Some of you dear readers may know that two months ago I broke my wrist exercising in the gym. After two splints within the first three weeks, and two casts spanning five more weeks, I finally, finally, was able to get my cast off…and into another splint. This one is completely removable and I’ve been encouraged to do so by my doctor in order to do my exercises for rehabilitation. It’s been awfully weird to actually be able to use my hand again, and I often forget that I really can’t use it 100% just yet, but I’m super pumped to say that I did a haircut at work today for the first time in two months…I’m definitely ready to jump back into the swing of things, beginning with a brand new gym membership!
While I was convalescing, I spent a lot of time on the internet, and reading, not to mention binge watching shows on Hulu and Netflix, so I’ve managed to stumble on some terrific gems for your Saturday blog perusal!
Kicking things off is this article and the admission from myself that I fancied myself an archeologist when I was a small kid (I mean, didn’t we all?) and could get pretty nutty about Stonehenge, the Olmec, and various other mysteries and civilizations of our ancient world. Reading about the newly discovered artifacts related to the lost colony of Roanoke definitely woke up my erstwhile dreams of solving that mystery (my ten year old self has total faith in our ability).
