Hairline Fracture

oh, ouch, I cracked my rib. I can't believe it. Except when I turn to the right, and there is a sharp wedge of pain. Oh, and when I try to pick something up, there's that pain again. I had this awful virus that seems to be taking the Bay Area by storm (maybe other parts of the states too). Of course, the minute that I could stand straight and walk, I begun to dye. I was washing out a big batch of indigo, my back was getting tired and I was coughing alot. I guess that was enough to crack my rib. So, my doctor said.

Adrienne has been a great help. Lifting pots. I get up early before she leaves for work, and wake her with a "little" task list. Then, I wait like a puppy for her to come home from work. "Will you lift this for me? Wash this for me? No, not like that, like this!" I feel bad. She has been such a great help. I will have to do something special for her.

Otherwise, the weather in these parts has been rainy and pretty cold for the Bay Area. I get a little bit bitter about that. I must remind myself: Do I really have room to complain? We have maybe 4 days a year that are 40 degrees. And maybe 7 days a year that it reaches 90-100 degrees. Rather temperate weather really. I guess it makes me appreciate the 350 days out of the year when I walk out of my house and don't realize I am outside. Same temp on or out.

I am working on a pair of Monkeys and will post soon all about that. Happy Friday!

I'm sorry to hear about your rib and cold weather! If it makes you feel any better, yesterday morning when I got in my car, the temperature was a balmy negative 15 degrees. Without windchill mind you! Hahaha.....

Ok, things could be much worse, one could have a cracked rib and it could be 15 degrees!
