Cottage Weekend With Some Changes....and Stitches....

For Friday I was prepared for the day.  Thursday night I made a giant 2 chocolate and Skor toffee cookie for Julie in our office who is leaving our campus.  I decorated it with royal icing and we were to share it on Friday.  I used the cookie recipe below which was very delicious.  For the giant cookie I covered my pizza pan with foil, greased it and spread out the dough in a circle.   It took about 25 minutes to bake.

I also baked the rest of the huge recipe found here that made about 60 cookies that I was taking to the Rockledge cottage in N.Y.   This was a roofing weekend and my sons and Marc's S-I-L were doing the job. 
I was heading out to another campus in the morning to facilitate a Personality Dimensions class to first year students.  Then I was heading to the cottage.
Then....this happened.  I won't share with you the way my foot looks right now.

The building's large heavy door somehow ran across my foot tearing a huge portion of the top of my foot.  Immediately I was swimming in blood in my favourite low heel shoes.  I drove myself to the hospital and had 4 stitches and a Tetanus shot.  Ouch.

I never did make it to the class and later in the afternoon managed to drive myself to the cottage.  I rested my foot all weekend and am still at home from work.  It is still swollen and sore and the stitches are still doing a bit of bleeding if I walk too much.

At the cottage we celebrated and ate Julie's cookie....

I hope you had a really nice weekend....and that my foot gets better quickly...

Oh you poor thing! My foot hurts in sympathy!

Well, I guess you can take some time to spoil yourself a bit and keep that foot elevated. Let others wait on you.
