The Ice Man Cometh...
It's just not a good thing when you look out your window and the world looks shiny and glazed over! We had a terrible ice storm settle upon us yesterday. And so what did I do, or try to do? At dinner time (not earlier in the day) I attempted to go out to retrieve the mail from the mail box...at the curb. Have you ever seen the cartoon of a person slipping on a banana peel? That was me slipping on the ice, but I had only taken one step outside my garage. Yes, it did look shiny and glazed. Yes, for some reason, I did think I could make it to the grass. And, yes, my feet flew up in the air and I landed on my butt and then my head hit the concrete!. Luckily, I think, I had my hood on so I had a small bit of padding on my head. I'm okay but I do have a bit of a headache this morning! You would think my 50 year old self would have been smarter than this!
But I did get 3 1/2 layouts done yesterday! YAY!
P.S. As my DD posted in her comment, yes indeed, she did suggest that I take my cell phone with me when I attempted to go to the mailbox. That was using her noggin! Fortunately, I didn't have to use it. But it would have been a sight to see me, flat on my back, trying to get back into the garage. I had no traction! I couldn't push back into the garage. I couldn't stand up. I finally was able to roll over and crawl the few inches back to dry concrete. What a sight that must have been! Thank you OctoTracy!
