Look what my sister made!

My sister made this pretty dish to match the decor of a new bakery, Occassionally Cake, which they use it to display their absolutely delicious cake truffles.

Tennis & golf elbow..Who me?

Today the physical therapist told me it us unusual for someone to have tennis and golf elbow at the same time....with bursitis thrown in. Now anyone who knows me is aware that those are definately not my games. Once summer I took tennis lessons and about 6 weeks into it the instructor told me I was wasting my money - but I can lob that ball over the fence and across the street! Years ago my sister and I took golf lessons - the instructor told my Dad that we couldn't come back...but that is really Nancy's fault not mine. Everything I did was her idea - really!

Back to now, since I am all of 5' tall I have to use a step stool to reach - well that darn thing broke at a corner join and sent me flying through the air like a bona fide paratrooper except instead of a 3 point landing I made a one point landing on my elbow. Three weeks later it hurt more and you could smell my Extra Strength BenGay long before you could see me.I squashed my bursa while compensating for the  pain messed up the tendons on both sides of the elbow.

I have exercises, must do ice rubs, go to PT twice a week, and "take it easy" on the right arm. Well that will stop a lot of web surfing since I am not supposed to do it more than an hour a day and have to intersperse it throughout the day.

Gotta run - the cornbread is ready to come out of the oven - I stirred with my left hand.
