Oh, I had so many plans for today. There was cleaning, and scrubbing. (I do enjoy a bit of that from time to time, you know).
There was the making of my signature dessert, my apple pumpkin pie (which I plan on posting later on).
There was a visit back to my new favorite wine store. And well, I did get that one accomplished. (Priorities, you know).
But this morning, while having a cup of cappuccino out on my front porch with my husband, I walked down the steps and TRIPPED off the very last step where it meets the earth. And I fell down. And I actually cried because my ankle hurt so badly. Cried!
I hate crying. Usually. But this hurt so badly that I simply had to cry.
My husband rushed to help me. My dog sniffed me and declared me AliVe. And right before I fell, I had taken this little video of George. He'd been fetching and catching his toy in the air and I thought it would be fun to show off his abilities on my blog.
But I erased it accidentally. (Because I am an idiot).
Have you noticed my extreme use of the parentheses in this post?
So now, I'm having a glass of wine and nursing my ankle. I may still make the pie later on.
Riddle me this: What do you do when a beloved co-worker changes in an instant and hardly talks to you anymore? What do you do when you know it's nothing you've done? What do you do when you absolutely miss the jocularity, the camaraderie, and the downright exhuberance of said co-worker? And I am not putting the links in for him anymore. I am just not.
It's just so . . .
Don't mind me. I'm just pissy because of my clumsiness.
And two posts in one day. Wow! I haven't done this in, well, since I began blogging! And the picture? Well, it's actually a watercolor I was playing around with in Photoshop while I've been sitting here nursing my ankle. It's just a simple pic of a tree that wasn't really any good. I'd taken it through one of the windows that had a screen in it, and I'm posting the original on my other blog tomorrow. I just liked how the watercolor looked.
