I hurt myself

Not on the quad and not too badly. One of the big rocks on the bank was unstable from the flood we had on New Years and dislodging the blackberry vines made it even more unstable. It broke loose and slammed into my shin. OUCH! The good news is that it didn't break my leg and all I got was a pretty gnarly abrasion. Playing (I mean working) with the quad made it so much easier because it would have taken so many more trips with the wheely bucket than using the little trailer. I even took Jo for a little ride. He seemed to enjoy it, or at least he didn't try to jump off. I then made the first strawberry rhubarb pie of the season...rhubarb out of my garden...strawberries not there yet. I went downtown to purchase some fertilizer for the fruit trees and purchased some bedding plants for the garden. Sara made a guest appearance for dinner down at the station. We had smoked wild turkey that Tom got when he took the boat down to Mom & Charlie. Mmmmm...it was the best turkey EVER!!! Of course they got a call before dinner was through, so Sara and I cleaned up the kitchen and took our piece of the pie home to watch "Twilight" again. I think they have converted me to team Edward...what with Angie's "New Moon" poster and watching "Twilight" like a kajillion times. I still like Jacob, but not as much since I finished "Breaking Dawn" Kind of creeped me out! I am reading some books that are of a more spiritual nature at the moment, after finishing the latest from Debbie Macomber. I believe reading should be fun as well as informative...else why do it??? Several projects up for sewing, but none started. I think I'm going to bag the "My Design" contest at PR...too much pressure to perform on a deadline reight now...I have other things pressing, like yard work and getting some much needed summer clothes done up. Tom is going on a fishing trip in a couple weeks, so I should have some more time to sew. Of course I signed up for some major overtime shifts too during that period, so we'll see who feels like sewing! Also longing to get over to LaPine and play...Kokanee fishing on Paulina lake sounds like a good time to me! Better get busy on the chores so I can get some play time!
