It seems like I am having the worst luck lately and that is why things have been rather quiet on my blog [no posts in over 10 days.] It is not because I have a hit a major wall in terms of writing – no, I don’t have writer’s block. Actually, it is quite the opposite. I have been steadily working on my book and I read what I have written so far in two days [over 110 A4 sized pages from start to finish.]
The reason why I haven’t posted is because I had another little health issue and this time it wasn’t my eye, it was my finger.
See, this is what happened! I heard the garbage truck singing its way around our neighborhood [yes, a singing garbage truck] and I made a big mad dash to the kitchen to get the garbage ready when I realized the recycles weren’t sorted. Then, when I was grabbing the tin can, I cut myself on the jagged edges. It didn’t look that serious. It was no bigger than a paper cut. I cleaned my wound and continued to go on about my day.
The next morning, I woke up and my finger was swollen nearly twice the size as it should be. I couldn’t bend it. I ended up going to the doctor who proceeded to give me a tetanus shot [causing major side effects] and antibiotics. The combination of both eventually worked. However, I could hardly type for a couple of days but luckily it wasn’t my left hand and I could edit a printed copy of my manuscript [which is still not completed yet, but it’s getting there.]
And the ironic thing of it all is we never eat canned food – we probably open a can two or three times a year.
Well, enough with my complaining, let’s get to the pictures. I know I am really behind in posting pictures of my 2015 day project, but I am on a mission to catch up!
