I had another pain-free night, Saturday night, and I slept well.
Sunday morning, I woke up at 6:00 a.m. to take my medication, then, slept again until 7:00 a.m. I logged into the Temple's online services, but, wasn't able to detect any activity! I waited for about 30 minutes, or so because I know that they don't always start on schedule for various reasons, and then, called the Temple and left a message asking if there was a delay. Eventually, I logged off and said my prayers, myself. The head monk at the Temple returned my call a little later, saying they had experienced some technical difficulties and today's Temple services will not be available online, but, they hope to have next Sunday's retreat available for online participation. I'm sure it will work out just fine. I am happy that I made the effort. Intentions matter!
I didn't go back to sleep after that. Instead, I stayed up and read. Later, I helped my daughter fold and put away two loads of laundry (I folded; she put away).
But, the highlight of my day was being allowed to walk once around the back garden in the afternoon, to check on the plants, with my daughter accompanying me to make sure I didn't stumble or anything (with my foot being numb, I need to be mindful about maintaining my balance).
The garden seems to be thriving! The zucchini plants have grown so big over the past couple of weeks!

One of the plants that were planted under the peach tree already has a small zucchini growing!

While the plants that were transplanted to the weeded rose bed are not quite as big, but, appear to be doing well and one has a flower:

Nearby, the potatoes I planted in pots are coming along nicely, too - no idea if they will form any potatoes or not, but, they were old potatoes that had started to sprout and I planted them instead of throwing them away.
