La Fourchette's Festival of Lights - A Little Bit of Bling

This is where my watch is in the hospital under observation:


There I was, walking along, minding my own business when I turned a corner and ... bam!  The heel of one of my very cute and very fashionable little bottines slipped on an errant leaf and just like that I was down.  Of course, I caught my fall by sticking my hand out in a typically instinctive move...and as effective as that little reflex was in softening my fall, *that* hand happened to also be the hand upon which I wear my watch...worn rather loosely like a bracelet.  

That's right...instead of *my* face being mashed into the stone walkway, it was the face of my watch that took the grit in its teeth.  Yup, one of those fancy-schmancy watches that lasts a life time. ouch.  Now it's on life-support in the Hospital For Fine Watches Worn By Clumsy Women.  

Fingers crossed. 

I'm at an art fair today.  Send your good thoughts that the cards are a hit!  Of course, I've no idea how long I'll be there...uhhhh, no watch!

Enjoy the weekend.

Sorry about your watch and I hope it can be repaired.

Seriously, I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself! Recently, I got out of our car and was walking on a curb near where the car tire was and I slipped and fell flat on my knees! I scraped them pretty good. One thing I've noticed as I age, falls like that one or any for that matter really seem to shake me up now! It was a week later that I suffered a soreness in that leg and arm!

Glad you weren't hurt!

Good luck at the fair! Good thoughts headed your way.

Kris, many thanks for your good thoughts! They - along with many others - worked! It was a lovely day and cards sold! yippppeeee.

Now down to business: I have two words for you for any falls - arnica montana. This little homeopathic remedy is a miracle-worker! I started popping those little suckers tout de suite and no bruising! None. Zip. Nada. Rien...du tout! I hope the need doesn't arise again, but just in case...keep this handy.

ciao,
leslie
