emedemarta has such a lovely shop. it makes me feel all calm and peaceful.
which is not what i felt last night after i cut my hand with a big old knife, passed out and whacked my head on a cupboard handle in the kitchen. have you ever passed out? i hadn't before last night. it is so totally weird. you're out for no more than 30 seconds, but that apparently is enough time to have a strange dream and wake up in a cold sweat. (and your eyes stay open. creepy.)
thankfully, mr. m is an old pro at passing out, and he took good care of me (he broke my fall. thanks!). i'm fine, really, the cut wasn't even that bad. i guess it was the thought of possibly having to go to the hospital and get stitches (which i didn't need). my head hurt more than my hand. needless to say, we had to reschedule our dinner guests to tonight.
so thank you, emedemarta, for a moment of tranquility.
