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.
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?
The end result, well....
and "No soup for you!"
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!
