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.
