Good morning! How are all of you doing? I've got lots to say so sit back, grab a cup of coffee or tea and let's begin.
This week has been busy. We continue to declutter and unearth all sorts of treasures (junk) and I wonder why oh why am I keeping this stuff. I have systematically picked a section of a room and just go through the belongings and make a big pile on the kitchen table to then put directly into our SUV.
Earlier in the week, we donated a second car load and now we have a third load ready to donate. Slowly we are making progress.
Yesterday I fell in the hallway on a droplet of water that I splashed and did not clean up. I sprained my ankle, at least I hope it's just that, I see the doctor this morning to confirm. I am looking forward to his humor and teasing about how it's 'just' sprained. I don't know, I guess because I have RA and joint issues, I freak out when I injure myself and want to make sure all is well.
In case you're keeping score, I did not make it to my one year anniversary when I fell on my face and broke my nose (June 1st). It's a personal goal of mine to go more than a year without an incident. Luckily I sprained the strong ankle instead of the weak one that I always twist AND I did not fall on my face - so there are hidden blessings.
Every time I fall, my husband gets more gray hair, ha ha.
We've been so busy with decluttering that the knitting and the journaling have been scant. Now that the universe has given me a reason to sit and ice my foot, I'll being doing both of my favorite past times more often while I heal, can it be another hidden blessing?
Spring is officially here, I snapped a photo of my only fern on the property as it unfurls - it's a little blurry but still beautiful to me. I am loving the early morning sunshine as the day begins, Holly the cat does as well. She sits and looks out the side window at the birds.
I hope you have a beautiful weekend. Thanks for visiting and reading!
