Project 365 ~ Week 21: The Joys of Bad Knees and a really GOOD Sister in Christ!

Sunday, May 20

This was my day…..ALL DAY!

Needless to say I did NOT make it to church. I did manage to hobble to the table for a meal or two and make it to the restroom!


Monday, May 21

As ordered by almost every one I know, I was obedient and went to the doctor. I have had knee issues in the past but this was by far the most painful episode and it really left me more than a bit inconvenienced. So I was eager to get in the doctors office to try get some relief from the pain and get back on my feet again.


After a few X-Rays and a cortisone shot I was back in the car heading back home. It seems my knees are as old as I am and can get a bit disagreeable with old age. I have very little cartilage and the doctor said I had probably twisted my knee in the wrong directing and that inflamed my meniscus. What ever it was it sure was painful. I was thankful that he had the tools and the knowledge to get me back on the road to walking without excruciating pain! Well maybe not excruciating pain but it really hurt!

Y’all good fiends are just the best. When Skoots1mom found out I was out of commission she went into action. She showed up at my house on Sunday evening and I was set for dinner for several nights. Is she the best or what!

We had pork roast, green beans from Skoots, the DD cleaned and cooked the corn as well as got everything else warmed up and on the table!


It was good y’all!

I was feeling better on Tuesday. I was able to put a bit of weight on my knee but not much. I did manage to get up and empty the dishwasher. Sara posted a picture last week, commenting on how often she unloads her dishwasher only to have enough dishes in the sink to practically fill it back up again. Well here ya go Sara, it’s been emptied and then practically filled right back up again with dirty dishes…yes it happens in every household I think!


It was a big day for me and the Hubs today. It was our 30th wedding anniversary. It was kind of a downer being incapacitated with a bum knee but the Hubs rose (pun intended) to the occasion and came home with three dozen of these beauties for me. You can click here to read a post I did in honor of the occasion!

These flowers were just the thing to make my day!


Skoots also brought over some BBQ & buns and some really good watermelon. It was dinner number two on Skoots again.


Wednesday, May 23

I have been putting my immobility to good use and have made several crocheted dishcloths. I put them in the kitchen drawer and the hubs came in and asked me “Did you mean to put these in here?”


I was feeling much better by Wednesday, enough that I felt able to get out of the house for a bit. I called up Skoots and she met me for lunch and then we went over to the produce market and I loaded up on fresh veggies. I got tomatoes, peaches, bananas, strawberries, cantaloupe, cucumbers, green beans and new potatoes.

Truly a southern classic…they were really good!

Clearly I need to re-read the instruction on the new toaster. My bread was frozen so I pushed the little button that said frozen on the front of the toaster. Not quite a burnt toast disaster but close. It was still a good tomato sandwich despite the extra crispy bread.

My tomatoes on May 5


Look how big they are now!


One of the things I love about gardening is how surprising and random it can be. I was out visiting my flowers and veggie this morning and I notices this bright orange peaking thought in the middle of my herb garden. Sometime you just never know where or how things take root.


I love these bright purple pansy's. I am t4esting my resolve and bought a hanging basket. The trick will be if I can remember to keep it watered through the summer. I have placed it right outside the sunroom window so it is directly in my line of site. Out of site is the curse of death round here…let see it I can keep it alive!


My mint is finally going strong. I had to replant it, the first seedling did to make it. Sometime it makes it through the winter but for some reason this spring it did not come back so I had to get a few more plants. I love going out and snipping off a few sprigs and keeping them at the ready for my ice tea. I love the fragrance of mint floating from my glass, it just makes the glass so much more refreshing!

I wish y’all could scratch and sniff because it smell really good!


Well that was my week! I hope everyone is enjoying the first week of summer vacation!

Looking forward to lots of picture of all the fun we will be having over the summer!

For more P365 y’all head over to Sara’s  and link up!

Blessings and let the summer fun begin!

Happy belated anniversary! Our 33rd was yesterday.

I'm drooling over all the food photos this week! :)

Trust your knee is doing better. It's no fun being incapacitated like that!

And I luuuuurve all your garden shots! I could almost smell the mint :)

Have a great week!

Hope you knee is better, understand. I started dislocation mine when I was 11 & have had problems & two knee surgeries. Love the dish clothes & the food shots were to die for, made me hungry & I just ate. Have a great week.

I love Skootsmom :) That food looks great! Glad your knee is doing better.

Love your flower pics! I sure hope you remember to water that thing!

You need to label this post as "Paula dean inspired" with all the butter :)

I feel your pain - I spend most of my days with my knee in that position... ice is its best friend
