Here I sit, with my foot up. It has been over a week.
I'm patiently (well sort of) waiting for the pain to subside.
I've worked up a few of these.
If you know what these will look like all done, because you've received one from me in the past, please don't comment on that. I like it to arrive as an unknown to the recipient!
Everyone keeps making comments like: "You mean you're not at work?" "Aren't you just wearing one of those boots?" "It's just a toe".
But for me this pain is making it very hard to be walking on it, even with the boot or the special flat shoe. I don't want to make it worse. I want it to heal and I want to get back to work ASAP. I can't be there with a special shoe or boot. I'll take my asthma and migraines any day over this sitting around waiting to heal.
So while doing so, I've also been making these. I set a goal (a'la Peggy and her monthly, yearly stitching, journaling etc. goals ~ I was inspired) of sending of at least one of these a month during the year 2016.
So far, so good. In January I sent off two. I am almost done with February's and thankful for the extra day to get it together!
Lastly, speaking of that extra day, I was hoping to again Leap on the 29th as I did 4 years ago...but I don't think I'll be trying that with a broken toe!! Ouch! You can see me leaping in 2012 here.
It's interesting to note how different the weather was four years ago.
We've been really warm here this week.
I hope whatever you are doing, it is fulfilling and sustaining and providing you with what you need as we leap towards March!
PS Thanks for keeping my secret :)
