First, we’ve had no internet for a bit over 24 hours. I’m so lost without it but I handle it better . . we seem to have at least one 24 hour period every week with no internet. Since that means no home phone, no cell phone, no TV, no Ravelry, no Facebook . . we always go to bed early. We were in bed before 9 last night. Chad and Nicole were on the road, and thankfully, texts do get through so I could receive a text when they were safely home but . . the internet is back today so I’ll make the best of it . . til it isn’t here any more.
Sunday Vince was working in the garden so we could get the garlic patch ready for planting. I was in the kitchen, doing nothing hazardous, when my right foot got in the way of my left foot. Don’t even ask me how someone can step on their own foot but I did. I was barefooted and the heel of my left foot stepped right where the toes are attached to the foot and it hurt!
Please overlook the state of my toenail polish. Honestly, I polish my nails in spring to welcome flip flop season. I might do it one or two more times but by this time of year, the polish is just wearing off or growing off . . that’s how it works around here and it doesn’t bother me one bit.
See the toe next to the big toe on the right foot. Ouch! The picture was taken on Sunday. By Monday it was more swollen but no more bruising. Today, the bruising is almost gone, the swelling is down and I’m hoping to wear shoes when I go out later this morning.
I don’t need dangerous equipment to hurt myself . . I can do it all on my own!
