I bet you can guess where this is going.
The clogs have more of a heel on them than my sneakers. On the way back to the house I was looking through the mail instead of at my feet. I half stepped on a pine cone and lost my balance. As I fell the possibility of broken bones and broken spectacles flashed through my mind. I even heard my glasses hit the asphalt when they bounced off my face. I'm happy to report there are no broken bones and my glasses only suffered minimal damage. (I can't live without my glasses. I could embroider or read for a little while perhaps, but nothing else.) I was fortunate that Hubby was working from home for the day. He was able to bend the frames back into shape for me and tend to the worst of the scrapes. Both palms have road rash. My right knee even got scraped a bit through my jeans - though the jeans don't seem to be damaged somehow. It feels like I have a deep bruise on the top of my left foot. That's what's keeping me from standing and walking unnecessarily. It also feels like I have sprained the base of my right thumb. Pinching my thumb and forefinger together is currently painful. Other body parts ache. So all the progress I was hoping to make over the next few days is not going to happen. And just for the record, I really don't need the headache that's trying to develop.
