no, she didn't...


Yes, she did...My entry for Idioms Wednesday:
She shot herself in the foot : she made a bad mistake for herself.

And also for: Outdoor Wednesday ···Watery Wednesday


This is my left foot, a partially torn ligament (while outdoors walking down some stone mountain steps) called for this charming ankle bracelet which I am supposed to wear until the end of the month. It's removable so that I can go into the water...but I should not swim! as long as I am nursing my ankle. So I literally sit in the pool on my garden plastic chair. It truly looks worse than what really is, I am able to walk without pain, I can drive, I just have to take it easy and it's not a good time to go hiking.

Update: thanks for all the get-well wishes!!

  4. You poor dear....Back in 1984 when the Olympics were here in Los Angeles, I broke by foot!!! It was a very very HOT summer, and I had a BIG Cast on my leg, so I was NOT able to swim or even get into the water! It's great that you can at least sit in the coolness of the pool....! It does look like it was not a good thing, that's for sure, but I'm glad you can drive and soak in the water, too....!

  10. I don't know. I think you could be a trendsetter if we show the photo to enough young people. I truly hope you're not too uncomfortable. Have a wonderful day.

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune and so glad it isn't real painful. Great shot for the idiom and for Watery Wednesday! That water sure looks refreshing.
    Love the dolphin!
