ICY MORNING, SLOW MARKET

I should have stayed home today and charged for ice skating in our pasture this morning.It was 25 this morning ,but thankfully the wind has died down some.
Market was slow today. After carrying all my cakes in and setting up my hip caught again and in a cold sweat I had to sit down for a while. Luckily no customers came by until I felt better.
It was cold inside market today and I even had long handles on. It was no wonder almost everyone left early. I left a little early but a customer caught me in the parking lot to buy a cake,making me feel guilty for packing up early.
I ran my regular errands and made a couple Avon stops on the way home. It was after 5 when I finally made it here. We were planning to go work at church early tonight but with my hip pain back again I wasn't going anywhere but the couch on a heating pad.
And after putting all my animals to bed for the night that's exactly where I spent the evening. I think I've aggravated my ciatic nerve as I have done many times before,yeow!! If you've ever done this you can relate to the painful nerve pain starting at the waist and shooting down through your hip. Heat is usually the only thing that helps mine.
Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day because it is going to be a busy one.
It has been a cold day today the high was 39 and tonight at 11:30 it is 30.
Thankful tonight for God and praying for his grace as I strive to be a better person with each passing day.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, Love your Christmasssssy blog look... The header is beautiful... Is that a Currier and Ives?????

Gee--you had lots of rain --and then ice.... AND--there's even a more bitter and harsh front coming to us this weekend.... SO--I guess winter is here for good now...

George is cutting back all of the roses, covering the roots with mulch and putting them to bed for the winter....

Hope your hip is better today... That kind of pain is NO fun --especially for someone as busy as you are.

Hugs,
Betsy

I deal with sciatica. If you will feel around on that hip you can find "pressure points"-areas that are very tender. Usually they run from the top of your tail bone down to the outside of your hip. If you will place pressure (I use my knuckles or a tennis ball) on them for about 45 sec, it will help release that muscle. Hurts while your doing it but does help. I ice mine instead of heat.
You can also find some stretches online that help.
Hope you get some relief.
Blessings
