The Christmas Tree Injury

...I snapped a bathroom mirror photo of myself upon returning from Church today...

...We were un-decorating the Church today and I was helping the organist take ornaments off of the children's tree when it fell over and the tip whacked me in the face - it smarted quite a bit and brought tears to my eyes - now I've got a pump-knot that obscures my vision a little bit - which is really annoying - and the beginnings of a black eye - sorry for the grainy photo - but it does make it a little less gruesome...

...so OUCH - y'all be careful out there if you're still un-decorating...

  1. You poor old stick! Make sure to get a good pic of the black eye when it really comes out.

    In the meantime keep on with the frozen peas...... Then make risotto with peas and lemon for dinner, it will make you feel much better.
