriet and paddle it around for a while.
I spent most of the spring and early summer looking at kayaks. I finally found one that I liked enough to buy.
I got back from a long weekend outdoor festival yesterday to discover that the city had suffered a massive storm, with numerous power outages which apparently caused a couple of the database files to become corrupt. If only my backup process hadn't stopped working six months ago...
My first attempt at an all-grain brew. (Spoiler: it didn't go well.)
Hybrid Cream Ale
Vice City needs beer. So I'm making one for them.
