Elk WA footwear fashion capital

left foot in clog, right foot in ankle brace sock and sandal.

Here is a picture of my great footwear fashion in Elk. I have spent the last 5 weeks on crutches nursing a broken fibia. I broke it while walking out to the compost pile.  The prior week was spent with grandkids doing Silverwood, swimming, hiking, and mountain biking but I break my leg walking through the yard to the compost pile. Really. Oh yeah!

Those of you who see us in “real life” know that in our home this crutch thing has been a real ordeal (stairs to the max). Having to spend the majority of time in the basement for 4 weeks, has been difficult but now I am able to do stairs and work in my studio on the main floor and …cook again. I even rode in with Pete to town and went grocery shopping and walked down to the garden this Sunday. Woo Hoo!

Kudos for Pete who is always there when I need him, working all day and cooking and cleaning for us when he gets home. He has always been an absolute angel in my life. I am truly a lucky woman. Anyhow I CELEBRATE! Not having to use crutches and just walking in the cast on uneven ground outside for two more weeks. My hands are free to carry stuff. On flat ground I am allowed to use a ankle brace to keep it from twisting – I just don’t tell them that in our house the “flat ground” involves two 16 step staircases. FYI I am not winning any races. I should be able to start driving again soon though. Hope so, I wouldn’t want to miss ski season. Yep. LOL
