Daybook Entry --- Thurs., Sep. 27


[Note: I meant to publish this on Thursday, but had technical difficulties with my computer recognizing my camera. I had help from a fellow blogger, Rick, today and reinstalled my camera software into my computer, but then my computer started a loud beeping. I think the fan went out, so I turned my computer off. I still don't know if the reinstall worked. When Bob got home, he graciously let me download my camera software on his computer and it works like a charm. Now I can post my photo showing my life yesterday. So, here it is, a day late. When it rains, it pours--and it's doing that outside now too.]

Outside my window Thursday…it's windy, sunny, but partly cloudy, about 84 degrees.

I am thinking…about my healing process from my bad fall last Friday when I broke my face.

I am thankful…for being alive.

In the kitchen…I am learning how to eat a wired jaw diet. Nothing solid can pass these lips until the wires and rubber bands come off.

I am wearing…comfy sleep shirt...I won't be going out for a number of days.

I am creating…my blog.

I am going…nowhere until my face heals. I don't want to reinjure it.

I am wondering…when I can get the jaw wires off so I can talk normally, eat normally.

I am reading… “The Sanctuary” by Raymond Khoury. 

I am hoping…my face heals quickly and that I learn how to clean my mouth soon. Bob bought me a child's toothbrush that I will try to use tonight.

I am looking forward to…being healthy again, walking and hiking again, going to Australia.

I am learning…how to take care of my jaw.

Around the house…Bob has been doing housework and shopping to let me recover from my trauma and subsequent surgery.

I am pondering…how will my teeth and glasses get fixed before we go to Australia.

A favorite quote for today…
Though we may travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we will find it not.   ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
One of my favorite things…is traveling.

A few plans for the rest of the week: not much. Heal, blog, read, watch TV, wash dishes, stretch.

A peek into my day…
Bowie is between my feet on the recliner footrest. Sunnie is next to me in the other recliner. Such sweeties!

  1. That sounds like most of my summer, minus the jaw being wired shut and being able to do dishes (which I just recently can do again). It will come, so take the time to heal and indulge in those things you are able to do but never seem to have the time to do. Gentle hugs . . . xxxx

  2. Having cats nearby always makes one feel better!

    1. So true, so true.

      Of course any pet can do the same...dogs, birds, ferrets. I'm sure I'm leaving something out. LOL.

    2. Yeah, but cats are just better :)
