Sarah Kala over at "the road" has reminded me once again of things that need to be done. I've got some clearing out to do. We started rearranging yesterday and putting up Christmas decorations. They are all going upstairs in that ridiculously large closet of mine. We are turning the extra bedroom downstairs into an office. It doesn't get used much as a bedroom anyhow.
I need to get through the filing cabinet, clean it out and re-organize it. Labels and all. I am so not! a label person, but it needs to be done.
I twisted a tendon in my ankle last week and it is still bothering me. Went to the doc yesterday and got the RICE talk. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. Hard to do when you need to get things moving around the house. 8 years ago I severely sprained it, resulting in a casting. Took a step down and landed wrong. Doc says I should have had physical therapy to strengthen it at that time. I didn't. Needless to say I have numerous problems with that ankle. So this time, I've been referred to Physical Therapy.
It was really bad last evening. I was on my feet all day yesterday and it was just swollen and aching. Ugh. I. need. to. be. able. to. get. around! I've got school starting up this week, work on Friday and our ladies group kickoff function to coordinate and run on Thursday. So, we'll see what gives.
Mmmmmm. My coffee is tasty this morning. The other morning as I was letting out the doggie, I noticed a cardinal in the trees behind the fence. So I've been going out every morning to try and spot him. Brrrrr..it's cold! my jammies are still warming up. But it's such a pleasant experience to watch him fly through the trees. His red feathers so bright against the drab browns of the deadwood surrounding me. Even his song is so different and interesting. It's worth a few minutes of cold. I've got to find a way to get him to land in my yard! :)(then I could watch from the window..inside the house!) Any suggestions?
Anyhow, the sun is coming up and I must start this day. Blessings to you all!
