Almond blossoms, near town....
I don't think I've mentioned it, but I have been hobbling around lately. Yesterday I stopped hobbling and started staggering around like a little old lady after a long ride on a scooter.
My hip hurts.
Going uphill, and sometimes down hill, and now, as of yesterday, when I go upstairs too.
I went to the medical center today.
It sounds positively medieval. I now have a little regime of pills to take every day, and instructions not to overdo it. That probably excludes the walks in the mountain I take most days.
However, this isn't serious, rest, ice - oh that's funny too, we don't have a fridge, so obviously not a freezer either...now everyday we will have to go round to my local corner store and decide if we will have squid, or snails, or octopus, or mussels for dinner. I will kindly defrost them on my hip, and then we're paella bound!
If all this fails, they'll inject some wonder drug into the depths of my hip an prest-o bang-0 all should be well, forever!
The second thing? Eldest is having her sleepover birthday party tonight. Should be long, loud and tiring....though it turns out that four of the girls can't come, so there will only be 9 people here.
Not so bad.
Oh..sorry there's a third.
Youngest came home from school today, "Mommy, I had to draw you in class today. You know? You're really hard to draw."
Then brightening, "It turned out really well; though I didn't get all the wrinkles in."
