Be careful what you say....

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Life is full of surprises. Although I don't blog often, I felt compelled to stop and take stock of my progress yesterday. I don't know particularly why other than it's important to measure your growth (or shrinkage!) every once in a while. emoticon

I no sooner finished my "nothing's gonna stop me now" blog when a new challenge was before me! I wish it was as simple to explain as "I zigged when I should have zagged!" But no. I don't tend to do anything the simple way! I might have felt better (or at least felt less) if there was cooking wine involved. But nope, nope, nope!

The whole calamity began & ended in probably 2 seconds. I was about to prepare some home-made soup. I put a large frying pan on the stove and added some olive oil. The plan was to saute some onions & celery, then lightly brown some chicken before I put them in the crockpot.

Next thing I knew, I was apparently sliding into home plate, however I don't remember signing up for the team. Suddenly, my ankle turned and I rocketed off in another direction.

Ut Oh! Did somebody mention lighting my fuse? emoticon

The end result, well....

and "No soup for you!" emoticon

But I'm still scampering around; OK, maybe limping, and I can still type with one paw, so onward I go. Aside from some pain and having even less coordination now, the worst news is I'm banned from the pool until my burns heal.

Have no fear - this old feline will be back on the prowl in no time!

Just perhaps chasing slower prey!

    Oh, I thought you were going to say that you drank cooking wine, which is full of salt and your legs blew up - and then you'd give us pictures of hot air balloons or something else silly. I was not expecting you to say you hurt yourself! I am so sorry!

    Doggone it! I'm so sorry that happened to you. The kitchen is a dangerous place; it's where most of my injuries occur too. I hope you heal quickly!

    No no no! That's too bad I hate when my momentum is challenged because I need all the umph I can get! Oh Dear. I hope it is a quick heal and you are careful. I'd offer you my pool but it's quite a hike and I'm sure you are not up to it, lol. Take care, Justyna

    Oh, Katy! emoticon How bad were the burns? I know that had to have been a very painful and unpleasant experience! I am sorry you had that happen.

    It's great that you can write about it with humor, though. I hope that you recover swiftly with a minimum of discomfort! I'll keep you in my thoughts. emoticon emoticon
