I’ve Lost My Mind…

Dogs woke me up with rousing barking this morning at 7:30 a.m. You all know how I am, I walk into walls at that time of the morning… I stumbled to the back door to let them out and saw this:

brrrr 002

So naturally I had to go get my camera and walk outside to take a photo to share with you all.  I came back in, turned on the computer went to check the weather and this is what I saw:

1.7.2010 004 This is just so not right.  And I not only went out in this to take a picture to share with you all, I went out in a pair of sweatpants, my house shoes and a sweatshirt I threw on so’s not to scare the cows  into early labor, I am trying to type this with this:

brrrr 005

That is not my ash cup nor my cigarettes but was not awake enough to crop them out but, yep, those are my fingers taped together.  I smashed them day before yesterday, went to the doc yesterday and nothing is broken but they taped them this way because they weren’t sure until they got the x-ray report yesterday.  I can go to bandaids instead of this bulky bandage when I clean them later but let me tell you it is a bitch trying to type like this.  Talk about being a hunt and pecker…

Just wanted to let you all know how much I loved you… and I will really show you how much I love you by taking pictures of my fingers when I re-dress  them later… after I get up again…

I’ve fed the critters, brought in a load of wood, stoked the fire and now I’m going back to bed.

That sunrise is fantastic! I'd say that was worth gettig up early for. We have had really cold temps here too. Several days of cold-weather warnings to alert parents, pet owners and the homeless. Glad you're fingers were not broken.

Hey we have the same weather up here in Oregon-I had an orange glow through the curtain as I got dressed this morning (yep the ungodly hour of 7:20).

So was the weather report wrong or are you impervious to cold? It is not that cold here..more sweatshirt weather.

Your fingers look Painful!!

Hetty the sunrise was beautiful but dang it is cold. All our indoor babies were up in the blankies with us until we got up.

Tina the weather report was not wrong. I meant it was wrong to be that cold in Oklahoma. We are not supposed to get above 18 F. today and the wind will be blowing so the chill factor will be in the toilet. It's a pocket of arctic air that is hanging out over us and not moving very quick. And yes the fingers did hurt but they are doing better this morning but they look u.g.l.y.

Does anything ever go easy for you?! Sorry about the fingers. Holy cow! Hope you slept a little longer and that life was a little nicer when you woke up the second time :)

Caution, I'm a klutz... you know the old poem, "Monday's child is fair of face, Tuesday's child is full of grace..." I was born on a Tuesday. So, tongue in cheek, that explains a lot...

Caroline I was wondering if you were in the part of the UK that has had huge amounts of snow earlier when they showed pictures of on the national news this evening. They are predicting 5 F. here (-15 C.) tonight with wind chill of -15 F. (-26 C.) and tomorrow won't be much better with temps not expected to get out of the 'teens tomorrow.

Hey, Laura, are you all getting some snow tonight?

Reddirt Woman said...

And Caroline not so much accident prone as I do a lot of things. If I just sit around I don't get whacked.

Woman, you have got to stop abusing yourself like that!!!
I can't imagine typing with two finger tied up like that. There would be all kinds of extra letters in there. tee hee
