I’ve fallen and I can’t get up. Or at least, I did yesterday. I was coming downstairs with an empty laundry basket and my laptop. I stepped down into the living room and stepped on an overturned melamine bowl and fell like an asshole. I seriously screamed and could not move for about 10 minutes. I thought I broke my ankle because I couldn’t move my foot but eventually the shock wore off. While falling, I tried used my forearm to break my fall. Of course I broke my fall with my forearm against the sharp corner of a cabinet. I didn’t draw blood, but it’s swollen and will soon bruise nicely. I jacked up my ankle, wrist, arm and my neck, but the important thing is that my laptop is fine. It’s all about priorities.
In other less dramatic news, I can scratch one more thing off of my ChÜberlist:
For my cold blooded lizard husband, these are the perfect socks. Worsted weight 100% wool. He was literally amazed at how warm they are. He immediately requested, nay, DEMANDED that I make him more socks. He hasn’t taken them off since they were finished, so I guess that means he likes them.
I also decided to make some pink cookies today; I used this recipe with the following changes:
3/4 tsp raspberry extract
1 c semi sweet chocolate chips only
7 drops red food coloring
I think I’d like a more intense raspberry flavor; I will try 1 tsp raspberry extract next time. I also want a brighter pink; these weren’t vibrant enough for my aesthetic.
In other news, I can’t believe it’s only 10 more days until Christmas. I have more knitting and crafting to do, but with my arm and wrist jacked up, it’s going to be a rough go. Boo me.
