The joys of farm/homesteading life: the sun, the animals rubbing against you for a pet, the joy of new life, the attacking chicken waterers. Blood sickness notice: It’s only bad for those who get sick at the sight of a small amount of blood. It’s not like a gaping wound or anything. Just a small nail injury. However, for those with sensitive tummies, I will put a break in the post.
This is what happens when you are not paying attention to how you’re holding the half-full water container when you go to empty it so you can put in fresh water:
I didn’t feel any pain when it happened; just a lot of pressure. Taking off my glove was fun, because the nail, with my hand parallel to the ground, was pointing up at the sky. I popped it back into place before my pain receptors finally woke up and registered what happened. I cut the nail down as far as I could without hurting myself further, so it wouldn’t catch on anything and pull the nail even farther off the bed. A bandage was wrapped around it to hold it in place while it heals.
I had a full day planned, but my priority was cleaning the basement area where I wanted to try to start seeds. You know, the ones that should’ve been started two weeks ago. Argh. We have a short growing season, so any delay is not good. The area is right in front of a big sunny window. Unfortunately for the cat, his cabinet and stuff is there so it’s finding a new home.
This is going to slow me down a bit, though I did adapt quickly to typing without that finger. If I forgot, it reminded me fairly quickly. I’m one of those people who get annoyed when they are injured. I am quite annoyed, especially because it happened before coffee. Then again, that might be a good thing.
