Not sure what happened to yesterday evening. Things went very, very fast. For anyone who knows edgedancer, his mom is in the hospital and things haven't been good, so if you have a chance to spare a thought or two for her, I'm sure it would be appreciated.

We hosted a typical evening, although my new Blu-Ray player wouldn't play the home-made discs tiirz brought (boo!), so we watched Some Like It Hot in tribute to Tony Curtis, then decided to continue with our re-watch of Farscape even if our beloved framefolly isn't here anymore to watch it with us. We ate the grass-fed beef hamburgers we bought at the Farmer's Market with equally fresh veggies (we're so environmentally aware!) and some more of my leftover birthday cake (the Giant Chocolate Cake from Costco, which freezes nicely).

I feel very tired this morning, despite a good night's sleep. I had a strange dream which I can't remember much of, but I remember a strange house, a woman I had to assist, a tiny hand-made table and chairs I was trying to fix, and a couple of Roombas that I had to catch and empty of dirt so they'd work again. (Although the Roombas did look a lot more like Moya's little DRDs.) Maybe all that housework while I was sleeping made me tired.

The Farmer's Market we go to is up at a pretty little park, and this week, there were

Baby goats!


They were adorable. The booth actually specialized in things made from goat's milk (cheese, lotions, etc.), so I'm assuming one of their nannys just had some kids, although the sign said these were being bottle-fed, so perhaps they'd been orphaned. In any case, they were VERY cute, even if they were so intrigued by the little girl on the other side of their cage they wouldn't turn around for the camera!

Bonus shot, more cuteness:




My foot hurts again this morning. Probably is plantar fascia, like everyone says, although there doesn't seem to be any swelling, just the pain. And "worse in the morning," like Google Health says (behold the Interwebs, the joy of hypochondria!) -- but there's a lot of varying information. One says not to wear backless sandals, but my Skecher "Fitflops" feel pretty good with their thick, soft soles.

I'm liking the sitting around doing nothing.

They were really cuter than heck. I wanted to pet them, too, but my hands were full!

adorable goats.

I don't know Edgedreamer but i'm sorry to hear about his mom

Note: anything soft and/or barefoot makes plantar fascitis worse

Actually, you do know him -- it's Steve, from Tower Mountain days (Betel). He doesn't actually ever POST on LJ, mind you, but he does have an account.

But hard hurts...

oh okay I do remember him

I'm sure but soft and bare makes the damage worse. NSAIDS, firm shoes, elevation and ice would all help

All right, Doctor, I'll follow your advice. I have a few pair of shoes with good insoles, I'll wear those until I can get a few more pairs.

hopefully it'll help. also, calf stretches help a lot of this can get kicked off by tight achilles

Yeah, the more I read the more I wonder if it actually IS the plantar and not some other strange malady -- I do a lot of stretching usually, but maybe I just wasn't stretched out that day I did the long walk? Not sure. But I have my shoes with inserts on and I did stretches this morning, so... (Also, the pain is more along the outside edge and bottom of the heel, closer to the arch itself.)

well that's where the plantar fascia attachs however, you could also have just plain irritated the tendons that run thru there or even irritated the base of the 5th metatarsal and the pain is refering back

It's quite a bit better today. I did a good solid series of ankle/calf/heel stretches and wore sneakers with arch support insoles.

Kawaii! Baby goats!

My feet tend to hurt in the mornings, but that was because I wore those evil wedges for a while. They hurt in the ball of the foot and the toes and arch, mostly, and it goes away with walking. I'm dedicated to flats for the time being. Stupid cute shoes of evil, curse you!

Hey... when I started my job at the airport, I began having symptoms of plantar fasciitis. I read up a bit and they suggested putting arch & heel supports inside your shoes. I did, and haven't had foot pain in almost 2 years. Even when I don't wear shoes with supports for more than a week.

It might be worth a try.

I do have heel/arch supports in some of my shoes; I'll have to wear those this week until I can get a few more.

Bitty goats! Thank you. :-) And I never had swelling with the plantar fasciitis, so...ugh. I hope you don't really have it, because it sucks.

Well, it's continuing to hurt, so I'll follow the advice of the folks here who've a) had it, and b) were a podiatrist (cornerofmadness). *hugs friends list*
