Here it is Monday, the beginning of yet another week. We are back home now. We left Big Bear about 2:00 yesterday afternoon, and had to come down the back way due to a wreck that was blocking traffic for our usual route. We wound up not going out on the boat with Ron and Sue. We woke up and had a leisurely morning. Greg took a walk, and I sat out on the deck and finished knitting the dishcloth I started the other day. I love this yarn!!! It is Cotton Ease, by Lion. 50% cotton and 50% acrylic. It knitted up so nice, and I love the weight of it.
When we got home, there was a lot to do. After greeting the doggins' who missed us terribly, I had to go do some work in the garden.
Here are the vintage sheets I got while thrifting in Big Bear City. They are all washed and line dried, and ready to put away, until I have the right project for them
http://www.fresh-eggs-daily.com/ that to prevent this problem, you can steam your eggs, and they will peel perfectly for you! So, I tried it tonight.
Tonight after I had done the watering and taken care of all of the animals, I was dragging the raft to the shallow end of the pool to put away. It was getting dark, and I was not paying attention. I missed the concrete, as I was rounding the curve of the pool. I went down, with the back side of my left leg scraping the concrete edge on the pool. And with a whoosh, I was under water, after having hit my right knee HARD on the deck. I went in with a big splash! I was not sure what I had hurt. My knee was hurting from hitting it on the deck, and the back side of my left leg was scraped all the way down! I lay in the water, hanging onto the raft, still unsure if I was really hurt. My son came running out to assist me. I heard him say, "Dad, Mom is hurt" And guess what, Greg never even came out to check on me. I guess he is used to his klutzy wife getting hurt. Yes, I do it often. I am a klutz! The pool was delightfully warm, so I just floated in the water until I felt like I could climb out. Greg did come out with a towel for me! I wasn't hurt bad. Just banged my knee and scraped my leg. It was a busy day. And now it is time for me to go lay heady down.
