The best laid plans…

on August 18, 2019

My two months off from blogging to work on rehabbing my right knee from a fall last October –


Yep, the photo below…it’s my left knee. Sandals, kind of wet concrete, and Boom !


You know how the sprinters jump the hurdles, one leg stretched in front, the other tucked under…that was me…somehow on my back. But I stood, assisted by a sister and friendly passers by.


Xray negative – Yay!

Road rash taking weeks to heal…blah

    Ouch! That looks really painful. Hope it heals quickly.

  3. Basil Rene says:

    That looks painful! Feel better soon!

      Basil, I have to laugh at myself, thinking ‘ I’m designating eight weeks to fix a body part a little stiff and sore…as if I could isolate physical issues and manage them one at a time ! The universe was laughing at me a little and pulling my leg : )

      Thank you so much for your note!

    I didn’t raise my leg high enough when stepping over low railings to the front garden. There wasn’t even much blood, but it came from a LONG way in – surrounded by angry flesh.
    A moment’s inattention: six weeks of pain (so far).
    That’ll teach me (it probably won’t).
    Good luck with yours…

      Yeah, isn’t it crazy ! I was walking down the sidewalk outside of a restaurant. At the bottom where there is usually an area grated in the cement, there was only old slick swipes of what looked like cement glue ( I checked it out after standing again). It took me right off my feet ( and me wearing sandels didn’t help)

    I hope it’s healed soon. It looks so painful. xo
