|My broken foot in special shoe|
The next morning, I was seen by my Kaiser Permanente (highly recommended HMO) after-hours clinic doctor and given the awful news that the foot was broken and I would need to see a specialist to be fitted with a "boot". Long story a little shorter - I did not need a boot but a special shoe and I was told that I could walk wherever I wanted to as long as it was comfortable and I was not placing too much strain on the broken foot. Given the alternatives (e.g, heavy cumbersome boot, caste, surgery), I was ecstatic!
I was totally bored most of the week and decided to ease into some minor activities over the weekend. On Friday, I drove for the first time and found that the shoe did not impede my driving although continuous pressure on the foot did result in some aches so I decided I better not overdo it. I visited two estate sales and a consignment shop.
|This sale in Brookhaven had a lot of nice items at great prices - mostly accessories.|
|I thought long and hard about buying the top horizontal pictures for my "under renovation" basement. They were really long and narrow and thought would work well in the space and the price was $50 for both - a very good price.|
|Nice displays at Southern Comfort Consignments.|
In the afternoon, my husband accompanied me to the Pottery Barn Outlet Store in Dawsonville, Georgia (part of huge, very crowded outdoor mall area). I am looking for a 8X10 rug for our renovated basement. The new floor is a dark walnut stained engineered hardwood and I have selected a few pieces of furniture (from my own Wydeven Designs collection - see link)_ to use so it is time to start looking. I found this one below that would work with some but not all the pieces. I did like it however and the price was discounted about 45% from regular Pottery Barn prices.
|I really liked this wool rug but wasn't sure about the light colored (tones of goldish taupe - see below) upholstered pieces I plan to use with it. The built-in cabinetry in the room (as well as doors) are a charcoal grey so that would work well.|
