Smell the Roses

As dievca made her way to the composting area along the Hudson River there was a double blossom rosebush that gave off the most delightful of smells:

The composting guy has a passion for what he does and he explained the various plants grown by the volunteers to the Hudson Riverway Park.  In return, dievca was able to share the breakdown of corn starch packing materials via composting –> Carbon Dioxide and Water… 

Equals Happiness.

Happy Garden

Happy Garden

The crocuses, blue lily of the valley, hyacinth, daffidils, and tulips have blossomed in NYC — their timelines have blurred and it is creating a lovely burst of color along the Hudson River Pathway.


Hunter’s Moon to Ghost Moon = Moonset

dievca shook her empty wallet at the full moon this morning…maybe she will come into $$$. 🤞

Be careful~

“Be careful biking home dievca.”

I will, Master. I am not in any hurry.

dievca was cruising along nicely until here:

Hudson River Greenway bike path by 44th street

She slowed down and stood up to go over a set of metal plates after the Intrepid Museum and Circle Line section, but she didn’t see the 5″ pothole until too late…thunk~

Flipping up and over the handle bars –

SPLAT!

Years of falling in sports saved her head, collarbone and hands/wrists.  She flipped horizontally right and her knee/shin took the momentum, femur the impact, followed by the elbow then forearm. A gentleman walking his dog checked on her, immediately – a family (tourists) stared at her in horror.  dievca picked herself up, checked her appendages, moved to the side, checked her bike and rode home bleeding.

Can she tell you that everyone is correct?
Road rash is a b*tch to clean and it really hurts. Plus, you may end up bleeding on your sheets at night unless you cover your wounds.

Treating road rash
  1. Wash your hands. If you are caring for your own wound or another person’s wound, you should always wash your hands first. …
  2. Wash the injury. You should then wash the abrasion. …
  3. Remove debris. …
  4. Apply antibiotic ointment. …
  5. Cover the road rash. …
  6. Keep the bandage fresh. …
  7. Check for infection.

dievca washed her Road Rash with soapy water, then hosed it down with Bactine.   she added a thin layer of Neosporin ointment.  Arnica Gel on places where she thought bruises might blossom – adrenaline hid the hip/hamstring pain.  Two Aleve pills for the evening then a thorough icing of the thigh/a** in the morning. More wound cleaning and care — things seem to be moving along nicely.

Master will check it out on Monday~ so much for trying to be careful.
Sometimes Life will bite you in the a**.
