First things first-- Here's a bruise update. Once again, the discolored area (now sort of greenish black) is not self-tanner gone awry, it is a bruise covering my entire ankle and foot. (If something is going to hurt and be inconvenient, the least it can do is look really gross, and I like to get *credit* for this for some pathological reason.) Still haven't ridden, but can now run. Tah-dahhhh.
I started it off by meeting my pal Lynn and having lunch and ice cream, or as we call it now, thanks to one of my famous typo's-- ice ream. Fun, and yummy. She brought with this gorgeous necklace she made lately. It was fun catching up.
Pam came over, knocked me into another web covered branch (more swearing), and grimly flicked the one remaining spider she could locate, into the river. She surmised the others has probably fled in terror and flung themselves overboard.
For those of you who are ooged out by crawly things-- you know how when they are nearby part of your fear is "omg, what if they scurry up my arm or leg"? There wasn't even time for that-- they were running all over me. After I kept saying, "But Pam-- they were RIGHT ON ME." She was like, "Yes, I know." ~pat pat~ ICK!!!
We felt so lucky to get to be outside having fun on such a gorgeous day. It was 100 degrees out, but it felt a lot cooler on the water. We had a great time. The best things in life, aren't things people.
Speaking of art-- my camera takes underwater pics, so this is me taking one from under water, through the surface, up at me. It kind of looks weirdly like I'm in Hawaii in the 70's doesn't it? Anyway, kind of cool.
All in all it's been a fantastic 3 days!
