Yesterday’s rain was long gone by the late afternoon and I took full advantage to get Holly out for a walk. There were a few puddles, but the skies were blue and there was even a nice breeze that put a real spring in Holly’s step. After all the rain, I was delighted to find an intact camellia blossom.
The leaves were singing a song and I looked up to see (and maybe to take a video with my phone) … then slipped off the sidewalk and rolled my ankle.
Ugh. I’ve spent the last 24 hours on Rest-Ice-Elevation and I think it’s going to be OK. Thank goodness for knitting and audiobooks (more on both of those tomorrow) … and a sweet dog who is more than happy to sit quietly by my side.
|the ankle behind the knitting is a little swollen and bruised, but definitely on the mend!|
*I told Katie and Charlie last night that it was a “stupid” story; they told me they don’t use that word. When I asked what word they might suggest to take its place, they said “silly”. I think I understand where they’re coming from; I’m not sure my dictionary does.
Stupid – having or showing a great lack of intelligence or common sense.
Silly – having or showing a lack of common sense or judgment; absurd and foolish.
For sure this story shows a great lack of common sense…
