Today I bought a beautiful hat. After finding out what medication I've been taking, the nurse practictioner strongly advised me to buy a big floppy sun hat. Apparently one of the side effects to my meds is photosensitivity. This explains why I've been burning so easily recently. Here I thought I'd imagined my previous "don't burn, don't tan" skin. Now I do both very easily. So I took the NP's advice and bought a beautiful bright coloured hat with a large brim. It's truly lovely!
Unfortunately, while I was at the mall, I fell and injured both knees. That part sucks. But what didn't suck was the reaction of the lovely people in my life. J took great care of me and came by to check on me later. Veronica fussed over me, and my dad brought me junk food and insisted I ice my knees. Steve's parents won the award for best taking care of injured Grace though. They took us to the local conservation area for a picnic. There in the middle of the city is a beautiful oasis. I haven't been there in years and was thrilled by the beauty. I couldn't do much walking, so I just sat on the bench and soaked in the beauty. There is a small man-made lake with a couple of islands. When we arrived it was raining and shrouded in mist. Oh so gorgeous! I sat and drank in the view and felt so much better. It was amazing!
Where was my wonderful husband? The dear man has gone to Ottawa for the weekend, so I am on my own. It's amazing what disasters happen when he goes away. Last year it was a car accident. Hopefully a fall will be the worst of it this year. So I am extra thankful for all of the caring I have received today. I would appreciate prayer that I will be able to walk tomorrow. Good night!
