Mostly it Hurts

This photo is apropos of nothing – just a shot I took yesterday when the snow eased off just enough to not risk damaging my camera.

Today is one of those domestic days: baking, laundry, cleaning – the usual three. Oh yes, and walking the dogs.

The big issue right now is these damn ribs. I’m beginning to think I may have cracked one or two. This sure feels like more than bruising. That said, there’s not much you can do about ribs other than suffer through it (quietly, although I do seem to be making a fair amount of noise.). Simon mentioned that I was crying in my sleep. Yeah – turning over in bed and then finding a comfortable place to lie is a challenge.

Walking the dogs today on Carpenter Creek felt more like a big hike.

So I’m laying low until tomorrow when I’m off on a KMC hike. Simon suggested that I call it off and rest. Clearly he forgot the cardinal rule that applies everywhere to everything: the answer to everything is hiking.

So I shall hike tomorrow.

I wanted to address the future today; I wanted to think. But the fact is that when I’m in pain, it not only extends to all of my body, it also makes my brain foggy. This is not a good time to think.

So I shan’t.

Perhaps later in the week.

But not today. Whew – escaped that task!
