Sore neck and back

After three days of lying down, I am back on my feet again. Last Sunday evening, I fell after landing on the edge of a chair I didn't know had been placed below me and flipped backwards head-first into the floor. It happened too quick for me to realize what was happening, but I did feel the wave of pain. I lay there for about five minutes wondering if it was my back I'd broken or my neck. I had no feeling in my hands or feet for a while which was pretty crazy. Anyway, end result was that "bed" and I spent an unusual amount of time together over the last few days and now I am feeling heaps better... although, stiff upper lip aside, I'm probably still only at 50%. : ) The neck brace helps... as does rest, and I think I may have overdone it a bit today.

G’day! May your day be blessed! Today, God saw fit to bless me with two squashed fingers. I have no idea how it could be a blessing, but knowing God, it couldn’t be otherwise. But strike! It hurt. : ) All over town are advertisements from companies wanting to buy hair. Pity they don’t want nails, because I am soon going to have two spare ones!

For Australia Day, we invited the Australians we know in Ukraine to visit. We went down to the river and shovelled the snow off a section of ice for a cricket pitch and had a bit of a game. Then several of us took a dip in a hole we cut out of the ice. Here is a photo of Jesse jumping in. He loved it!

We are doing well.

It’s hard to believe this weekend is time change! The months have simply flown by since we changed our watches back! I am ready for greenness and other colours, and find these early spring days which are mostly sunless very dreary.
