Challenging Times



It has been a challenging month. I sit and  type with my right hand.arm in a cast, which is not an easy task.

I was moving lambs, from the corral to the pasture, the electro-net needed to be moved, to close off the entry way to keep them put. They were busy eating hay on the other side of the pasture, so I figured it was safe to move it, but as I started walking it over, one of the lambs looked up and seen me and came running, with all of the other lambs following behind. I started running to try and beat them, so they wouldn't be able to get through the opening. Unfortunately, running in chore boots isn't easy, my boot got caught in the electro-net, which stopped me in my tracks, and I went flying forward. I knew instantly I had a serious hand/thumb injury. I did manage to get the electro-net where it needed to be, before heading to the house to inform the girls I was making a trip to the emergency room. 

Several weeks later, I am in a cast, and waiting to see what is next. I am hopeful, no surgery will be needed, and physical therapy will be enough.

Farm accidents happen, I am grateful it wasn't worse. I have went over, what I could  have done differently, in hindsight I would have just let the lambs have their way, but life doesn't work that way.

It has been frustrating not being able to do what needs to be done, thankfully, I do have plenty of help. 
I miss not being able to spin or knit, especially this time of year, with the colder weather and shorter days. It is my go to....there will be no handmade Christmas gifts this year!
