Listening to Mandarin about two hours a day; reading about five hours a week. Definitely noticing progress, but without dramatic milestones. Been working through New Practical Chinese Reader 3 for awhile, and understand most of it, but don't have it wired yet. Occasional study with other materials. Not much soap opera or radio news now.
I'm walking a lot better, but the cane is still handy for crowd control, for distributing the weight, and for fun juggling with it. I've been studying shorter sticks and rope too... want to learn how to be handy with knotting. Picked up some twirling gear from houseofpoi.com. Been learning how to jump rope too, uhm, slowly.
