It was a beautiful day, the first day of fall. The day I longed for...
I was about to run errands.
I saw Matty and Mister in the distance, by the big apricot tree. So, I ran over to meet them. We laughed, and sang. Mister and I danced...
Matty jumped around us.
Then we kept walking...
And, the rest I don't remember.
Well, I remember landing on a cactus and ants, and white lightning pain in my inner ankle.
And rolling around, screaming in the dirt.
My left foot had fallen into a gopher hole, that was covered by weeds and invisible.
Hello urgent care.
Turns out, I have a sprained ankle.
No break. Thank heavens!!
But, it's still sprained.
Which means, I can't run around like I like. (for a little while at least)
So, to comfort myself....
I am hiding in here.
And, I am doing okay limping around. Although Mister keeps yelling at me to sit still (Dovee, Dovee Doveeeeee all day).
I can't do it. Sit still.
I just can't.
But I will try.
In my grouchy, I have to sit still mode, I decided that I had to find a way to make myself happy, if I had to stay in one place.
I decided I could find happiness if I could sort of semi-create the delicious lighting in the Cosmic Love video (Florence + The Machine).
I love this song. It is one of my faves of all times.
And, the lighting.
I want to live in that room. (especially at 2:55)
Plus the lit up dress at 1:30 is pretty magical too.
(here's the video below)
Isn't that room wonderful?
Don't you want pastel colored lights twinkling all around you?
I do, I do.
So, here's where I am.
Forced into relaxation?
Well, not that relaxing when you are in pain.
But, I'll be back to normal soon.
For now, I am staying sane by hiding in my twinkling nook.
This heart is for you.
There are so many fun things to come. I wish I had more time in a day. Don't you often feel like that?
The good thing is that, having to sit still is making me crazy excited for the Halloween Party.
I am going to paint all day tomorrow/today.
Normally I paint standing, so, we'll try sitting.
I can't sit and do things, can you?
I have to stand to blow dry my hair, and such...
Aye aye aye ;)
I suppose I am not a very good patient, at all.
Oh silly me, I forgot to post this earlier.
The beautiful moon on the first day (err, night) of Autumn.
Oh, look here too... yummmm!
pss: My family (including ancestors) have been using a Mexican arnica salve, well, forever really. It is helping me so much, I am slathered in it as I type. It was a regular staple growing up, and still is (I make sure to keep it on hand). I get mine in Mexico, but I will try to find a link to it in the US and tell you about it, in case you want to order some. It takes away all sorts of body aches/pains, and helps you heal.
pssss: Mister is making my post office deliveries, so that orders don't get delayed. And, I get to sit and make little parcels for folks who place an order. I love packaging orders. It delights me to no end.
