March 30th.

At last...a bit of excitement in my day. Early this morning I went out to push the snow off the roof of the hens quarters. I was nearly on the top rung of the ladder, pushing at the snow, when before I knew it, I was on my back looking up at the sky. Yep, the ladder moved and I flew off. Not only that, I ended up in a pile of old chicken wire I had thrown to one side. I managed to haul myself up, thought I might have broken my leg, but don't think so. However, body is trembling and aching and head is hurting. Will probably end up with a bit of bruising, if that.

So, after making sure leg or hip weren't broken, I hobbled around getting ready to go to Gander, dental appointment and shopping awaited. The highway was awful, slush and water all over. Everyone was driving much slower than usual. By the time we got to Gander there was a blizzard happening. We did manage to finish up all we had to do and by the time we were ready to come home the roads had cleared a good bit and the sun was trying very hard to shine.

Off now to try to get the broom down off the roof I was clearing when I fell.
