Mother Goose

Here came our cooler weather which I was so happy about because I could finally spend some time outside working on my garden and riding my horse... and then on Saturday, I fell.  After 2 hours I wasn't improving a lot so off we went to the emergency room.  I have a fractured pelvis.  Not what I wanted to hear.  Anyway, I am at home so I am certainly glad about that and there is no treatment (surgery, etc.) involved with this - just takes time for it to heal.  I am walking carefully and slowly, but I am walking.
My husband went out yesterday to buy one of those walking canes with the pronged feet on it.  My - is it ever ugly!  I decided it needed a name and named it Mother Goose.  I have already started walking a lot without it.  I need to ditch Mother Goose as soon as I can!

I worked on the fabric baby books for my grandsons for a little while today.  Our poor dog is still very ill, but I cooked a hamburger patty for her this evening and she ate the whole thing.  She has been eating so little that it made my day.  I doubt I can go to the grocery store at this point, but I may need to send my husband to get some more hamburger tomorrow!  We have been trying every possible food that she might like - most of them without much success.
I'll post more pictures soon.  I know it's more boring to look at these posts without pictures.  Maybe I should take a picture of Mother Goose!  (Note: I originally posted this without the picture of Mother Goose, but here she is!  I can't help but think that I should have attached a beak or an apron or a pair of spectacles... or something to her...)


  1. At least you are at home...but oh, my it takes a while to heal. Sure hope you do well. I would be crazy by now...I have a hard time staying still. And falling is a big fear of mine. So behave and get back on your feet sooner.

  2. Sorry to hear about your fall. I'm glad your are getting around and can do some things. Please be careful.
