Life in Maine

I Wanna be just like Lou

So today, I took a flying sprawl on the fresh snow covering the driveway. I was going out to help Lou bring in the groceries, and just happened to step in a spot of snow with solid ice underneath. What is that about no good deed going unpunished? My feet went straight out from under me, I landed on my back, then bounced my head and elbow off the ice. Fortunately, my heavy coat took the brunt of the fall on my back. I am a little sore tonight, but not too bad.

In other news, I have a sneak peek at one of Lou’s secondary projects. He is having a door put in, replacing a window in the loft that overlooks the small deck in the front. Andy and his apprentice are working diligently to get it done before the girls get here on Friday.

You just never know what Lou will come up with next.

There are some new posts in the Diabetes Denied blog. I did the Test Kitchen assignment on Lasagna for Chrisie, and there are a couple of postings about my new Peloton Bike (thank you, Santa).

We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Beth and Catherine. They are set to arrive on Friday evening. Yay!

Stay Safe !!!

  1. Sharon,
    I sent a reply but just hit reply to blog….so if you want to post it for me that would be great. I am glad you are not hurt. So happy the girls are coming…AMY

  2. Oh, I hate to hear about falls on the ice! I’m glad you don’t have a concussion or back injury, but your body must be stiff and sore. No matter how careful you are, if you step wrong on the ice, you crash to the ground.

    Great idea, Lou, to put in the door upstairs. The view of the snowy woods is wonderful.

    Off to check out the diabetes blog.

    • I was lucky. It could have been much worse. I still rode the new bike yesterday, but will limit exercise to stretching and yoga today.

  3. (Here is the comment Amy wanted to add – it is a good story!)

    As you may remember, a while back, I told you I was walking around the pool on the decking and did not notice that when I thought I was walking on the deck with no problems, I happened to be walking on solid crystal clear ice which I did not see. Both feet went out from under me, legs up in the air and landed on my back hitting my head just like you did on the deck. I was very lucky I didn’t crack my head or hit it so hard to cause real damage…or hurt my back….of course I have never been the same since……mentally….
    The next day, very sore back and massive feelings of stupidity…no doubt from the excessive laughter from the dogs and the squirrels. I think they posted the video on YouTube …it made the rounds throughout all of the animals on the mountain who seem to be able to walk just fine on the ice. To this day, I think they still snicker at me…AMY
