Thurs - Independence

Thursday, July 04, 2013

I haven't accomplished a stinking thing today. It has rained all day long. I deadheaded the lilies and gathered some japanese beatles off of the roses but that's about it. I have appointments all morning tomorrow morning and need to get down to feed, water, and walk the GD in time to get to them. I stopped and bought a transplant shovel tonight and then went to the fabric store and got enough material to make a twin quilt for DD's BFF.
When I was leaving DD's house I missed a step on her front porch and did a nose dive out the front door. I have some bruises and a sprained wrist, but I'll live. Sister kept trying to 'help' me. I kept telling her to give me space and a little time...but she was paniced. I think I hurt her feelings by not pulling on her to get up. Anyway, I was able to crawl to the edge of the porch and get myself in an upright seated position and finally get on up. I don't think any thing is broken and I'll be sore...but busy tomorrow.
It's almost 11pm and the booming of the fireworks in the area has finally stopped. I love hearing the celebrations in the distance. We live out in the country and several people in the area throw fireworks parties...we get the benefit of seeing it in the distance. Fun.
Well, tomorrow will be here too soon. Be blessed all and Keep Sparkin'!!

    Glad that you're doing well my friend. I live in the country but not quite as country as it sounds like you are. Be blessed.

    Ooh, ow! We all can relate to falling. I hope you don't bruise up too much. I understand about someone trying to help us up, and then when we do it ourselves, their feelings seem hurt. Happened to me. May you never fall again!

I heard fireworks also in the country but did not want to step out in my slippers. I am sure all the cats went into hiding as usual.
