30 MAY, 2017

Lots going on in my world here on the front range. We have had some of the most beautiful back porch weather for playing with the mud kitchen to knitting. Then a foot of snow fell, broke LOTS of tree limbs in the neighborhood, (we didn't loose any tree limbs, just a clothes line...again).
Then it was off to Chicago for my son's wedding! Beautiful wedding, beautiful happy couple! The weather in Chicago was fantastic as well, able to walk around Evanston, Lake Michigan and Northwestern University. On way into the ceremony, not sure what happened but my ankle turned and I broke my foot...ugh! I was not wearing heels and had nothing to drink. I walked on this for three days, returning home, (in a car). Yesterday, I was temporarily splinted and today will be casted for 6 weeks! Ugh again.
Saddest part for me was I could not dance with my son at his wedding, we had practiced that afternoon to be sure all was right. I was also unable to take pictures, due to being hard to get around
unnoticed. Only my family knew this had happened, I did not want the bride or any guest to know and it worked. 
So the future , at least the next 6 weeks , looks like a lot of knitting and lying around for me. Have to look at the silver lining in these situations;-}
