{Virtual Coffee}

   Good Morning!  I was thinking of you last night while playing outside with the kids: 
 (I borrowed this idea from one or two of you, but I can't remember specifically who)
The kids decided to join in the fun, too... 

What's your interpretation?
An amoeba?  The sun?  An eye? 

 The Power Puff girls

Just before all this chalk time fun, I had a little accident.

    I jammed my thumb pretty bad.  It would have been comical to observe:  I was preparing the bath for my daughter.  Our tub is very big and deep (it has some of those jets in it).  As I reached over to get some soap or something off the ledge on the far side, the bath mat slipped out from under me. I used my hand to save my fall (into the tub) and jammed my thumb.  (Note to self: buy bath mats with grips on the bottom from now on).
   My sweet Hubster put an ice pack on it and wrapped it (hence it looks gigantic).  This morning, it still hurts and is very swollen.  When Hubster wakes up, he'll re-wrap it and hopefully he will tell me I don't have to have it x-rayed (although I suspect that I will-- but please let me linger in the denial a little longer).  At least its my right thumb, and I'm a lefty-- I can type this post with minimal pain, but I can't use it to grasp.  This may spoil plans for quilting and a quite a number of other things.
   Edited at 10:58am:  returning to finish post after dropping kids off at camp and purchasing a brace at Walgreen's.  Had more I wanted to share, but it just about killed me to put the brace on and now its even more swollen and painful, so I'm going to ice it and visit all you linkers over at Virtual Coffee on Amy's Lucky Number 13 blog.  I'm eager to hear about all of your week(s)!

Your blog is very cute, thanks for visiting mine as well!

Sorry about your thumb, but I do hope it heals quickly.

Ouch...hope nothing's broken and you're on the mend soon!

Ouch! I hope your thumb is okay!

Helen said...

Ouch! I really hope for you nothing is broken & it is only a sprain (is that how you say it?). It would be a shame that all your quilts plans have to be delayed. Keep me posted on what Hubster thinks.
PS - thanks for the vitual coffee

Oh, poor you. I hope your thumb stops swelling and starts feeling better soon.

Thanks for your kind words on my post. I hope your thumb isn't broken - as you said, at least it is on your right side. Hpnotiq is a drink (alcohol based) that has the desired effect of its name. Yellow plums are popular here, at least they come from the Ontario fruit belt. Usually you can eat them in two bites, often you can pop one in your mouth whole and chew around the pit. Redoing my son's room was on the summer schedule - the heat wave just happened at the same time! As for the sidewalk chalk, I think it is a very creative way for kids to work big and be seen. And it's temporary! Wishing you a cooler Sunday. I hope you are on the mend.
