Fortunately, nothing other than a tiny bit of pain in the jaw for a few minutes. "I don't like it," I said to the Husband as we drove to the produce stand.
"You wouldn't like being a boxer then," he said.
DAYS 47 to 60 with TILDA-HILDA
Did you wonder if Tilda-Hilda and I had stopped riding for the year? Not at all. We're been doing things a bit differently. Three Saturdays ago was the the last time Tilda-Hilda and I went out on the back roads. Since then, we've been sticking to our neighborhood and an occasional ride to downtown, as my left knee recuperates.
Most of our riding had been pedaling three blocks back and forth to Godmother Pat, once or twice a day. She had a horrible accident in July that resulted in the loss of the tips of her middle finger and thumb. So, I've been going over to bug her. She's doing quite well and her hand is slowly but surely healing.
This past week, Tilda-Hilda and I increased our distance, finding longer ways to get to Godmother Pat's house or our house. To make sure I don't decide that Tilda-Hilda and I must go beyond our neighborhood, I wear open-toed sandals. Soon, we will be out on the back roads again.
COUNTY FAIR ENTRIES
That was one of my entry's in last year's county fair's photo competition. The photo of the Husband acting silly won me a blue ribbon, which had been the goal (winning a blue ribbon) every year for the last eight or nine years.
This year I waited until the last minute to register my entries to this year's county fair. Thank goodness for online registration. I took the plunge and entered three photos in the advanced division, which is my first time in this division. My works will be competing with those of semi-professionals. We shall see how that goes.
I'm also entering three fresh and two dry floral arrangements, banana bread, and a multi-colored beaded memory wire wrap bracelet. I have a vague idea about what I want for all of those things. Okay, not really for the floral arrangements. I'd like to add macadamia nuts to banana bread, if I can find the nuts. As for the bracelet, I started searching thrift shops for beaded necklaces to take apart. We shall see how all that goes, too.
That's a bit of what has been happening with me lately. How about yourself?
