Isn't that a song?
So yesterday I did some volunteer work for the Day of Caring, which usually is done on September 11th in our area. We worked at the Boy Scout Camp and I love being up there in the woods by the pond Ė it is so peaceful and beautiful on my e 11th in our area. We worked at the Boy Scout Camp and I love being up there in the woods by the pond Ė it is so peaceful and beautiful on my eyes. I love nature.
So Iím on wood cutter assistant duty and am paired with two fellows who are cutting trees that have fallen in the woods. Iím moving the chopped wood out to the road so that when the scouts are up there in a few weeks they will load it unto trucks to be stacked in the main camping area. So Iím plodding back and forth through the weeds and over some fallen trees. I have been known to be clumsy at times and this was one of those. I tripped on a fallen tree and landed with the bottom of my chin right on a log. My chin swelled up like a golf ball and was slightly cut. The thing that hurt the worse was my head. I felt like I rattled my brain.
Today is a bit better but the headache remains. Unfortunately, I have major plans for today because my husband and I are providing homemade sausage, pulled pork, chicken wings and other meats for my sonís birthday party picnic. Last night I did get the sausage meat sliced, grinded and seasoned so today all we need to do is stuff it. The pork cooked all night and we have a little more shopping before we are done. It should be a good day; I just wish the head didnít hurt.
