Wishing I had a big butt

Right now I am wishing I had a big butt.  Why?  Because if I did, my butt might not be so sore.  This morning as I went out to clean the freezing rain off my car I slipped on my front sidewalk and down I went, landing on my bony butt.  My flailing hands prevented my head from hitting the cement too hard, but now my left wrist is sore too.  I guess the good news is I did not hurt my back….

The worst part was, my accident could have been avoided.  I had given myself plenty of time to get to my dentist appointment just in case the roads were bad.  The forecast had predicted freezing rain, but when I looked out my window, the sidewalk appeared to be just wet and not icy.  I also should have chosen safety over fashion; I was wearing my cute boots with very little tread on them, much better suited for bare sidewalks.

 

I am hoping that by tomorrow I will feel better, as I am tired of sitting (more like standing or lying) around doing nothing all day.

November weather is not usually ideal for gardening in Ottawa

November usually brings cold, damp weather to our Ottawa area with my gardening business put to bed for the winter.  This week however, the weather forecast is awesome…

I will have to find something to do outdoors as the temperature is forecasted to reach a balmy 17 degrees Celsius (63 for you Fahrenheit fans)  This is a perfect temperature for puttering around in the garden, with no bugs to annoy me. Raking, mulching, bulb (more, because you can never have too many) planting…hmmm, where do I start?  The more I get done this week while the weather is nice, the less there will be to do in the spring.
