I was a little worried when I went to bed last night. Earlier in the evening I tripped, going up the stairs. I landed on my right shin and it swelled up like an orange. Honestly, I had never seen a bruise swell like that. I put some ice on it throughout the evening, but when I went up to bed it was throbbing and I could hardly walk. I took some Advil PM and surprise, surprise, I slept like a baby. The swelling has gone down considerably today, and I'm walking well. Thank heavens. I'd really like to not break any bones this year.
Brian bought and arranged these beautiful flowers for the Easter table.
They had so many mugs to choose from, it was difficult. I hope the Losers like them.
The last few days in the desert, we spent some relaxing time with Brian and Gretchen. I really like this pic of Gretch. I took it while we were walking in the little park near our condo.
She wanted me to take a picture of the bush, but I thought it would be even more lovely with her in it. I was right, wasn't I?After we were a wee bit settled yesterday, we took off for the library and the grocery store. The cupboards were truly bare. This is what we arrived home to.
The next door neighbor elves had noticed we were home and were hard at work. We are so blessed to have these girls as our neighbors. They make our life even more enjoyable.
Today has been a day of catching up. We left right after breakfast to see Florence at the nursing home. She is much the same. My heart is always heavy when we leave her. She held my hand and said she thought I had left her. I was surprised, as sometimes she doesn't even seem to know me.
Then it was on to the lab for Jim's blood work and more food shopping. Will we ever fill the larder? Of course, since we were out, we stopped off at one of our favorite little restaurants for soup and a sandwich. Home again, we are still settling things.
That's the fragments of my Friday. I hope yours is wonderful, and your weekend as well.
