It's Hobbling Day For Me

July 25, 2018

Good morning.  The sun is in and out today, and there's a bit of a breeze helping to keep it comfortable.  Temps are in the high seventies and will soon be in the low eighties.  The only thing that's not fun is the humidity.  Otherwise it's a beautiful summer day. 

Today I'm hobbling.  Yup, just can't put one of my feet flat down on the floor.  Last night, I put my bare foot down on the floor (good and hard) and came up with an ouch!  I picked my foot up to see blood dripping off onto the carpet.  Yikes, now what! 

Well, I was able to pick a good sized piece of glass out of my foot.  Once the glass was out of the wound, the blood did flow.  Years ago, people like me were called bleeders.  It took a while, but I finally managed to stop the bleeding and get some sort of bandaging on the foot. 

I haven't broken any glass in the house, or outside for that matter.  So I'm thinking that while I was walking around in the yard one of these days, I must have stepped on a piece of glass that stuck to my slipper long enough for it to make it into the house and come off in the carpet by my chair.  I'm just thankful that it wasn't Pogo who found the glass. 

Last night I worked on the patriotic tissue dolly dress.  My goodness, is it ever pretty!  Hopefully I'll get it finished in the next couple of days so I can take some photos.  Today I have a photo of another new Precious Moments figurine.  This one is just perfect for folks with kitty fur babies. 

Right now, I'm waiting for the mailman to come by.  I've written out some bills that I want to get in the mail today.  My regular mailman is on vacation for two weeks, and every day there is a different substitute delivery person doing his route.  Alas, they can come any time between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

There's a chance that we might get some rain today and/or tonight.  I surely do hope so.  We still have drought signs posted.  It would be nice to get some rain before Friday because it's supposed to hit ninety degrees Friday, and my plants could use a nice drink before the wicked heat gets back here. 

Today I have another new QP for you.  This one is for celebrating all the fun things we get to do in the summer time in this great land of ours.  Have fun with it.

Now I want to do a bit of blog reading while I finish my coffee.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day. 

Hugs, Edna B.

Yikes, hope your foot is better. I go barefoot a lot and surprised that I don't get stuff in my feet! It's hot here but the humidity is a little lower. I will be thankful for that change. Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!
