^^ Yes, now that you mention it, why does anyone dig up rocks? The only time I've done it is when I've had to plant something.
Because you can find pretty ones like Lupine did.
I actually keep finding the geodes we had, which I will place in my gardens when I get everything done.
So, what has happened these last days... hmmm... Okay. I broke 4 knuckle joints, cracked my skull, broke my left shoulder and lower arm. My son got his right hip and left foot broken...
Naaah, just kidding. Actually what happened to my 4 knuckle joints was, I believe the technical term the doctor used was: "Wrenched the bejebus out of them." Actually, it was more like I went to quickly grab a bag of hay, caught the board it was leaning against and spread my fingers really far apart. Made me yelp. They turned a deep red and swelled, then turned black and blue.
My head has just gone through some really bad migraines. I love Spring, but the active weather feels like it's trying to kill me. Even today I've got an ice pick shoved into my brain and someone keeps twisting it to make it sure it doesn't stop hurting. The generic migraine pills barely give me 3 hours with a dose, so I get about 6 hours a day of less pain.
The left shoulder actually went through an RA flare, and shoulder flares are the worst. There is no sleep with them, no relaxing, just pain. And it affects the shoulder, upper arm, elbow, wrist, fingers and back. None of my other joints in a flare, cover that much area. The only way I can deal is to take my generic Excedrin migraine pills twice a day, plus aspirin twice a day. Did that for three days, now it just aches a little.
The lower arm is just a large bruise from a 2" x 4" x 6' that holds down the storage entrance tarp. It was up leaning against the corner, so the storage area was open, and I hadn't tied it in place yet. Well, the wind has been strong, and it was strong that day, so it caught the tarp and whipped that board down, swung it around and smack into my arm.
All of this made typing a pain, plus working in the house and feeding animals, kind of tired out the one good hand I had, depending on which side was in pain.
My son got clipped by his horse (she's not mine, she hates me, okay not hate, but if she needs any doctoring, it's hate). He was working with Cayli, and she has a tendency to get really annoyed if she doesn't like something (and she doesn't like anything!), so she kicked out at him, grazing his hip. He was a little sore, but fine. Then a couple mornings later, he was making Echo walk out of her shelter following commands, but she stopped to sniff something and he made her lift her head, back up, and start over. Only when she backed up, she swung around and backed the opposite direction (sometimes there is no understanding why they do what they do). As she did this she "tripped" over a small mound of dirt and fell down (it was muddy). He stepped up to try to help her as she flailed about, which you don't do, and she struck out with a front leg to stand, catching him on the foot. That one hurt him and for days he had to be careful how he stepped on it, then one day he kind of pushed on it and something "popped", apparently into place.
After that he felt better and it has since healed.
He takes after me, I'm so proud of him.
