I was tempered to draw you a pic of myself today - would be really funny. Well, I can not paint good enough, so you just have to imagine:
I still wear a plastic-cast around my right ankle coz of my rupture. On the other leg I have a little wound from a mole cut out. Three more fresh cuts on my back side. And not to mention bites from mosquitos, lots of them. So you see my scatching a lot, too. Good luck I have holidays from now on and do not need to go to work.
Seems at the moment I am not in the mood to take pics. Nevertheless I enjoy the last days of summer as good as possible. My food these days are beautiful berries and a lot of fresh veggies. My hubby decided to cook this weekend. I just had a piece of a fresh blueberry-tart, yummi.
My right foot is getting into normal colour again, but it still hurts a bit. Walking is still very tiering for me.
I am reading a lot. And I painted two birdies today.
I am happy we are alone today at home. The construction workers will come again tomorrow.
I will have two doc appointments tomorrow, too. One for my foot and one for my regular skin check and perhaps operation.
I will visit limetrees after my skin - doc - appointment. I love to go there coz it is just on the opposite side of the street and someplace I do not go very often.
I have dreamt of travelling with the Transsib this year.
I talked with my sister about it.
She said she will come, too.
After our not so great adventure of living together (remember she left me with an ill cat, screaming each night, non functional heating and watersupply that could burst every moment, be careful, for a three weeks vacation at the seaside) I decided not to go on holidays with her.
Now my sister will go by plane to Moscow tomorrow to catch the Transsib.
I am sitting at home and will learn for my exams in September.
Just some days in Bulgaria in September to learn more about Bulgaria and than work again.
Today my right foot is back in normal shape. Well, I still have some problems with the orthese or how you call this thing I have to wear day and night for six weeks. It does not do great when I walk much - and I do not speak about miles and miles, but just about a little tour to get myself something to eat (less than one kilometer). I get sore spots where it is connected. And we still have the work at our bathroom. Today it drove me nearly crazy. Needed a lot of patience. Learn Lily, learn...
Things I usual do take more time than ever and I am tired so fast, I could sleep 24 hours day round.
Today we got our white - sometimes it just needs some no to an alternative you do not want.
and we got our new bathtube. Some more days and I can take a bath under a window and stars.
Today I decided to give up on the pain meds. I have now a little headache and my leg hurts still a bit, but it is o.k..
I was told that I will get the one-year-job nearby (1/2 hours drive away). Still have to wait until I get it in written form - that's when I can be sure, but it looks good. Sleeping in my own bed for a year, yeaahhh.
You perhaps know that white is not alltimes the same. There are so many variations. We are doing our bathroom at the moment coz the water from the shower came out on the other side of the wall and the only solution was a renovation. We want it white - a white with a bit in the direction of woolwhite. Today we were told that they do not get the white stuff. Tomorrow was the date to do the walls- so what? I decided not to go for the first solution coz I want to decide between two or three. Not just - this is here, you get it, it is a septic white - white is white o.k.? (That was what they told me first, but no, I am not so nice to say yes.)
You perhaps allready know that I do not like to take drugs aka meds.
Well, Ibuprofen made my days these last days.
My right foot gets more and more in shape again and the pain is bearable.
The colour is changing into the blue/red spectrum allready.
Temperatures dropped and there is a fizzy rain outside. A beautiful rain.
Love this weather at the moment.
Painted a whale today.
And some scarfes are waiting to be sewn, too. Love, love liberty fabric. They have really great bird prints in their autumn collection. Yesterday I saw a little skirt out of liberty fabric for the little girl of a friend. Easy peasy to sew for a six year old. Hope she will like her new skirt - it is in the mail allready.
My right foot - well, the cooling helped a lot and I added a pill of Ibuprofen 600 yesterday. Now my right ankle is 1 1/2 big as usual and it seems to get a bit of colour (red/blue), but I can still walk with just a little bit of pain.
I am cooking the soup for lunch today, back to my normal duties I guess.
... my mother would say. Dreaming is not good when you walk down a staircase, believe me.
Today I dreamed while shopping in a creative things shop and crusssshhh, down the staircase I fell. The lovely staff gave me cold towels and a first aid kit, thank you guys! And after some time I walked slowly to my bicycle to cycle back home. (Cycling went much better than walking, so I am back home now. Still a bit pain in my right foot, still some cool pad on my foot and hubby makes lunch coz I think I can not stand up long enough.)
Puuhh, high summer heat. I sweat and sweat. Just had a shower to get alive again after my little tour today.
First the interview - they will call next week and it is only for one year and I think I will have to fight to get the things I wanna to learn about. I said nevertheless that I want it when I get it coz it would be near home.
Then I did some sightseeing - pics soon. And I visited a friend and her family.
No free weekend for me. I am on a three days retreat to learn for my exams. Thanks God I can sleep in my own bed at night.
Next week I will have two job interviews. So I am curious where I will work soon.
I hope to get a permanent position somewhere. I am working for years now only in short-term positions and they are really great to learn, but I am getting a bit stressed by the changes that come with them. The great side: I see so much beauty everywhere - it is a shame I can not take pics and drive at the same time.
I stay since last week in a new place. We have an institution near my workingplace for people with mental problems and they have there working possibilities. One part is something like a sort of very low budget hotel. And there I stay now.
It needed a bit to get used to. Well, I had no other reasonable priced solution. And the room and breakfast is great. Fresh baked rolls each moring. I started to eat breakfast again.
