Oh where to begin?

I have been MIA for a while........took a nasty fall in my kitchen on Thanksgiving morning.  I broke a toe and dislocated two others.  My right foot, which is connected to my bad right calf and knee!  Never fails.

I also happened to be carrying my sweet birdie, Pearlie, in the cage.  Pearlie landed behind me, the cage collapsed on her and she was trapped between two sides.   I almost flipped as I thought she was crushed.   I cried out and she made a tiny squeak.  She is just fine, thank God, but me, I hobbled up, realized I was bleeding, put an ice pack for maybe 10 minutes and continued with the turkey dinner.   Company was expected at 2 PM and this crowd is right on time.  Dinner was delicious, although I ate hardly nothing that day.  I lived on leftovers for the next four days!

I got through the day with limited assistance, and it took me three days to finish the cleanup and get my place back in order.  I thought Christmas would be a complete wash, but I do have a bit of decor up, a tiny tree, my Nativity, a few wreaths.  I hand made my cards this year, and thanks to a dear friend I had Christmas stamps and another dear friend mailed them for me.  Shopping was done online, and I do believe that is the way to go.   I feel well enough to do some baking, next weekend.  I like my Christmas goodies to be as fresh as can be.  I have no room in my freezer.

I tried uploading photos but no go.  This has set me back from getting a lap top.  I wonder if anyone can explain how I can get my smartphone to talk to my iPad ?  There is an option to load photos from a phone but when I clicked only an old header of mine came up.

I am enjoying all the Christmas-ing going on in Blogland.  As for me, I am just happy that I did not need to go to the ER, no surgery, and my sweet bird was OK.  It could have been a real disaster that day.

Thanks for stopping by and for all the sweet emails.  You guys are the best.

Merry Christmas!
