Crippled Gardner. 2016-05-02

AnkleBootI feel as though I’m a walking hazard in the garden this year. I’m sure the neighbors are wondering what the heck is wrong with that woman?

In February, I broke the ribs and on my right side and suffered some whiplash due to an unfortunate fall, so when working outside I have a rib wrap and a neck brace. I have tendonitis and arthritis in my wrists and hands so I wear wrist wraps and hand and thumb support braces. I’m allergic to plants and dust so I also wear a dust mask especially when mowing. When planting, I wear pads to protect my knees, sunglasses to protect my light sensitive eyes, SPF 50 sunscreen, a hat to shield me from the sun because I am so fair, and bug spray to fend off bites. I always wear long pants when working in and cleaning out the flower beds to keep down on scratches from rosethorns and the occasional spider bite. Let’s not forget the orthotics in my garden clogs to treat planters fasciitis.  As if all that is not bad enough, I turned my ankle by tripping on some fence edging today and now have a boot on my foot and am walking with a cane.

I’m now sitting on the couch with my foot up, watching The First 48 about another dang murder, and writing my blog while my Fitbit assumes I am asleep because it’s not gaining any more steps today for sure.  My goodness, if it were Halloween, I could rent myself out to a haunted house. Boo! … Sandy
