Thankful Thursday

This week's three things for which to be thankful, in no particular order, and with photos, too.

1.  The music of NewFound Road.  A bluegrass band...well, wait a minute...they're bluegrass, but with a little gospel, some barn-burnin' guitar riffs, and harmonies that border on barbershop quartet.  And I mean that in a good way.  Check em out on the CMT website.  Good stuff.

2.  That in the middle of winter, with snow on the ground, I can google "cottage gardens" and find photos like this that make me dream of spring...and turning my icky backyard into something like this.

3.  And last, but not least, that I wasn't seriously injured in my fall from the ladder.  The radiology report came back negative for broken bones, with an official diagnosis of "sprained wrist, bruised coccyx, and multiple contusions to the left lower extremity (thigh), both upper extremities (hands, arms and elbows), sternum and chin".  Here's one of those contusions being examined by Dr. Louis.  (Photo's blurry because I took it with my phone.) 


  1. Oh. My. God. You're lucky to be alive, girl! Man, that had to hurt. Still hurts, I'm sure. Just stay focused on that cottage garden. It'll come sooner or later.

  2. That's pretty impressive. Glad nothing is broken. I see Dr. Cat is on the job :-)

  3. I am so glad you didn't break anything important (other than your pride).

  4. Yikes...that is one big bruise.

    I'm going to be more careful with our ladders. They are all junk, because when it comes to spending $$$ ladders are the last thing you think about buying.

    Hope you are back to wallpapering and painting in now time at all.
