and I'm probably the only one who's not there. Oh well. I can amuse myself. The last few days are best forgotten, actually it all began with the blast in my face, from there it went downhill. Do you have times like that, where everything goes wrong? One of those days, but actually several of them?
After the furnace service guy came (late) and went, there was the Biko incident. She slipped out of her collar and took off. One last backward glance at me, and off she went for her trip down the road. At the first moment I thought my heart stopped. But we were in luck, because at that particular moment, there were no cars, no people, no distractions of any kind. I only got her, because she found a spot, where the scent was so intense, that she didn't notice me sneaking up on her. I knew she was a clever girl and all, but I never thought that she would ignore me like that. She listens at home, in the house and in the garden, she comes when called and so on. Well, after an hour, I was still shaking. Imagine what could have been! Needless to say, she was in the doghouse for a while.
Last night my husband came home from his trip to Europe. His luggage was in the hall, and I promptly fell over his f***** carry-on suitcase. I could see myself falling in slow motion, thinking how best to fall and land, with minimum damage to myself. Silly, really. I landed on my hands, and my right knee, both wrists hurt, and my knee as well, but the worst are my left hand and arm, they hurt real bad. At first I thought I can't knit, but I can. Typing is much harder, and still I'm doing it. While I was on the floor, Sam came, walked around me and had himself a fine drink of water, after that he slobbered all over me. Thanks!
I did not make any progress on my spinning, or my holiday knitting. In fact, I had an idea for something else, and had to start on it, right away. I'm having fun, and I'll share the outcome with you. This is a picture just to tease you. ;o) I go now, lick my wounds, and knit some more. Wish you all a wonderful weekend, without accidents!
