I managed to twist my left ankle but I don't remember doing it (I am really getting old). It hurts to put weight on it so I found one of my ankle braces from when I dislocated my other ankle and it's helping. So is sitting with my foot up. I think I'll wear my sneakers tomorrow with the brace. Mondays are not sit-at-my-desk days. I have to be able to walk around so I think I'll need the support. I'm fairly sure I didn't do more than twist it but I've heard all the stories about people who break bones in their feet and don't know it. If it's not better in a few days, I'll get it looked at.
I have some dough rising in the bread machine to make focaccia (onion bread) for dinner with some potato soup. I just have to boil some potatoes and chop onions and garlic for the bread and we have a warm, filling meal. I use Jeff Smith's (the Frugal Gourmet) recipe. It's easy and delicious and if you slice the bread in half, it makes wonderful sandwiches. I got some swiss cheese and some ham and now I've made myself hungry and it's 2 hours until dinner time.
No Christmas shopping was done this weekend. I didn't want to stress my foot and was not in the mood for it yet. I like to shop for the holiday and I'll get it done but I'm not ready yet to jump into the melee. I've been spending my time listening to some good books and working slowly but surely on the alpaca sweater. I'm noticing a small difference in the way the stitches look since I've divided the front and back. They seem tighter. I think it's because now I'm purling the in between rows and not knitting them as I was doing when I was knitting in the round. I hope when it's done and blocked that it won't show. No one else thinks it's noticeable but I can see it (you know how that goes).
I also read Stephen King's new book Full Dark No Stars. It's really good. Nothing supernatural or alien. Just people in all their dark and wondrous ways. It is not a nice, friendly book. The title says it all. I enjoyed every page. He has good insights into people and how they react to situations.
Have a good week.
