I'm doing much better the last few days and get to wear this life-saving splint. It prevents me from moving my wrist. Last night, by reaction, I tried catching a ball that was thrown in my direction and I bent my wrist in the splint. It was terribly painful. I think I'll keep this thing on for the next 7 months, because I don't want to feel that again. I've been adjusting pretty well to life, I've only got stuck in 2 shirts, so that happened. I have to apply a new band-aid every day to the incision, but that's really it. I have 4 stitches that will come out on October 2nd. I've been spoiled by friends and family this past week. Meals, babysitting, prayers, and more meals. They've made it way too easy on me. So THANKS!!!
|These ladies brought us an awesome meal and then joined us for an evening of much-needed social hour, (along with their husbands!)|
James and I had tickets to go to the Husker game this past Saturday, and we weren't going to let a lame wrist stop us from going!
So I wore a long-sleeve shirt because it was new and I didn't think it was going to be that hot. Well check out that awesome tan-line above.
James recently went dove hunting with some buddies and ended up with a few birds. He grilled them up and we had them for supper one night. I was certainly nervous to try it because I've never had dove before and I had no idea what to expect. According to Jase Robertson, "Doves are the filet mignon of the sky." So I guess that I was more than curious. (And to answer your question, Yes. We watch every episode of Duck Dynasty. And then we watch them again. It is the only show that James thinks is worth watching.)
I was shocked at how good the dove tasted. I know most of it was my husband's cooking skills, but I was very impressed. I told him he could go dove hunting anytime he wanted, as long as he makes it for supper. :) Trevin didn't get any, not that we didn't try, but because he won't stick anything in his mouth that isn't fruit or sweets.
Farm life is moving along as normal. Harvest is just around the corner and the crops are looking great. We've finished up irrigating and I tried to help out when I could.
We also went to Husker Harvest Days (Trevin and my first time!) It poured on us, but it was still a good time. :)
I'm not going to lie, George has gotten us through the last few days...
Healing up, growing on the farm...
