With all that plus my laundry accomplished by mid-afternoon today, I decided to walk over to the mall for some groceries. That was a big mistake! It's still very icy. I had my Yak Trax on my boots, but stepped on a bit of glare ice while crossing the street and fell again ... fifth time this winter, dammit! ... and did a face plant against the edge of the sidewalk.I've got a fat lip and a loose tooth. You can't see the cuts inside my upper lip in this picture, but believe me, they are there and they HURT! I can't imagine what my mouth is going to look like in the morning when I go to work ... I facilitate Falls Prevention workshops for seniors, it's a little embarrassing to admit how often I've fallen this winter! Anyway, I was closer to home than the mall, so decided to limp back home instead of grocery shopping.I worked on another unfinished project ... a gansey cardigan ... for the rest of the afternoon, and will probably finish the right side this evening. That will just leave the sleeves and ribbed bits at the back vent and front openings for next weekend. Yay for me! Hope y'all had a happy and fall-free weekend!

... roughed out a painting. I called it "See No Evil". The woman in the painting is all twisted up and feverish ... just like me! I should have stopped there, but you can't have "See No Evil" without ...... "Hear No Evil" and ...... "Speak No Evil", so I HAD TO rough out two more paintings. I'm SO sick! Now I've got three partially finished paintings staring at me! Oh my head! Oh the fever! OH THE PAIN! But today is another day, and I have the power to overcome this annual affliction. I do. I'm POSITIVE I do. I just have to apply myself to make 2009 the year I finally beat the February Fever. So ...... I'll get back to y'all ...
