Friday photo & question deux

  It's Friday again! And I couldn't be happier! I've had a normal week at work, not too stressful, so that's good! On the homefront, Maylee's been doing better and better with potty training. I tried a new Crock-Pot recipe out on Tuesday (for Tackle it Tuesday) and was a little disappointed with how the meatballs came out. I know what I'll do next time to make the dish a little better. Needed more spices and less water and less green pepper! I only put one green pepper in it, but because I was slow cooking it, that flavor permeated into things so much that it was like I was biting into a green pepper with every bite. I like green pepper as much as the next gal, but that was a bit too much! I like red and yellow peppers better, anyway (though they're more expensive...what's with that?)

   I haven't done any scrapping this week. Blah. I've just felt like sitting on my butt and watching TV in the evenings. I haven't even been reading in the evenings! Oh well, I get this way sometimes and have to get back in the groove. I have been taking pictures, though! That's one thing it hard NOT to do because Maylee's always doing something that I want to take a picture of! So here's my Friday Photo:
We've been teaching Maylee to kick with her feet. She's getting the hang of it. She'll lie on her belly and try to do the swim arms, but we're going to have to work on that more. She loves being in her little pool, but she also loves to get out and play in the yard. Then she gets filthy and stuff sticks to her and I have to rinse her off with the hose! I know she'll miss summer, but I am ready, oh so ready, for fall. Fall is my favorite time of the year anyway, even years when we're not coming out of a horrendous heat-wave summer. I love crisp evenings and warmer afternoons. If I had my way, it would be between 65 and 75 degrees all year. Okay, it could get up into the lower 80's on REALLY hot summer days. Yeah, if only!

   Okay, time for my Friday Question!

What's the worse injury you've ever had?

  I'm lucky enough to not to have broken any bones in my body...until 3 months before my wedding! Then I did a doozy! I was wearing big chunky shoes (the kind that were popular in the early 2000's) and fell down the stairs at Jefferson College. I was in a back hallway in the Fine Arts building (it was right after play practice...we were doing Quilters and I was one of the singers) and I fell down about 10 (concrete) stairs and broke my ankle. Come to find out, I shattered my ankle! It broke in about 20 places. And since it was in a back stairwell, I laid there yelling for someone to come help me for like 20 minutes. I almost passed out and all that jazz. And as I mentioned before, this was 3 months before my wedding. I almost had to go down the aisle on crutches, but I MADE myself get walking before then.

   I thought of this Friday question because last night I burned myself on a skillet I had just gotten out of the oven. Dummy, dummy, dumb, dumb! And I've done that before, too! My fingers feel much better this morning and I can even type with no problems!

   Hopefully I'll do some scrapping this weekend and have some pages to post next week. Have a great weekend if I don't "talk" to you before then!
