SERIOUS CUP COLLECTING

One of my knees does not look like it belongs to me this morning.
It doesn't hurt unless I try to sit or get up from sitting but it is really swelled.
I got out a heavier brace and put on it and that seemed to sturdy it up a bit.
Picked up my Avon order on the way to market this morning so I could bag it between customers. And like I expected market was slow today.
I had to take the brace off my knee shortly after I got there as my toes were starting to go numb. After lunch I used the ice pack out of my lunch cooler to hold on my knee and it seemed to help the swelling some and after I got it moving it felt okay.
I ran my errands and even shopped a bit in the end of summer sale at Walmart. When I went into Walmart the sun was shining and when I came out it was thundering,lightening and starting to rain. I hurried home to close my windows as I turned off the air conditioner yesterday and opened all the windows. By the time I got here it was pouring rain but no wind was blowing so no rain was blowing in any windows. I left the unloading until hubbie got here as I'm still moving slower than usual.
The rain stopped and it got steamy outside.
A neighbor had given me some okra at market and while I iced my knee hubbie fried it up and we had fried okra and fresh tomatoes for supper, yumm!
Hubbie and I went to work at church tonight, taking longer than usual because I'm moving slower.
Sometimes I wish I could just sit and do nothing for a while but I know me and I know I would surely not be happy doing nothing for long. So I'll keep trudging along until God gives me a new direction.
I collect cups or mugs ,anytime the kids or us go anywhere , it is a requirement to bring me back a coffee cup for my collection. Here is some of my collection in these nest 2 photos.

The reason this came to mind for me was this next picture I saw of the front gate to a place called "The Mug House".Now this is some serious mug collecting !!!
I wonder where this is and why they don't have to worry about someone breaking these?
Thanking God for my blessings today.
Good night and God Bless.

You collect mugs like we collect t-shirts, Marilyn. We have so many t-shirts alike --that I need another drawer or closet to put them in... ha ha ... We get a new one each time we travel...

Sorry about your knee... PLEASE get yourself to the doctor. Since yours doesn't hurt at night, it doesn't sound like a torn meniscus (which I had). Mine hurt WORSE at night....

We are taking our Prius into the shop for its usual maintenance this morning --and then headed for the Smokies for the day.

Have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

We love mugs as well, but I would never line a fence with them.

You are going to HAVE to take some time to put that leg up and ice that knee more often.

I got caught in that downpour myself. It just poured and just as suddenly it was over. If I'd waited a few minutes I wouldn't have gotten soaked.

Have a great weekend, and sit down with your feet up.
