Slip up Saturday


So I wake with a good old pain in my leg..the temp drop does that with Arthritis…so dressed in my pj’s and dressing gown and slippers I head out to the porch..i take a pic of the temp gauge….brrrr.

The frost was gorgeous…it has killed many plants though.. and even metal ladder kitty was struggling..

So off I go.. planning on getting some snaps with my phone.. i didn’t want to take my camera outside.. and as I step down off the porch…yep slipped.. don’t call them slippers for no reason..

 

 


And off I go…into a world of ouch…so my left leg hit the deck..i kept slipping and my right forearm followed suit…and to top it all off I hit my head on the rock in the garden…

So it’s now night time..my leg is sore..my arm not so bad and I am sure I am getting a bump on my brow…urghhhh…I guess I may just rug up and lie on the couch…I feel a head ache coming on..poor Hubby heard the thud and thought it was Forrest on the porch he was so worried…..no Forrest was busy looking for kitty truffles in the frozen tundra while I was lying on the ground bent out of shape..bless him…I will remember that on Wednesday when he has his 11th birthday…hmmmmm..
Enjoy you Saturday folks I am off to sook now πŸ™‚ now my knees sore…dang

  1. Oh no!!!!! Bev you’ll be even more sore today I’m sure. Falls are so dangerous and I do hope you’re alright dear girl – slippers are comfy but no traction on ice/frost of course as you well know. Let’s hope the worst of this is some bruises!

    Hugs, Pam

  6. Mom knows what the falling is like as she did that last year and it wasn’t even winter. Mom’s head bled something terrible….blood all through her hair and down her face. OMC, she looked like someone was trying to butcher her! She had a sore head but said she was more embarrassed than anything. Our neighbour was a doctor in residency and she whipped over to see how mom was. Our neighbour laughed so hard when she saw the expression on mom’s face….like oh _ _ _ _! What have I done now! The neighbour explained that it was superficial and head wounds bleed like crazy. hahaha. Needless to say mom is very careful outside around the deck now. Oh….the ijury was caused by mom relaxing and following off the deck….its only about a foot and a half.

  8. OW, oh no….I hope you don’t feel too much worse before you feel better. My hubby also learned about going down the wood stairs in slippers last winter when taking the puppy out. He was carrying Luke for a middle of the night potty run. Luke was fine, but boy was hubby sore for a few days! I was in bed and also heard the thud….but I feared what had happened, and I was right!

  15. Oh my!! Praying you are ok!!!! That rock is HUGE and I am worried that you have a headache. Bumps on the head are NOTHING to mess with, if you feel worse, head for the hospital. Praying you are ok. You are making me want to re-post a blog post I did about when I fell down steps outside trying to help a cat I “thought” I heard. It is somewhere in my archives, I may have to find it! Praying you are ok!

  16. I love the photos Bev. No I don’t miss the cold Winters of down South for a minute. I hope you are feeling a bit better. Comfrey cream is brilliant at curing gashes and minimising bruising. Synchro is a bit weird as when I woke up this a.m., I had been dreaming that I was climbing a ladder across to a room, and gashed my right calf and there was blood everywhere!
