A little setback

Sorry.  I got six packages ready for mail today and accepted by the post office, but something happened to my knee and I can barely walk.  It's the same area that was affected by the fall two years ago, only worse.  It's the outside of my knee along the joint.  I need to stay off of it for another day and they will see me Friday.  If I don't finishing the packing and mail tomorrow, for sure they will go out Thursday.  I'm sorry.  I usually mail right away but once again, when I offer several types of items and orders are a combination, it takes me a while to double check that I have the right items in the right boxes.  I can't work on the new ones either because the printer is upstairs in the craft room and there is no way I can make the stairs.  Packing material is in the basement!  So is the Dove chocolate.  I'm screwed.
 
We didn't get canning done either because Mark was picking mushrooms all afternoon.  His grandfather and father were pickers and Mark shares the bounty with friends.  I remember his grandmother's house (she spoke little English) with strings of mushrooms drying to be put away for soups and ethnic dishes.  What a year for mushrooms.  Over the weekend he chopped the sheephead fine, sautéed with fresh garlic, diced sweet peppers and onions.  Wonderful.  Fabulous!  I ate a lot, also used the mix in an omelet. 
 
I'm chewing my Advil and following with a chocolate to kill the taste.  I missed walking this summer because of the two sprained ankles and now it looks like I won't be walking this fall either.  I just wanted everyone to know that I will be getting their orders out very soon.

Picking mushrooms sounds like a wonderful fall event, I hope you post photos of the mushrooms.

Take care Marly and don't walk to much. Did you have a walking stick? I use it a lot outside the house.
Today I was in the hospital for making photo's of my knee.
Hope you will feel much better soon.
Greetings Truus from Holland

Sorry to hear you are laid up Marly. Take care of yourself and hopefully you can do a little stitching while you are chair bound.

I am sorry about your knee my dear. Maybe talk to your doctor about pt? I am back in pt. Nerve pain. Stitch to distract!

Gosh Marly you have had your share this past year or so.
I know your customers understand packages not being mailed 'RIGHT AWAY' - I have always had the most understanding and accepting customers a person could ask for and I'm sure you do too.
Blessings and healing prayers

Ugh, it's so easy for a knee to go wrong (I'm always thinking, but I didn't do anything!). Take care of yourself and take it easy till the knee feels better.

This darn aging process! So sorry about your knee, Marly... it always seems to be one thing or another with us 60+ people, doesn't it?!
