Two more to go this year. They'll be busy ones, with holidays and such.
I started off the month by hitting my little toe on a chair leg when I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night. That hurt! It still hurts when I walk on it. However, it didn't really bother me when driving, even though it is on my right foot. I'd have stayed home, except that I had promised out assistant rector that I'd talk to the 5- and 6-year-olds about prayer shawls. I sure am glad that there is an elevator to take me up to the classroom. I don't do stairs well anyway; I'm sure it would have been worse today. I felt a bit weird wearing sandals in November, but I think they looked better than sneakers, and other shoes just wouldn't do.
I can rest (read: sit with my foot up and knit) tomorrow, but on Tuesday and Wednesday I'll spend a few hours playing with my great-grandson, Brady. He's a sweetheart, but he IS a 3-year old boy. About a week and a half ago, when I was there with him, he brought a game of Sorry! out of his big brother's room. He was really cute 'reading' the cards and moving his piece every which way. He'll learn eventually, but I think it's his parents and older siblings (ages 14 and 12) who need to teach him.
