Not to good of a night. I ache all over. I am fine but realize how close I came to not being so fine. Thoughts of how easily an accident can happen - how I love this home and all that I am doing. Thoughts of how old chronologically I am when in reality I think of myself much younger and basically am doing most of what I did 20 years ago. So many thoughts - but then it comes down to mindfulness and being slower.
Seems I have always done things quickly. I need to slow down. I know what to do and now I need to do it.
Finally dawned on me what happened. How stupid of me. I was working on what you would call a small hill - going the wrong way - facing down. I should have been coming up the hill with my planting. So when I tumbled over and tried to catch myself with the hands - they were facing down and I fell on my face.
Right cheekbone and by eye is very swollen and bright red. Guess in the next few days I will have a black eye.
I always keep my cell phone in my pocket but really for a minute or so was stunned and could not think. I have someone who calls daily and usually hear from one of my children each day.
It is so much easier for me to write this online for my children and grandchildren to read then to call and answer phone calls. So - a lot in my daily life is going out over the world.
