One Week Down. How Many Left to Go?

I have been out of commission with this sprained ankle for one week now. It is just making me crazy, because this is a really great time for riding in Northwest Indiana. Our trees are almost at peak color, and the temperatures are mild.

Sunday was particularly difficult -- it was really nice outside, and it was exactly the kind of day when we would have gone for a ride. I was in the kitchen cooking and I heard a friend's voice calling out a "hello" to me. Sure enough, it was Dolly, Tom and Terri stopping by for a visit. They had been out riding -- I was so envious!!! Here they are, on their horses getting ready to leave. Look at these pictures of them on their horses and enjoying a wonderful fall day....



Now look at this picture of me with this contraption on my foot, unable to ride.....Who do you think is having the better time????
You have to look up on the deck of the house to see me.....

How did you sprain your foot? I hope it wasn't horse related! I'm trail riding today with my husband....could be the last real warm day in Indiana...will love the trees! Take it easy!
