Be careful what you say....

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Life is full of surprises. Although I don't blog often, I felt compelled to stop and take stock of my progress yesterday. I don't know particularly why other than it's important to measure your growth (or shrinkage!) every once in a while. emoticon

I no sooner finished my "nothing's gonna stop me now" blog when a new challenge was before me! I wish it was as simple to explain as "I zigged when I should have zagged!" But no. I don't tend to do anything the simple way! I might have felt better (or at least felt less) if there was cooking wine involved. But nope, nope, nope!

The whole calamity began & ended in probably 2 seconds. I was about to prepare some home-made soup. I put a large frying pan on the stove and added some olive oil. The plan was to saute some onions & celery, then lightly brown some chicken before I put them in the crockpot.

Next thing I knew, I was apparently sliding into home plate, however I don't remember signing up for the team. Suddenly, my ankle turned and I rocketed off in another direction.

Ut Oh! Did somebody mention lighting my fuse? emoticon

The end result, well....

and "No soup for you!" emoticon

But I'm still scampering around; OK, maybe limping, and I can still type with one paw, so onward I go. Aside from some pain and having even less coordination now, the worst news is I'm banned from the pool until my burns heal.

Have no fear - this old feline will be back on the prowl in no time!

Just perhaps chasing slower prey!

    Oh, I thought you were going to say that you drank cooking wine, which is full of salt and your legs blew up - and then you'd give us pictures of hot air balloons or something else silly. I was not expecting you to say you hurt yourself! I am so sorry!

    Doggone it! I'm so sorry that happened to you. The kitchen is a dangerous place; it's where most of my injuries occur too. I hope you heal quickly!

    No no no! That's too bad I hate when my momentum is challenged because I need all the umph I can get! Oh Dear. I hope it is a quick heal and you are careful. I'd offer you my pool but it's quite a hike and I'm sure you are not up to it, lol. Take care, Justyna

  Oh, Katy! emoticon How bad were the burns? I know that had to have been a very painful and unpleasant experience! I am sorry you had that happen.

It's great that you can write about it with humor, though. I hope that you recover swiftly with a minimum of discomfort! I'll keep you in my thoughts. emoticon emoticon

    Ouch !! I am so glad that you were not hurt worse, and can still laugh about it.
So many things happen in an instant, and leaves us wondering how and why ??

Perhaps you could try a little emoticon to help you heal.

Take care & heal soon !!
