Kadesma, I am sitting here with my leg all wrapped up and a boot on my foot. I broke a small bone in my foot and kept quiet about it. The last thing I wanted was this. I figured if I stayed off it, eventually it would heal. But today I had an appointment with a new foot doctor. I sort of mentioned it to him, that I think I sprained it. So danged if he didn't have x-ray equipment right there in his office. Sure enough, the break showed right up. I am so pissed at myself. I should have kept my mouth shut, yet I know I did the right thing. So for the next six weeks, it will be weekly trips to the foot doctor for more x-rays and a checkup. On the x-ray you could see the scar on the bone from the previous break. So the chances of healing right on its own was almost nil. I would end up with a limp. So I sit here pissed at myself and yet I know I did the right thing. Danged if I do and danged if I don't.

Take care of that leg. I ended up in a wheelchair for four months and major surgery to put a graft on my leg.

As much as the smell of bread baking is wonderful, I'm at olfactory overload with that. Ten loaves of French bread on Friday, 12 on Saturday and another 10 yesterday and, so far 8 today. It's nice to smell the fragrance of sauteeing onions and beef as I prepare for tonight's supper.

There's something about the "promise" of something good when I smell onions cooking.

So..."what I'm doing" is relishing in the fragrance of the prep for tonight's supper, then I'm going to sit down, put my feet up and listen to an audio book.

I'm watching the tube. Catching up on all the football I missed yesterday because I was watching Rich Man, Poor Man.
This morning I fixed a fence. The wind blew so hard last night it snapped a 4x4 post off at ground level. It's miserable here. Which is why I am sitting inside.

I thought I had a slow leak in a tire so I took the car up to the local garage and walked home. I soon got a call telling me it wasn't the tire but the tire pressure monitoring system. That should be covered by warranty so I'll have to get to the dealer this week.

Just put a chocolate cake in the oven for our grandson's birthday. He's here tomorrow so we'll have a cake and ice cream for a snack.

I'm sitting our smallest dog this afternoon. We noticed last night she had split one of her front nails. Took her to the veterinary and they clipped it WAY back and wrapped her foot. The bandage can come off this evening but she needed to be watched so she didn't chew it off. I now have anti-biotic for her and pain meds as needed. Since she didn't show any pain when it happened I don't think she will need many of them. I gave her one when we got home and she has settled down.

Aw, poor doggie. Give her a hug from us and I hope she heals quickly.
