Why Today's Post is Late
I usually write my posts ahead of time and pre-schedule for publication, but yesterday afternoon I discovered I'd overdone the standing or the sitting or the walking (barefoot) or something and had an uncomfortably swollen foot and ankle.
It was obviously time for RICE: rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Works for me 90% of the time and usually saves me a trip to the doctor (who invariably recommends RICE).
So there I was, stretched out on the couch with my foot propped up on pillows, watching television and not writing a blog post.
This morning I had priority errands and a quick trip to the dentist.
I'm just full of excuses, aren't I?
Now I'm at the computer cleaning out my e-mail and getting this quick post up, and I'm noticing my foot is aching again. Yep, ankle's a little puffy. Time to get the ice pack. But first...
The Fabulous Sugar Doll Blogger Award
This adorable award was passed on to me on June 17th by Sugar (appropriate, yes?) at her blog, Sugar's Randomocities. This award is for bloggers that cheer us up. Thanks bunches to Sugar for including me on her list. She is fun and entertaining, so you might want to pay her a visit soon.
Some bloggers are really good at cheering us up and on, giving encouragement, sharing ideas, educating us, and sometimes just plain being silly. Those with valuable information to share are worth a whole bunch, and a blog post that makes me laugh is a super bonus.
I pass the award on to these four blogs I visit on a regular basis for cheerful information and occasionally a laugh-out-loud moment. Nice folks:
Elspeth Antonelli at It's A Mystery
Cheryl Miller Thurston at Scattershot
Elizabeth Spann Craig at Mystery Writing is Murder (Yes, I know you've received this award before, Elizabeth, but that's because you really deserve it -- we're heaping sugar on you, babe).
I hope you all have a great weekend!
