Observation of colors
lingering essence of brightness and light,
the scent on the air of seasons coming
I tread eagerly amongst the bliss.
Pine and juniper linger
as I cast a breeze walking by,
cones and berries hang to inspire
the magical moments to come.
I could be down and sad
as the ache fills my soul with emotion,
yet I choose to embrace each second
glowing in this thing we call life.
Days of rest spent slowly,
fresh flowers and favorites await
I limp my way through the list of to-do’s,
taking my time as I need to,
with boys on the tube I keep busy,
catching up and in the finest company
of my sweet favorite crew,
so much to do my mind whispers
and I smile and gently say
it can wait for another day.

I injured my toe in a not so pretty way yesterday, a funny story but doesn’t feel so funny when I try to walk. Healing up today watching football with the pups and the hubs, as my naked tree waits for its shiny baubles and lights. If I lift my foot, my purple digit (smack dag in the middle) looks like I could be flipping the toe bird to one and all. Ouch but it will heal, just gotta make it through at work on my feet. Walking slow but smiling. Life and it’s blessings, guess I was meant to take it easy. Yep, okay. I shall.

  4. Oops, wasn’t ready to send that. Anyway, the pie sounds delicious! Arnica cream (it also comes in a gel and sublingual pellets) is a natural remedy, good to keep in first aid kit. I get it online but they have it in most drugstores. There are different brands of it. (I have fibromyalgia and it really helps with that too.)
    Anyway, hope you’re having a great day, Kim! β€οΈπŸ’•πŸ˜

  6. Ok make sure you ice it as much as you can when you get home. It sucks to be on feet all day, especially with a purple toe!

  7. I will have to look into that cream, never heard of it before. cookies are good….although yesterday I had cherry pie with praline pecan ice cream….it did the trick ❀ I don’t know if I can wear steel toed shoes at work, doesn’t look nice with dressy clothes though πŸ™‚

  8. Hey Sheldon, I was putting on clothing and got it caught in the leg hole hem….forced it through and it made a nasty snapping sound and I fell over as I was standing on one leg, it’s pretty purple and I soaked it yesterday for a bit, feels a little better but not 100%. sigh. Good to see you too S ❀


  9. Sounds like you need a good pair of steel toed boots πŸ˜‰ – they come in nice neutral colors (like, brown?) Augh, not funny I know. Have been there and sympathizing. And as you’ve found, best medicine is πŸͺπŸͺπŸͺπŸͺπŸͺπŸͺπŸͺπŸͺ s and lots of ’em.
    (Do you by chance have any arnica cream? I swear by it for bruises, sprains, strains, etc.) Take care, my friend!

  11. Ouch, 😣 sorry to hear about your toe! Such a tiny part of our bodies but they can sure hurt. Hope you’ll be able to get around at work. (At least you can wear sandals there, I presume?) Take care, Kim! πŸ’•πŸ’•
