Last week around Tuesday or was it Wednesday, anywho, I messed up my left foot.
My thinking of how was that I might have slammed it against the bed railing which is hardwood. The 2 1/2 inches of it surrounds the waterbed. I thought at first I broke the thing because I was having trouble walking on it. By Thursday it was black and blue with blood-red undertones. Nasty looking. I was having to walk with my old walker to get around. I was in a fuck-load of pain up until Sunday. Friday I put a mugwort wrap on it and most of the black and blue was gone by Sunday. I'm walking okay now but the foot still has a bit of the red left from where I whopped it. Other than that, I had a decent week.

gone but it's still swollen

Last night before the sun was completely down I went out with Lucy to see if anything else had to be done in the courtyard. I looked up while I was standing in the backyard porch doorway and the spider was making an egg sack. it was as if she was blowing up a balloon. It was a translucent white. Nothing was in it but she was really busy with it. I was guessing a wild beehive nearby had been bothered because bees were buzzing around me like crazy. I never got stung though. They were just nosey.
A couple of them had gotten caught in her web and she was quick to stifle them so they wouldn't tear up her web and then she went back to her job of getting things ready for the babies. We finally went indoors and the bees were not so happy about me leaving. They kept trying to get through the glass door. David said it's cause I'm so sweet. This morning I went to check on the spider and she had quite a few ready to eat packaged bees in her web all nicely wrapped. There were two on the ground. Empties. I looked for her egg sack but couldn't find it. I guess she hid it well in the upper eaves of the house away from the harsh elements of the coming winter.

Well, I have laundry to get to. I would have done it last week Friday but shit happens. Y'all have a magical day.
