I did it I did it!!




Those of you have followed this blog know how important it is to me to be able to carry my canoe on my shoulders. Well, we have had a mini heat wave here, over 50 last few days, the ice and snow mostly melted from around the canoe, and today I tried to lift it up. Success! Not as easy or smoothly as I used to, but I got it up without pain. I don't yet have the shoulder carrier on it, so I was unable to really try to actually walk with it, but I will soon! The OT and I set that for a goal during the next 12 weeks. Done! Yet to be proven is how well and far I will actually be able to carry it. Don't know how well I'll be able to get in and out or paddle yet, but I can see myself doing it when the season opens and ice goes out. Getting it up on the vehicle will also be challenging, may use a trailer, unfortunately some of the places I go a trailer cannot be used. Oh well, one thing at a time. I already successfully held and operated my fishing rod, I have my fish grabber I spoke of here earlier, I will be ready by season opener in mid May. Yes! Ain't life great! :Clap-Hands:


Working with the Saeboflex and Bowflex now take on a whole new meaning and urgency. I must develop more endurance so I can do what I want to do. Yes I know, don't over do and hurt myself. I won't. But I am not going to be sitting around either. I have a goal, I have reached part of it, I will get the rest of the way. As soon as I can I'll put the carrier on and try to take hostmel's advice and post a picture here for all to see of me carrying my canoe. I also got the tinker toys out today, plan to play with them until I can build with my beloved Erector Sets again. One goal at a time.


Wasn't going to blog today but just had to pass on the good news. Lesley won't have to add anymore bruises to my butt now.
