Never Fails

I can't win for losing. I finally find that putting cayenne pepper around my pepper plants keeps the varmints from eating them. Well it must have sprinkled last night and washed it away and now I am down to three plants out of 60 and they finished off my Sweet 100 tomato plants. D*mn varmints.

Then I decided on Sunday I was going to get up in the morning and walk from my house to the church and back, which is only about 1/2 mile, but it's better than nothing. Unlucky for me I am a major klutz. That is a klutz that has never had more than a broken pinkie toe or been on crutches. Let me start by telling you that the walk on the way back totally sucked. I was walking along minding my own business and thought I would walk in the grass while a car passed and that's when it happened....I stepped on the edge of the pavement and hurt my ankle. I heard it POP and then thought I was going to throw up right there. I stood there for a minute trying to collect myself before I finished walking home.

What was I to do, call my Hubby or daughter and get them out of bed to come and get me, NOT. I would have never heard the end of that. I would have been the joke of the day. So I ever so gracefully made it back home...finally. My ankle is swelled a little and it has a bruise on the outside and a mark on the front but hey, no doctor and no crutches. And I am going to walk again tomorrow morning...I hope. If I stop I am afraid I won't start back up again.

I love walking early in the mornings around 7ish. My third shift daycare kiddos are still sleeping and right now no others are here that early....the birds are singing and it's very peaceful. Next week will be a different story. My little "SS" will be back and I will have to walk earlier.
