Calling in sick (for my foot)

No pic today, because the only one I could provide would be a lump on my foot. Yuck. I’m not sure what I did, but something is really hurting in the top of my foot. Almost feels like one of the tiny little bones is broken, though I can’t remember doing anything that would have caused it. I do know that it hurts, and is swollen, so I decided to give it a rest today. It’s been bothering me for a few days, and getting no better.

If it doesn’t improve soon, I will have to get it looked at. For now, I will take a couple of days of rest (RICE=Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation — seems to be the accepted strategy for foot problems).

I can still write, however. That is as much a part of this project as the walking. So, for tomorrow, I will take my camera with me, and see if I can’t discover something new even with shorter jaunts. I am taking Ryan to a fall supper in Lorette, MB, just east of the city, so we should be able to find something. I’ve never actually been to Lorette, though I have seen the sign on the highway for as long as I can remember.
