Like many or most folks my age I dread falling. It happens now and then but usually without anything too damaging. This evening I was sitting at the table reading something on my computer, and wanted to go into the kitchen to check on my supper cooking on the stove. I was carrying my computer and tripped over the space heater - not a terribly small device and it's a wonder I didn't see it! I ended up with a big gash on my arm, and an even bigger one on my knee, which is really going to make walking difficult tomorrow.
On a happier note I'm looking out the front door at the most beautiful sky - all shades of red, a bit of gold and yellow, and a patch of baby blue here and there.
I cooked some yellow beets for dinner that I had bought at the farmers market a week or so ago. The farmer kept stressing that they were very sweet, and they certainly were very delicious. The cooking water was also a beautiful shade of yellow! I saved the largest of the three and will fix it tomorrow, and hope I can find the stall where I bought these beets next time I go to the market.
I got my hair cut this morning. When I mentioned that I didn't know how long I would be able to drive to her salon, she said "Well then I will just have to come to you! That is so sweet of her, but lord I would have to clean my house from top to bottom before I'd let her in it!
It looks like our weather is going to warm up for a few days. I may even be able to keep the front door open and get some fresh air into the house. I really need to go back to dealing with the weeds, but I'd first better worry that I can walk tomorrow!
DON'T MISS HIS SENSE OF HUMOR
