One of Those Days

Just in case anyone has the silly notion that things around here are always quaint and lovely , I thought I'd share with you how my yesterday went.  Events are listed in chronological order.

 ~ I woke up with a slight sore throat and a back ache (I blame the back ache on weeding- evidently I'm still waiting for my body to make peace with the chore).

~ As I was unloading the dish rack, something scurried out of my sink and across the back of the counter top.  Droppings in my sink confirmed mouse.  Sink and counters were cleaned in full willy-nilly mode, just waiting for it to reemerge.

~ The reason I was emptying the dish rack was because dishes were piled up from the night before (it happens sometimes) and needed washing.  In the course of washing, I dropped a quart jar on another quart jar, slicing my finger and shattering glass throughout the same sink. I. just. cleaned.  Dear Sadie bandaged me up and finished the dishes, bless her heart.

~ A neighbor came over to borrow our trailer to haul something and for a few brief moments, we thought the trailer had been stolen (theft would have actually fit nicely into this particular morning).

~ After Jamey's laptop croaked about three weeks ago, mine seems to be thinking it might do the same so just glancing at (no actual responding to) my email and comments took 40 minutes.  I might just have to wash it in the sink and see if it accidentally shatters, too.

~  About an hour later, OUT OF THE BLUE (I was simply walking), pain flew into the ball of my right foot.  So now, walking (if not completely flat footed and as gingerly as possible) takes my breath away.  I just about fainted away when I hobbled outside with my camera to get a picture of our bees bearding (picture to follow if my computer allows).  Since then I've been sitting on my bum, icing my foot and thinking of all the things I could/should be doing.  Driving will be interesting when and if I attempt it.

~  And that slight sore throat is in full throttle.

I'm not complaining.  Just sharing.  Just showing- we all have those days.

  1. oh my that was quite a day! I hope your foot, back and throat heal quickly!

  2. I love your blog and I have to admit I kind of romanticize about it. You know, like I would love to live in a rural area like yours and have the huge garden and skills that you have. SOmetimes it seems like everything is rainbows and unicorns!! LOl you know what I mean?
    I'm so sorry you had such a hard and trying day. I love the spirit in which you write. I would be complaing and not just sharing!! LOL

  3. Aww! It sounds like going back to bed and staying there would be appropriate, but I know little ones can make that impossible. Praying for improvement!

  4. Awwwwww.. ((((HUGS)))) to you! I have had those days, and it never, EVER helps to be sick on top of it all. Here's wishing you will get better soon and that your computer doesn't give up the ghost. (Unless, of course, you're secretly wishing for that to happen so you can get a brand-spankin' new one! Then I'll wish that for you, too! ;) )

  5. Oh my dear! Here is the silver lining -- perhaps it is all occuring in one day and you are in for days and weeks of nothing but peace and serenity! Well, it's a good thought anyway. Thanks for sharing and making us smile and the thought that we all share this journey together -- good days and the other kind as well.

  6. Bless your heart! You had what I call a Morton Day....when it rains it pours! Blessings for healing, vermin removal, and cooperative technical devices!

  7. Sending hugs and prayers your way!

  8. Oh my, that is definitely "one of those days"...and hopefully things will only look up from here on out! Call me if you want to complain about any of your aches and pains, you know I can relate! :-)

  9. Awww! Sounds all to familiar! Hope you recover quickly! It is so hard to sit around and heal when there's an ever growing list! Never a dull moment! Blessings!:)


Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
