12 May 2015

I have decided to use dates  and / or title if exciting instead of entry numbers.

As a lot of you already know I was in a near fatal car crash in September of 2013.
I am finally walking again with the use of a cane which will probably be my friend for the rest of my life. Over the past two weeks I have been practicing to drive also.
The accident was my fault, I ran off the road and hit a tree bouncing off another tree and back to the original tree. I don't remember any thing much except when then pulled my leg to get the bones back in the skin and them telling me I was going on a chopper, the rest is blank. My husband was out of town and when I finally awoke he told me that my face had been torn open (look just as good as new), I had broken almost all of my ribs and that my lower right leg had been broken and poked thru the skin. Later I was to find out that my leg was broken in 47 places and some of the pieces of bone were missing. After 7 surgeries I am walking with my cane. There is pain no matter what I do with that leg but I am grateful that I am alive and can walk at all and that I did not loose that leg, cause there was talk of it.

Now I will explain why I shared that story. Yesterday was my first excursion out into the world alone in my new car. FREEDOM for the first time in 20 months.
I drove to town with many errands I wanted to do that I know my hubby would not and could not because he was working. I am retired now so I can have fun and enjoy life.
My first stop was to take myself to a movie and I saw Age of Adeline and it was wonderful. A great sci fi love story.
Then off to other errands but my leg was swelling fast as it will probably always do. I had intentions of going to WalMart the only place in town to get any art supplies so I could get some cheapy paint to do Gelli Plate art today. Well that didn't happen and today I am very tired so I will wait for paint tomorrow but that's ok I am glad to be home today because FedEx is supposed to deliver my new kiln. Where we live the electric is run on a turbine so it fluctuates and I could not have my big kiln running so I ordered a new on that is very very tiny. I will be able to do glass fusing, some small pieces of pottery and raku and also PMC. So I am eagerly awaiting that. It will probably be at the end of the day so I wont be able to try it out until Thursday. Because tomorrow is another excursion into town for art supplies and groceries. ( the best part of being handicapped is you get to ride around in the carts at stores and that at least makes it worthwhile).

Today I will do housecleaning which takes me about 4x longer than most and then Gelli Plate with what I have.

Later I will try my first post or a picture of what I accomplished with my Gelli Plate.  Please take note of the TRY.

That's all for today. A very boring and artless entry.
