I had a great class at TSNY DC this morning. I kinda felt like I was back at home--trapeze-wise. I was so much more relaxed and comfortable. I didn't have any shoulder pain at all and I feel like my take offs were better, even though I still had trouble lifting the bar (same as always). I worked on my swing, my take offs, and then we worked on the back end gazelle. I didn't have a successful catch--Meghan said I did a great trick, but Kirsten is a little short, so we just barely missed.
I have been quite worried about Gingie for a while now. Spring has Sprung here in Texas, and I was getting no love from Gingie. All I had was a naked stick. I was really concerned that I had killed Gingie. Still, I've been watering him faithfully and talking to him (and shaking/thumping him a little) and telling him to wake up.
This week I noticed that the clover in Gingie's pot has really started to grow and I thought--surely clover is more fragile than a Ginkgo Biloba tree! If the clover is okay, then Gingie must be okay too.
Well, I just went out onto the balcony and since yesterday Gingie has sprouted a few leaves! I am so relieved!
Side note: He is also covered in little specs of paint because the contractors painted the balcony and got paint on Gingie and Rosie. That is one of the reasons I was so worried. I thought the paint might have killed him. You can sort of see little whitish speckles of paint in the close up photo.
