Its All Fun And Games Until Someone Winds Up In A Cone

Or should I say a splint. I won’t be playing much for a few weeks. No sewing, cooking or canning either!

Seems that little spill I had last week resulted in a splint this week. I have to wear this for a few weeks since I seem to have broken my hand just before the wrist. Typing this is difficult and I am NOT supposed to me moving my fingers too much. So if my blog posting is irregular this is why! I will be back!

Its Out To Get Me!

The ground that is.

Years ago I had a very serious broken arm from a fall. Since then I haven’t fallen at all. Until yesterday that is. I was walking and chatting with Mr.M when suddenly I found myself flat on the ground! I had stepped off of the edge of the sidewalk as we rounded a corner. Whammo! There I was laying down when I least expected it!

Aside from seeing those little sparkly lights one sees just before fainting (while I was laying there trying to gather my wits) and some bruises, the worst of it seems to be a very sore wrist (maybe a sprain) and a cranky knee. Lucky for me the injury is not on my left arm (the one with the plates and screws in it). Unfortunately, it is my right wrist, which is the hand that I do everything with.  Last night and this morning I had to try to brush  my teeth with my left hand. It was so difficult that it was comical!

The whole adventure has slowed me down a bit and has induced Mr. M to want to wait on me hand and foot. That is easier for him than me because I am so independent. Hopefully in a few days I will be back to my usual busy self…

Make Your Own Pineapple Vinegar

If you have been reading my blog for very long you already know that one of my grandsons lovingly dubbed me a witch because there is always something fermenting, brewing or steeping somewhere in my house. Today I want to tell you about my current fermentation: pineapple vinegar. This “secret ingredient” is a favorite in many Mexican homes and is called vinagre de pina. Not only is it delicious and healthful, it is easy-peasy to make! Read the rest of this entry »
