Humpty Dumpty

A couple of days ago when it was still nice and warm outside, I decided to cut down some wild honeysuckle sprouts from the embankment in front of the house. Armed with clippers I set forth and whacked down a number of the smaller ones and turned to return to the house. OOPS...not sure how or why but I ended up face down in the gravel road. BIG OUCH!

Laid there for a moment and decided I was capable of getting up and stumbled back into the house to survey the damage. Day 1 the worst thing was my face. Ewww...

Next day the shoulder that took the impact kicked in and hurt some.

Today I am much better unless I try to do something requiring the use of my right arm. Then, I see I'm not quite healed yet. But very grateful nothing was broken, a lot of road rash, a thorn in my finger, and some poison ivy: cracked but not shattered.

I really do need to find some gardening shoes that are more flexible. I am blaming my tumble on my old orange garden clogs that make me even more clumsy than I usually am.

At least it has gotten chilly outside and I'm not sitting in here feeling bad because I want to be out there working.

I do want to note that I am now cutting asparagus, ate the first shoots for breakfast this morning.

GeeeeeEEEeez -_- That looks painful, hon. *hugs* I am glad you are feeling better, though <3
Definitely splurge on those new shoes!

It only hurt a little while, digging out some old tennis shoes.

Beautiful flowers, though <3 Can't wait to see that here.

Ow ow ow! You poor thing. That was a lot of damage from a fall.

Glad you at least got back out there and got some yummy fresh spring asparagus

Never had so much obvious damage, just grateful I didn't break anything.

The asparagus was a treat.

Ouch! That sucks. I’m sorry. I’m glad you’re okay. Good thing it was minor & you know what to do about it now. Heal soon xoxo [I must tell you “xoxo” got autocorrected to “coxis,” but I’m sure yours is okay lol]
Apr. 13th, 2019 01:32 pm (UTC)
Lol yep coxis just fine. I just hated it thst it was my face, ah vanity.

Ouchie. I've done this and it really annoys me. You had the best of intentions, too. I hope you are feeling much better soon. We finally took one of our director's clogs away from him after he fell and shattered his leg. His doctor approved.

Those clogs gotta go. I have fallen, but this was my first face plant.

I never heard of anybody falling down and scraping their face, hurting their shoulder, and blaming it on old garden clogs, while sitting at their desk drawing pictures... just sayin'!

Great point and gave me a good laugh too. Thanks!
Apr. 12th, 2019 06:24 pm (UTC)
Owie! So sorry about the fall, but glad you're recovering...
Apr. 13th, 2019 01:28 pm (UTC)
I'll be fine...tough old gal.
Apr. 12th, 2019 06:42 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, that looks painful.

I agree, proper footwear is important. Especially as our feet get older.
Apr. 13th, 2019 01:27 pm (UTC)
It did hurt, probably my worst fall ever, but much better now.

Switching to tennis shoes...lol
Apr. 12th, 2019 07:42 pm (UTC)
Oh, I am very sorry for you and I hope your bruises will heal quickly.
Apr. 13th, 2019 01:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I'm already much better.
Apr. 13th, 2019 01:54 am (UTC)
My goodness! I hope it doesn’t feel as bad as it looks, and that you finish healing quickly.
Apr. 13th, 2019 12:58 pm (UTC)
First day was rough, already healing up.

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry. At least you're starting to get better. Take care of yourself.
Apr. 13th, 2019 01:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I'll be fine. I'm tough.
Apr. 13th, 2019 07:32 am (UTC)
Ouch. No fun. I hope the grazes and the shoulder soon heal up.

That's the problem with clogs sometimes. What's easy to slip on is also easy to fall off of...
Apr. 13th, 2019 01:25 pm (UTC)
Already much better, thanks.

Switching to tennis shoes.
Apr. 13th, 2019 08:46 am (UTC)
Ouchies! I hope you heal fast.

Mmmm...asparagus shoots for breakfast!

And what a pretty garden!
Apr. 13th, 2019 01:01 pm (UTC)
I heal quickly so already much better.

The asparagus was great! Now need rain and temps to rise so I can have more.

Glad you like the garden, it is my herb garden, doing a makeover there this year.

It's not the shoes, it's that damned gravity! Sometimes I could just curse Sir Isaac Newton for inventing it! But then I remember his delicious cookies, and have to forgive him.

Take care of your arm, and heal soon.

Apr. 13th, 2019 01:24 pm (UTC)
damn gravity, responsible for my sagging body parts too! Hah

Thanks, I ready to get back outside and rake today.
