Another cold morning with ice breaking to do. Hopefully with the upper 50's forecast for today there won't be any refreezing .
I am handicapped somewhat this morning as I have a very swollen, sore right thumb.
Last Wednesday morning as I put another log in the wood stove I banged the knuckle of my thumb against the hot inside of the stove when the log shifted and I jerked my hand. The temperature was 400 degrees in the stove so you can imagine I burned it pretty badly. I have been putting cream on it and trying to keep a bandaide on it as much as possible with all the hand washing I do.
This morning it is almost twice the size of my other thumb and really throbbing with pain each time my heart beats.
D-in-love met us at market with g-son who had just gotten a haircut on the way. D-in-love had a special music practice today for the program tomorrow at church.
G-son was a great help on this busy day as he carried in the boxed orders and ran for change while I waited on customers. When things slowed down he played games on the laptop until he and Pawpaw left to have lunch and shop at Sam's.
I stayed busy all day and am very thankful for all the customers that get my baked goods for their holiday gatherings and gifts.
I also picked up several more orders for the remaining three days before Christmas.
After market I made stops at Sav Mor, Aldi and Ingles on my way home. After hubbie helped me unload and get things put away I rested for a few minutes out in the sunroom snuggled with my 4-legged kids watching the electric fireplace flames.
A friend came by to pick up her caramel cakes and Aa brought a roll of hay to Cayenne the horse.
At chore time I discovered a mouse in my feed house when it ran across the toe of my boot giving me a scare. Hubbie came with a trap to hopefully rid me of the little critter.
After we ate supper we both spent a quiet evening watching TV country music shows. I held ice on my thumb and then soaked the bottom part in a bowl of vinegar but was afraid to get the open burn wound in the vinegar.
It isn't any better tonight but hopefully with some new burn cream I have to put on it overnight it will be better by morning.
I took this picture of the already set sun's reflection off the few clouds this evening.
Good Night and God Bless.
