Sew Sharp Sometimes


Sometimes I think I’m sharp.  I think I have it all figured out.  But soon I find, I’m not so clever.



Giant Fake Scissors

Like leaving the necessary Easter preparations until last minute.  And then you realize, your giant plans are too overwhelming.

And you just want to sit around and eat chocolate and cookies.

I dashed out of the house yesterday morning before the kids were up so I could go to my regular Lupus doctor without dragging them along.  Got to the bottom step of the front porch and whoops…I must have missed the step.  Next thing I know, both my ankles twisted to the side.

In flight, I grabbed onto one of the giant spiral evergreens next to the stairs, embedded dozens of sharp evergreen needles into my hand and saved myself from two broken ankles.

Hope you’re all ready for the Easter Bunny!  If so, hop on over here and help ME out…LOL!




  1. Oh boy – that is a rough morning! Hang in there and let the family pamper you! 🙂

    Where do you find all the neato pictures for your blog?? They always amaze me. 🙂

    We went to grandson Jake’s 3rd birthday party today. My how time flies. Seems like yesterday I was pacing the halls all night at the hospital waiting for him.

    Happy Easter my dear friend!

  6. I’m so sorry that you sprained your ankle! I broke my toe a few weeks ago and while I’m much better, I still haven’t healed 100% yet, so I completely understand about hobbling around.

    Let your family pamper you and let the Easter bunny give you extra special treats this weekend. 🙂

  7. Sorry you are feeling badly. I always manage to get hurt at just the wrong time, so I can commiserate. Hope it doesn’t spoil your plans too badly.
