Workers comp appointment this morning. Doc says he think I need surgery, but is passing it to ortho for a consult. I had a tree branch fall on me last Jan at work during the storms. Now I’ve got decreased sensation in a couple finger and the thumb on my right hand. Probably 2 months on light duty. Shit. Comcast has been down for about 18 hours now. I was supposed to be working on some project stuff for work but since that wasn’t gonna happen I forced myself outside to do some yard work I’ve been avoiding. Had a couple of the planter beds start to fall apart, so grunted through patching those. Damn it.
One of the little neighbor girls saw me working like a mule (and probably cussing the whole time) and brought me some lemonade she made ‘just for me’. Pretty much water in a mason jar with half a lemon squeezed into it. Whatdya gonna do, I think she’s like 6.
I put away the shovel and hammer, I had about an hour left so I spun up a little tiny lidded bowl for her as a thank you. Walnut scrap base, maple scrap lid. Finished with friction polish and a little wax. Nothing special, but she loved it. Big toothy smile.
Turned out to be a pretty good day.
