Winter in Connecticut

SNOWSo I haven’t written anything here in ages.  And the primary reason is that I slipped on the ice and fell, wrenching my ankle and breaking a bone in my foot (not to mention my head).  I’m recuperating nicely now, but have been trapped inside (mostly upstairs) for the better part of two months.  Add to that over twenty-one total inches of snow here over that same time period and it’s been a real Connecticut winter for me.  What a way to acquaint myself with the joys of ice and snow.  Or maybe I should say not acquaint myself, since I’ve been mostly watching it fall from the windows.  (The ice that felled me was before the really bad snow hit). boot

Anyway, I’ve now had the fire department and ambulance service come to rescue me  (they were awesome!)  And I got to spend the better part of a day in the ER — not something I’d wish on
anyone.  And now they joys of PT and hobbling around the house.  But thanks to my new doctor, I’ve got a brand new fashion statement.  And I have to say that there’s something to be said for a cozy fire and the snow falling outside.  Just don’t ask me to walk on it!  At least not until I have a solid ankle again!

And hopefully, by then, I’ll be seeing spring flowers!
